At autozone service center is free to get car scanned.------------- But first try reset.------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

    If its working with emergency brake, but dies when brake pedal is depressed then its a possibility that there is a short in brake switch.r the short in grounds.The battery grounds and brake switch connections are to be checked.

Most likely problem is the neutral safety switch coming apart. There may be additional problems. Get a scan of the computer and post the trouble codes.

I have a 2003 Vue...and the ABS light will not turn off...is it safe to drive until I can get it fixed?


If ABS light is on,you still have base brakes,just like an older vehicle with no ABS.Not a problem,as a matter of fact I always disable the ABS on my vehicles because I don't like it.

My 2003 saturn vue service ebgine light stays


The CEL (Check Engine Light) will not go out until you hook up a OBD II scanner to your vehicle and erase the code. If it comes back again after you erase it than either the original problem still exists or you have a new problem. You can go to your local AutoZone store and they can hook up a scanner and erase your code for free.

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.

'03' Vue has trouble starting


Sounds like the fuel pump may be going out. By the way the power steering is electric in Saturn, so it does not require the engine to be running.
