Question about 2003 Saturn VUE
Sounds like it's gone into 'safe' or 'limp home' mode. If it wont let you start it there is a possibly serious problem, (think expensive!!). You'll need to get it plugged into a diagnostic machine. That'll give you fault codes for what might be wrong. A mobile auto electrician might be able to give you some ideas as to what's up with it.

How old is your battery? If you get a jump to start your car and it works then your batter is on it's last legs. You can charge a battery but if it does not have the required cold cranking amps (CCA) it will not turn over. If you can get your car started I recommend that you go to any battery shop like NAPA or Interstate and they can check your CCA. If your CCA is too low even with a full charge you need to replace your battery.

If you are below 100 psi then you have a major leak inside the transmission. These will read upwards of 700 psi and require a special gauge to check line pressure. As far as fixing this there are limited parts available for this transmission and a replacement unit is big bucks. Take the car to your saturn dealer and see what they will do. These have a 5 year 75,000 miles warranty for the transmission, and most of them are covering up to and past 100,000 miles for customer satisfaction. If you dont know much or anything about this transmission do not attempt to repair it. Let the trained professional tech at saturn take care of this.

Yup. The throttle body connectors have a history of failing on these cars. Replace the throttle body and the wire connectors that go to it, and you're back in business. Not terribly difficult and you can get the parts from any dealer. Saturn actually has a bulletin out on this problem but they won't cover it unless you're under warranty - no recall for this.

I had the same problem some time ago, lights would go on and off, odometer appeared to stop counting at times rpm gauge would work and then not... power steering would off and on work and head lights would blink on and off when in driving light mode (off position).. The fix for me was I had to have the dash computer replaced (about $500). After doing this around 50k miles ago all the gremlins seem to have remained gone.. Hope this helps

about $200 in parts,,,you can not do this at home,,,,,you need special tools to press yoke on and off and even then sometimes they bend,,,not a easy job,,,,,,i am a master tech and worked at saturn for 8 years and i hated doing these
