2005 RELAY-2
Default Just bought a Saturn on Dec. 28-09 and already problems! HELP!!!

Hi, I just bought a 2005 Saturn Relay on 28 Dec. My front windshield seems to howl when I drive in wind, and sometimes when I go to start the car it does not start the first time, but just runs the radio and everything else. My keyless remotes barely work. Please help- if you can!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Unfortunately many Relays seem to be troubled by many many problems.
Very basically I'd start by replacing the batteries on the remotes and getting the car battery tested for free at autozone or similar place.

If you have the power sliding doors, keep a close eye on them. They have a habit of opening all by themselves.

They only open by themselves at freeway speeds when someone is sitting in the rear seats. Nothing to worry about.

As long as they don't open while the car is locked it's fine. Unfortunately nobody will be tempted to steal it....

Actually I have had it open while parked and locked and underway while locked as well. In addition, I have now had it open even though I have disconnected it electrically. The rear latch pops and acceleration/gravity does the rest. I'm about ready to fire up the nail-gun and fix it for good.

The remote fobs barely working is due to:

dead batteries in them OR

the contacts have loosened themselves from the circuit board in the remote. The battery holder was originally soldered to the board in 3 spots. You may have to repair the lousy solder job done by whoever made it.

Here's a nice set of instructions from an HHR forum. Your remote should look the same on the inside.

The windshield noise...just ignore it. It won't get fixed.

I had an '05 Relay that had problem list longer than I want to type out. We dumped it as soon as the warranty was up because we were afraid to own it.

The doors...I once had a time I couldn't get one closed. All the problems with them opening and now I couldn't close it. When I finally closed it....the thing dinged non-stop like I was driving with it open.

It's a horrible vehicle and if you can get rid of it...you should.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
