Default 2007 Vue Liftgate wiring repair

I'm hoping that by re-posting in a different forum, I might find someone with some suggestions to fix this dilemma.

Thanks be to the almighty termite, whose hole alignment to manually lock/unlock the liftgate in my Vue was so spot on I only needed to drill a 3/8 inch hole for access.

But now the problem wasn't the lock actuator, of course. Once open, the actuator worked perfectly. My first instinct was that it was getting weak after 150,000 miles and that I should still put in the replacement not a big deal and only $50 expended. With the new OEM part in place, I found the same result the actuator works when the liftgate is open but not closed. So, I pulled the rubber boot out of the body and liftgate and I see bare copper on some of the wires. Unfortunately, there is no where near enough slack for me to pull this clump of wiring out far enough to effect repairs.

So, my question then becomes, does the liftgate wiring harness feed all the way back up to the fuse box, etc. or is there another connector under the headliner such that the liftgate wiring harness could be disconnected and just plugged back in? If such a thing is possible, does anyone know the part number for the wiring harness? If such a thing isn't possible, does anyone have a wiring diagram so I know which wires I have to try and deal with in that wiring mess?

Thanks, as always, for everyone's valuable assistance.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Have you considered subscribing to alldata or Mitchell for online access to service manuals? I had access to both and they are either direct copies of factory service manuals or better. A member here was gracious enough to allow me (limited) access to his subscription to alldata for his '08 Vue while someone else shared temporary access to Mitchell online. Mitchell has color wiring diagrams for great contrast. Both are worth the subscription. Some members here were able to access alldata, free from their local library.

I have subscribed to Alldata DIY in the past. I'm not sure that the wiring diagrams are going to show me where the wiring harness actually physically plugs together. I was hoping for some first-hand guidance in that direction.

Go to your local pick and pull and do a little investigation on a like vehicle. Take a camera and notebook and make your own diagram.

great idea ... but already explored that option and there has been nothing in my immediate vicinity for me to check out or scavenge ... the best "you pick" places around here stopped allowing diy-ers to pick through their stuff ... maybe liability issues?

thanks for the fantastic idea though ... it is greatly appreciated!
