2006 VUE 3.5L
2003 L-Series 2.2L Sedan
Default Radio Not Working 2006 VUE

The radio is a standard one not an upgrade. It has the single cd with amfm. This morning the cd poped out of the radio and nothing worked. I never got a chance to turn it on . But the On Star part of the system works fine. I drove into a local Saturn dealer who informed me it sounds like the radio needs to be replaced at a cost of $450-$500. I am not automotively mechanical. Are there any aftermarket shops like Best Buy or similar that do the job and can keep on star working? Any suggestions would be appreciated

You can try the link below. They don't mention Saturns but you can call them to be sure. You can also get a great stereo from them. Order it all at once so you can ire everthing together and install once.

The radio on my ex's '06 stopped working recently as well. It simply needed another fuse. Not sure why the original fuse blew, but the replacement hasn't failed yet and it's been a few weeks.

Thanks for the info but my owners manual shows one fuse for the radio remote morrors and one other thing, all other items work that are connected to the same fuse.

GG1 ... you most likely have at least two fuses ... you can find the radio type by checking the service parts sticker ... this should be on drivers-side, rear passenger door jamb.

The sticker will have many RPO numbers and you can compare with the following from the 2005 service manual (the 2006 should be similar) to determine which, or how many, of the options your Vue was delivered with.

The following shows the entertainment regular production options (RPOs) that are available for this vehicle:
 (UM7) AM/FM Stereo
 (U1C) AM/FM Stereo CD
 (US8) AM/FM Stereo, CD, MP3, RDS, EQ
 (US9) AM/FM Stereo, 6-Disc CD, MP3, RDS, EQ
 (UXQ4) Base Four Speaker
 (U79) Uplevel Four Speaker
 (WBM) Premium Audio
 (U2K) Digital Radio

Once we know the radio type we can find a wiring diagram (and number of fuses).

If you buy from crutchfield, and indicate vehicle at time of purchase, you will get a kit with instructions for your vehicle.
