Listen under the hood next to fuse box for a cliking sound when ignition is turned. If you do not hear this click you many need a starter relay.

Can't find the starter on my 1998 saturn sw1, need diagram


find the battery, just under the battery is a large bell shaped contraption between the engine and the transmission, it is called the bell housing oddly enough. the starter bolts into the bell housing on the back side of the engine. it is under the intake manifold and is a ***** to get to. buy a rebuilt starter and take it to a shop which has a lift and lots of extensions and universals in their socket sets. behind the starter in the engine block is a crank sensor, while your starter is out have the guy replace the crank sensor, another common saturn fault.

1998 1.9l dohc sw2 car will start when cold but not when hot starts fine after it cools down


When the vehicle is hot, does the Starter turn the engine over? If not, your starter is being affected by Heat soak, and you must replace the starter. If the starter does turn over the engine, you have a sensor that is failing due to heat soak, or your ECM is failing when hot. This is much more difficult to diagnose since each sensor will have to be monitored to find the faulty sensor.

I have a 98 saturn sw. Replaced the alternator, there's a wire, thick looks like it goes to the starter? Didn't take this wire off, don't know where it goes. possibly called the B wire. Alternator reading...


There is a heavy red wire that connects to the only terminal on the back of the alternator. The starter should have a smaller purple wire connected to the starter solenoid. A red (positive) battery cable connects to the top terminal of the starter solenoid. There also may be smaller red wires connected to the solenoid at the same connection where the heavy red battery cable connects. Hope this helps

98 saturn sl1 won't start


If the problem occurs after the car has been driven long enough to reach normal operating temperature, the problem is the starter. If the 'no crank' occurs cold, retest the battery.
