Your windshield wiper's are computer controlled by the BCM - body control module . The wiper switch is an input to the BCM , which energizes two different relay's to turn on the wiper's . Taking the vehicle to a qualied repair shop an having diagnostic's run would be your best bet , unless you have a professional scanner that can read DTC'S - diagnostric trouble code's in the BCM !
DTC B3715 00: Front Wiper Relay Drive Circuit
DTC B3875 00: Wiper High Speed Relay Circuit
DTC B3922 00: Front Wiper Function Select Circuit
This is always the first step in the diagnostic process . An if you do not know how they work ,reading factory service manual info. should be done .
Circuit/System Description
The body control module (BCM) controls the wiper motor based on input from the windshield wiper washer switch. The BCM monitors the wiper washer switch through three separate signal circuits and a ground circuit. The windshield wiper switch high signal circuit is used to determine high speed wiper operation, the windshield wiper switch low signal is used to determine low speed, intermittent, and mist operation through the use of a resistor ladder, and windshield washer switch signal circuit is used to determine washer operation.
Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop.

SOURCE: spark plugs on 2002 Saturn vue

just completed a plug removal and install on my '02 awd v6. if you have the time and patience it's straight forward; common sense was most helpful. to gain access to the plugs, both fore and aft, you must remove, in short, everything near to, associated with, the air intake system. common tools plus a 1/4 socket, with 8 inch extension to hold a #10 star bit. these star bolts are under the rectangular plastic plate atop the intake. once you have those out, disconnect all the wiring, carefully. lift the intake out, look for plug covers, fore and aft, ignition assembly lays atop each row of three plugs. with the hands of a surgeon, remove the ignition assembly, and by golly ye shall see your reward. easy from then on.
replaced my plugs with the iridium 'honeys'; marked improvement in starting, acceleration, smoothnes, noise, and gas mileage to the value of + 3.0%. changed out the oil with mobile1 extended performance, changed transmission fluid. took a shower. time involved, 7.0 hrs. dealer be damned,,priceless!

SOURCE: checking fluid level 2008 saturn vue transmission

  • Step 1 Check the outside temperature. Start the vehicle. Drive at a normal pace for 15 minutes if the outside temperature is above 50 degrees. If the outside temperature is below 50 degrees, drive for an addition 10 minutes.
  • Step 2
  • Park the vehicle in a safe location on a level surface. Place the gear selector in the Park position. Apply the parking brake. Leave the engine running.
  • Step 3 Place your foot on the brake pedal and apply pressure. Move the gear shift lever through each gear pausing 3-4 seconds at each location. Return the gear shift lever to the Park position.
  • Step 4 Allow the engine to run at idle for 3-5 minutes. With the engine still running, pull back on the hood release lever located under the dash to the left of the driver’s side. Lift the hood to its fully opened position.
  • Step 5 Locate the Automatic Transaxle fluid dipstick near the back of the engine. It will have a red loop handle. Grasp the red loop handle and pull the dipstick straight out.
  • Step 6

  • Hello, a sidenote on how new your car is I would not worry about checking your transaxle fluid at the current time. You do the above following information to check your fluid and a good rule of thumb is to not work under a car while it's running. You can check the level by the old forefinger or pinky trick and if you can feel the fluid in the transaxle with your finger the level is fine. I would highly recommend however to check your fluid with your dipstick. If your vehicle does not have one you will have to run through the steps above and check the fluid with a mirror so you do not burn your fingers. I hopes this information solves your problem. Also a sidenote, dealerships have recalled your vehicle for a transaxle leak if yours is leaking do the check above and tighten the fill plug to a torque specification which can be found in a Haynes or Chilton Auto Repair Manual. If your vehicle is under warranty I would have your dealership correct this maintenance issue for you.
    Wipe the dipstick clean with the rag or paper towel. Insert the dipstick back into the reservoir. Wait 3-5 seconds. Pull the dipstick straight out.
  • Step 7 Observe both sides of the dipstick. Read the side with the lower level of fluid on the dipstick. If the fluid is in the crosshatched area the level is acceptable. Reinsert the dipstick into the reservoir and close the hood. If the level is below the crosshatched area, more fluid should be added to the automatic transaxle.

    2008 saturn vue wipers do not return to "home" when I turn them off> Any ideas on how to fix this?


    replace the wiper motor. common saturn problem, and a big pain in the *** to do. it is most likely still under warranty so do a google search to find your nearest GM dealer who has been saddled with the saturn warranty maintenance duty and give them a call with your VIN in hand. if it is not under warranty then buy yourself a new wiper motor at a parts store or on eBay and pay a local garage to put it in.

    Wipers on my 1994 Saturn SL1 (SOHC) sedan start fine, but then won't turn off. Is it more likely the motor or the switch? Is there something else to be looking at?


    the wiper motor assembly has a park sensor, and if this sensor fails, it will not let wipers park or shut off. ( replace wiper motor assembly).

    The front wipers on my Saturn Vue do not spray any wiper fluid. The rear sprays like normal and when I pull the lever for the fronts there is no motor noise from a pump or anything.


    if your vue is a newer model it is common for the washer hose to get pinched by the cowl when the hood is shut. This in turn can puncture the hose, which is easily replaceable. if that is not the problem you may have a bad washer pump.
