There is a small plastic cover on the inside of the liftgate near the center. Pry it off with a small screwdriver and you'll have to probe around a bit with a larger flat screwdriver, but there's a small lever in there that will trip the latch. Is it a power liftgate by chance???
I have parts if needed...

    I have not seen it on any of our outlooks (even flood cars), but if what mr_aquaman says is correct, you can use some contact cleaning acid on the connections and then apply dielectric grease to the connections liberally. reconnect and reassemble.

If you have the same problem I did it is the electronic switch in the rear hatch. The seal around the handle is not that great and leaks water, this causes corrosion and stop the mechanism from working. Mine would only work on occasion on warm sunny days. I had to have the switch replaced on warranty.... check with your dealer.

2008 Saturn outlook xe liftgate won't open


If the liftgate doesn't open with the key or power lock assembly the door will have to be disassembled from the inside. This can be a tricky procedure as the panel is not designed to be removed with the door closed. The lock solenoid is most likely the issue. I would have a pro repair it to avoid having the inside panel/trim pieces damaged

It's now a recall item. See below.


NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 15V415000
Component: STRUCTURE:BODY:HATCHBACK/LIFTGATE
Manufacturer: General Motors LLC
Potential Number of Units Affected: 686287

Year: 2009
Make: Chevrolet
Model: Traverse
Manufactured
from: 2008-07-06
to: 2012-02-29
Recall Date: 2015-06-30
-->
Summary:

General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2008-2012 Buick Enclave vehicles manufactured January 3, 2007, to February 29, 2012, 2009-2012 Chevrolet Traverse vehicles manufactured July 6, 2008, to February 29, 2012, 2007-2012 GMC Acadia vehicles manufactured September 15, 2006, to February 29, 2012, and 2007-2010 Saturn Outlook vehicles manufactured August 17, 2006, to March 18, 2010. The affected vehicles, equipped with the power liftgate option, have gas struts that hold the power liftgate up when open. These struts may prematurely wear and the open liftgate may suddenly fall.

If the open liftgate unexpectedly falls, it may strike a person, increasing their risk of injury.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will update the software for the power liftgate actuator motor control unit so that the motor will prevent the rapid closing of the lift gate, free of charge. Owners were mailed interim notices on August 3, 2015. Owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts become available. Owners may contact Buick customer service at 1-800-521-7300, Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020, GMC customer service at 1-800-462-8782, and Saturn customer service at 1-800-553-6000. GM's number for this recall is 15240.

My Saturn Outlook liftgate falls down after you open it


buy a new pair of gas liftgate struts on eBay for about 50 bucks. there are just a few ways to anchor them which will become evident when you see the fasteners on the new ones. i have changed these on 3 saturn wagons, never took more than 15 minutes for both. generally snap off a cover, pull it off a ball joint and install in reverse order

two pieces of advice:
1) you are going to need some type of hoist, jack, or tree branch to hold the door fully open while you work on it. do not trust a woman or kid to do this unless you will be wearing a helmet.

2) get a spray can of chain lube at a parts store and spray it ilberally around all joints and shiny metal surfaces before you put the new ones on.

2003 Saturn Vue rear liftgate won't open


The easy part is you just need the latch for the liftgate. The hard part is getting to it and opening the liftgate to replace the latch. You should be able to pull the liftgate trim off most of the way with the gate closed and try to manually actuate the latch to open the gate. You may have to go so far as breaking the latch from the inside to open the gate and then replace your latch.
