2008 Saturn Vue Hybrid P0A92 Error Code - anyone have experience with this?
 
My recently purchased, used Vue had the engine and battery lights come on while driving on the Interstate. I also noticed that the charge/discharge gauge was not moving at all. By the time I made it home the "Service Hybrid System" message had come on. I parked it and it died. Would not restart. I plugged in a code reader and got the code P0A92. I looked it up and it refers to a "Hybrid Generator Performance" problem.

Does anyone have any experience with this type of situation, or with this error code? I am dreading having to get it towed to a GM dealer and facing a major expense for repair.

Thanks in advance for any replies.

Welcome to the forum. Please stop by the New Member section and introduce yourself.

I do not have a hybrid, nor will I ever.
But from searching, seems like it means your transaxel/transmission is faulty and about to go out.
At least every post I read ended up with needed to replace the transmission.

Thanks for the opinion. I appreciate the reply. I don't know a lot about this particular fault myself, but from talking to someone familiar with servicing Hybrids, I was led to believe that a more likely cause is the electronic module that controls Hybrid battery charging, a current sensor or a battery imbalance. And that sounded fairly reasonable I guess. Transmission never came up in the discussion. When the problem is resolved I will post the details on what was done.

I read most people have the issue after putting a new battery in. Not before. It comes up as a drivetrain code.

And the cause of your code was...... (?)
