The u codes, both are and no v code, indicate communication link problems, most likely between the main computer and the body control module. A Saturn tech claims the bcm is a very common failure on saturns. You need to get it checked out, pretty sure you will need a new bcm.

U1120 is Lost Wheel Distance Message. Not sure what you could have done while doing an oil change but one (1) of three possible items are the issue. CAN C BUS CIRCUIT OPEN Or SHORTED or ANTI-LOCK BRAKE MODULE or PCM. One of the three has an issue.

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.

SOURCE: 2001 Pontiac Grand Am won't crank and I have replaced everything

I am going to go with the assumption that when you say it won't crank you mean it turns over but won't start. If it is a 3100 or 3400 it could be the coil pac modual that sits under the coil pack. Most Autozones and Advance stores have a tester for them so you won't have to repalce something that expensive. If it is a 2.4 you may need the tower that houses the coil packs or even the coil pac modual that sits under the cover on top of the motor. Before you do anything else, spay some ether down the intake while turning over. If it thry to run, then you may have a fuel pump problem. Better than that if you have access to a fuel pressure gauge, check the pressure while you are turning the engine over. Compare it to the recomended presure in section four of a hayes manual.

Aftermarket fuel pump failure? Try "thepartsladi" store on eBay for low price GM OEM parts. Could also be wiring harness to fuel pump.

How do i reset the 'service engine soon' light in my 1993 saturn sl1?

Hello: You Can try disconnecting the battery for 20 seconds but if you haven't corrected the problem the light will come back on. You need to go to auto zone or advance auto and find out what code you have so you can repair it. They can also clear the code.

You can either take it to Advance Auto - Auto Zone or Pep Boys as these 3 do systems checks.

Try taking down the VIN# - call a dealer and ask about recalls or Service Bulletins.

Service light comes on in about 30 seconds in a saturn sl2

Go to it's a great site with a WEALTH of info on saturn specific problem solving.

In the mean time have auto zone or other parts place read the codes for the service light,

MOST problems are caused by a bad water temp sensor on the right side of the engine down low ( looking at it from the front of the car ) it's called the ECTS sensor, get a BRASS one from auto zone for $8.00 it will solve a lot of problems that there may not be a code for.

What is the code? Auto Zone uses cheap scanners, but the code is what you need. For example if you get a P1651 OBDII code the sensor that controls the fan relay could be running the cooling fans at night when the car is turned off and running down your battery. For a few bucks your local GM dealer can scan it for you, and you should have the answer. If you just get the code's Write them down, If you don't have a service manual, search the net for OBDII with the code# and that should narrow the problem down to circuit that is causing the problem. Hope this help.
