Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The problem may be electrical or mechanical. The problem may be with the release solenoid or it's wiring, the latch may have failed mecahically, or there may be an adjustment issue or something foreign closed in the liftgate preventing it from opening.

Some PT Cruisers had a lock cylinder in the liftgate to open it manually. Does yours?
Is this a convertible?

No...when you lock or unlock you can here all the others but the liftgate...not a convertable

Does the key fob have a separate liftgate button?
