03 Saturn vue is there an abs sensor on back wheels?
In Saturn Vue
If the car has ABS there will be sensors there, byt ABS is optional. Here is a picture of the hub if it has it http://www.1aauto.com/1A/wheel-bearing-hub-rear/Saturn/Vue/1ASHR00057/1052199

Information for this answer was found on saturnfans discussion forum. This seems to cover removing the center part of the dashboard covering the radio, hvac controls, etc. Overview This manual covers the removal and installation of the factory radio into the 2004 Saturn VUE. This task require…s minimal ability to complete and can be undertaken by any dealership technician. Being an employee of the dealership, familiarity with general mechanical skills is presumed. WARNING: BEFORE BEGINNING THE REMOVAL OF THE FACTORY RADIO UNIT, DISCONNECT THE POSITIVE BATTERY CABLE TO AVOID DAMAGE TO THE VEHICLEï¿½S ELECTRONIC AND/OR COMPUTER SYSTEMS. Required Tools The following hand tools will be required to perform this task: ï¿½ #2 Phillips screwdriver ï¿½ 7mm nut driver Setup Park on a flat surface and set the vehicle parking brake. Turn the ignition key to the ON position but DO NOT START THE VEHICLE. Record the customerï¿½s current radio station selections for programming into new radio unit. On an automatic transmission equipped vehicle, depress the brake pedal and move the shift lever to the ï¿½Lï¿½ (or Low) position. On manual transmission equipped vehicles, depress the clutch and move the shift in 4th gear. Trim Removal During this procedure, use firm but straight forces when removing and installing the plastic shift and dash trim pieces. Pulling upward at an angle could case damage to them. Lift up the lower left corner of shift trim piece until it unsnaps from the shift console. Slide the trim piece back so that it hangs between the seats. NOTE: THERE ARE SEVERAL ELECTRICAL ATTACHMENTS TO THIS TRIM PIECE SO IT WILL NOT SEPARATE TOO FAR FROM THE CONSOLE SO DO NOT ATTEMPT TO FORCE SEPARATION. Using a #2 Phillips screwdriver, remove the four screws holding in the plastic ï¿½cubbyï¿½ and set the ï¿½cubbyï¿½ aside. If vehicle is equipped with factory installed Comfort Package heated seat switch panel, remove the four screws and let the switch assembly hang down into the console. Lift the dash trim piece until the assembly snaps off the dashboard by lifting the bottom. This will expose the stock factory radio unit. NOTE: THIS ASSEMBLY HAS MANY ELECTRICAL AND MECHANICAL CONNECTORS ATTACHED TO IT AND IT WILL NOT SEPARATE TOO FAR FROM THE DASHBOARD, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO FORCE SEPARATION. Radio Removal Using the 7mm nut driver, loosen and remove the two hex head screws (one on the left and one on the right of the radio unit) holding the factory radio unit into the dashboard. Slide the factory radio unit out of the dashboard by lifting on the face plate and pulling the radio unit toward the rear of the vehicle. The unit will slide out of dashboard with little resistance. Once the radio unit has cleared the dashboard, unplug the antenna connector from the rear of the radio unit. After the antenna has been unplugged, the radio unit will slide a little further from the dashboard and you will have access to the large factory wiring connector located on the rear of the factory radio unit. Unplug this connector from the back of the factory radio unit. Radio Installation Remove the replacement radio unit from the packing material. Place the replacement radio unit into the stock radio unitï¿½s dashboard opening. Reconnect the factory wiring connector and antenna connector to the rear of the replacement radio unit. Slide the replacement radio unit completely into the stock dashboard location. The radio unit will align into the opening on the right and left alignment studs. Using the 7mm nut driver, reinstall the two hex head screws to secure the radio unit into the dashboard. Trim Installation Place the top edge to the dash trim assembly into the alignment slots at the top of the dash board. Using even pressure and straight downward force, press on the dash trim assembly until it snaps into place. Place the top edge to the shift trim piece into the alignment slots under the dash trim piece. Using even pressure and straight downward force, press on the shift trim assembly until it snaps into place in the shift console. NOTE: MAKE SURE THAT ALL ELECTRICAL AND MECHANICAL CONNECTORS ARE STILL ATTACHED TO THE DASH AND SHIFT TRIM ASSEMBLY. IF ANY CONNECTOR HAS BEEN DISCONNECTED, REATTACH THE CONNECTOR TO THE CORRESPONDING TRIM ASSEMBLY BEFORE CONTINUING. Wrap Up On an automatic transmission equipped vehicle, depress the brake pedal and move the shift lever to the ï¿½Pï¿½ (or Park) position. On manual transmission equipped vehicles, depress the clutch and move the shift to neutral. Turn the key to the OFF position. Reconnect the positive battery cable. Test the new radio unit and reprogram customerï¿½s radio station selections. The information for the above answer was gathered from the saturnfans forums. (MORE)
There is a detailed description of how to do this at the following URL. It is for a Saturn SL2, but should be similar for your Saturn Vue. . http://www.ehow.com/how_5014553_replace-wheel-bearings-saturn-sl.html
The 2003 Saturn camshaft sensor can be found on the back of thecylinder head. The camshaft sensor should be labeled as such.
