The tailgate will not open on my 2011 ML350, motor going,

Customer Question
The tailgate will not...

The tailgate will not open on my 2011 ML350, motor going, but will not open with fob, or latch on drivers door, or by pulling outside tailgate lever.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fob's battery?

Yes, works for everything else well

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your ML350 yourself? What have you tried so far?

The fob, the latch on the driver's door and pulling on it from outside. Would like to fix it myself if I can.
