is the linkage moving and not actuating the latch?
or is the linkage immobile?

I had the same problems on mine for both back doors, what happend was the latch inside the door was down a bit ( as if you had the handle pulled a bit) so when to doors were locked and it got stuck that way, the door wouldn't unlock and allow you to open it. This may or not help you.