2003 Saturn vue 4 cylinder O2 Sensors: The oxygen sensor that is refered to as bank 1 sensor 1 is located on the drivers side of the exhaust manifold, you can see it if you look directly down from above the rear of the motor... looks like a spark plug with wires coming out of it... lol. If y…ou cannot use a wrench (usually 19mm). You need a special 02 sensor socket (parts store (MORE)
When it happened on mine, it was the BCM going out. All the accessories & instrument panel went nuts when the key was in the on position, but when you tried to turn the car on, nothing would happen.
Check your owner's manual first in case yours is different for some reason. Open the hood. Remove the bolt holding in the yellow light (side marker) housing. I did not have to completely remove the side marker housing, but it had to loose enough to allow the headlamp housing to come out. Remo…ve the two bolts securing the headlamp housing to the chassis. Here's the part that isn't obvious: Behind the headlamp housing there is a squarish opening in the chassis. Insert a flat blade screwdriver through the opening. Make sure the screwdriver fits through the opening in the headlamp bracket lower arm. It's kind of hard to see, but if you wiggle the housing, you'll see where the lower arm connects to a bracket on the chassis. Push the locking tab toward the rear of the vehicle with the screwdriver to lift the headlamp bracket lower arm. Lift up the housing. You will have to wiggle it a little to get the housing out from behind the side marker housing. Once it's out you have plenty of room to get to the wiring assembly and bulb. Detach the wiring assembly, rotate the bulb counter clockwise and it should come right out. Reverse the process with the new bulb. (MORE)
i have done this job and its a pain in the butt big time. first you pull the tire and the get the brakes and caliper and bracket off. then you need to pull the tie rod end with a puller which you can rent from the store and you will need a axle pusher which you need to get a larger one then a normal… one. 4 wheel drive because the lug pattern is to big for the small one. then you need to get the lower ball joint nut and pull that off the control arm. now its ready to get the axle to slide out of the wheel bearing. and there are two different ones make sure you get the right one. the axle i had stuck really bad had to use heat and penetrating oil to get that lose then the bearing was seized and had to heat that and keep banging that with a hammer to get it out. i found evpo-rust works really good for rust,takes about 2-4 hours to get stuff lose but its worth it if you dont have to bang your fingers and burn your truck. found it online and autozone is where i got it in maine.

Answer . From 2002 to 2007 the Vue was manufactured in Spring Hill, Tenn. Starting with the 2008 model the Vue will be manufatured in Ramos Arizpe, Mexico.
the dealership told me that it is due to the steering column needing to be lubricated
My Vue uses the smaller blade fuses, I believe that are called mini-bus fuses. There is a larger version used in a lot of Ford products that will not fit in your Vue. If you look in your fuse blocks you should find a few spares provided from the manufacturer.. Good Luck.
If it is a whining noise, the vehicle is low on steering fluid or the power steering pump may be going bad. If it is a clicking noise, the CV joints may be going bad. NOPE a Saturn vue has electric power steering and no pawer steering pumpA Saturn vue has 4 stabilizer links and they are made of p…lastic Moog makes metal replacements for the front but the rear still come from the dealer and are plastic they wear out and make noise when you turn replace them and the noise should go away (MORE)
The intake air temperature sensor for a 2003 Saturn Vue is on theengine block. It is mounted near the top on the driver's side.
