Open the hood. You will notice there is a large black box on the right-hand side directly behind the battery. This black box is the fuse box. Pull the top of the fuse box off. There are two clips on either side; once you pop one side, the other comes off very easily. In the top left-hand side of the fuse box where all the fuses sit, you will see a large orange/red block. Below this block is a button that says "reset." Press this button for 5 seconds. Turn the car on and wait for a minute. If the light does not go on, turn off the car and set the key to ACC on the key ring. Push the reset button again, holding it for a total of 15 seconds. Turn the key to off, take out the key, return the key and start the car again. Allow the car to run for 2 full minutes. It is taking the system a few minutes to register that this button has been pressed.

If you are asking how to reset the light after a repair:

If there is a continueing problem which enables the service light, fix that problem first. If you have a code scanner, plug in the scanner with the ignition in "ON" position, then plug in and remove the scanner 3-5 times. If you don't have a scanner, remove the negative battery cable for about 30 seconds.

Remember: If there is a valid error code, the light will keep coming back on.

The CEL (Check Engine Light) will not go out until you hook up a OBD II scanner to your vehicle and erase the code. If it comes back again after you erase it than either the original problem still exists or you have a new problem. You can go to your local AutoZone store and they can hook up a scanner and erase your code for free.

SOURCE: 2003 saturn vue. replaced spark plugs and the

Did you use the recommended plugs or did you use a new style like E-3 or Bosch +4 or something similar. Sometimes using a plug other than the original type can cause problems. Check and make sure all the wires or plug connections to the plugs are secure. Check to see if a spark plug has a cracked insulator. If you used antiseize on the threads make sure none of it got on the spark plug electrode or it will missfire.

Hope these ideas help.

SOURCE: 2003 saturn vue service engine light on, how to

you will need a code tester to be hooked up to the aldl link normally located under the instrument panel, close to steering wheel, and the code tester reads codes that the computer has picked up, evidently something has been recognized by the computer for the light to come on, you need to find out what the trouble code is and fix the problem, also code tester can remove the light from being on. auto part stores can test your saturn with a code tester. and if the problem has already been repaired, and you want the light off, auto part stores tester will remove it. hope that this information has been helpful.

How do i reset the oil light on a 03 saturn vue? i did the turn the key and press the gas peddle 3 times and that didn't work.


The procedure you used is for the 2006 > Vue, and will not work on your 2003. For the 2002-2005 Saturn Vue V4 or V6 - Under the hood you will see a black fuse box behind the battery. Open it up and you will see a red button, it is small and looks like a fuse but on the top it will say Oil-Res. Turn on the ignition & press and hold that button for about 10 seconds. You may want to have a friend sit in the driver's seat and watch for the indicator to start flashing, which indicates you've activated the reset. Turn off the ignition and that will reset the Oil light.

I have a 2003 saturn vue 6 cylinder. my service engine soon light came on and my friend had a diagnostic tool and checked my computer and this code showed up, my friend reset it. it came back on after 12...


From the looks of it this is a very common problem with the 2002-2003 saturn vue. There was a Technical Service Bulletin from saturn about the problem, which means it happens alot but not quite enough to warrant a recall.

You need to replace your thermostat and it is a pain to do, the dealership will charge you about 2 hours flat rate to put it in.

Its not a huge deal to get it replaced right away, but the computer depends on the vehicle being a certain temperature and if it isn't then your performance/emissions will suffer.
