#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.

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...
#142 of 142 04' Vue 6cyl. 60k miles. Wont Start?
Mar 03, 2013 (1:22 pm)
04' Vue 6cyl. 60k miles. This just randomly happened a few days ago. Engine will not turn over with key, but I can take a screw driver and bypass key and start it up by jumping the starter cylinoid. As if it is not getting juice to the starter by using the key? Starter works, battery is good, Any ideas?
