I have a 2006 Honda Odyssey. The tailgate latch is causing me problems. Most of the time, the door will not unlock when I press the unlock button on the key fob. I can unlock the door by removing the panel above the door latch and inserting my key into the white mechanism and turning. After I do this the tailgate will unlock a few times, but you can here it straining to do so. I assume I need to replace something. Is this an accuator problem? A latch problem? Is the replacement a DIY job?

My 04 did a similar thing, dont' know if it applies to the 05. The manual lock push pin (for lack of better terminology) on the liftgate was the problem. The very top of it broke off and would get stuck on the body trim and push the latch back locked. the only way to open it was to hold it unlocked with the key, and then lift the handle.
