SOURCE: '98 SL2 Saturn Traction Control

Traction control helps limit tire slip in acceleration on slippery surfaces. In the past you had to feather the gas pedal to prevent the drive wheels from spinning wildly on slippery pavement. Many of today's vehicles employ electronic controls to limit power delivery for the driver, eliminating wheel slip and helping the driver accelerate under control. Don't turn it off.

SOURCE: car won't start

Only a few basic things are necessary for the engine operation 1. Fuel (To be exact proper air/fuel ratio, normally it is about 14/1)
2. Spark (in appropriate moment)
3. Proper timing (the valves should open and close only in appropriate time)
4. Compression in the cylinders (Normal compression is 120 - 170 psi. The engine won't start if the compression is lower than 70 - 80 psi.)
Plus, to start the engine, the battery, the starter and the starter circuit should be OK.

If the engine won't start - there's no magic - one of these things is probably missing. Most often it's a spark- or fuel- related problem, but often it could be very simple things like dead battery.
If the car won't start, check simple things first:
Make sure you have a fuel in the tank, oil in the engine and the battery is OK, follow this link - How to check the battery
Now simply answer the questions, press "Yes" or "No" (If it's blue, follow the link).

- Do you hear the cranking sound when you're trying to start your car? (Yes No )
- When you switch the ignition ON before starting a car, does the "check engine" light come ON? (Yes No )
- When you switch the ignition ON, do you hear fuel pump buzzing sound from the gas tank area? (Yes No )
Before your engine died, did you experience any prior events such as:
- leaving the lights ON overnight (Yes No)
- driving through a deep puddle, or washing the engine compartment? (Yes No)
- trying a jump start? (Yes No)
- having only a little fuel in a tank? (Yes No)
- having had the engine repaired recently? (Yes No)
- the engine was overheated? (Yes No)
- extremely low oil pressure? (Yes No)
- unusual noises such as knocking, pinging, whistling? (Yes No)
- smoking from exhaust pipe? (Yes No)
- strong smell of a gas? (Yes No)

Now, let's try again. Turn off the radio, try to crank the engine one more time, and listen carefully. Is the cranking sounds different than it used to be? If it's different, does it looks like the engine being cranked by the starter too slowly? (Yes No)
Is the engine being cranked too fast? (Yes No)

Hope this may help;

Why does the traction control light on my 2002


This can be because of multiple things (wiring issues and multiple types of sensors etc.) However,I would suspect the wheel sensors or wiring for the following reason: Traction control uses the wheel sensors to determine where the wheel is, i.e. how fast it is rotating, in relation to the other wheels. If the wiring or the sensor for one or more of the wheels is damaged, the computer can receive information that makes it think that the tire is rotating faster or slower than the other wheels. At that point the traction control will kick in to selectively brake one or more of the other other wheels to cause them to rotate at the same speed. This would cause hesitation and could possibly cause additional wear on your transmission/transaxle and/or your transfer case (the box that provides power to the rear wheels since the Vue is primarily a front wheel drive vehicle as evidenced by the sideways facing engine)

Saturn vue 2004 intermittent abs and traction control comes on and after restarting shuts off?


Has this happened after you replaced the sensors for the abs. if so they have to be set at a gap close to the rotor sensor to read correctly. The other thing maybe if the new sensors area slightly different to the original ones the abs might be having trouble identifying them.
The last one maybe, could the new brake pads be causing flexing or pushing against something resulting in this intermittent problem.

On a 2002 Saturn vue does having the traction control off make a difference in tire wear ?


The only way it will make a difference in tire wear is if you are constantly spinning the tires and wearing them prematurely. If you are just turning traction control off but not spinning the tires any more than before you will not have any more wear.

How do you work the 4 wheel drive system in the snow do I need to switch anything? i have a 2008 Saturn Vue Xe


IT'S AUTOMATIC! If there is a "TCS" or "Traction Control" button/switch, then leave that engaged at virtually all times. That year of the Saturn Vue did not come with 4WD (4x4); it offered AWD (all-wheel drive) which automatically supplements its traction control system (which was standard on all trims of that model in that year). AWD tranfers up to 50% of the power to the rear wheels when it detects wheel slippage. One up side (or pro) to having AWD is that you can use it on pavement. 4WD is generally too aggressive for that.

Traction control system light stays on even when it is sitting still. Electronic Stability program light continues to stay on. The battery keeps going dead on the truck when I try to start it up.


Hi
check the switch for the traction control, it sounds like a bad earth or poor contact, also check the battery lead from the car battery to the car body. ensure it has a good contact to the car body.
