Re: Fan always on

Where exactly did you get this information?

(And why is it that I have not come across this in my resources? I'm frustrated that circuit and DTC descriptions that are supposed to be...

Re: p2176 Throttle not learned

BTW, "Connector 1" that has the main relay wire leading to pin 30, would be the connector on the right or the one closer to the middle. I'm not sure if that really is connector 1 but that's what...

Re: p2176 Throttle not learned

Yes indeed it was the brown wire.

There are two brown wires that lead into the PCM Connector 1.

One of them is the main relay control ground wire that leads into the PCM pin #30.

It was...

Re: p2176 Throttle not learned

The P2176 was just piggy-backing off of another code, which was the p1682 (ignition 1 switch circuit 2). My scanner would only pick that code up if I did a full auto scan, for some reason.

Re: p2176 Throttle not learned

My scan tool doesn't show up with a relearn procedure and I presume it's because the relearn happens every time you turn the key to the ignition on?

Is there supposed to be an explicit relearn...

Re: p2176 Throttle not learned

Of your 4 "areas" -- throttle, pedal, ecm, and wiring. I have already eliminated the first two. I've merely done a visual on the motor wiring so far, but when I get the time I'll get back to checking...

Re: p2176 Throttle not learned

Thank you for the response and the PDF files.

To answer your questions, my scan tool is an Autel MP808TS.

The throttle blade does not move at all at any time, whereas I'm lead to believe that...

p2176 Throttle not learned

I leave my Vue parked for a few weeks and then when I got to start it up it sounds like crap.

Long story short, the code I get immediately after I've cleared the codes and then turned the key to...

Re: Security light on when parked?

This is exactly right. Thank you, Claybury.

I must have had it in Disabled Mode since I've bought it. And then somehow in the past month it was changed to Active -- must have been fidgeting with...

Re: Security light on when parked?

I appreciate the replies, gentlemen. Thank you.

So you are saying that the light is normal operation? If so, I find that extremely odd that I never noticed the light before. It's a bright light. ...

Security light on when parked?

OK guys, this one has me scratching my head.

When I use my key fob to lock the doors, the security light stays on solid and then after about a long minute, it stays on in blinking mode.

Re: What did you do to your VUE today ?

Wow can't believe this thread hasn't been posted in in such a long time.

But anyway, today I replaced the timing chain tensioner with the updated AC Delco part.

It's NOT plug-n-play as some...

Re: Repair, not replace, a Turn Signal switch?

OK, I figured out what's wrong: The cancellation cams on the clockspring (?) are broken.

I'm glad I didn't blind purchase a switch online. I had one for 40 bucks in my Amazon cart, there. Haha....

Repair, not replace, a Turn Signal switch?

I have a switch that works OK but does not cancel. It was like that when I got the car.

Removing the switch takes about 20 seconds to do.

So I did that.

And then I tried taking apart the...

Re: is this a good deal?

The turn signal cancellation mechanism may be part of the clock spring assembly, in which case you'd have to undo your air bag and pull off the steering wheel and hope you have everything back again...

Re: R. I. P my 2004

Sorry to hear about your Vue. But I don't get how your car broke. You did what with the what now? You broke a spark plug into the engine and you ran it? I don't get it.

Re: Starter solenoid to Starter motor wire replacement?

What remains on both sides of the wire are just nubs of dirty copper. Everything in between just corroded off. So there's really no such thing as splicing some wire in between them.

But I got...

Re: Prolonged Cranking

How about dry gas? Heet?

Everytime I've had longer crank times with my vehicles it was during the winter and of course Heet fixed it every time.

Re: Starter solenoid to Starter motor wire replacement?

The other end of the wire is basically crimped in. It's amazing that Saturn couldn't spring for a little jacket on the wire to protect from corrosion like this. Oh well. I guess they figure that by...

Hi guys. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Re: P0420 ... but is it really the cat?
