Question about 2006 Saturn Vue

1 Answer

Intermittent battery light

I have a 2006 Vue. I keep getting an intermittent battery light that comes on for several minutes then goes out. Sometimes it will come on right away and stay on for a while, but sometimes it will come on after a few minutes and go out later. I have the car in the Philippines where it's tropical (hot) and had to replace the battery at 30,000 because it was expanding. Also my radio went dead and they are sending me another one. Even after I replaced the battery, the light still comes on almost every trip but usually goes out after 5 or 10 minutes. One other thing. If it stays on after starting the car, I can shut it off and restart and the light won't come on (untill later, maybe). Larry P

Why do I have an intermittent problem with ABS and power steering lights?


Bad or loose intermittent wire connections to and from sensors. Some unauthorised mechanic has been working on the car? Take it back and talk to the service manager, or the shop owner.

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.

Hello: You could have a intermittent ignition lock cylinder. I would get the codes read Auto Zone, Advance Auto or O'Rielly can do that and they may not charge you.
