Question about 1997 Saturn SL
I have a 97 saturn sl2 with three problems, they may or may not be connected.
1)my car sits in the garage for weeks at a time, lately when I go to start it the battery is completely dead
2) when I turn the key off after it has been running the chime starts as soon as the key is in the off position and wont stop until its removed.
3)the car used to chirp when locked with the fob, now it locks but no chirp
Thanks for your help Gerred.
I ended up taking the car into the dealer last week and they found a "broken switch" in the drivers door. This was causing a very slight drain on the battery that over time would drain it, it also made the car think the drivers door was open, this explains the constant chime as well as the horn not honking when using the remote to lock the doors.
The total bill was about $110.00 including the labor and switch. Not to painfull I thought.

I had something similar to this and found that all it was was the copper plate on the ground lead to the battery was caked with corosion...
