Trouble Codes for a 2007 Saturn

Save

Many car owners’ first experience with onboard diagnostic codes tends to be when the “check engine” light comes on. Saturn owners are no exception to this trend, and it becomes an introductory experience to car computer codes as mechanics translate the data into causes of the problem.

Generic Codes Versus Saturn Codes

  • Every post-2005 car has two sets of onboard diagnostic codes. Generic codes signal basic car problems and there also are brand-specific codes. Saturn trouble codes have their own specific nomenclature to set them apart from general scan readings.

Retrieval Method

  • A mechanic and car owner can retrieve Saturn codes. The process involves simply buying an OBDII car scanner and inserting it into the scanner receptacle underneath the steering wheel. The car then is turned to the “On” position without starting the engine. The data will feed automatically into the scanner, which interprets and displays the meanings.

Saturn-Specific Codes

  • Saturn codes are interpreted best by either referring to a Saturn code manual or looking them up on the Internet. The specific codes are not sequential in nature. While they cover a range from P1032 to P1895, not every P-number is associated with Saturn.
