Default 2003 Saturn VUE Remote Keyless Entry Stopped Working

Hello,

I have a 2003 Saturn VUE. The remote keyless entry (rke) stopped working about a week ago. I initially thought the battery was dead in my remote. I replaced the battery, which didn't help. I then tried the other key fob, which didn't help. I put the new battery in the second key fob, still no good. The battery meters good (3 volt).

All other accessories in the car seem to work fine (power locks, windows, radio, dome light, dash, etc)

Is there something I should be checking on the VUE side?

Thanks,
Tom

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

2004 VUE 2.2L
Default Re: 2003 Saturn VUE Remote Keyless Entry Stopped Working

I also recently replaced the battery in one of my remotes. I didn't test the voltage on either battery- I'm only guessing it was a dead battery. The new battery hasn't fixed the non-working remote as well. I'm thinking that I'll have to reprogram the remote. I think I remember seeing something about that in my FSM. Have you checked the owner's manual?

I have not checked the owner's manual, but I will tonight when I get home. Does anyone know where the RKE box is located on the 2003 VUE, and how to re-associate it with a key fob if there has been a problem of some sort?

2003 VUE 3.0L
Default Re: 2003 Saturn VUE Remote Keyless Entry Stopped Working

I think you will just need to re-synch the fobs with the RKE. There are instructions on how to do it in the owner's manual. It's quite simple and you don't need to dig into any hardware to do it, but I don't recall the steps off hand. If that doesn't work then you will likely have to bring it all to a Saturn dealer and they can reprogram as required and as long as no further troubleshooting or repairs are required they should only maybe charge you like $20US for the effort.

2007 VUE Red Line
Default Re: 2003 Saturn VUE Remote Keyless Entry Stopped Working

Unless something changed between models, a tech-II is required to reassociate the rke's with the vue. So a trip to the service department would be the prognosis. Some service department's will graciously program them for free, although they are supposed to charge you. They would also be able to give you some insight in to why the RKE's may have quit working in the first place.
