can you not move the steering wheel at all? When I had the problem of key not cxoming out I was able to turn steering wheel and then was able to move key

yes the steering wheel moves, I just bought a new battery the car started right up and the key is free. Its crazy that a dead battery will keep you from being able to remove your key.

Hey i know that this is some time before you posted this but my Saturn Vue 4 cyl 5 speed, same thing has happened to it as it did you so it seems. I have HID headlights, after market radio, 10in sub, and a remote starter in my car. I was driving it and everything was fine but i had to go out that night so when i tried to crank it, it seemed to strain aswell. My first guess was the battery well after trying to jump it and then letting the battery trickle charge all night i got nothing so started to lean towards the starter. I am hoping that you could help seeing how it seems that we had the same problem. If you need to speak via email we can or if your even still registered all help is appreciated thank you.
#136 of 142 2003 Saturn Vue won't start
Jan 06, 2013 (6:48 pm)
my 2003 Saturn Vue just cranks when you turn the key. engine will not turn over and the dashlights are off. everything else electrial works: lights, ac, radio. The only way I can get it to start is first by turning the key to the "run" position, then I disconnect the negative cable on the battery. when i reconnect the cable, something clicks in the engine, the dashlights are now on and I can start the car only once. Is this a computer problem? Does anyone know how much it is to replace, can i do it myself? Thanks for any advice

I have just over 80k miles and never have had an issue. Ran a ton of errands on Monday all was well. Tuesday at 730am she wouldn't start. Power to dash, lights, etc. She sounded like she was trying then just quit. The car has lived all, but 1 year, in Florida or Arizona. Last time I had a battery issue -- 5 years ago -- there were warning signs. Any suggestions?

If you last replaced your battery 5 years ago its likely time for a new one as they usually only last about 5 years. There is no warning light specific to replacing the battery - they just test it to see how much voltage it has. If its below 12-13v its time to replace.

ok ..so i bought this car from a used car dealership ..first mistake .. well battery died, replaced it, now no start.. already replaced bcm ..the fuel injectors, and tried to locate all the ground splices and make sure they were securely tightend .. no security light on .. just service soon, water coolant level, and now reduced power... occasionally..u canget the car to start up by cycling the key from off to acc ..but in reduced power mode..and wont go faster than 10 mph ..im at my wits end .. as the dealership says i bought the car "as is" ive had to pay for all this myself ...

If you're in reduced power mode there are 2 things to check/repair - accelerator pedal position sensor and throttle position sensor.
Before you throw parts at it you should get the codes read to find out whats causing the service engine light...if you post the error codes it makes it easier to help you too. Will keep an eye out...
