Me too. I found the keychain I had was quite heavy and heard that could be a problem. Also when I turn the key now I lift the key upwards and have had no trouble lately. Hope that works for you too.

Where is the fuse location for electric steering for 2005 Saturn Vue


The power steering fuse is part of the ignition fuse, it uses power from ignition to engage power relay system on steering column next to the electric powersteering motor. Check the two wire port for ground and power with vehicle running. Mostly all saturns with electric power steering are all under a safety recall, with free replacement.

FOB not working on my saturn vue and can't get key in ignition or turn ignition.


That will usually happen when your gear shift is not fully in park. Start by checking that to make sure.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The key to my 2008 Saturn Vue is stuck in the ignition. It's stuck at ACC. There's no power to the car at all. What do I do?


I have a 2008 Saturn VUE. I had the problem where my key would not turn to off and I wouldn't be able to take it out of the ignition it was also on ACC. So even though I had power in my car it might be the same problem you have. I just kind of hit the shift up when it was in park. This should unlock the key. You should hear a click and after that you should be able to turn it all the way off and take the key out.

When I try to start my 2003 saturn vue the key is hard to turn unless I push brake very hard and turn the steering wheel. What's the problem?


My 2004 Saturn Vue had the same problem. I thought the ignition had to be changed and I drove the Vue a long time with the key hard to turn and pushing it in before turning it. I mentioned it to a Saturn Dealer mechanic while having warranty work done. He told me a new key had to be made using the key code (located on the inside panel on the driver door). They made it and it totally fixed the problem. I think any GM dealer can do that for you.

Saturn vue ignition key won't turn


It was very likely that the problem turning the key was due to the steering column lock mechanism. Sometimes when you lock the steering wheel, if you the mechanism will bind up, making it difficult to unlock the ignition with the key. Often when this happens, you will be parked on a hill with your wheels agains a curb or some such item. Once you turn the wheel hard to the right (or left), the pressure is released on the locking mechanism, and the key will turn easily. This is a similar situation to what can happen in an automatic if you park on a hill without the parking brake.
try doing this:
pop the off the circle piece around the ignition and the holster cover under the steering wheel.
that ought to work.

Ignition


apparently steering colum lock. next time try turning your steering wheel to the left while turning the key in the ignition. don't stress the ignition. though if it isn't your stearing lock the last thing you want to do is bust up the or in come cases break your key off in there. Try turning the stearing wheel though. 99% of the time thats what it is.