Why would there be squeaking in the steering wheel of a Saturn Vue no power steering fluid is required.?
It is possible a family of mice have nested there and that is the squeaking sound you here. that is the most stupidest answer ever if u don't know the answer u shouldn't open your mouth....
The axle nut will need to be removed. You will want to do that as the first step unless you have an air gun that can pull the nut off. From there the brakes will need to come off. hen look on the inside of the steering knuckle. There will be three bolts. These are what holds the bearing in, apart fr…om rust. Remove the bolts and the bearing will come out, in theory. It may be rusted in place and fight you out. (MORE)
Why is there a groaning noise on the 2003 Saturn Vue when turning the wheel and how can this be fixed?
I have an 02 and it moans when I steer (right in the column, not further under the hood) too.. This happened after it was nearly completely undriven for a couple of years except for occasional Sunday forays to take my mother-in-law to church.. I have been driving the moaning-mobile for a year stea…dily and it seems to be less now, however no one has been able to answer and I hesitate to take it to the dealer and be shafted.. Stay in touch. email@example.com (MORE)
I have the same problem since mine needs to be replaced. From what my wife's mechanic told her, it plugs into the side of the air take assembly (that's the black hard plastic thing on top of the engine that connects the air filter to the engine itself. Good luck in trying to get at it to change it -… I cannot pull the plug out for the life of me. Hope this helps. (MORE)
If you do not know how to replace it, then you should not try to replace it. If you want to know WHERE it is, then look near the thermostat housing.
The ABS wheel sensor sends a signal that the car might be introuble. If the car is sliding or feels like it might spin out ofcontrol, the brakes are automatically cut on.Ã
above the starter bottom front of engine has one bolt using ten mm may have to remove starter to access
I did this today,and it's pretty easy once you've given the bolts a good soak too free them up.Chock the front wheels, as the work needs to be done with the handbrake off.Remove the rear wheel,and rear caliper,you'll see a small flush fitting screw in the brake disc,remove this,you might have two op…posite each other,but i had one on mine.Now have a lump hammer and strike the centre hub of the disk while using the other hand to prize it off,you'll have to be quite assertive with the hammer,as long as you don't hit the diisc surface,or the outside of the disc you'll be fine.Don't be scared of it.On removal of the disc you'll see the abs sensor.Mine had a 5mm Allen bolt holding it on.Now if your doin the side near the exhaust system.ie.rear passenger side,you'll notice where the sensor housing is bolted to the hub,it'll probably be all rusted and bubbling.This causes the sensor to pull away,and it doesn't pick up the magnet behind the wheel bearing.This is normally the fault,and not the actuall sensor itself.Clear away the bubbling with a screw driver.Refit the sensor, and you will see it sits much closer to the magnet now.Refit thedisk,calliper and wheel.Disconnect the battery for 20 mins to clear the fault on the dash,if you'r unlucky you'll have to go to a diagnostic too have the warning light cleared off the dash.. You can also access the sensor by lining the wheel nut hole to the sensor and put a long reach 5mm Allen key through to the bolt. (MORE)
On the 2002 Vue with the v6 engine, the sensor is on the side ofthe engine. The sensor is right beside of the oil filter.
The 03 Saturn Vue does not use a stand alone camshaft sensor. Thesystem uses the ignition system as a sensor, tapping into thenumber one and four cylinder firing systems.
