I can't even open the end gate now it never unlocks
Saturn Mechanic: Chad Farhat, ASE Certified Technician A6 - Electrical / Electronic systems A7 Heating / Air conditioning systems replied 28 days ago

click on link to view wiring diagram

we have 3 fuses ,the main is a 30 amp fuse in the under hood fuse box you need to check

then we have lift gate module

and we have the lift gate motor assembly itself

and the ground to that circuit

most likley the fuse, then motor them module usually in that order they go ,unless you have some stuck on the latch like paper towel etc .

but testing is needed

\

If you do not mind me asking ,are you looking at fixing this yourself or looking to know the most possible cause of this issue and taking it to repair shop for the work ?

Do you have any prior experience in electrical troubleshooting and testing with a test light for power & ground ?

Do you have a test light & or power probe for testing ?

Did you scan it with factory scanner or equivalent & faults retrieved ?

Please let me know

Thank You

I can't see the picture my liftgate is a manual lift gate just the lock is electric and I can't even open it manual
Saturn Mechanic: Chad Farhat, ASE Certified Technician A6 - Electrical / Electronic systems A7 Heating / Air conditioning systems replied 27 days ago

well if that is the case, then we have take the interior from cargo are off, seat ,trim carpet and get to the back of it take the panel off and unlock that way and say what failed

that is the only way if the fuse are good and you can not use the handle and none of the repairs i sent you apply , not easy job time consuming but there is no other way

unfortunately
