Hatch button not working nor keyless entry button

hello there, i just bought a 2006 ZXW, and the back hatch opens with the key but not with the buttons. when i press the button i hear an electronic click, but the door does not pop to where i can lift it. what would be some simple things to look at?

The wiring that goes thru the umbilical to the hatch, the wires often crack in that little spot.

The latch makes an electric motor noise.
If you only hear a click, that might just be an integrated relay closing in the Generic Electronic Module.

try this, press the hatch button while pulling up on the hatch.. if it opens then, then the rubber strikers may need adjustment on the hatch to keep proper resistance against the hatch. if not the actuator may be going bad.

I had this happen on my zx3 but I think my hatch wasn't fully closed so I pushed it shut hard and then it worked.
