2005 Saturn Vue - Starting Problems

My 2005 Saturn Vue does not start. The car turns on when I place the key in the ignition, but doesn't start when I turn the key. It doesn't even choke.
The battery appears to be fine, so I think it the starter which is bad.

    my car somtimes will not turn on. when the key is turned, the starter will click once and then do nothing. the battery checked out fine, starter was pulled and tested fine. the ignition cylinder has been having slight problems turning, but I don't think that affects anything. Run out of ideas if anyone wants to pitch some.

Make sure to check your fuses and ground wires first. when you are set on which part is bad do a quick check of everything else before you jump into it.

FOB not working on my saturn vue and can't get key in ignition or turn ignition.


That will usually happen when your gear shift is not fully in park. Start by checking that to make sure.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2005 saturn vue...the ignition key is getting harder and harder to get to turn...even parked on even ground..usually have to play with the steering wheel to make it work...but its getting worse


Me too. I found the keychain I had was quite heavy and heard that could be a problem. Also when I turn the key now I lift the key upwards and have had no trouble lately. Hope that works for you too.

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.

I have a 2003 saturn vue and my key always gets stuck in the ignition. Now I can't even turn the key at all, I really don't know if I have to change the whole ignition or just the part where the key goes...


It needs a new lock assembly. Or you can do as all the car thieves do and buy a slide hammer and pull your lock out and start it with a screwdriver

When I try to start my 2003 saturn vue the key is hard to turn unless I push brake very hard and turn the steering wheel. What's the problem?


My 2004 Saturn Vue had the same problem. I thought the ignition had to be changed and I drove the Vue a long time with the key hard to turn and pushing it in before turning it. I mentioned it to a Saturn Dealer mechanic while having warranty work done. He told me a new key had to be made using the key code (located on the inside panel on the driver door). They made it and it totally fixed the problem. I think any GM dealer can do that for you.

How do i reset the oil light on a 03 saturn vue? i did the turn the key and press the gas peddle 3 times and that didn't work.


The procedure you used is for the 2006 > Vue, and will not work on your 2003. For the 2002-2005 Saturn Vue V4 or V6 - Under the hood you will see a black fuse box behind the battery. Open it up and you will see a red button, it is small and looks like a fuse but on the top it will say Oil-Res. Turn on the ignition & press and hold that button for about 10 seconds. You may want to have a friend sit in the driver's seat and watch for the indicator to start flashing, which indicates you've activated the reset. Turn off the ignition and that will reset the Oil light.

Sometimes the steering wheel will not turn and once the key is placed in the ignition it will not turn


The wheel is binding on the ignition interlock.
Turn the wheel either clockwise or counter-clockwise as you turn the ignition key.

2002 Saturn Vue Ignition Cylinder lock problem


The keys on this vehicle have a problem with wearing down to the point where it's a pain to get them to work in the ignition cylinder. Examine your keys for wear and that may have been your problem since day one.
I have a 2004 Vue and I have the only key I got with it (used car) worn down to the point where it will no longer work in the back door and is a pain to use in the ignition cylinder. It also falls right out of the ignition cylinder when the car is running. I have a copy of the key that was made when I got the car which works just fine and doesn't fall out, and looking at the two side by side, you can see that Saturn's key has worn down substantially since I got it two years ago.
