I’ll have to guess what kind of vehicle you’re having problems with as the posted vehicle (Mercury Sable) doesn’t have a “tailgate”..

Usually there is an object caught in the latch - article of clothing, etc.. Sometimes the gate can be forced open by having a helper pushing release and someone else pushing from inside with feet.