My 2004 Vue would've been fairly easy but over time the bearing/hub melded itself to the swing arm. Had to take it in so they could beat the crap out of it to get if off. Total job $124.00 (pretty cheap) and 5 hours of cussing and swearing from me trying to do it myself in December in Michigan....!!…!!. IF all goes well with yours, obviously take the tire, brakes, rotors, and then the bearing/hub assy should come off--don't remember how many bolts though. If you're mechanically inclined this actually isn't a tough job. (MORE)
There is a video on U-Tube showing where the sensor is and how to change it. It is above the starter
there's 4 ho2 sensors total 2 of them are on the front of the engine and the other 2 are on the back of the engine
The anti-lock brake control module is located in the engine compartment on a bracket that is attached to the radiator support .. It is an on-board diagnostic non-repairable unit consisting of two microprocessors and the necessary circuitry for their operation. These microprocessors are programmed i…dentically. The anti-lock brake control module monitors system operation during normal driving as well as during anti-lock braking and traction assist cycling, if equipped. (MORE)

If you're not experiencing a cylinder misfire-check engine light should come on-then it's a transmission issue.. Visit your dealership-there is extended special coverages for vue models on transmission replacement. Might be there a while though it's usually on national back order. But as long as the…y are looking at the transmission view while test driving then it should be covered ---FREE! Worked at a dealer, I know. (MORE)
\nBecause with AWD the rear wheels kick in until the front wheels have solid traction. Refer to owners manual, I had the same question, because i never drove and AWD, until I got a VUE. I guess it's called torque steering.
The on-board computer senses a problem with the engine. A general fault condition is registered which keeps the cooling fan running regardless of temperature until the code can be cleared from the computer. The general fault code means the problem is not deterministic. It happened on my 03 Vue afte…r a slight hesitation under moderate load (going uphill with the A/C on). My mechanic replaced both fuel pumps (not cheap), and the problem was reduced but not eliminated completely. To keep the problem from occurring too frequently: (1) Do not buy cheap gas, (use Chevron, Shell, Mobil, 76, etc.) (2) Do not run your tank empty (3) Add a few gallons of 89 octane to every fill up Mechanics charge a fee to hook up a computer and clear the code. You can do this yourself and save a few bucks by disconnecting the battery cable for a few minutes. Sometimes I need to pull the fuse (relay?) in the fuse box marked "main cooling fan". The persistent cooling fan problem on my 03 Vue is quite intermittent - it happens to me only twice a year. (MORE)
Yes, but it takes a special test module that isn't cheap. Go to a good mechanic and have them test it. It doesn't take long and in the long-run it's cheaper that buying a tool that you may never use again.
remove road wheel and with a long 5mm Alan key insert straight through the disk until lined up with sensor and remove........hey presto 10mins a side! no need to remove calipers or pads like peugeot say!
I am currently having this same issue with my 03 Vue, and I got a diagnostic done (twice). The issue seems to be the BMC. Initially, I had the same issue as you, but over about the next year, my gauges started to bounce and the powersteering goes in and out. My SERVICE light also lit up and my A/C s…topped working. Hope this helps. (MORE)
1. Remove the negative battery cable. 2. Remove wires on the starter. 3. Remove the two mounting bolts. They have 15mm heads. (The top bolt is hidden and hard to get to.) You may have to remove the solenoid (on top of the starter) to get to it. 4. Remove starter Replacement is the opposite of the r…emoval. (MORE)
The Right Front ABS wheel speed sensor is also used as a rough road sensor to assist the knock sensor in dectecting weather there is a knock from engine or bump from the road in order to adjust the spark and fuel.
There are 2 O2 sensors. One is in the front (bank 1) before the catalytic converter, between the exhaust manifold and the catalytic converter, and the other is in the rear (bank 2) after the catalytic converter and is screwed in. The front one is heated and the rear is not. That means after the car …begins to heat up the front one comes on and the rear is always on. (MORE)
The V6 in the Saturn VUE is sideways (FWD) vs. the version used in the Cadillac Catera (RWD). On the Saturn, the crank sensor is mounted on the front side of the engine, sort of near where the trans mounts to the engine. Pretty easy to change.
Can wheel bearings be lubricated on Saturn Vue and other similar models giving problems. Lubrication through the hole for anti-lock sensor?
