You may have a bad starter relay, or bad starter colenoid, best solution, have starter relay checked, if good, replace starter, does it click when you try to start?but won't? clicking indicates bad battery connections, bad starter colenoid, or simply bad starter. sometimes it's better to replace the whole starter, considering how much it costs to check all the above. suggest that you have battery checked for free at autozone or advance automotive for free. if battery checks good, replace starter. if you accept my solution and it works, let me know via fixya.com and thank you for choosing fixya.com

I have a 2004 Saturn vue...I replaced starter last year...but about a week ago I had to turn the key on and off multiple times and then finally starts...now it wont start...battery is good startergood


It's possibly the ignition switch or the battery cable going to the starter . Would need to do some testing to say for sure . Can you do electrical testing ? Have someone turn the key to the start position and someone check for B+ voltage at the S terminal on the starter solenoid . If B+ voltage is there , voltage drop test the starter circuit . How to voltage drop test starter motor circuit Starter Voltage Drop

I changed the battery in my Saturn Vue 2004 my car starts but won't stay started


If it dies after about 2 seconds, do a reset for the key. Turn it on for ten minutes, off for thirty seconds. There a relearn procedure also. It is three times this, start after the third time. Have a battery charger on it.

Just bought a 2002 saturn vue and just realized a day later that the odometer resets back to 89083 every time you shut the car off and the trip. back to 0.0 everytime.


Wow, that's VERY uncommon one. GM gauge clusters on newer vehicles have battery backups that retatin the data indefinately. When ordering a replacement cluster from GM you have to provide them with the milage, so the nw one can be programmed to match what is also stored in your PCM.

I would say either the backup circuit in the cluster failed, or someone figured out how to disable it so they wouldn't run up any milage.

A GM dealer should be able to pull up the vehicle's actual milage from the Computer and sell you a replacement cluster.

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.

1. Try putting the gear shift in neutral and then attempt to start. If your VUE starts, replace the neutral safety switch.

2. Turn on the headlights and attempt to start while someone is watching for the lights to dim. If the lights dim while trying to start, remove starter and have it tested.

3. Take proof of ownership to the dealer and have them cut a new key. There is a chip inside the key, that when it's inoperative, will let you turn the key to the start position, but vehicle will not start.
