I have a user in a SharePoint created group which has 'limited' permissions on a site, but contribute permissions on a list in that site. When the user tries to save an item he receives the error:

Access denied. You do not have permission to perform this action or access this resource.

  • Turns out the issue was related to the Override List Behaviors permission. The list had the Create items and edit items that were created by the user restriction. – MickB Oct 21 '15 at 18:22

Depending on the action, list permissions are dependent on site level permissions. In order to save a list item, the user has to at least have the View Pages, View Items, and Open permissions at the site level. So the group that user is a part of would need to have those granted.
