Check for broken wires at the left hinge for the rear hatch. Our car was doing crazy locking things because of this. Very common. Peel back the rubber boot to inspect/repair. I had 4 or 5 broken wires (and several others about to go). Easiest fix is with small red in-line butt splices, but you could spend big bux, buy the harness (if even available), and spend the labor time to tear apart the hatch (not fun and some plastic will break along the way). I used the butt splices, worked out fine.
HTH and good luck.
