Re: Is there a front turn signal fuse?

You need to do more troubleshooting, but right now my money is on a bad ground.

I would start by testing for power and ground at the sockets.

Re: Is there a front turn signal fuse?

Do the hazard lights still work? If not, check the ground connection for front turn signals.

The power for the turn signals is provided by the BCM. This is why there isn't a separate fuse for them.

Re: 2009 Saturn Vue Liftgate Won't Open

Check the REAR CLOSURE 10A fuse in the I/P fuse panel if you haven't already done so. If it is blown, you may have a short in the power circuit going to the liftgate actuator.

If hitting the...

Stay away from MEVOTECH. I put their premium ones in our Equinox and they are junk. They only lasted a couple years.

Re: Did all Vue Models have Amps in them? (Amplifier, speakers, subs, subwoofer)

No, only those with the "AAS" premium audio option have an external amplifier. If equipped, it will be under the right rear passenger seat. Your Vue would also have a subwoofer in the right rear...

Re: Door Chime with Key Removed

I had this problem with our 2007 Equinox years ago. Replacing the ignition switch was the solution in our case.

Re: Is my bcm shot?

It took me too long to edit my previous post, so disregard it. After thinking about it, the wiring in your doors is probably fine, but it wouldn't hurt to check them. Your speaker wires may be frayed...

Re: Am I dealing with an ignition switch or BCM?

Well, your car uses both an ignition switch and a BCM, but I doubt either is the source of the problem. People jump the gun all the time thinking the worst is happening when usually the solution is...

Yes, you could have a broken wire in either of the front two door jambs.

Re: What year did the IONs switch to steel fenders

None.

Re: Power Window master switches NOT lit up!

I attempted to salvage/repair my switch before replacing it. I can confirm the PCB inside of the switch (at least the two window switch for the quad coupe) does not have an LED on it.
