Powerlift gate won't open

The handle has stopped working a long time ago. I can use the remote or the button by the driver console. However, when I do either, the door barely opens, I hear the lock relock itself and try to close itself.

If I use the remote and I pull on the door, I can get the gate to open. Again, I can hear the lock relock immediately. My first thought was the struts. I replaced both sides with new ones but the problem persists.

It seems, there's some sort of sensor somewhere that detects if the door is 'closing' and ensures the lock is locked. It relocks really fast, the gate is barely an inch open before it relocks.

Is there a 'door is closed' sensor somewhere?

Without replacing the whole handle/locking mechanism, can it be repaired?

This is a 2007.
