2002 VUE 3.0L
Default 2002 Saturn Vue SES

Recently purchased a 2002 Saturn Vue 3.0L. Had driven it about 30 miles. Drove 20 miles on the hwy and the SES light came on as well as check oil light came on but as I got off the hwy. after going again they both shut off and now the SES light is back on again. Nothing seems to be wrong and I know that I need to have the code checked but maybe someone could give me some ideas as to what this could be before I get the chance to. It has 159000 miles on it. I did have the A/C running on full blast but I would typically assume an O2 sensor as I've had that issue in the past with other vehicles. Suggestions?

Thank You

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

fore warning you will need to buy special tools to work on this motor. you will need torx bits, 8 inch 1/4 inch drive extention, star bits to remove cover over park plugs, and somthing to hold intake up while working on cyl 1,3,5

OP doesn't own a scan tool, doubt he would even attempt to get into the engine.

Which Oil Light are you referring to?

2002 VUE 3.0L
Default Re: 2002 Saturn Vue SES

I had the codes ran. Turns out to be the VSS. Although my other question but this is almost a general any vehicle question. Cause I'm sure no matter the vehicle the answer could be identical. If my turn signals work off an on I would assume there is a short either in the turn signal switch or the wiring correct? Just trying to ask questions as I am new to owning a Saturn and only a semi DIY mechanic. Mostly know what I know from doing the work I personally have done myself.

Default Re: 2002 Saturn Vue SES

I would suspect the stalk switch... Maybe some plastic-safe electronic parts cleaner( spray) can help it once you get it exposed.
