So a month ago at the airport no less the rear hatch wouldn't unlock pushed the unlock button 100x nothing happened. Few days later magically it was unlocked again. I assumed all was well until yesterday I went to open it and the alarm went off I discovered the car is locked but the hatch wasn't and now won't lock at all. :suspect: any idea what's going here? Guess least the alarm goes off lol.

Lock actuator is bad and will need replaced

It involves removing the inside trim panel

You can get it on rock auto cheaper then the dealer pricing

My 05 did the same thing. Actuator is right in the center of the door. I was able to get my hand between the trim pieces from the inside of the truck with the door closed to unlock it. Once the door is open pull off the trim and replace. Easy job once the door is unlocked.

It's currently unlocked. I'm assuming once I get the back off its pretty strait forward to replace it? Looks like eBay has the part for $30
