Question about 2003 Saturn VUE
The car has died two days in a row out of the blue. When you try to restart it you just hear a clicking of the starter relay. After a half hour it rires up as if nothing was ever wrong. The lights are strong and the battery seems to start it right up. Both times the car was still cold.
Check your battery terminal conections are clean and tight.
Check battery is in good condition.

SOURCE: 99 Saturn won't start
I would suspect the starter solenoid or the starter. I may be telling you something you already know, so if I am, bear with me. When you turn the ignition key to start the car, you apply 12 volt to the starter solenoid (which is physically located on the starter). The solenoid is actually a relay that applies 12 volts( at very high current) to the starter. Since you are not hearing any clicking when you turn the key, I suspect the solenoid. BTW, when you get a starter it usually comes with a solenoid already atteched.
Hope this helps Good luck Loringh

SOURCE: The battery on my 2003
First of all
the voltage of the battery needs to be checked. If the battery is too old then
it has to be replaced. But if the battery is replaced and it’s new then the
voltage of the battery needs to be checked. If the voltage is low then the
battery needs to be charged. But if the voltage is proper but still there is
problem then, Charge the battery then drive the car for few hours then r-check
the voltage of the battery after few hours. If the voltage of the battery gets
low then it’s the fault of alternator. The voltage of alternator needs to be checked.
When the car is running at that time the battery is charged by the alternator.
But if the car battery is loosing its charge after driving for few hours that
means the alternator is not charging the battery when it’s running. So get the
alternator checked, if the alternator is checked ok then check the wire
connection between alternator and the car battery. If the connections of
battery as well as alternator checked out ok then get the ignition switch and ignition
lock cylinder checked. In some cases the car actually does not get off when you
turn the ignition switch towards off. And due to this the car battery looses
its power even when the car is turned off. So the ignitions switch and ignition
lock cylinder needs to be checked. The exact volt at ignition system is 12
volt. Also the voltage of battery is 12 volts. If it’s low or not proper then
it has to be charged.
If all the above possibilities mentioned above checked out OK/perfect then it’s a electrical issue and the wiring's in the car needs to be checked. The car gets power from the battery to get started. so the wires from battery needs to be checked one by one.
Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.
