Question about 2005 Saturn VUE

1 Answer

Headlights turn on when car is parked

I travel quite a bit with my Saturn, 2005 Vue 6 Cylinder Vehicle. The
other night while at the motel they called me at 4:30 AM we arrived at
the motel at 12:30AM. The call told me my headlights were on, We did
not leave them on but we went out and got them off finally after fighting
with the switch. We got the car jumped in the AM on departure. We got
home friday afternoon, that night at 10:00PM I looked outside and they
were on again. I shut them off, however saturday night they went on
again and again a dead battery didnt see it on time. I have the automatic system on the car so when they come on at night when on the road they are on auto. Is there a way to bypass this system and go
manual it would be safer for me, I think.
Thank You

I know that Saturn is made by GM. I own an '02 Blazer, and I have to bypass the automatic headlights by either setting the e-brake, or by pushing my "Dome Override" button 4 times. Given the fact that your vehicle is a few years newer and a Saturn rather than a Chevrolet, chances are that the process to disable this feature (or annoyance is probably different. Try scrolling through your users manual and looking for a section labeled "Daytime Driving Lamps" or "Automatic Head Lamps". Some vehicles, such as Impala's and Malibu's as well as some of the Buick's will not allow you to disable this feature. However, if it CAN be disabled, it will be described somewhere in the manual.
Hope this solves you problem and keeps you from having to get any more jumpstarts. Have a great day!

My 2005 saturn vue makes a loud noise,shakes,wont go very fast and shuts off

The only thing that can make a loud noise shakes and go very fast, Is a open TAC (Throttle actuator motor) being stuck open. This applies to a 4 cylinder and 6 cylinder.A disconnected MAF (mass air flow) if this duct came out same situation, Just inspect the duct make sure its on.

2005 saturn vue...the ignition key is getting harder and harder to get to turn...even parked on even ground..usually have to play with the steering wheel to make it work...but its getting worse

Me too. I found the keychain I had was quite heavy and heard that could be a problem. Also when I turn the key now I lift the key upwards and have had no trouble lately. Hope that works for you too.

I have a 2005 Saturn Vue. When I hit the brakes and let off the pedal all the way, I have no problem. But, when slowing down and only letting off the pressure I put on the pedal a little and then applying...

Master cylinder would be the obvious solution, but it seems a bit soon for a six year old vehicle, unless you do a tremendous amount of short distance stop/start driving. You could try bleeding the brakes and renewing the fluid, but I doubt if that will solve your problem, it definitely sounds like worn seals in the master cylinder.

2005 Saturn Vue AWD 6 cylinder whistle

Hi all,
I currently own a 2005 saturn vue and also a 2002 saturn vue. My 2005 began making the same whistling sound around 36000 miles, I let it go and let it go. Finally it got so bad I could not deal with it any longer, I have a great mechanic and he automatically point out the carrier bareing I had it replaced and my car is very very peaceful...... :) Hope this helps.
