You've probably already solved this, but here's my experience:

I had this problem once. I was under the impression that something was stuck in the latch area (ie, a strap). The car thought the tailgate was open and would honk when I attempted to lock it.

I was able to open it by having someone pull on the outside (not too hard as to prevent them from pulling off the handle/trim) while I applied about 150lbs of force from the inside. It took everything I had but I was able to get it to pop open without damage.

After I opened the tailgate I couldn't find anything blocking the latch. The problem hasn't recurred. Strange.

Looking to install a front-bumper hitch, lift-kit (if I can find one), rear access ladder, front sump guard and rear tank guard.
