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?

thats AWD, is your vehicle normally front wheel drive, theres no easy way for the transfer case to jump into AWD, mine does it to although mines a Expedition an its the front that kicks in.....The only thing you can do is keep a eye on fluid inside axle....
i own a 2003 vue. it happened to me and finally the tranny went. it was a sealed transmission(cvt)do you have a dipstick to check your transmission fluid.if you dont, get saturn to look at it.a new one is 6000.00.Just hope you have a warranty.
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!
