I have been having my saturn Aura XE, since 2008 and my problems began with the suspension as well as the maintenance on the breaks are far more frequent than any other vehicle I have had. Furthermore, the electrical problems are uncanny.. it all began in 2009, when the power doors and windows stop working, also my car alarm beeps for no reason at all, but it will not stop unless the keys are entered into the ignition..I have tried purchasing a new remote and battery for the key pad. Also for some reason the key also gets stuck in the ignition as well as the stick is very hard to move from one gear to the next ( Automatic Transmission).In addition to the keyhole on the driver side door had to be replaced which was $200. Furthermore just recently my running light have went out I had a diagnostic done and i was told that there is a shortage in the electrical system and if not fixed in time my car could catch on fire..!!!!!!! This is the first vehicle I have purchased on my own and I am regretting it through and through..I am a college student as well as a mother therefore I need a dependable car, and every day I am in fear for my life that the computer system or wiring will trip and something bad will happen. I just feel as though besides the maintenance that all cars need which I am current on, I should not have to worry about these additional problems and perhaps GM should reconsider a recall on these vehicles before someone gets hurt!!!

I am also having the problem where my cruise control doesn't work and my doors will not lock when I shift into gear. My check engine light just came on, and it probably has something to do with the traction control like the others'. I would like to avoid spending a lot of money on this, seeing as it is a known issue. Do you have any recommendations for the best course of action? Thank you.

I can understand wanting to use your resources effectively in getting these electrical concerns taken care of with your Aura.
We can start with looking into your vehicle's information to see if there are any open recalls associated to your VIN. To do this, please send us an email with the last 8 digits of your VIN.
As far as working with a GM dealership to get your vehicle diagnosed, we can set up a Customer Assistance case for you. There would be a diagnostic fee for the process that you would likely still be responsible for. Also, as the dealership would need to duplicate the concerns, but it sounds like these are occurring regularly. They would also be able to check your engine light and read any codes that are there. Customer Service would be available to help get you set up at the dealership and to follow up after the diagnosis. If this sounds like something you would be interested in, please email us, in addition to the last 8 digits of your VIN, your name and full contact information (phone and address), the name of your dealership, and your vehicle's current mileage.

We regret the day we bought our 2007 Aura. From the get go we had that traction electrical issue and dealership has changed several wires. I am driving along the service engine traction light goes on and engine powers down, so annoying. Finally "knock on wood" it has not happened for several months. I need to look at the paperwork to inform some of you as to what wire they just replaced. Car not here now as my husband and son are picking it up 100 mi away where it broke down Sunday. I had to get a new fuel pump $780.00! I only have 39,500 mi on this car. That is ridiculous. I plan on writing a letter to GM. We will be trading this car when we have the opportunity. It is truly a lemon.

did you have to pay for fuel pump? should be under 5/100. if you are out on time they should goodwill it because of mileage .

I apologize that you have encountered so many frustrations with your 2007 Aura. Was your recent repair on the fuel pump done at a GM dealership? We're available to investigate this situation further, if you like. Please send us an email with more information, including: your name/username, contact information (phone and address), the last 8 digits of your Aura's VIN and current mileage (I realize you posted it here, but sometimes it's difficult to link up an email with a post in the forum), as well as the name of your current dealership.
Looking forward to assisting,

#37 of 107 2009 saturn aura no power
Dec 27, 2011 (12:52 pm)
I have a 2009 saturn aura with 65,000 miles. Car has been great. I have run into an unusual problem. occasionally i get in the car, turn the key and nothing happens. I tried again later, it started. I took the car to a mechanic. check the computer found nothing. Now 6 months later on a trip and stop the car and when i attempted to restart nothing. No lights, no nothing.. I had a guy put a jumper on it and started right up. Had the better tested and everything was OK. So, here I am an occasion problem that doesn't show any computer error codes.
Anyone else had this occur? Did you ever find a solution?

next time it does this make sure it is in park or try heutral. there is a bulliten on shift linkage for 09 auras and may not know it is in park. also computer may not be reading key corrrectly. try different key.
