Most likely it was just the loose , dirty cables. It is very crucial for the elec needs of a vehical to have perfect connections . Ign housing has a small magnetic type bar on the housing that the ecu needs to recognise to allow the car to start, and changingh this may cause the theft light to activate. Its called P.A.T.S or , passive anti theft secuity and

My 2003 Saturn Vue cuts off during acceleration


I am having the same problem with my Saturn Vue 2006. I have been told by a mechanic that the same engine in my vue is used in a Saab vehicle and the Saab vehicle has been recalled for this same problem.
I am very concerned about the safety of driving Saturns with this problem. I have found blog after blog with people reporting the exact same issue in their Saturns.
We need to unite and get GMC to recall these vehicles before someone is killed. Please share this with anyone who has something to add.
Thank you!

I have a 2003 saturn vue 4 cyl. My security light has started to come on for only a few seconds when I put the car in gear and now is beginning to come on for a few seconds when I put it in park and goes...


When the security light comes on, it means that the Antitheft system is most likely begining to fail. It will start very intermittently amd progressively get worse until it either shuts down the car, or your car will refuse to start when that light is on. This link explains

Security light blinks when key is turned to on and will not start, also is the key supposed to be coded? 2003 saturn vue 2.2


Ok to learn the key you have to do what is call 10 minute learn , turn the key to start in attempt to start the car without turning the key off after you do this leave the key on for 10 minute until light goes out, After the security light goes out turn key off for a second or two and then try to start. If you have a new key you have to do a 30 minute learn you have to do the same thing as you did for the 10 minute learn but 3 time try and start without turning key off wait 10 minutes until security goes out then try and start again and leave key on, after you do this 3 time (30 minutes) the 3rd time is where you turn the key of for a second or two before starting.

1. Try putting the gear shift in neutral and then attempt to start. If your VUE starts, replace the neutral safety switch.

2. Turn on the headlights and attempt to start while someone is watching for the lights to dim. If the lights dim while trying to start, remove starter and have it tested.

3. Take proof of ownership to the dealer and have them cut a new key. There is a chip inside the key, that when it's inoperative, will let you turn the key to the start position, but vehicle will not start.
