Customer Question

2004 saturn vue works in first and reverse will not shift out to next gear

Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** you for visiting the site.


Do you know if there are any trouble codes for the trans.?

Check engine light on?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
do not know about codes or where to look not sure about light
Expert:  Jerry replied 1 year ago.

The light would be on the dash board that says, "Check engine". The trans appears to be in a limp mode. Most times if you unhook the battery for 15 minutes or so it may clear the memory and make it drive able for a time, until the code(s) are set again.


Normally Autozone and other parts stores will read the codes for free.

When we know the code(s) then we will have a better understanding as to what the cause may be. Thanks
