Question about 2001 Saturn L-Series

1 Answer

From alive to dead in 5 minutes 2001 Saturn L-series

I got out, turned the engine off, to use an ATM. When I tried to start the car it would not turn over, no clicking, no radio, no headlights, no display lights, just the reading lights and door locks operated. I jump started the car, drove home, everything seemed fine. I turned the car off and now it won't start again. No power to any systems. Help!

When you turn the key you hear a single click and you can not hear the starter cranking the engine over? After several attempts the starter finally cranks the engine over?

If so sounds like the starter is going bad.

Just stopped while driving now wont start or even turn over


Try turning the engine from the crank. Thats the big nut on the bottom of the engine with the v belt around it. If it does not turn you probably have a seized engine.

How to replace a crank center sensor on a 2001 saturn sl2 My car used to start but for some reason it didn't charge my battery and now it won't even start. Thanks.


In order for the battery to charge, the alternator has to be good and keep the battery charged. If the car has been sitting, the battery is most likely dead, and you may be able to jump start it, but even if it starts, the alternator will need to be changed. When you say "it won't start" do you mean the engine will turn over but not start or it won't turn over at all?

2002 Saturn S-series Passlock needs to be reset


Try this first, it takes about 30 min to do. 30-Minute Learn Procedure 1. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF. 2. Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON; the vehicle will not start. 3. Observe the SECURITY tell tale light. After approximately 10 minutes, the light will turn OFF. 4. Turn OFF the ignition switch, and wait 5 seconds. 5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 - two more times - for a total of 3 cycles of 10 minutes. 3x10 = 30 minutes. The vehicle is now ready to relearn the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or passwords on the next ignition switch turn from OFF to CRANK Important: Turn the Ignition Switch OFF. The vehicle learns the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle. 6. Start the engine. The vehicle has now learned the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password. 7. With a scan tool, clear any DTCs if needed. History DTCs will self clear after 100 ignition cycles. Without a scan tool you may have momentary starter interruptions while history clears itself. Good luck and hope this helps, keep me posted, be glad to help
