I had a similar problem with my car 2 or 3 years ago. The unlocking of the tailgate was intermittent, and began to get worse. There is a microswitch actuated by the "handle" that opens the tailgate. This microswitch was accessible after removing the bottom, inner lining of the tailgate (this task is not difficult). I bent the microswitch actuator lever to improve its operation. This worked for a while, but the switch became intermittent again. The dealer replaced the microswitch (under warranty) at the next visit. Hope this is of help:)
