Question about 1993 Saturn SL2
I have a 1993 Saturn SL2 and a couple months ago it just stopped working.
When I turn the ignition, the car won't start at all, nothing happens. I got the battery tested, and it was dead, so I purchased a new batter, but when I installed it, the car wouldn't start. It's a manual transmission, so I push started it, and it started. When it started, the car alarm (I was not even aware I had one) started to chirp, and the electrical (Indicator lights, radio, etc) started flashing and shorting.
So I turned off the car, and turned the key. To my surprise, it started up just fine. So I doubt it's a problem with the starter. I was told it might be the aftermarket car alarm shorting and stopping the car from starting, but I am not 100% sure. Any suggestions would be very appreciated. Thanks.
Hello there ThreeD, Johnny
I wonder if we had the same dealership? If you are still having the start up problem, I have several solutions.
To Disable the Starter Kill:
( Tools: flashlight, wire stripper, Jumper wire w/alligator clips)
Let me know the results. If necessary we will take it to the next level.hanks for using FixYa

Sounds like the alarm might be the problem if it has a kill switch installed so it wont start. best thing to do is find the alarm box, check it to make sure it didn't get wet or any of the wires are not pinched. i would disconect the alarm. any wires that go into it. and try from there. if not let me know and i will look into it more
