The light and the speedo are probably the same problem. The VSS vehicle speed sensor is located at the back of the transmission by the right drive axle Check if the connector is secure If ok replace the sensor.

The check engine light only comes on for something that affects emissions

The usual issue with a 2005 Saturn Vue engine light is a problem with the EGR valve. It is best to have a mechanic check out the problem.

Nope, bet it was the other way around... Your speedometer stopped working and your check engine light came on. A broken speedometer (don't know what car so I can't pinpoint it) will cause a whole bunch of codes.

Yes. I have a bad cylinder in the engine of my Saturn Outlook and it was detected by the check engine soon light.

Have electronic vehicle speed sensor in transmission checked out. It will cause loss of speedometer function and set a fault code(check engine light).

start with engine off. press and hold that speedometer resetter while starting engine, check engine light will flash a few times then disappear.

There are pages and pages of things that can cause a check engine light. You need to have it checked with a scantool. Then the code can be diagnosed and repaired

Smaller tires should not cause the check engine light to come on. Smaller tires will cause the speedometer to be off.

Do you have check engine light? If not you have an electrical problem within the speedometer assembly.

Take it to Autozone and have it read the codes if it is OBD2 (1996 and newer) if not to see if the check engine light is related to the speedometer problem disconnect the negative battery cable and hold the brake down for about a minute. This should turn the check engine light off. If it does drive it to see if the speedometer works. If it does they are related somehow, if it still doesn't then it must be two separate problems.

You need to have it checked for codes to know what to diagnose.

Speedometer is an integrated part of the instrument panel. If you have problems with the speedometer, check first the peed sensor. My 96 Sentra have problems with the speedometer. I replaced the speed sensor and instrument panel and still the dial stops intermittently, this turns-on the check engine light. For me, the next step is to check the wiring.

There are pages and pages of things that can turn on the check engine light. You need to have it checked fro codes with a scan tool. You can then dignose the cause of the code.

That is the check engine light.That is the check engine light.

It sounds like your VSS(Vehicle Speed Sensor) has gone bad, which will turn on your check engine light.

User Avatar

because you have an engine misfire.most likely the DI cassette is faulty. (Ignition)