No you can not Lubricate the front wheel bearings, They are factory SEALED bearings. Must REPLACE the bearings with new ones. IF the bearing is noisy then the balls inside are damaged. Lubrication will do nothing to help. Replace only You don't Get it! The question was to address lubricating t…he bearings through the port for the anti-lock sensor before any damage occurs - do you wait to add oil to the engine until the bearings start to grind? I repaired office equipment fore 30 years and understand the need for proper maintenance. At $500.00 per bearing and the fact they are a problem - made in China- a little 90 weight oil added before there is a problem seems logical? I took the old bearing and added oil and after working it a while it improved - still dammaged thought! Maybe you work for the Chinese?\n\nYour contradictory answers amuse me. If you know all the answers why ask? \nIf you "lubricated and worked it a while and it improved" then how was there not a problem as you stated.\nMaybe I do work for the Chinese......maybe your an idiot. Who knows, but i think your answer speaks for itself. \nMaybe you can add a little rubber to your tires so they don't wear out as quickly. Surely you figure something out to save a few bucks\n (MORE)
You have an 03 silhouette and your traction light keeps coming on no matter how often you reset it by turning the engine off and then back on could it be the abs sensor and if so where is it loca?
There are numerous ABS sensors. You need to have the system checked for codes to know what the problem could be.
It is not on the tire at all. Depending on the vehicle, it's either on the axle, steering knuckle, or elsewhere.
For the 3.0 v6, it's in the front of the engine just below the oil filter. For the 4 cyl, it's near the starter.
The dealership that sold saturns or does their matinence now (since saturns are no longer in production).
It has 1 on each front wheel and 1 on the transmission tail shaft. If it's a 4-wheel drive then it will be on the transfur case tail shaft.
The ABS light is on because there is a problem with the system. Until the problem is fixed the light will remain on. Once the problem is fixed the light will reset itself.
There are two knock sensors on the 3.0 The location depends on which year model you have. Best found from underneath. On the 2002 and 2003, one is on the front of the engine block and the other on the rear. Look underneath the exhaust manifold. The trouble codes refer to #1 and #2. My guess is… that the front one is #1. (MORE)
The miles per gallon for the Saturn Vue varied by the model of the Vue in question. For example, the Vue 6 cylinder, 3.5 Liter engine got a combined 18 MPG, as opposed to the 4 cylinder, 2.4 Liter engine which got 28 MPG combined.
A scraping, ticking noise up high in the steering column is normally caused by the SIR coil. This is a coiled flat wire for the air bag. The noise does not harm anything. You have to replace the SIR coil. If the noise is down low, this could be due to a bearing in the steering column, or may even be… a fault in the steering rack and pinion that transmits noise up the column. A dry boot at the firewall can also make noise. Try lubricating the rubber boot with a spray lube, like a good lithium grease. (MORE)
The cost of a 2007 Saturn Vue can vary widely depending on many factors including the condition and mileage of the car. According to MororTrend, the average resale value stands around $10,692 in excellent condition. However, a Saturn with 22,000 miles can sell for as high as $13,000 while one with o…ver 100,000 miles can sell for as low as $9,100. (MORE)
Disconnect the battery negative. Put chocks on the back wheels toprevent them from rolling, and set your parking brake, as well.Unless you're as thin as an Olympic ice skater, you'll probablyneed to jack up the front. Do that, and either use jack stands, orlet the front tires rest on some wood block…s. The starter will be located in front of the flywheel housing.Usually, it's on the right (passenger side on a left hand drivevehicle) side of the flywheel housing. Remove the mounting bolts..they usually are oriented upwards. Pull the starter out once thisis done. On the back of the starter, there will be two or threewires connected. You'll need an appropriately sized ratchet orwrench to take off the nuts so you can remove these wires (althoughnot familiar with the Vue, Saturn used a number of GM components,so I'm assuming a 13mm socket or wrench is what you'll need). Besure to take note of which wire goes where on the starter. Youmight need to use a slotted screwdriver to get the blade terminalsoff the studs. Installation is the opposite of removal. (MORE)
Will a serpentine belt that breaks and wraps around the crankshaft and breaks the timing belt hurt the motor in a 03 Saturn vue?
I'll try to answer this clearly. First of all if the timing beltbreaks it can hurt the engine. A value can be open when it shouldclosed and it can be hit by the piston. The serpentine beltbreaking and wrapping around the crank shaft is HIGHLY unlikely tocause the timing belt to break. The crank shaf…t supplies the pulland push to the timing belt not the cam shaft. You would have tocause the crank to stop immediately to have any chance of itbreaking the timing belt. The serpentine belt is not strong enough,even when wedged behind the pulley, to stop the crank thatquickly. (MORE)
