Question about 1997 Saturn SL
Drove to Grocery store, went to leave and car wouldn't start.
Tried to get a jump but still would not start. Got towed home.
All lights, turn signal work. Makes no noise when key is turned.
Prior to this problem -- Had Ignition replaced and Had a Viper alarm system installed. Would it be a problem with either of these or could it be the alternator? Or an electrical short?
I would start with checking out the alarm system if it has an immobilizer with it as well as an alarm, if there is no immobiliser with the alarm then I would check the ignition, I would also check that the starter is working properley and not binding. also check your fuses, under the hood there should be a fuse box with large fuses in it and some relays, it is quite possible that one of these fuses or relays has quit, for the starting system, I hope that this helps.
