Hi Piloteers...here's a weird one. The rear hatch on my 2012 EX-L will occassionally pop itself open. It will also not function if I use the button on the tailgate, but does work when I use the remote or front door button. Also, occassionally, it will not close when using the remote button. Most of this is intermittent. Thanks for any advice!

Is your car battery dying? I’m not kidding. Ours was going and the tailgate would work sporadically. It uses a lot of power to operate. Once I replaced the battery the problems went away.

The locks on at least the drivers side are chained together. I had the rear hatch only work by remote and driver door button too.

Turns out the driver and rear driver doors needed new lock units. First the driver went, months later the rear driver. Replaced them myself. Each will take about 1.5 hrs, parts and door panel pry tools. It’s not hard but tough maneuvering in the door. Bought the parts online.
