Take the car to a authorized chevy dealer that services Saturn's. They will remove the key hole cylinder and vacuum the remaining key socket and cut you a new key (highly recommended) If you write GM a letter and explain what happen to a inferior product and its never happened to any other car in your life, they might credit you back with oil changes..

The vibration is caused by the rotors being warped. Remove the front tires and check the front brake pads. Replace if needed. This is a pretty straight forward job. The rotors are "fall off" rotors and you won't need anything special tool wise.

make sure to check your fuses and ground wires first. when you are set on which part is bad do a quick check of everything else before you jump into it.

SOURCE: saturn vue ignition key won't turn

It was very likely that the problem turning the key was due to the steering column lock mechanism. Sometimes when you lock the steering wheel, if you the mechanism will bind up, making it difficult to unlock the ignition with the key. Often when this happens, you will be parked on a hill with your wheels agains a curb or some such item. Once you turn the wheel hard to the right (or left), the pressure is released on the locking mechanism, and the key will turn easily. This is a similar situation to what can happen in an automatic if you park on a hill without the parking brake.
try doing this:
pop the off the circle piece around the ignition and the holster cover under the steering wheel.
that ought to work.

SOURCE: how to add fluid to a 2004 Saturn Vue transfer case

well if it is a v6.. the stick is on your right(as you stand in front) and way down. It has a yellow handle, but hard to see.

if you have v4 probably doesn't have one they are sealed.

That will usually happen when your gear shift is not fully in park. Start by checking that to make sure.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2005 saturn vue...the ignition key is getting harder and harder to get to turn...even parked on even ground..usually have to play with the steering wheel to make it work...but its getting worse


Me too. I found the keychain I had was quite heavy and heard that could be a problem. Also when I turn the key now I lift the key upwards and have had no trouble lately. Hope that works for you too.

When I try to start my 2003 saturn vue the key is hard to turn unless I push brake very hard and turn the steering wheel. What's the problem?


My 2004 Saturn Vue had the same problem. I thought the ignition had to be changed and I drove the Vue a long time with the key hard to turn and pushing it in before turning it. I mentioned it to a Saturn Dealer mechanic while having warranty work done. He told me a new key had to be made using the key code (located on the inside panel on the driver door). They made it and it totally fixed the problem. I think any GM dealer can do that for you.

Sometimes the steering wheel will not turn and once the key is placed in the ignition it will not turn


The wheel is binding on the ignition interlock.
Turn the wheel either clockwise or counter-clockwise as you turn the ignition key.

2002 Saturn Vue Ignition Cylinder lock problem


The keys on this vehicle have a problem with wearing down to the point where it's a pain to get them to work in the ignition cylinder. Examine your keys for wear and that may have been your problem since day one.
I have a 2004 Vue and I have the only key I got with it (used car) worn down to the point where it will no longer work in the back door and is a pain to use in the ignition cylinder. It also falls right out of the ignition cylinder when the car is running. I have a copy of the key that was made when I got the car which works just fine and doesn't fall out, and looking at the two side by side, you can see that Saturn's key has worn down substantially since I got it two years ago.
