Hi, just wanted to make this post so that eventually someone googling the same problem I had may find this useful. I have a 2008 Chevy Equinox with an electrical liftgate release. The liftgate would not open anymore. There is a fuse in position #4 in the fuse panel at the passenger's left foot. The fuse was fine. What I found was the release mechanism motor was jammed. I took it apart, unjammed it and put it back together. Also the switch was failed from my family thinking pushing harder on the switch a thousand times would work! LOL. This is easily replaced by removing the two screws on the outside.
