Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If you don't hear the lock actuator when locking and unlocking and are unable to move the lock linkage at the latch then the failure is with the latch itself and it will need to be replaced. What you'll need to do is break up/dismantle the latch until you're able to rotate the pawl and manually open the liftget, then the latch can be removed and replaced.
