Left rear ABS wire harness short due to corrosion, ABS brake system fails to operate and dash warning lights come on saying traction control and ABS brake system warning /failed. Dealer service tech. Said he has seen a lot of this problem on this type/model auto.. he removed about 6 inch to 1 ft of wire were it was showing green from corrosion.. he also said he solder new wire slice in and put shrink tape over the repaired wire harness. Have repair order if you like to see it.

The contact owns 2008 Saturn Vue. The contact stated that the ABS light illuminated. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who stated that the ebap solenoid was corroded and the harness body wiring shorted out due to corrosion. The manufacturer was contacted who did not offer any assistance. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure and current mileage was 50,000.

I bought this car April 23, and the following week I began to have problems. At 200 miles the check engine light came on. I took it to the dealer and they said it was the evap canister. But I was also experiencing problems with the automatic transmission trying to switch gears. The vehicle would hesitate when I pressed down on the gas and then it would redline and kick in to the next gear. But it would not stay constant. The vehicle would abruptly downshift on flat ground and on slight grades. The dealership said the problem was fixed, but as I drove off it happened again. I ended up having to schedule another appt for them to look at the vehicle. Then when they looked at it again they said the computer system in the vehicle wasn't working correctly so they said they fixed it. Well when I drove off about 25 miles down the road the problem occurred again. When I try to slow down the brake pedal would go to the floor. I have almost been in a few accidents because of this. The problem occurred at 30mph-60mph. It also rolls back when in the drive way or at a slight incline at a stop sign/light. This vehicle is not safe. Im schedule for another appt. Once again to try and resolve the problem.
