Most of the time this is a fault with the tail gate latch itself with the latch being defective needing replaced.I have had to replace this before for this issue here.Unfortunately the interior door paneling needs removed when the door is stuck closed to access the latch to try and manually release it then replace it from there.When this is done though this can sometimes damage the internal paneling with it needing repaired or replaced after the latch is replaced.
