Question about 1993 Saturn SC2

1 Answer

97 saturn SC2, it acts like it wants to start

I replaced the fuel filter, it trys to start. while probing the fuel pump fuse, i switched the ignition on, no light, then i turned the engine over, the light came on, i released the switch and the light stayed on for a second. is this the way it's supposed to work? usually when you turn the ignition on, the pump comes on for a couple secs, ( most cars ). i put my ear to the tank while someone else turned the engine over, i never heard the pump.

Where is the fuel relay switch on a 2002 saturn L series


You have a fuse / relay box under your hood. My 2002 L100 special edition, 4 cylinder, is located near the battery. You have a relay and a fuse in series. A fuel pump operations check, section 4-3 of the Haynes Saturn L-series 2000 to 2004 manual, you can hear a soft whirring sound for 1 to 2 seconds when you turn the ignition to the ON position. I can confirm mine makes this sound when I do this. Good luck with the fix.

Note, I had a crack in my fuel pump, but I took it to an ex-Saturn dealer 4 or 5 years ago because I did not want to mess with it at the time. They had the part and fixed it in 4 hours, but it also cost me $1000 to replace the fuel pump and install a new fuel filter.

11. Trans axle Codes present


Saturn Sc1, Sc2, SL1, SL2 Automatic Transmission codes when turning right after a reset or when hitting third gear. Intermittant dash lights dead, fuel pump failure and check engine light says various codes having to do with car starting in gear. Mine had a bad ignition switch which burned up the wires connected to the automatic transmission start satety switch. On the back of the transmission a black plastic device connected to the shifter cable. You must remove the black plastic shield from the upper wire to see if the wires inside are burned on the top connector that has six wires. If they are get a junkyard replacement connector and wires. Replace the ignition switch first to avoid same problem.

Hesitation


Don't start with the pump, start with the fuel filter. Do U have any service stations that offer free code checking or go to a Murry's Auto Parts store that U can get a scan tool. U just put the deposit on a credit card and when U bring the tool back they remove the transaction, so its free.

Hope that helps U some

2001 Saturn SC2 Electrical issue


I had the same problem in a 1997 SC2.  Turns out that finicky/broken door lock/unlock switches were causing an intermittent short.
I removed the 20A fuses to these locks in the switch panel under the radio.  Problem fixed.

97 saturn sc2


I had the same problem with a 97 sc2. The fix for my car was the temp sensor that controls the extra fuel when engine is cold it didn't sense that the engine was warmed up and added extra fuel flooding the engine.
