Lift Gate Trouble

Hello so my i had the typical master lock circuit failure so i re-soldered and it fixed everything but the only thing it didn't fix was the lift gate. It doesn't lock or unlock with the power unlock but it will manually unlock... help !

Take your $6-18 volts/ohms multi-meter that you bought at the local hardware store, auto parts store, home improvement store or WalMart type store and test for 12 volts at the solenoid. Also use the meter to check continuity of the tailgate wire harness. There is either a mechanical/electrical malfunction, or a lack of 12 volts power, or lack of ground due to faulty wires.

Okay I'll do that tomorrow. Also where the cluster of wires are that become visible when the lift is up seems to have been cut open but I can't find a bad connection
