Hatchback door won't open, door sensor says it's open. on 2004 Pontiac Vibe

Opening with the handle I can hear the pins open or at a least one unlatch. I can also hear the door pin/pins clutch when the door latch button is pressed on the dash. The doors are unlocked. And the door sensor reads door is open. Also the rear wiper and defroster are working right now either, all not working at the same time.
