Question about 2003 Saturn VUE

The VUE wouldn't start so we got a jump. The engine died. We got another jump and made it to Discount Auto to have them check the battery. They replaced it and it started right up. Then it died. everytime we started it, it would die unless we had our foot on the gas. Anytime in idle, the engine would die. They checked alternator, first said it was bad and then said it was good. No check engine light.

Most likely you have a voltage regulator on the alternator going bad. That is why one test was bad then one test was good. The voltage regulator is most likely integrated into the alternator. Replace the Alternator and that should resolve the problems.

Saturn vue will start but will only stay runnuing about twenty minutes then stalls wont start


Does the car loose power before stalling or does it simply die without warning? If it loses power first, you're likely looking at a fuel pump or fuel system problem. If it just dies, you probably have an ignition problem. Does the check engine light come on before it dies?

2003 Saturn Vue with a identity anti theft system. Replaced my battery a few months ago. Couple weeks ago noticed a little difficulty starting up. Last week wouldn't start just clicking noise. Jumped...


Anti-theft system has nothing to do with it . Battery cables , maybe , Park neutral safety switch possibly ! With anti-theft system problem you wouldn't a click or anything , that is if the anti-theft disables fuel or the starter . Plus the SECURITY light would be on if it were a anti-theft system problem . Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop that knows how to do starter circuit testing >
Starter Voltage Drop
How to voltage drop test starter motor circuit

And what's this identity anti theft system ? No such thing ! The vehicle has a content theft an vehicle theft deterrent system !
This system disables fuel not cranking of the engine. The VCM/PCM will not disable the fuel due to any BCM message for the remainder of the ignition cycle.
If the VCM/PCM does not receive the same password from the BCM as the last learned one, the vehicle will start and then stalls due to the Fuel Lockout.

I wouldn't,, recommended maintenance is in place for a reason,, and this repair is for a good reason, if the timing belt ( or chain) goes out,, damage can happen to the valves, and pushrods which mean added costs , leaving you stuck where ever it happens to go out,

How do i jump start another car with a saturn vue?


Most newer automobiles like your Vue cannot jump start another car because of the circuit protection built into the SUV.
You must disconnect your battery in order to jump start another car with the battery you have otherwise it will to allow you to jump start anything.
This could lead to your own Vue having a drained battery..
Most would recommend a battery eliminator that is available at most auto stores for this type of situation.

'03' Vue has trouble starting


Sounds like the fuel pump may be going out. By the way the power steering is electric in Saturn, so it does not require the engine to be running.
