I have a 2009 Saturn Vue Red Line, I have done nothing but non-stop work on the thing since I bought it one year ago. Recently, it began having the following simultaneous issues:
Hood Open warning chimes but the hood is closed and the latch seems perfectly fine.
When the hood open chime signals, the wiper fluid symbol pops up to signal low fluid levels.
The Headlights on the driver's side dim and when the high beams are turned on, the pump for the wiper fluid turns on and pumps out all fluid down the back window.
The window wipers move in slow motion and when the high beams are turned on - they don't move at all. They do not return to the "park" position and instead stop at random on the windshield.
I have replaced all bulbs, fuses and checked wiring which all seems fine. I have a new battery in and have just had the dealer replace the body control module with no changes to the above symptoms.
I am at a loss for ideas, has anyone had a similar issues with their Saturn Vue?

Re: Hood/Headlight/Wiper Problems?
According to FSM wiring diagrams the hood ajar switch, wipers and left side head lamps are grounded at G101.
I would locate G101 (see thumbnail) and make sure wiring routed to ground stud is intact with no broken strands. Also verify attaching hardware is tight and frame area under and around ground point is free of paint, rust and corrosion.
Even if ground point looks good I'd use a digital multi-meter (DMM) to check resistance between battery ground post and G101. I'd expect to see less than 1 ohm resistance.
If you don't have DMM - temporarily string a piece of insulated wire (12-14-16 AWG) with stripped ends between battery ground post and G101 and then check results.
An improved ground could make a difference for most, if not all problems.
I try to visit forum often but suggest you use private messages if in a rush (comes to cell) and include email address for extracts. I seldom check visitor messages so please don't use.
