    I just started having the same problem- please help. The ticking sound comes on when I take the key out of the ignition( sometimes) more often now shortly after the car will not start without a jump. Soon as it is jumped it is fine. But if it sits for a while it does the same thing.

93 saturn sc2, if airbag light comes on, won't start back up


Have you spilled anything onto the center console? Your air bag computer (SIR module) is under the center console as well as another module called the QDM you could have some corrosion build up on the connectors of those modules. You will have to remove the center console to see them. Other than that I am thinking possible ignition switch problem. Ignition switches can cause funky problems that crop up in multiple electrical systems.

Starting / Cranking is a problem: With key ignition, turn; there's a slient buzz noise. Head lights and dash board lights come on, however it doesn't respond to crank. Weak response is battery sometimes...


This could be a battery thats bad and doesnt have enough voltage or the starter is bad, easy to figure out, have the battery tested if its bad then replace it but if it tests good then i would replace the starter and also have the charging system checked to make sure the alternater is charging the battery up. hope this is helpful.

Jaguar xJ6 X300 The electric seat has stopped working . I can hear the two relays clicking on the left hand side of the driver chair so assume the fuse is ok . Any ideas on how to fix it .?


the motors stick ( freeze ) i have heard that disconect the battery for an hour helps with this,and you may need to reprogram everything after..

Open the boot lid and drivers door, and switch on the ignition. Rock the valet switch, in the centre console, 5 times. The system will chirp to indicate it has entered learning mode.

On models with seat/mirror/steering wheel memory functions, the first remote will be linked to memory 1, second to memory 2 etc.

Press the larger, lock, button of the remote. The system will chirp to confirm it has got the signal. If it doesn't receive any signals for 15 seconds, it will chirp twice and exit learn mode.

To programme further remotes, rock the valet switch once. The system will chirp twice for remote number two, three times for number three etc, then press the lock button of the remote as above.

When finish, wait 15 seconds for the system to time out and chirp twice, turn off the ignition, close the doors and boot lid and the job is done!

1998 Saturn SW2, 180,000+ miles. Recent starting problem.


It does sound like an electrical issue.  Double check if the ground connections are all OK.  You may have to check out the wirings, even the wiring loom if all wires are still OK.

1994 saturn starts intermittently


Saturn Ion's have a problem with the starter switch in the steering column. The security feature built into the key is a small resistor. When the key is inserted, the engine computer 'reads' the resistance and accepts the key as valid. The problem is that the pin that the key contacts is gummed up INSIDE the ignition switch. A new switch will fix the problem but Saturn won't cover the replacement though they have issued a tech bulltein on the problem.

The other fix that I did based on an Internet search is to cut the small 24 ga white wire coming from the ignition switch WHILE THE CAR IS RUNNING. The engine computer defaults to the run mode and will no longer look for the key verification. The small key symbol remains lit on the dash but the car starts everytime. Small price to pay. The real answer is that Saturn should replace or discount the repair due to HEAVY grease in the switch the gums up over time. Under 40 degrees, the connection is lost to the computer.
