You can search the forums under rear tailgate, door handle wont open etc. This is kinda a normal problem.
The handle it self can break a small plastic piece inside which requires the handle/mechanism replaced.
The electric door actuator can also get stuck and need replacement.
It is a matter of removing the tailgate inside plastic panel cover, and inspect it.

You may be able to get the tailgate open by removing the square inspection cover, did you do a search?
