    we recently bought a 1995 sw2.
    the rear hatch release will not work from the remote release.
    also the rear keylock does not work(key broke off ,have used one ordered
    from joe@6th planet).until i get the keylock from joe this is a real pain in
    the @$$ for my wife.
    i was wondering if anyone has any experience trouble shooting the rear hatch
    remote release.
    one saturn dealer said it needed a new cable , the other said it was
    electrically operated.
    after taking the interior trim off the hatch it was found that it is indeed
    i have a haynes saturn manual but cannot find that circuit in the manual for
    trouble shooting.
    i have pulled every fuse in both the interior and exterior fuse boxes and
    all are fine.
    is there a relay that controls this??is so where??
    the solenoid in the hatch seems fine(not seized)is there anyway to test its
    operation?if i apply 12v to it and it unlocks does this prove its operation?
    it has 2 wires black and blue ,also the remote release by the drivers seat
    has 2 wires(also black and blue).
    i would appreciate any info that anyone has on this problem. you can email
    me directly or reply to the group

  2. I have a 95 SW1. the release on mine is a cable. Under the latch in the
    interior is a small panel which looks like you could pry it off to gain
    access to the mechanism if the cable were to break.
