In some cases, the car may not shift at all. When I unlock the door in the morning, it works fine. Relay is a possibility; should swap with a known good one to check. In general, a shop cannot just hook up an analyzer to any car and diagnose any electrical problem. That could lead to the vehicles rolling when drivers think they are in park.
Operate all functions on transmitters to verify correct system operation. Vehicle Details The Aura's interior is defined by the attractive styling, quality materials and overall sense of refinement that have begun permeating the passenger cabins of more and more domestic entries. The Detroit automaker said Friday it is recalling 426,240 Chevrolet, Pontiac and Saturn sedans in the United States to repair a condition in which the transmission gear position may not match the gear on the shifter. The rest are at dealerships. Also, I wonder if I need to do something to stop the water leaking in from outside when it rains to make this not happen again. Not sayin this is the fix but is a place to start. Concern is in a accident, you may not be able to exit car.

Did yours just suddenly quit cold turkey? Maybe that's it causing electrical problem. The contact stated that the recall repair of the electrical system caused other parts of the vehicle to fail. While driving approximately 35 mph, all four doors on the vehicle unlocked without warning. Didn't know you just push it down again all the way and it springs back up.
Like pushing my parking brake down, I couldn't find the lever to release it. Everything in the cluster works fine but the light that illuminate the numbers showing your speed goes out so you cannot see your speed. During the installation of window tinting film, Please protect the door lock and window switches to ensure that excess water from the installation process does not enter the switches. Another point: the door lock actuators have a high failure rate so I'd be tempted to start there. Not sure what they did something with replacing the ground for the door. The contact owns a 2008 Saturn Aura. Could this be something I can do myself? Open and close the doors several times to make sure.
We use the car with fairly minimal locking and unlocking of the doors likely averaging a few times a day. Rate the quality of this post and help laklive reputation points. Some of the owners who complained about G6 brake light problems also said the cruise control may not engage or will disengage unintentionally. You can try stuffing a small piece of plastic, say trash bag or sandwich baggie without the zip-seal in-between the drip rail or body and the seal. However, this may not work depending on how power door lock circuits are wired. People getting together to help each other out. The manufacturer was not notified of the issue.
Got out, would not close, so I pushed it shut and locked with remote, is stayed latched, then I tried to get back in, using the remote, the lock inside the door popped up like it had unlocked, but the door would not open. The driver's window switch is somewhat independent of the others. After seeing the diagram, it doesn't look very complex at all. The passenger cabin remained notably quiet on the highway, and the Aura handled twisty two-lane roads better than most midsize sedans this comfortable. As a general rule, you can't return electrical parts.
I traded in a Saturn that I loved on this Saturn. Hey there SaturnAndy, Just chiming in! Same thing goes with my passenger windows. I might keep the car another year or 2, it has 102K miles on it so maybe door switch would last until then without repairing water leak. Someone please chime in on whether the system will work with one switch removed. They get weaker over a time period of months.
These repairs will be performed at no charge. Click the reputation button near the bottom left corner of this message box. The part and installing it aren't expensive, but the diagnostics will cost some. The driver may not be able to restart the vehicle and the vehicle could roll away after the driver has exited the vehicle, resulting in a possible crash without prior warning. I haven't tried to take the doors apart on this car.
Bulletin 14116 covers model year 2004-2006 Chevrolet Malibu and Malibu Maxx, 2005-2006 Pontiac G6 and 2008-2009 Chevrolet Malibu, Pontiac G6 and Saturn Aura built from March 1, 2008, through June 27, 2008. It will set some codes when you unplug the switch, after you turn the ignition on. This is a safety concern and I think Saturn needs to fix as I have seen other complaints for the same issue!!!! The Aura's multi-panel panoramic glass sunroof consists of a front panel that angles up as a deflector and three others that retract and stack at the rear. I'm hoping that replacing the actuator will also fix the windows but I'm afraid that I might have two separate problems. They said that the door lock motors have failed. I suspect you have two separate issues but answer me this: Typically door lock actuators fail intermittently.
How long have you had the car? I notice a drop of water every few minutes coming in from the seal of driver's side door where the seal meets the roofline. Also, the switch is not that expensive in case I need to buy one and maybe do the job myself. Standard safety equipment includes electronic traction control plus front, front-side and side-curtain airbags. Depending on the seal, you should be able to pull it down just enough to poke some plastic behind it. In some cases, the shift lever and the transmission gear's position may not match, meaning a driver could move the shifter to the park position but the transmission gear may not be in park. This is now the second time this has happened.
