Sound like a deeper problem with the ECU. Your car cant start when the immobilizerlight is on because the key is not recoinized by the ECU. You will need to have you ECU immobilizer reprogrammed. It is probably possible to do this yourself with tools of ebay, but you will only save youself a 50 bucks or so. Take it to a workshop or a car locksmith. It will cost you about 100-200 bucks, but will save you a lot of work.

If you have a sparekey try starting the car with that. Try disconnecting the battery and leave it of overnight to reset the ECU.

My 2006 Saturn Vue 2.2 liter will not start battery fully charged all the lights come on on the panel but just will not turn over

It won't start or won't turn over. If it turns over and not start. Is the security light staying on? Check engine light staying on? If it won't turn over, check the starter/crank fuse.

Clicks but won t turn over

Most likely a bad or low battery or bad connection or bad solenoid or starter or combination of any of them. Those lights will mostly stay on till the engine cranks before going off.

Engine light on during ignition

Any car produce after 1996 can be scan with an OBDII reader.

Check the date code on the battery to rule out old battery.
All battery has a service life of 48 or more month.

Also check the belt tension. When the 2 arrow / dot meet the it is worn.

A worn tensioner will not create enough frication to the alternator pulley.

Well, you probably broke it. When you see the oil light on, it's trying to tell you something. Something like "get me checked out and repaired or you'll kill me". The lights are not for your entertainment, they're for your education.

I had a wire connector on the front of the engine that had so much tension, the wires broke. I didn't notice until a wet day when the car wouldn't start (and the Check Engine light was on).
