Thanks for your help...topping off fluid seemed to solve(kudos to your mechanic as well)....I just started having this issue last week and....1st thing I looked at was brake fluid reservoir and it was just above low level line(proly need bake pads; will change soon)but did not think it would solve because it looked like the low level sensor was still much lower than the fluid....2nd I found a thread on the internet about a TSB for 08 Saturn Vue and it was about checking wiring and/or connector for the rear abs circuit...so I did this and found wiring, wheel sensors and connectors ok...I even pulled rotors off for inspection. I am really glad I found this thread. THANKS AGAIN Oh! I do need brake pads. L8tr!
#21 of 46 ABS/Traction control issues
Feb 25, 2013 (2:19 pm)
Every winter for the past few years, the ABS and traction control lights come on in our 2008 Vue XE. The first time I took it in, they fixed it under warranty. The second time, they said the original repair was under warranty, and they fixed it again. Turns out that they just did a cobble repair on it the first time, and actually replaced parts the second time. I believe that it was the left rear sensor that was acting up. Once again, sloppy winter driving conditions were upon us, and the light is on again. I am hard pressed to want to pay a thing for repair if it turns out to be the same wheel again. How common is this for this vehicle. I have seen others talk about other issues, but not this specific kind of problem.
#22 of 46 8 months to find the problem

After driving the Vue for 8 months and complaining about the vibrating break pedal, a fix was found. A few days ago, the ABS and Traction Control lights came on. I took the vehicle in and while driving, the brake pedal vibrated. Finally, the dealership found the problem - the left wheel speed sensor was found to be "open". Because I had the car in earlier for the same problem while the car was under warranty, the dealership didn't charge me for the repair. I'm done with GM

Hey Katiedid88 "That's how my started and little did I know it was only the beginning." Only the beginning, so what else is to come?

Im having what sounds like the same problem with a 08 Vue. The longer you drive it, the more the brakes are applied by themselves. What did your problem turn out to be?

Just this weekend I've experienced the exact same problem on an 09 VUE(72k)....found this thread and need to know if adding fluid is the fix. I assume by now you've seen enough such episodes to form an opinion...thanks, brooks

Since I am not a technician, I cannot advise on if adding fluid will correct the issues you're experiencing. If you'd like to send us your VIN, contact info and dealership we can explore what options there are in getting this problem corrected for you. We can be reached by email at socialmediagm.com [attn Amber].
