Saturn IOn 2004 Pwr Steering problem and speedometer not working

cars, check fuses first the scan the PCM see error there YOU WILL but you forgot to look first then ask the blind to guess. the brake pedal (not emergency) does that ,it is shifter lockout. on all modern cars. a lockout solenoid on some clicks the operators guild told you to step on brake and shift out of park autmatic trans not stick shift manual transmission. do not break the brakes;. speedo dead is 1 of 3 things (beside stated blown fuse) 1: IP cluster bad or wires on back fell off. 2: IP cluster CANBUS network dead. 3: speed sensor VSS1 dead. in all 3 cases the scan tool tells you all that in seconds flat.
  • buy the tool
  • rent on .
  • barrow one.
  • or as the shop to scan it , repeater here 10,000+ times but sure nobody searches...
USA OBD2 scan tools. vast choices, endless. ,hand held or simple PC or phone adapter.

04 Saturn Vue 2.2 changed 02 sensor bank 1 sensor 2 now getting code PO420??

The diagnostic trouble code (DTC) P0420 "Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold" is one possible outcome following the Catalytic Converter Monitor (test). This monitor is one of the last tests to be performed by the powertrain control module (PCM) because other failures in the system could compromise this test's result. Catalyst efficiency is tested by observing the oxygen sensor signals both before and after the catalyst. Before the catalyst, the signal should appear as a sine wave as it switches back and forth between rich (0.9 volts) and lean (0.1 volts). After the catalyst, the signal should be flat-lined on the rich side (about 0.7 volts). This is because a healthy catalyst will store oxygen and therefore remove the "lean" portion of the signal/waveform. If the signal after the catalyst still appears as a sine wave, the PCM concludes that the catalyst can no longer store oxygen and should therefore be replaced. In your specific scenario where a downstream (post-cat) O2 sensor was just replaced, I would theorize that this sensor had failed and was flat-lined. Then when it was replaced two things happened: 1.) the oxygen sensor began to work properly which allowed the oxygen sensor monitor (test) to complete, and 2.) the catalyst monitor then ran and used the new (accurate) sensor data to determine that the catalyst efficiency was below threshold.

Saturn vue 2007. When engine starts there is a clicking noise under dash for a few seconds. No other problem

There could be a lot of reasons. One could be that the air vent actuator is moving. Set the air management controls on a different setting and see if that changes the clicking.

I have a 03 saturn vue and the security light comes on and off the dash lights do the same what could this be? and driving home tonight it died on me.

This is a common problem on GM vehicles. This security light indicates a failure in the antitheft system that comes standard on your vehicle. It miscommunicates with itself and then shuts down the vehicle as a protective measure. There is no recal on this. The dealer wont help you. Go to this link for info and possible ways to beat this problem.http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

How to change blower motor resistor on 2008 Saturn Aura XE

A blower motor that only works on certain speed settings could be the result of a faulty fan speed switch or blower motor resistor. If only one single speed works (usually HIGH), chances are the problem is a faulty resistor. Blower motor resistors can vary greatly in price depending on if the A/C system is Automatic or Manual. For example, an automatic A/C resistor costs around $175 while a manual A/C resistor only costs about $25. These two parts are not interchangeable; the correct resistor must be used for the type of system that's being repaired. Thankfully changing a resistor isn't too big of a job. The process starts by removing the right "close out panel" which is the cover under the dash near the glove box. The cover is only held in by retainer clips so no tools are necessary; just pull and remove. Next, disconnect the blower motor resistor connector and inspect for a melted condition. If damage of this nature is seen, a blower motor resistor pigtail will need to be installed as well. Finally, remove two screws from the resistor and the part will come loose from the HVAC box. Installation is as simple as reversing the removal procedure.You can read more here: https://www.yourmechanic.com/article/how-to-buy-a-good-quality-heater-blower-motor
