Question about 2007 Saturn VUE FWD 4

1 Answer

2007 Saturn Vue AWD starts but won't shift to drive/reverse

I live in Fairbanks, AK. It has been -40 for the past 2 weeks, the vehicle has not had any problems. Today, it was -20. I had auto started it earlier, got in and it wouldn't let me shift into reverse. So I restarted the vehicle, it started fine, but then the following lights appeared: Brake system warning light, ABS Warning light, Check Engine light, Service Engine Soon, & Reduced Engine Power light. The gauges won't move - gas, speed, etc. I remove the key from ignition and the parking lights won't turn off. Its still under warranty and I am waiting towing. Due to the severe weather, towing and mechanics are backed up. Any idea what it can be?

    Thank you for the suggestion. I got it back from the shop and the mechanics said that the battery was operating at an extremely low voltage which did not allow any of the electrical functions to work. They admitted that they really didn't know what happen but since the battery was dead by the time they picked it up, they charged the battery at a slow pace and it fixed the problem. I think I agree with you. Thanks again for the help.

Disconnect the battery and reconnect.
This should clear the computer memory.
This may cure the problem.
Suspect extreme cold primary cause in transmission?
Good Luck !

2002 Saturn Lseries trouble putting into gear at starup.

It has to be shift lock solenoid (actuator). When this solenoid goes out it makes it so you can't put the vehicle into gear. Replace this and your vehicle will go back to normal. Good luck and let me know how it turns out. Thanks for using FixYa!
