Hello. my name is...

Hello. my name is ***** ***** am a duel master mechanic with 42 years experiance. i am in a remote place in new brunswick canada and have no good schematics. i have a saturn vue 2006 4 cyl. with no power to one of the orange termanalat th ign. switch. before i tear the whole dash out do you have a PROPER wiring diagram

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?

Constant and if i jump it the blower starts working and the starter then works all fuses good both boxes

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your VUE yourself? What have you tried so far?

Let me explain. there are two orange wires going into the switch"new" and the one above the yellow and then above the orange wire should be hot . it is not. i need wiring logic for that wire. i bought a manual on line and then its not there.

Phone call session started

It won't take long at all. I am uploading them now. I see you have requested a phone call. Let me send you the schematics first then let me know if you want me to call. The call is an additional $26.

my sister says she had a rat get in her car in north carolina. i guess i have to start digging.

It looks like it's a straight shot from the fuse to the switch. I'd look for a bad wire or run a new one. You can simply jump from terminal H over to A.

do you know were the splice is?

Looks like it's right at the fuse box.

Ask Your Own Car Question

You could just splice it over at the ignition switch rather than tearing the car apart.
