Will it open manually when you use the button on the hatch handle? If not, you may be stuck for some reason. There is a procedure for opening the hatch manually described in the owners manual. I'm not familiar with the 2009 so don't know exactly where that manual release is.

Also double check to make sure the glass hatch is fully latched. That will keep the hatch from working.

Here is the manual opening instructions.
