2007 VUE Green Line
Default 2007 VUE and 10 second Auto Shutoff

This was discussed in an older thread, but I couldn't reply to it as it had expired.
Basically, my VUE has an issue of only staying off for 10 seconds \ per shutoff an has been taken in twice to have it checked.

I had the battery recall work completed and it made no difference to the auto shutoff - (short 7 - 12 second cycle) that I thad taken it in for.

I explained the same issue again - (that unless I actually use Excsessive force on the brake) it turns off perfectly, then in approx 10 seconds it comes on. If I simply let my foot off and push it again it goes off for another 10. If I absolutely reef on the brake it will stay off for a 60 seconds easily.

Secondly, I was cleaning it yesterday and vacuumed under the cover that is over the battery. INterestingly the date on it is still septemer of 2006. Does anyone know if the replacement battery recall was parts inside the black metal case, or did they not actually replace mine? It doesn't look new.

Outside of that issue, our Vue has performed well, and we get about 550KM average in the city, and up to 700KM's on the highway.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

It is my understanding that the recall covered the battery modules themselves, inside of the case. The case was only replaced (or in some cases, cleaned and repainted) if it became damaged from battery leakage.

Ours still had the original date post-recall too. I brought it up with the dealer and they assured me that the battery was indeed a new part, although the part # was not written on the work order. I will make absolutely sure of this prior to the warranty / recall expiring, but since they had it for several days and the problem has never returned, I'm sure it's a new part.

That eases my mind a bit, thanks for the reply.

I know that they did work on it (I think it was the clock that I had to re-set indicating the power had been disconnected) but I started to wonder after I saw the same battery (casing) with the old manufacture date on it.

2007 VUE Green Line
Default Re: 2007 VUE and 10 second Auto Shutoff

November 2008 update: I submitted a survey to GM, noting that it has been checked twice for the 15 second shutoff (unless extreme brake pressure is applied) with no positive results. GM called me back. After contacting the dealer (2 days ago) they called me back and said that no problems can be found, (even though they can duplicate it). Well today, I have a check engine light on, ABS light on, and traction control light off , light on. The auto shutoff doesn't work at all, so HOPEFULLY now that its totally down and out they will fix it right.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
