Saturn vue sunroof

The sunroof opens and closes really slowly. also when the breaks are applied it totally stops at makes a clicking noise. then when the headlights are on and the breaks are applied the left tail light dims out and when the left blinker is turned on it flashes really fast like a bulb is out.

Check for bad ground cables first..if green or bulging cables or use an ohm meter to check resistance from battery ground to ground on block or frame and if it does not read 0.00 through 0.004 then rplace bad cable. you sound like you have more problems but start with that..

Sounds like a insufficient ground situation. Start out by cleaning your battery connections. You probably have a ground wire that is responsible for several circuits, not connected securely to the chassis. This could be under the dash. You may have to consult your wiring diagram on your vehicle.

SOURCE: tail lights and brake lights not working with headlights on

We had the same problem with ours, that is a Saturn recall items. Check with your Saturn dealer to see if it is still in effect. It use to make our headlight switch get hot. I think it was a poor ground in the taillight housing, I use to wiggle the bulb plug-ins and that helped for a while, but after the recall was fixed it never did it again.

You need to check your left side turn/park lamp bulbs for correct part # & installation.If that checks out you deffinetely have a ground problem.When you have other lights blinking with you turn signals you have either a bulb incorrect or a bad/poor ground.If bulbs check out check your forward lamp harness ground.Hope this helps

My 2005 saturn vue makes a loud noise,shakes,wont go very fast and shuts off


The only thing that can make a loud noise shakes and go very fast, Is a open TAC (Throttle actuator motor) being stuck open. This applies to a 4 cylinder and 6 cylinder.A disconnected MAF (mass air flow) if this duct came out same situation, Just inspect the duct make sure its on.

I have a 2002 Saturn Vue. The Sunroof won't open or close. It is partially open and rain is due this evening. When I push the switch forward or back, I can hear the motor click, but the sun roof will...


Sorry no reset, some of these came with a plug near the front that can be removed and a socket inserted and you could close roof by turning, but if you hear the motor click then the motor may be bad or the track broke, most of the time a little arm breaks on the track that pulls and pushes glass using a threaded rod, see if you can push while hitting the button to see if it moves,take a good look and seeif you can see anything moving or turning on the track,

2005 Chevy Equinox sunroof problems


Some customers may comment that the sunroof will no longer respond to the control switch while in a vented, partially opened, or fully opened position.
Cause A software issue with the sunroof control module may cause the sunroof control module to incorrectly indicate a "closed" position, which may result in no power to the sunroof motor.
Correction Verify the customer concern. If a condition is present, replace the sunroof control module with a new sunroof control module, P/N 15847643. Refer to the Service Procedure in this bulletin.
Service Procedure
  1. Verify the customer concern by opening and closing the sunroof. • If the sunroof will not open , check the power windows. - If the power windows are also inoperative, check the fuse. If the fuse has opened, refer to Corporate Bulletin Number 05-08-64-004 to install 30A circuit breaker. - If the power windows are fully functional, refer to "Power Sunroof Inoperative" diagnostics (SI Document ID# 1392967) in the Body section of the 2005 Chevrolet Equinox or Saturn VUE Service Manual. • If the sunroof will open (or is already open), but will not close , proceed to Step 2.
  2. Replace the sunroof control module. Refer to "Sunroof Control Module Replacement" procedure in the Body section of the 2005 Chevrolet Equinox Service Manual (SI Document ID# 1196049) or Saturn VUE Service Manual (SI Document ID# 1710479).
  3. Open and close the sunroof in order to confirm that the customer concern has been resolved.
