The a/c works when I turn the fan switch to position 1&2 but when I turn the fan to position 3 or 4 (high) I hear the compressor kick off and the a/c button light goes off.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I switched the A/C relay under the dash around with a different relay but it still does the same thing. I also checked the fuses.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
If the blower motor is pulling to many amps could this cause the a/c to shut off?

Here are the steps to diagnose 0646 https://www.dropbox.com/s/wd054hdhipeieks/0646.pdf?dl=0

Monitor the signal using a volt/ohm meter on the AC request line from the HVAC at the light green wire connector 1 pin 10. If the signal changes based on blower speed then the HVAC is to blame. If the same signal is still being sent regardless of blower speed then do the diag steps above.

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5 star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris

Your is very vague. I diagnose the problem myself. I found out that it was the blower motor resistor. I replaced it and it works fine now. How can I get a refund for the stupid site?
Saturn Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Saturn Technician replied 7 months ago

Use the contact us link. Sorry I misunderstood, I thought the AC was shutting off, not the blower motor. Plus the resistor can not store the code you have.

The AC was shutting off when I turn the blower motor to the third and fourth position
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
The blower motor continues blowing but the AC shut off
Saturn Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Saturn Technician replied 7 months ago

Glad you got it resolved with a new blower resistor.

Transmission intermittently slips. Here's all the info: 2007
2007 Saturn Vue 2.2 liter 3 weeks ago - Transmission was slipping after around 150 miles in the heat of Vegas. and because it is a sealed unit, it's very difficult to check the level… I put additional fluid in and it stopped the slipping temporarily. I did this 3 or 4 times. Each time it fixed the slipping. Transmission shop said you have a leak and for $150 we will fix. I decided to dump all the fluid out and found there was an extra 3 quarts overfill. dah There were no metal particles in the fluid but it was dark brown. Did not smell. Mechanic (and me) recycled tranny fluid when it was changed so the filter is possibly dirty. Still had similar problems so I replaced with NEW fluid in transmission and suddenly it worked with no problems… for maybe 2 weeks or 500+ miles. As of today… Today I got a false sensor level warning light (Not supposed to be related) on the radiator fluid level. This has happened many times before and then followed by the slipping transmission. (?) I thought the engine was overheating or the transmission cooler had stopped working. Flushed and replaced the radiator fluid. 2 weeks ago. NOW a few hours ago. Warning light, then transmission slipping but then it went away (the slipping) Transmission has 200,000 miles. If I change the fluid AND FILTER, could it be useable for another 200,000? Is there a pump, solenoid or something that sticks inside the transmission that could be at fault? The current filter ran with old fluid in it for 1,000miles. Now there is new fluid. dah What about the computer? … read more
