2002 Saturn Vue rear passenger door will not lock

My kid slammed my rear passenger door and now it will not lock. it will open and close fine, but the lock will not move.

Any ideas if this can be fixed at home or do i have to take to Saturn (they will probably charge a fortune!)

It sounds like the the linkage, actuator (power locks), or the mechanism has broken or become dislodged.
On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Pull back the weather seal and you should see everything and hopefully see the cause.

This power comes from the main driver's door switch. The wiring in the driver's door hinge area is known to break where it flexes, and the switch can fail from rain getting in it or just wear.

Passenger door will not open from the inside or outside


Hi, check if the child lock is set on. Some cars will have a child lock on the rear doors to prevent the kids from opening the door on the inside. On some models electric door lock maybe at fault.
Good luck.

When I open or close the back door on my saturn vue it makes a clunking sound. How do I open up the inside pannel to take a look


Assuming you have no trouble with the window coming off the track and no kids to drop junk inside the door, is it possible that the clunk is the lock getting sticky? Try putting a little WD 40 on the door catch and close and open the door a few times to see if that makes a difference. If it does, make a lasting fix by adding a few drops of 3 in 1 oil.

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.
