Question about 2002 Saturn VUE

1 Answer

Check Engine Soon Light

On my 2002 Vue the check engine light keeps coming on. The first time it was the crank sensor that was bad now the light comes on and I take the car to my mechanic and he can find nothing wrong and resets the light. Does anyone have the slightest idea of what could be happening?

    Same problem. Tennessee Saturn Dealerships can not find the problem. Saturn dealers reset the light and the light comes back on within one day. Fact is the cps was replaced by a Saturn dealer and then the light came on and continues to stay on. The Saturn Dealerships in Knoxville, Johnson City, and Bristol can not reset a simple engine trouble light.

    However, there is a local mechanic with the proper electronic equipment that did reset the light with success.

    The Authorized Saturn Dealers in East Tennessee do not have the training and equipment to properly work on Saturn autos. One local mechanic does.

    i had the same problem. with a 1997 Saturn SL1 ..and after paying numerous amounts without any success. I decided to try a higher octane rated gasoline 93 , in addition you shouldn't let your gas tank run below 1/4 tank or your light will come on especially if you make a quick stop in traffic.since trying this simple solution I've never had a problem with the service engine light again.

Tc52 Every time your check engine light comes on there should be a code. there is no such thing as just a light coming on. there is a reason. if you take your car to a autozone or advance auto parts they will come right out and read it right in front of you and tell you what the code is and what it means when you find this out e-mail for further assistance

did you replace both 02 sensors? 02 sensors and camshaft position sensor do most of the engine timing. A bad vacuum hose will throw the timing off as well.

Thi could be a crank sensor/ cam sensor problem. It could be a grounding problem or a variety of problems. Did the check engine light come on? If so, then get a scan done to identify the exact cause of the problem.
