Search didn't bring good answer.

Yesterday moved from '04 V-6 Vue to '08 I-4 Vue. Owners manual has good write up on TOAD towing, but nothing on fuse.

Is there the same fuse to pull in the '08 as I had to pull in the '04?

Sorry to say this, but I would appreciate an accurate answer.

thanks,

We have been told to pull the ign fuse that is located in the fuse box on the passenger side of the car in front of the little net holder that is by the shift. It is a little 2amp fuse it is labeled just look at the cover. There are a couple threads about this on RV.net

From what I have heard, the electrical system on the 4 cylinder version is different than the V6, so am not surprised that the dinghy towing set-up is different. I would not assume the same fuse is pulled on the new one. Best to check with the dealer or direct with Saturn if you are in doubt about the instructions in the owner manual.

We have the V6 XR version. The dealerships can't even agree on what to do.

Colleen and I reviewed the 2008 Saturn Vue XE Owner's Manual and there isn't a thing in there about pulling a fuse. On the 04 I had to pull the BCM Cluster fuse but when you pull that fuse on the 08 XE - nothing happens.

Still trying to figure this thing out. If you guys have something new to add regarding "which fuse" that would be helpful. So far is looks like no fuses.

Thanks in advance.....

Just finished up installing my SMI Stay-In-Play DUO. The operating unit is under the hood! Look ma! Nothing on the floor or under the seat!

We have over 3500 miles at this point and the 08 Vue is a lot of fun. We're enjoying it. I have gotten all but used to the Ecotec I-4 from the Honda V-6 we had in the 04. We don't miss the V-6 at all.

According to the car magazines, the 08 is a completely different vehicle from earlier Vues (built on a different platform)and the I4 has a different electrical system than the V6, so comparisons to each other and to previous Vues probably is meaningless. But it seems strange that you can't get a straight answer from Saturn, since they have always been active supporters of the 4-down towing mode and had the answers ready (even for the few models where the answer was "no).

I assume you have asked the dealer to contact his dealer support tech line - that's how they get the latest and best info?

I just want to share as this time that as of a couple of hours ago I pulled the Vue in Neutral with the key in ACCY and that was it. It worked fine.

Saturn recommended pulling a 2A fuse located inside in the passenger well fuse panel. The fuse is marked, 2A IGN SW.

If you flip over and are looking at the fuse locations on the access cover, the fuse is located:

<LI> Locate the fuse puller on the diagram.
<LI> The fuse is exactly at the 2 o'clock position from the fuse puller location.
<LI> It's in between the BCM(VB7)15A and the Air Bag 10A fuse.

When the fuse is pulled and the ignition key is in the "ACCY" position, the lamps on the IP are dead.

Now next project - get me a switch in there to keep from having to socket and unsocket the 2A fuse.

I was thinking that I had to pull a fuse inside the main fuse panel under the hood but -- NOT!

Yesterday I pulled the car for about a 1/2 hour -- didn't pull any fuses. No problem.
