Saturn Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi my name is bob
is your car a six cylinder
you are going to have your car taken the the dealership to have the computer scaned for code
we have seen alot of issues with the wireless throttle control
you may have a problem with the accelerator postion sensors or throttle body or engine wiring harness
this is a costly repair
so are you saying it's not drivable?
it may reset afetr shutting off
what is the price range for this type of service?
it goes into reduced power to car the car from running out of control like the toyota situation that made the new in past years
so when you say reset itself what does that mean
a throttle body just for the part
that doesn't include labor

I'll be honest I have worked on saturns for 19 years, and i'm sorry to say this particular car has problems sorry
how many mile on the car

the light comes on after the computer detects a problem th let you know there is a problem
