I have learned that unusual engine noises can be caused by oil filters with excessive resistance to oil flow.The worst I've seen are those painted orange that seem to be sold everywhere.

Well, we were not as fortunate as you when approaching customer care about our defective horn/air bag assembly. The Dealership, Saturn of Blue Springs, MO was of no help either and we are basically being told for $1,023.00 they will correct this problem. Not a happy Saturn Vue owner, for sure!! Thanks for the suggestion, however.

That's broken. I can't imagine the air bag assembly costs anywhere near this much. Did you research it at all?
Me personally? I'd be looking for another dealership. At the very least, they should do it at cost.

Very sorry to hear about your lack of success. I'm assuming you've discussed the matter with your zone rep, and directly with Saturn. It might be useful to urge them to discuss the situation with my original dealer - Saturn of Burlington, VT. They were very helpful it putting the information together and did the actual repairs. This was clearly a design and/or manufacturing defect. You should not have to pay for repairs, in or out of warranty. As a last resort, write a letter to your state Attorney General's office and take it to the dealer. Give them one more chance to do the right thing. If they don't respond as they should, mail the letter, and provide a copy to the dealer. Good luck!

So In conclusion.. The Saturn Dealership of Lexington implied I would need a new air bag to fix the horn for the alarm to sound. 1100$ (I drive HORNLESS) THANX

I appreciate the feedback. I just can't believe that Saturn doesn't want to work with us at all on this, and I too, will probably need to drive without a horn (which can be very challenging at times, depending on other drivers around you, until we can come up with something. It's been very helpful hearing all the other Saturn owner's experiences with such a ridiculous design that is so costly to repair!!
#857 of 860 1996 SC1 horn malfunction--HELP PLEASE!!!
Jul 14, 2007 (7:18 pm)
The horn on my 1996 Saturn SC1 sedan started going off one day incessantly. After touching the horn button it stopped. I visited several mechanics, who said that I need a new horn.
I bought a new horn (the one with the two mounting sites). However, my Saturn horn has a three-wire relay cap. I cut that off (per seller at AutoZone) and have tried "wrapping" each wire on one mount while the other is attached to a cable that is attached to the grounded horn. Nothing works.
QUESTION: WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO!?!?!? How can I get this work!?!? PLEASE HELP ASAP!!!!

CARMAN26 ~ Even though I own a 1994 Saturn SL1, I ran into a similar problem in October of 2006.
I am not a mechanic by any means -- and have no clue as to how to make the horn your purhcased work -- but I feel I can point you in the right direction. After diagnosing and correcting it a few times, the meachanics at the garage I go to put in a new Clock Spring. Hopefully this is different than a horn, though like I said -- this is why I go to professionals!!
What I did in the meantime was took the fuse out so the horn wouldn't work, as it would go off in the middle of the night and the neighbors would get upset.
Hopefully this helps a little bit -- please let me know.
A fellow Saturn owner, ~ MATT
#859 of 860 MY HORN wong honk
Jul 15, 2007 (7:46 am)
So here is the Deal. When I push my horn on my 04' Saturn Ion level 2, I can hear the relay click in the engine compartment. The fuses are good. So I then go to find the horn disc and I can not find it any where. My father and my boyfriend who know just about everything about cars can not find it. I was wondering if anyone here has had any experience finding theirs. Or I might just be missing it all together.
Any help would be much appreciated.
