Cause of the problem:
During a non-related visit to the Saturn dealer, ie for an oil change, the Saturn dealer loosened the center of three bolts that electrically connect the main battery plus cable to the main fuse box, driver side, under hood, near windshield.
Affect of loose electrical plus cable
A loose cable, probably on the way home from the oil change, causes electrical surges that destroy the CPS and result in catastropic engine failure.
Replace the cps. Available only from the Saturn dealer, the new cps exchange will also result in catastrophic failure when replaced.
Problem with CPS Replacement:
The Saturn dealer will bend down one of the electrical conductors on the electrical connector to the new cps. Upon insertion of the electrical connector into the cps recepticle, the bent pen will defeat cps funcetion.
Fix for the Fix
Straighten each electrical pen to the new Saturn supplied cps. Carefully reconnect the connector to the cps making certain each pen is properly inserted.
Be sure to tighten the plus center connector that holds the main fuse box firmly connected to the main plus battery cable.
Saturn will make you pay dearly and ruin your VUE engine because you shame shame shame on you because you did not pay Saturn the big bucks demanded by Saturn to renew the inadequate Saturn maintenance agreement.
