Default 2003 Vue-back hatch won't lock?

I have a 2003 V6 Vue and noticed recently that the back hatch will not lock. has anyone experienced this or know what could be causing it? The rest of the doors lock, just not the back door. There is no key hole so I have no other option but to leave it unlocked all the time. This car is garage kept and we live in the south.

Our 2003s have keyholes in the liftgate - are you sure? Anyway, I would try some greaseless lube on the lock mechanism and inspect the latch loop on the body to see if it's loose. Stand by the closed liftgate and use the lock button on the remote to see if you can hear the lock working.

Ok, I double-checked and we do not have a keyhole on the rear hatch. There is a hole next to the lift latch on the door, but it's solid--no place for a key...if that makes any sense. We have power door locks (don't know if this matters). I was able to move the loop on the inside to the locked position, but then the door won't close We are supposed to take it in to the Saturn dealer on Saturday, but I'm worried they will tell me it's going to cost hundreds of dollars to fix. We've had problems with this dealership in the past...
Also, I do not hear any noise from the rear door when the LOCK button is pushed...only from the other four doors. Is this just a freak thing?

Because there's no noise, the lock either has quit working or power is not getting to it. Maybe later in the 2003 model year they deleted the keyed lock. I have to admit I haven't used my key on the liftgate more than twice, but now I see why it's a good thing to have.
