Mazda repair questions? Ask mechanics for answers ASAP
Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today. In some cases, I may need more info to assist better. I apologize for any delay.I try to be here most weekdays and some weekends. If you respond and I do not respond back right away I will do so as soon as I can.
Do you hear any noises near the hatch area at all when trying to open it?
Let me know,thanks Pete
O.k., unfortunately on this model here the Rear electrical control module controls the rear hatch signals to open and close it or unlock and lock it as well. There is no separate fuse. It is tied into the other locks and latch operations. The switch sends the signal to the rear electrical control module and the control module then sends the signal to the latch itself to release it.
In most all cases what fails is the rear lock/latch assembly itself needing to be replaced. I have seen this fail several times before in the past. The signal wires will need to be tested leading to the latch to make sure that this is the cause here.

I work on delivering the best answer and help here but in some cases, it can be difficult to do without seeing the vehicle.
I posted my answer above the same time you posted so I am not sure you received it so I will post it again for you just to make sure:
Now since it is working again if it starts to act up again then the latch most likely needs to be replaced. There is a chance it may act up again.
