Saturn Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, my name is Bobby. Thank you for the question. Can you tell me how the vehicle is actually running besides the light being on?
Thank you. Can you give me the year and model of your Saturn?
Thank you. From what you are explaining and from the code you are getting it sounds like the battery pack is getting too hot. Typically this means that the hybrid battery is what needs to be replaced and not the motor.
Typically that entails replacing the hybrid battery, which needs to be done by a hybrid certified mechanic. Most dealerships are going to charge about $5000 to do this. You can sometimes find independent shops that can do this with a refurbished battery for maybe $2500-3000.
On a battery, whether it is a hybrid battery or a standard battery, age causes the battery to fail. The mileage does not have anything to do with it. Unfortunately by now it is out of warranty due to the years on the vehicle.
