    Having the exact same issue, just started out of the blue, what is the resolution?
    XM and CD player and speakers are working fine, display for CD/XM/Radio is fine, but AM/FM is nothing, no static, no sound at all. If you try to scan it just goes up one then back, it wont scan stations (ie if on AM 720 scan forward will go to 730, then scan forward a 2nd time goes back to 720)

Ok here is a crazy thing. Same thing happened to me, I took the radio out to see if I could fix this. All capacitors were fine and could not find any issues with radio on bench-not plugged in. Put it back in the vue, turned it on and voila it is working now better than new. 2 rThings could have happened. 1) electrical surge that spiked and radio is off to protect itself. Unplugging resets and everything works again. 2) attached cable getting loose from vibrations. The reason I say that is because I have the factory subwoofer and I thought it had burned out. On unplugging and rep lugging the radio, the subwoofer is on and blasting away. Frankly I think it a combo of both above because the RDS is now functioning again as we'll. give it a shot. What do you have to loose? I see you post was in 2009. This may be amute point for you but for others out there, hope it works.

Plz help. 2004 saturn vue. one night the radio is working just fine the next morning I got in the car the radio comes on but there is no sound coming out of the speakers I've checked all the fuses and...

With the radio on, make sure there is voltage at the speaker wire positive and negative leads. If there is no voltage, the output from your receiver might have gone out.

How do I set the time in a 2006 Saturn Vue clock with a CD player. Pressing the small button and turning the volume knob, according to the manual doesn't work for me. Thanks..Ken

This will work if you turn the radio on first. The manual seems to have left that part out. I wrote it into my manual for the next time the time changes.

Saturn vue 2004 repalced battery

If it is like most Saturns if you had the radio or any eletrical equipment on when you changed the battery it blows the fuse. It will also blow the fuse to your turn signals or wipers if they are on.

2004 saturn vue Replaced battery. Radio and Cd no longer work.

Turn off the car and remove the negative battery cable off. let sit a few minutes then reconnect the cable. try it several times. The removal of the battery causes the computer to deprogram itself. what you will be doing is re-programming the computer module.
