Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a 2005 Saturn Vue which battery warning light sometimes come on randomly and then goes for several weeks now. As it came on more frequently I thought the battery was dying so I replaced it two days ago. The light still randomly comes on as I start the ignition. What should I do to reset the indicator or is this another problem altogether?

If the battery light comes on while your are driving than the alternator is not charging. The battery light comes on to tell you there is a problem with the charging system not the battery. It is normal for the light to come on when you turn the key to the run position and then it should go out shortly after the engine starts. When the light is on check the voltage at the battery if you have less than 13 volts the alternator is not charging.

SOURCE: Satrun Vue 2005 ABS activates for no reason

It may just new brakes, pull the ABS fuse and see if the problem still exists, if it does then it's not a ABS problem

make sure to check your fuses and ground wires first. when you are set on which part is bad do a quick check of everything else before you jump into it.

SOURCE: Cannot locate battery terminals on 2005 Saturn Vue re: jump

they don't want you too ... there is a terminal usually near one of the strut towers with a red cap on it and you hook up the ground to any where else metal is showing.

My instrument panel is doing the exact same thing. It started today. I almost think it may be a loose cable to the computer that drives the lights. Did you ever resolve your issue?

2005 Saturn Vue, no light in odometer, is odometer working?All other lights working on dash.


Hi:
the dash has seven or eight small bulbs illuminating the entire area, and approx 3 of them are for the speedometer/odometer area.

It seems odd that those are the first to go, but most likely the problem.
It often requires removal of the instrument cluster to swap bulbs. not too bad, but sometimes tricky.
