Oh man, I had that happen on my 03, there is a little plastic thing on the opener that broke. if you can't open your tonneau I have no idea because i had to pull the panel on the inside of the tailgate off to get to the mechanism.

try lifting your tailgate handle & look for bolts or clips
i believe on the newer Rams, it is just plastic clips & you can pop the handle off enough to work the latching bars
