driver's seat heat
Replace heated seat switch due to the fact that the
light or LED shorted and would not illuminate.
Replace Daytime running lights resister as it failed causing DRL to become inoperative.
Heated seat not working. Nothing was done
Warning alarm goes off - ABS light comes on. Sometimes all instruments go dead while driving and power steering fails. Vehicle still drivable. Odometer still lit but not updating. Odometer updates to reflect milage travelled. Display problem only. Daytime running lights failed to come on automatically. Saturn has a special warranty for this. A resistor near the front-right bumpler needed to be replaced. After last repair, vehicle was OK for about two weeks before problem resurfaced. Problem has always been intermittant and does not produce specific codes other than "loss of communication" (with the body control module) This time, they re-seated connector
It has been two months since my last trip to the dealership to deal with the dashboard going dead. The problem has not been repeated, so it appears that re-seating the connectors for the Body Control Module was sufficient.
