Saturn vue charging problems

My wife has a 09 saturn vue 3.5 v6 awd the voltage reading has always been up and don varying from 12.5v-14.7. the batter died last week and the dealer replaced it no charge but i have been reading up on it and it should be 14.5v above idle but normally when driving it is 13.6v. does this mean the alternator is bad and we should take it back to the dealer or is it normal? sometimes while driving the voltage will stay at 12.5v and eventualy jump up to 13.6 and maybe up to 14.6 but usualy stays around 13.6 thanks forall your help

My Yukon Denali does the same thing and my battery is fine. It scared me watching the gauge move like that. I would drive it for 6 months and see what happens..

2003 Saturn vue awd 3.0 testing showed alternator putting out about 1/2- we replaced the alternator & the serpentine belt,- red wire?the new alternator in did not solve the problem-battery is new-


How do you know it's only putting out about 1/2 ? an 1/2 what ? Amps or volts ? Did you hook up a volt meter to the battery posts ? red to red an black lead to negative post of the battery ? Does it show 13.1 to 14. 1 volts with the engine running , if so it's charging . The only thing that would cause the alternator not to put out full charge amps would be a bad diode inside the alternator or a power or ground issue. You need to check power an grounds doing a voltage drop test . Voltage Drop Testing the Charging System

2002 Saturn Vue V6 AWD sounds like an F1 car when i drive it. Very loud constant noise. Checked trans fluid and it was fine.


I have a 2002 saturn vue. Same thing..sounded like a jet engine ...loud humming as I accelerated . It got increasingly worse. It turned out to be the front wheel bearings. Replace them, now the noise is half as loud...have to do the rears also! 93,000 miles on it. Also, don't forget to replace the timing belt. It it goes too long and breaks, it will trash the engine...
