Saturn 2008 outlook.I can't get the manual lift gate to open. I think it is the lock or power to the lock. When working I heard a click when locking or unlocking doors. Now, no noise either locking or unlocking from the lift gate area.
Do you
have the same problem?

It sounds like you lost the fuse or the relay here are two guides to help you run some simple tests to see which one it is.

and

There is a PLY PCB relay and an audio fuse that runs the system here are the tail gate wiring diagrams and the fuse and relay locations.

Check out the diagrams (Below)

Please let us know what you find. We are interested to see what it is.

Cheers
