I have the same problem and am still working on the fix, however, I can tell you how to manually get it unlocked/locked.

Climb inside the interior (I am assuming you can not open the hatch) and start in the upper right hand corner (no particular reason, you can start in the left if you like) and simply pull the interior door panel off the door. The cover just unsnaps and should release with just a little pressure. Do this for the top and the right and left sides and stop! There are two screws on the bottom of the panel that you will only be able to get to once you open the hatch!!

Reach inside the door and at the top of the lock assembly (it should be the tallest piece in the lock assembly closest to the door itself) is a lever that you should be able to move left/right. Flip that and the door will be unlocked. This lever is also connected to another piece a bit lower in the assembly, but that lever seems to move a bit easier than the other.

Be careful when you open the hatch as it is now only being held on with the two screws at the bottom of the hatch and the interior light electrical assemblies. So, if you are going to remove the cover completely, unhook the wiring assemblies, remove the screws and you should now have full access to the door/lock.

Simply reverse the process to put the cover back on.

Liftgate on 2005 uplander won't open


The locking mechanism on the rear lift gate for the Chevy Uplander has some plastic and rubber-coated parts that can get jammed. If you can pull back the panel from the inside top near the glass, you can reach down and try to spray some silicone lubricant into the lock. This could help get those parts unstuck so they spring back when you pull on the handle latch from the outside. Once you get the rear hatch open, I recommend taking out the locking mechanism and thoroughly lubricating it. Your rear lift gate will start to release very easily from then on.

2002 Saturn Vue rear passenger door will not lock


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.

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.
