SOURCE: 2004 Saturn Vue shifting problem
You should probably check the shifter cable. I had the same thing happen and then I couldn't shift into 2nd, 4th, and reverse gears. Then the cable snapped and I had to replace it. Be careful "man-handling" the shifter. If you break the shift linkage at the base of the shifter it's about $45 from the dealership. It's cheap plastic and doesn't take much to break. If you really want to know if it's the shift cable and not the gearbox crank the engine, have someone hold the clutch, disconnect the shift cables from the box, and manually shift the gears. If they move smooth, it's probably your cable which would mean there's a kink in it somewhere. You can't fix that. Depending on the VIN you're looking at anywhere from $189 (what mine cost with tax) to a little over $200 (from the dealership brand new). Talk to the parts desk at a Saturn dealership and they can tell you which one you need. Hope this helps

Sounds like the electronic selector module, it should have a emergency release on the top or side, it a little hole that a pen will fit in, this will allow the shift to move in to gear, see how you get on. This will get the car in to R & D, but it may be in, get U home mode then it will need changing.

you may want to check to see if their is to much fluid in it,its along shoot but it does happen,see to much causes foaming of the fluid and it cant do its job.have u noted all engine conditions and any other condition when it acts up?good luck.

that is what they consider safe mode for those transmissions, they are a very smart electronic transmission it does that so you dont ruin the trans.
It has detected a problem and you must take it to a tech and have the codes pulled, could be as simple as a sensor or solenoid pack
