Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the lock cylinder stopped working before the electric release stopped then you most likely have more than one issue. You may have a mechanical issue with the latch, lock cylinder or linkage, and there may be a separate electrical issue with the electric release. You're most likely going to need to get the trim panel off for inspection and to get the liftgate open.

Do you know what is wrong with the lock cylinder?
