First of all the voltage of the battery needs to be checked. If the battery is too old then it has to be replaced. But if the battery is replaced and it’s new then the voltage of the battery needs to be checked. If the voltage is low then the battery needs to be charged. But if the voltage is proper but still there is problem then, Charge the battery then drive the car for few hours then r-check the voltage of the battery after few hours. If the voltage of the battery gets low then it’s the fault of alternator. The voltage of alternator needs to be checked. When the car is running at that time the battery is charged by the alternator. But if the car battery is loosing its charge after driving for few hours that means the alternator is not charging the battery when it’s running. So get the alternator checked, if the alternator is checked ok then check the wire connection between alternator and the car battery. If the connections of battery as well as alternator checked out ok then get the ignition switch and ignition lock cylinder checked. In some cases the car actually does not get off when you turn the ignition switch towards off. And due to this the car battery looses its power even when the car is turned off. So the ignitions switch and ignition lock cylinder needs to be checked. The exact volt at ignition system is 12 volt. Also the voltage of battery is 12 volts. If it’s low or not proper then it has to be charged.
If all the above possibilities mentioned above checked out OK/perfect then it’s a electrical issue and the wiring's in the car needs to be checked. The car gets power from the battery to get started. so the wires from battery needs to be checked one by one.

Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

2005 Saturn vue 3.5 6 cylinders will not start. dashboard lights off except check engine light and power window lights. The car recently will not start while at a gas station. I called a tow truck and...


Sounds like you have someting pulling down the battery. If the battery is very old, take it to one of the auto parts store, like advance auto. They will check the battery and tell you if it is good or not. I had a battery in a truck ione time that started every day, but if it set 2 days it would not start it had a bad cell in it. Good luck.

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.

The VUE wouldn't start so we got a jump. The


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.

Have a 2002 ion that sometimes wont start but if left for 10 mins will start up.


I have 2003 Saturn Ion. I had this problem over and over 2006 - 2008. IT IS THE IGNITION SWITCH. IT IS DEFECTIVE IN ALL ION'S.The replacement may be defective also, not sure. Mine was driving fine, went ino store for 1 hr came out stone cold dead, would not start and key **** in. Had to have towed to Saturn. They said it was battery and replaced battery.I said this did not make sense. 6 yr battery only 3 yr old , never weak start, never run down, in summer? It happened again 2 mo later. They tried to say battery , I said no. They checked battery. It was fine. Could not find problem. They did total electrical check. It happened again 1 mo later. drove into feed store. Went in came out it happened again. I got jump from someone 30 min later and started right up. 2 wks later same, I got jump 20 min later started. 1 mo late same. Sometimes it would just start up. Took to another Saturn place. They said Ignition switch, saturn was having big problem with this on Ions. Got changed and no problems for 1 yr. I was talking to repesentative at Saturn Headquarters. I told the problem. They said the ignition switch has an electrical component, or it is hooked to electrical component. THEY SAID IF I HAD JUST SAT THERE 20 MIN WITH KEY OFF, THE COMPUTER CHIP FOR IT WOULD HAVE RESET ITSELF WHEN IT COOLED DOWN AND I COULD HAVE STARTED IT EACH TIME. IT WAS BEST TO GET REPLACED AND NOT WORRY, BUT THIS WILL HELP YOU IN A STRESSFUL PINCH, UNTIL YOU CAN GET THE IGNITION SWITCH REPLACED. NOTE: Go to Auto Zone , O 'Reilleys, Pep Boys etc, get a repair manuel , CHILTON $ 23- $ 25 , for your year , make, model car. CHILTON IS MUCH BETTER THAN HAYES MANUEL. It is wonderful and many things you can do yourself.

I have a 2003 saturn vue 6 cylinder. my service engine soon light came on and my friend had a diagnostic tool and checked my computer and this code showed up, my friend reset it. it came back on after 12...


From the looks of it this is a very common problem with the 2002-2003 saturn vue. There was a Technical Service Bulletin from saturn about the problem, which means it happens alot but not quite enough to warrant a recall.

You need to replace your thermostat and it is a pain to do, the dealership will charge you about 2 hours flat rate to put it in.

Its not a huge deal to get it replaced right away, but the computer depends on the vehicle being a certain temperature and if it isn't then your performance/emissions will suffer.
