Leave the key on ACC and remove the 2 Amp Ignition Fuse from the instrument panel fusebox. Just having the key on ACC will prevent miles from being added up, but you may drain the battery if the fuse is not removed. Don't forget to put it in neutral and take the brake off!

If your Vue has a six-speed automatic you must not exceed 65 MPH when towing with the front wheels on the ground. Remember, you're spinning parts of the transmission while there is no fluid circulating to lubricate and cool it.

    The key in ACC without pulling the ignition fuse will still accumulate miles.

SOURCE: can 2008 saturn astra be dinghy towed(4 wheels down)behind an RV?

You can do it if you really wanted to. You'll need to make sure the steering wheel is secured and that the wheels are perfectly straight or you will wreck the front tires. You will be adding unneeded mileage onto the the car by having the front wheels turning. would be better and less costly overall to get trailer that you can put the front end up on.

My miles gauge stop working in my 03 Saturn vue


So does the Trip odometer work? Does the odometer work? If you answer is "sort of", does the odometer return to the same mileage every time your 2003 Saturn VUE sits overnight? The VUE has an all electronic odometer sensor that is in the transmission, so you may need to replace that. I also agree with JDCamped that those wires may need replaced, but the mice? I would think burned/shorted in a wiring harnes is far more common and you should see a "Check Engine" light. The cluster just shows the data from the sensors, if they are blank, then that is the cluster.

The odometer quit working on my 2003 Saturn Vue 4 cylinder, manual transmission, 12,000 miles. Every once in awhile it will count a few miles. The speedometer works correctly. How does the odometer work,...


not really able to trouble shoot this .. uhh you may need a new instrument panel.. this is something that a dealer will have to look at as it is illegal to mess with yourself.. But if it were me.. i would hook up an aftermarket odometer.. something you can take out.. and your engine will never gain any miles :) :) odometer would be just so you know the actual mileage.. ever go to sell it.. LOW MILES :)

please email me at cardenderek@yahoo.com if you have any more questions. and please accept solution so i can get credit for it :) thank you

How to preform a tune-up on my 2009 Saturn Vue


It has a maintenance recomendation from the manufacturer for replacement of the spark-plugs at 100,000 miles. You don't list mileage or V6 or L4 cylinder. Make sure engine is cold because the cylinder heads are aluminum and can be damaged if plugs are removed hot or overtightened upon reassembly. Remove spark-plug wires and replace spark-plugs. Sometimes the wires break when you remove them and will require replacement. If you coat the inside of the wires where they connect with the plugs with dielectric grease it will help prevent the wires from breaking upon future disassembly.
