My 2003 Saturn Vue usually runs great. 6 months ago, my check engine light came on, my speedometer stopped working, and my gas gauge stopped as well?


I have had the engine diagnosed three times at Advance Auto, Auto Zone, and Trak Auto. There are no engine code problems that show. They all give the same diagnosis, no trouble codes.
Do you
have the same problem?

Just to add to this one if the gas gauge and speedometer both stopped working at the same time and there arent any codes sounds like a bad body control module. They have a high failure rate on those vues I have replaced a lot of them on those vues. When the fuel level sensor fails on those vues it usually sets a code P0463 fuel level sensor. Do the power door locks keyless entry etc work?

I don't have power windows, door locks, or keyless entry. Everything's manually operated.

Yes, the speedometer and gas gauge stopped working at the same time. All of the other gauges are still working including the interior lights. I've seen the gas gauge move a little bit, but never moving up to where it registers any level. I have not driven it for 3 months because of the speedometer and I'm afraid to drive not knowing how fast I'm going as well as my fuel levels.

Your going to have to have it diagnosed for a bad body control module. It sounds like a bad body control module but it has to be diagnosed to be sure.

Thank you so much. Should I have it diagnosed at a Saturn dealer, or can I have it diagnosed elsewhere?

There are no more saturn dealers they closed the last ones in oct of 2010. You could try a chevy dealer or a good independent repair shop. But your best bet would be a dealer to diagnose it.
