SOURCE: 2002 Saturn Vue Ignition Cylinder lock problem

The keys on this vehicle have a problem with wearing down to the point where it's a pain to get them to work in the ignition cylinder. Examine your keys for wear and that may have been your problem since day one.
I have a 2004 Vue and I have the only key I got with it (used car) worn down to the point where it will no longer work in the back door and is a pain to use in the ignition cylinder. It also falls right out of the ignition cylinder when the car is running. I have a copy of the key that was made when I got the car which works just fine and doesn't fall out, and looking at the two side by side, you can see that Saturn's key has worn down substantially since I got it two years ago.

Since you already drilled out the lock cylinder why not just get the lock cylinder to turn and then pull it out and just replace the cylinder?

Were is the ignition switch on a 2003 saturn ion


The Ignition starter switch is located directly to the rear of the ignition lock cylinder and it is directly actuated by the lock cylinder. You must remove the outer covers of the column to replace it. Below is a picture of the switch. Use the OEM part as it is far better than aftermarket parts and about the same price.

Passlock security


The 2000 saturn runs the passlock system. Unlike VATS its predecesser, this system is much harder to bypass. The old "resister" trick that many people still do, does not apply for this system. So lets start at the basics. The security light flashing indicates 1 of 3 things. The problem in your passlock is either in the KEY, IGNITION LOCK CYLINDER, or WIRING before the Theft Deterrent Module (computer). This means you could replace the key or the ignition (whichever is to blame) and you might be ok. You would have to reprogram the key to the ignition. The other option is to bypass it. Unfortunately that costs money also, but honestly no more than a new transponder key and far less than a Lock Cylinder. Just trying to give you all the options. Here is a link that explains the SECURITY problem rather well and gives some good tricks and options for fixing this yourself permanently

2002 Saturn L200. Dealer told me I needed to replace the PCM and the passlock module. $800.00. Is there a way to bypass the passlock B.S. Please help car is not reliable. Have children.


no the power control module runs the whole car and the pass lock you maybe can do without it controls the security systems but the pcm is the brain of the car

Have a 2001 saturn sl that will not start in the late afternoon during the hottest part of the day. When I try the anti theft light blinks and the car will not start. Was able to override that for about...


you may have a failed ignition lock cylinder, the only for sure way to know is to take the car to a gm dealer and have them diag the car. (read the code) You can not bypass the theft system it controls fuel and ignition control module. If you have an independent repair shop with a scanner that can read a saturn control module it might be cheaper. The parts you will need tor replace isa lock cylinder new key and have the new lock cylinder coded

Saturn L-100 and the key will not turn in ignition


THE PINS IN THE LOCK CYLINDER ARE STICKING, BUY SOME GRAPHITE POWDER LOCK CYLINDER LUBE FROM ANY LOCK SHOP OR HARDWARE STORE, SPRAY IT INTO THE CYLINDER AND WORK THE KEY IN AND OUT OF THE CYLINDER, IF THIS DOESN'T DO IT U WILL NEED TO REPLACE THE IGNITION KEY LOCK CYLINDER.
