I replaced a air temp sensor on my saturn vue 2005 6cylinder now it cranks but wont start what went wrong?

Exacty, what did you do to replace it. The only thing I can think of , is you disconnected the battery. Every manual says to do this for anything you do to a car. Turn the ignition on. Look at the security light. It should go off after 3 seconds. No. Do a reset. Turn it on for ten minutes, off for thirty seconds. Try to start. No start, do a relearn, Three times this and try to start after the third time. Have a battery charger on it.

I have the original ac delco #3049 battery in my saturn Ion, which needs to be replaced. I can't seem to find where I would loosen any clamps to take it off the termainals. I tried to tug a little on...

I don't know what people are thinking here...!!!
Anyway, you will notice that these black and red caps have little straps on them. This should give you the hint that they can come off. Don't be afraid to tug on these suckers until they come off. Then using a 10mm socket, remove the battery bolts, negative first. Then remove the battery strap. This battery is vented, so remove the tubing carefully so as not to damage them and get the proper AC/Delco replacement. Not cheap! Oh and remember to drive your car for about 30 minutes normal driving to reset the ECM. Also, if you have a password on your stereo, remember it, or disable this feature before you start, or you will have a useless piece of scrap for a radio!

Will replacing the car battery clear the computer chip?

No, it will not clear the computer. You can safely replace you battery and not worry about the computer chip being cleared. This will no more erase the memory from the computer in your car than unplugging a computer will erase the hard drive on a PC. The ECU memory is programmed in and will not be erased. It may erase the radio code & presets and require you to insert it again but that is all.

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.
