Silly question - but you did check that the dash switch is not turned off, right?
Like salguod sated bad support struts, I got a pair from Rockauto made in the USA and the problem was fixed.Texmill said:my power liftgate on my '08 outlook is only going about 1/2 way up then goes back down. If I manually assist it the rest of the way up it doesn't stay up, if you let go it slams all the way back down. Any ideas?
I have this exact same issue on my 2008 Saturn Outlook XR. Did you ever figure out how to fix it? I also hear the motor for the latch doing its job. Pull the door shut and latch is it like it’s supposed to. But nothing happens when I use the electric button on the fob, or in the vehicle, or on the trunk for that matter. All I get is the noise from the motor that latches the door. I’ve already swapped out the motor assembly with the gears from one in a junkyard, and that didn’t do anything. I also replaced that computer that everything plugs in to back there with one out of another vehicle. Still same results. I really don’t know what else to do.Anyone have experience with the rear power liftgate not working? My 2007 Outlook liftgate no longer works via the key fob or the touch switch located on the liftgate. I can open the it manually but the liftgate will not open or close automatically. I have checked the 30 amp fuse under the hood and its OK. Is there something else it could be other than the Power Liftgate Control Module? If it is the PLCM does anyone know what these cost?
