I have a 2008 Saturn Vue XE, yesterday I want to leave work and it would not crank. Everything had power inside(lights, radio, AC, etc.) but it would not turn over

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

. A friend gave me a jump start but still
nothing. The battery isn't even a month old
and it runs great. I left my car overnight and
came back in the morning and my car will
now crank. Any idea what this could be?

Try removing battery terminals and clean then try jumping again if vehicle does not start right away leave cables on for about a minute before trying to start this will help charge your battery and leave vehicle that is jumping your vehicle idling.


Take a look at the crank sensor...


could be neutral safety switch if it is an automatic put the car in neutral with foot on break and see if it cranks


It cranks now. I did nothing but let it sit over night. Could it be the starter?

maybe but if it does it next time try just moving the shiftier a little or moving it to the neutral position see if it cranks


Okay, I will. Thanks!


Okay, just left to try and crank my car again, same thing as yesterday nothing. I moved it to neutral and still nothing. Any other suggestions?


Do not think its the starter but a loose connection going to starter.


maybe a starter if you have some one that knows about cars that can help have them hit the side of the starter with a hammer as you turn the key if it turns over then starter for sure


Ok thanks


did you find your problem on your car
