Question about 2000 Saturn SL

2 Answers

WEIRD PROBLEM I have a 2000 Saturn Sl1 that was running fine and then it would not start. The lights in the car come on and so does the radio. The head lights do not come on. While I have the key turned to where the lights and radio come on, when I push my brake everything turns off, and when I release the brake everything turns back on. I have charged the battery and it still will not start. Is this an electrical problem, the starter, alternator?

On my girlfriends sl1 the engine would not turn over at all and I took the starter off and it was fried! I replaced it and it started right away, but I never had a problem with the lights not coming on.

MY SATURN 2002 SL1 WILL NOT START. MY BATTERY IS FINE BECAUSE ALL LIGHTS AND RADIO WORKS BUT WHEN I TRY TO START IT, IT MAKES A CLICKING SOUND.


A quick check, is turn your headlights on, try to start, if lights dim almost to off, bad battery, if they don't dim, it's a bad starter assembly.

SL1 wont start sometimes


Sounds stupid, but could be bad battery conection. The car gets enough amperage to run the acceseries but not enough amperage to start the car. Clean and tighten the terminals. It cost nothing and will eliminate these connections as the cause if the problem persits.

Have the alternator and battery checked. The battery may not be holding a charge. The alternator may not be charging the battery,it should put out between 14 and 15 volts,any less the alternator is bad.

Saturn 2000 SL1 - 4 cylinder - won't start - we have changed the crank shaft positioner and car still does not start. There is no power to start the fuel pump. Fuel pump checks out good. Fuel pump not...


Try pulling the engine coolant temp sensor, They often crack not sure why but the ceramic tip cracks makes the car hard to start, or won't start, the car's idle may race while shifting gears, and often smokes. The sensor is on the right side of the engine when looking at it on the head. Easy to change and get too
