A switch problem , loose wiring connectors , control motor . Doing voltage drop testing on the electrical circuit is the best way to find the problem . Do you own a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter ? Know how to use one ? Know how to read an use a wiring diagram to locate testing points in the circuit ?

Looking at buying a 2006 Saturn Vue. Two issues so far are the ignition is frustrating to turn and the sunroof doesn't close properly. Are these common issues that are easily resolved?

Those are very common Saturn issues, along with short lived automatic transmissions and wiper motors. And no they are not easy nor cheap to fix. You have been warned.

It should be written on your compressor. But I do believe that the saturns switched pretty early. All the 93's I've seen so far have the 132a

My 93 Saturn SL2 intermittent stalling issues

I would look at the egr system. First pull the valve and clean it. If you have a vacuum tester this would be a good time to test the valve itself as well. When under load you should be able to see the diaphragm engage and hold and then release as you release the vacuum. If that doesn't work check and/or replace the egr solenoid. It's located on the driver's side of the valve cover and usually runs about 60$.

Yours is a common complaint and the above is the most common remedy. Outside of that you might want to check and clean the idle air control valve and the port where it's housed. If it is extremely dirty or something managed to get stuck in there that could affect you vehicle running at idle as well.

Another thing, even though you just changed the plugs, pull one back out and look at it. If is fouled with oil you might need a new valve cover gasket which if it's leaking badly enough will impede spark.

2004 SATURN ION Alarm goes off without being armed.

if you have a sunroof, the sunroof drains are clogged. either way you may have a bad door switch. you will have to pull each one out and look for corrosion at the plug. the fronts are most common, they are on either side of the dashboard.

Leaking sunroof in 98 Saturn SC2

The drain hoses get clogged behind the kick panels. Pull back the kick panel and reach in grab the hose and pull it out from the hole in the lower panel. Then I just cut off the end and watch the mud and water flow out then reinstall. There is also one in the rear wheel wells as well for the back drains.
There is no reason to remove the headliner unless its broke.
