How can you disable thefh deterrent system?

Standard O/E spec Theft Deterrent Systems such as those found on GM vehicles are controlled by the Keyless Entry System remote. However, most commands are vehicle specific.

For instance, on a 2005-up Chevrolet Equinox (a.k.a. Pontiac Torrent, Saturn Vue), the theft deterrent system can either be deactivated totally, set to passive, or active modes.

1. To set the alarm to inactive - Turn the ignition to ACC, and press the panic button (5) five consecutive times until you hear the chime through the stereo. Once you hear the chime you can either:

A: Press the UNLOCK button to deactivate. (Never arms)

B: Press the LOCK button once (1) to set to active. (On when remote locks car)

C: Press the LOCK button twice (2) to set to passive. (On when door is closed)

I hope this information has been helpful to you and I wish you happy motoring!

the park tab is bent. it is a thick piece of metal that must be bent back slightly toward the wiper motor with a hammer or plyers.

I assume this issue started when there was snow/ice on the windshield?

If you jacked up your 2003 Saturn Vue to rotate the tires and now it will not start what could be the problem?

look in the trunk there should be a switch on the left or right side panel some are cover looks like a toggle awith just press it back in.

There is no switch, as mentioned in the first comment. If anything, you tilted the car to a certain angle and the GM PassLock anti-theft device kicked in. I don't know for sure that the Vue has a tilt sensor, but many anti-theft devices can detect if the car is being towed off by sensing the angle of inclination. If you were on a hill and jacked one end of the car up such that the car passed a certain angle with horizontal, this could do it. Generally, you have to wait 30 minutes or 2 hours for the car to release this lock. READ YOUR OWNER'S MANUAL.

Another thing you can do, and i have had exsperiance with my other Saturn LW300 Station wagon who's BCM (Body Controle Module) was acting up and making the security system think someone was trying to steal it. Try disconnecting the negative battery cable and leaving it off for 3-5 min, then put it back on, this should reset the computer.

What causes a Saturn SL1 to continue to make clicking and clunking noises when you turn and when you brake after the CV axles have been replaced?

Check the strut assembly on the side that is making the noise. It is possible that the strut is starting to go and that's what is making the noise. This may especially be true if you can make the clunking sound happen by pulsing the brakes as the car is moving forward.

I just went through a similar problem with a 1997 SL2. The car had only 78,000 original miles when I had new brake calipers and brake lines installed (by a friend) and shortly afterward the car developed a "clunking" noise during hard right turns. We, the friend and I, checked damn near everything and though I felt it had to be related to the brake work the friend, who is a much more experienced mechenic felt otherwise. We installed new axle assemblies on both sides to no avail and I decided to allow the problem to get worse to mak locating it simpler. Finally, after about six months of use the problem got severe enough that I was becoming concerned. The noise started appearing even while braking with the wheels straight. I finally took the car to a Saturn dealer and they located a brake line that had been installed incorrectly and was rubbing on the rotating wheel assembly during certain manuvers, including turning and sometimes when braking. The brake line was worn almost completely through and was on the verge of breaking and replacing the line eliminated the problem. So much for my friends expertise!!

How do you remove a Saturn Vue dashboard?

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 requires 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 VEHICLE�S ELECTRONIC AND/OR COMPUTER SYSTEMS.

Required Tools

The following hand tools will be required to perform this task:

� #2 Phillips screwdriver

� 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 customer�s 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 �L� (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 �cubby� and set the �cubby� 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 unit�s 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 �P� (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 customer�s radio station selections.

How do you change the transmission fluid on a 2003 Saturn Vue with a variable speed transmission?

There is a drain plug at the bottom and a fill plug about 2/3'ds up the case. like changing the oil in a standard rear axle drive rear end.. It's a pain as you will need a suction gun with a endhose to pull the new fluid out of the can of oil and ppump it into the case. Vehicle must be level...Fill until fuild dribbles out the fill hole. You also need to use the special Dexron III/Saturn fluid... I have not found this fluid at part stores. Must by from Saturn dealer,.

I found Valvoline CVT fluid at Napa that is what you need

Does Saturn replace the Bridgestone dueler tires 2004 Vue with 13k on them and are down to the wear line?

No. No maufacturer's warranties cover tire wear. If you complain enough to your sales person, or to a Bridgestone/ Firestone retailer, you might get something???

Unfortunately the Dueler tires are junk, but that is what came on my vehicle. The car wasn't even out of warranty and the dealer was telling me to change the tires.

IF THIS IS A STICK YOU DONT IF THIS IS A AUTO YOU CANT FLUSH THE TRANS THAT WOULD BE A DEALER PIECE OF EQUIPTMENT BUT MOST DEALERS CHANGE THE FLUID AND FILTER IN THE TRANS BY DROPPING THE THANS PAN AND REPLACING THE FILTER AND PAN GASKET. NOT A JOB FOR THE AVERAGE PERSON BECAUSE IF YOU SCREW UP THE CAR MAY NOT SHIFT

Where can you get additional keys for your Saturn vue 2002?

You should go to a Saturn dealership. They will cut the keys on site and program the chip with your VIN #. Replacement keys cut at a hardware store, Walmart, etc. won't work due to the chip located in the original key. I just got 2 made and they (the dealership) charged $7.50 per key. Go any place that cuts keys, hardware store,walmart,auto parts store. They will use the keys you have to cut new one .

How do you adjust the headlights on a 2003 Saturn Vue?

You can use a torx screwdriver or a drill with a T15 (looks like a star) bit. This adjusts the headlight beam up and down. Just did it two seconds ago. Still researching how to aim them left/right. good luck!

Why would there be a humming sound in a 2003 Saturn vue when driving and at accelerations?

A HUMMING SOUND CAN BE A BAD WHEEL BEARING.(YOU WOULD HEAR THIS AT ANY SPEED AND ANY ROAD SURFACE) Our '03 Vue hummed also. Replaced the rear wheel bearing/hub assembly...40,000 miles! My 03 Vue had a bad carrier bearing...The drive shaft is a two part design...and where the two meet is a bearing ...when mine started acting up it sounded like the rear wheel bearing..It's not easy to change you need a bearing press...

How do you remove the door panel on a 2003 Saturn Vue to change the speakers?

ok you have a few screws to take out. take a flathead screw driver and carefully pop off the cover where your tweeter is at, you will have a Phillips head screw where you took it off. then where you have your door latch at there will be 1 more there. after that where your armrest is on the door it should have a plastic cover on it look at the top of it and it should have a little tab in it press it in with your flathead and it should pop on off, then at bottom inside of your door you will have your last one take it out. Grab your door panel and pull straight up on it not out but up the inside of the panel will have tabs on there so be CAREFULL not to break them while taking it off and putting it back on or else you'll end up like me and be missing one. lol.

Where is the alternator located on a Saturn SL?

Altenator is located on the back bottom side if the engine below the power steering pump. To remove it you will need to take of the front passenger wheel and remove the splash shields. Two bolts hold it on. It will take some twisting, bi=ut that is the way the factory manual tells you to take it out.
