why dont you open the hood and look for it???

most likely under the hood in a lil electrical panel on same side as battery

my first thought would be the squealing serpentine belt or could be brake pads. Combining squeal and stall from stopped position maybe you have a bearing going out on something the serpentine belt runs on. example if belt tensioner or A/C clutch bearing going bad could cause drag on serpentine belt. If a bearing is going bad you may be able to hear it under the hood.

for the fan the motor resistor would be a possible cause, but the heat itself doesnt come up to temp? That wouldnt be a fan problem.

Check the fuse panel inside the vehicle (usually located on the lower left side of the steering column in dashboard) and the relays and fuses located in the protective box under the hood. If all of those check out my next guess is that moisture has somehow gotten onto a circuit in the locking system and is causing it to short out.

The primary fuel pump is located in the left side of the tank. If you fill the tank up and it still does not start then it is the primary tank. Problem is that now you will have to drop the tank with a full tank of gas. The primary pump is used to pump the fuel to the fuel rail, while the secondary pump is used to pump fuel from the right side of the tank to the left side. I usually replace both primary and secondary so I don't have to pull the tank again if the secondary is also bad.

Are you sure you have a fuel pump problem? What are your symptoms?

Not sure if these photos got downloaded ...
evaporative emission (evap) control system description-cvjuxsiseyzasthfudxedcrj-3-2.jpg evaporative emission (evap) control system description-1-cvjuxsiseyzasthfudxedcrj-3-5.jpg evaporative emission (evap) control system description-2-cvjuxsiseyzasthfudxedcrj-3-9.jpg It would have helped to have the P04XX code for your issue. Your code analysis indicates a wide spectrum of possibilities .... not just the purge solenoid near the engine.
There are web references to various Saturn EVAP issues .. not always pointing to the same root cause.
Troubleshooting these are not always easy since numerous things can fail to throw the OBDII code.
Good luck!

Any code's stored ? Need to have a full vehicle scan done .

the abs system is a safety feature that is government regulated. very unlikely you will find a way to shut it off or bypass it.

It sounds as though the transmission has an issue. It could be a sensor, but at that age, the transmission itself is well overdue for some kind of trouble.

Did you scan for codes? If there are codes pull them out
provide me with them and I'll try to diagnosis this. This could be anything. The shifter may be defective the transmission range sensor aka manual shift valve may be defective. When your in first is it slipping?

Maybe the heater core is plugged or perhaps you have an air pocket in the cooling system. Try and bleed the cooling system once more.

What system does it have ? Base or up level ,does it have a amp ? Do you know what a RPO code is ? Without testing no one could say for sure what the issue is . First off would need to know what system we are dealing with .
RPO Options
The entertainment system on this vehicle is configured with either a base or uplevel audio system. Both the base and uplevel audio systems contain a radio, antenna, and speakers.
The following shows the Enteratinment RPOs that are available for this vehicle:
• (UM7) AM/FM Stereo
• (U1C) AM/FM Stereo CD
• (US8) AM/FM Stereo, CD, MP3, RDS, EQ
• (US9) AM/FM Stereo, 6-Disc CD, MP3, RDS, EQ
• (UXQ4) Base Four Speaker
• (U79) Uplevel Four Speaker
• (WBM) Premium Audio
• (U2K) Digital Radio

Circuit Operation
Radio Power: The main radio power is supplied by the 10A RADIO (BATT1) fuse in the body control module (BCM). Radio switch-on power, 12 volts in ACC, RUN or RAP, is supplied by the 10A RADIO (ACC.) in the BCM.
Radio Grounds: The main radio ground provides a ground for the radio circuits. An additional braided ground strap provides a shielding radio case ground to reduce EMI noise. Both grounds are connected together inside the radio.
Radio Speaker Outputs: At zero volume, the plus (+) and minus (-) speaker outputs are both approximately 5-6 volts, measured to vehicle ground. If a plus or minus for any speaker output is shorted to ground or voltage, the radio circuitry will turn OFF all 4 speaker outputs for component protection. Above zero volume, the plus and minus change to create a voltage difference between each other, to drive the voice coil of the speaker.
Radio Park Lamp Input: The radio park lamp input allows the radio to sense when the vehicle parking lamps are ON. When the parking lamps are ON, this circuit goes to battery voltage, and the radio display back-lighting switches from full bright to the brightness level determined by the I/P illumination input.
Radio I/P Illumination Input: A pulse width modulated (PWM) voltage for instrument panel (I/P) illumination is provided to the radio I/P illumination input. The Radio uses this input to directly illuminate the radio buttons and adjust the radio display back-lighting when the park lamp input is ON.
Amplifier Power: The main amplifier power is provided by the 20A PREM AUDIO fuse in the instrument panel fuse block..
Amplifier Radio Speaker Inputs (WBM only): The radio speaker outputs, at a reduced output level for amplified systems, are the amplifier inputs. The amplifier boosts these inputs and outputs them to the vehicle speakers. Speaker plus and minus circuits from the radio change to create a voltage difference between each other. If one speaker plus or minus is open between the radio and the amplifier, the input to the amplifier is approximately half because only one of the circuits is changing. The speaker for that channel then operates at approximately only half the normal volume.
Amplifier Speaker Outputs (WBM only): At zero volume, the plus (+) and minus (-) speaker outputs are both approximately 5-6 volts, measured to vehicle ground. If a plus or minus for any speaker output is shorted to ground or voltage, the amplifier circuitry will turn OFF either the front outputs or rear outputs for component protection. Above zero volume, the plus and minus change to create a voltage difference between each other, to drive the voice coil of the speaker.
Amplifier Radio-On (WBM only): When the radio is ON, this circuit is pulled to 12 volts by the radio. The amplifier switches ON when this circuit is 12 volts and switches OFF when this signal is 0 volts.
Remote Radio Audio Signal Inputs (UE1 only): Audio output from the OnStar® communications module connects to the remote audio signal inputs of the radio. When the cellular telephone mute signal goes to 0 volts, the radio over-rides any other audio signal and uses these inputs as the source for output to the speakers.
Cellular Telephone Mute (UE1 only): The OnStar® communications module uses the cellular telephone mute signal circuit to over-ride the radio for OnStar® communication. When cellular telephone mute is not active, this circuit is held at 2 volts by the radio. When the cellular telephone mute signal is pulled to ground, the radio over-rides any other audio signal and uses the remote audio signals as the source for output to the speakers. If the radio was OFF when this circuit is pulled low, the radio will turn ON. Additionally, the radio fades the speakers to full front, adjusts the volume to an initial audible level, and sets an AutoTone designed for optimal use with OnStar®. When the mute signal is no longer pulled to ground, the radio returns to the mode it was in previously.

Hooking up a professional or factory scan tool that can read radio codes would be one of the first test's to do .
DTC B1025, B1035, B1045, or B1055 (w/out RPO WBM)
DTC B1025, B1035, B1045, or B1055 (w/ RPO WBM)
DTC B1030, B1040, B1050, or B1060 (w/ out RPO WBM)
DTC B1030, B1040, B1050, or B1060 (w/ RPO WBM)
DTC B1259
The following conditions are present for 250 ms or longer:
B1025 - B1055 01
One of the speaker positive output circuits is shorted to battery.
B1025 - B1055 02
The speaker positive output circuit is shorted to ground.
B1025 - B1055 04
The speaker positive output circuit is open.

Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop .
