2005 Saturn Vue 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 100, 00 miles
When your anti locking break lights go on and the front wheel locks and temperatures melt the plastic lugs, doesn't them errors get logged into the computer. Doesn't Saturn have a specific diagnostic tool to read them errors off the messages logged in the history of the computer. I have been a Saturn owner for 20 years and they always would use a test tool to read the computer to diagnose problems when I took it into service. I would like to confirm my understanding and what service providers such as maybe a Midas would have this diagnostic tool besides GM to dump the computer logs. I have a service issue with a GM dealer recommended by Saturn that resulted in major damages and fortunately no injuries. The dealer did break work, the problem occurred a month later, I took it back to service and they found no problems. Then it reoccurred and damaged the front breaks, both front calipers, the right ball joint, the master cylinder hose was burnt, and the master cylinder seal broke. A reputable break specialist service provider clearly identified the problem with the right front caliper that should have been seen after the first reported problem. If it was corrected at that time the other problems would not have occurred. The dealer said he took it for a ride but it is clear the breaks were not visually checked let alone the computer diagnostic test done. They don't have the tool. I need to confirm I am right from an outside party that them errors would be logged in the computer and who has the tool so I can dump the logs. I am getting the run around from Saturn and GM on what they will do regarding this problem. They couldn't even expedite a part I have been waiting for a week. Thanks.
have the same problem?
