So I have a Saturn ls2 2000 every time I put a 10amp fuse in blinker it blows already changed the blinker multiswitch

Wire is shorted somewhere in the turn signal circuit. Start at the bulb and trace backwards looking for a break in a wire or a pinched wire. These problems are difficult to find and take a lot of time....
Good Luck.
Also. DO NOT TRY A FUSE LARGER THAN 10 AMP unless you want a toasted car...

I have a 2000 Saturn LS2 that has flashing dash lights, i.e. warning lights, etc., when I start car. All the dash lights flicker and the gauges drop to zero. What is wrong?

same problem here as well. I'm going to try and replace the ignition cylinder. Does yours start? Mine starts, but can't get out of park unless I move key to run (put in neutral) and start again, Issue dash is going crazy and running light are flickering. I noticed yesterday that the turn signal lever is hot, so it might be some short in the steering column

I have a 2000 Saturn ls2 that will not go into park. Can you tell me why? Every other gear works fine.

You probably have a linkage problem that needs to be addressed. For now, start your car in neutral, and instead of park use neutral and set the parking brake. Also turn your wheels toward the curb if you park on a hill just in case the parking brake fails

doesn't sound like transmission fluid in my experience if transmission fluid is low your gears will slip or not work at all, sound to me your spark plugs or bad gas or something in that order.

Can you tell me where the timing belt is on my 2000 Saturn LS2? Our car has been having problems with starting where it takes about 15-25 minutes for it to start. It will turn over but not start. It has...

This vehicle has a timing chain. It is located behind sepentine/alternator belt. Behind there is the timing cover which needs to be removed to inspect timing chain. I would suspect a bad fuel pump or crank sensor or ignition control module. These compenents fail the most at my shop.

My saturn 2000 ls2 will turn over but it won't start. I checked the air and fuel filters and the fuel pump is working.

check that you have signal at the crankshaft sensor,also check for spark at the spark plugs.

Will not turn over 2000 saturn ls2 battery, fuses, and relays checked good

As long as you KNOW the starter is good, it might be a sensor that makes sure that your car is in park. Could also be your ignition cylinder (what you put your key in to start the car).

My 2000 saturn ls2 has a P0206 code. Cylinder 6

Misfiring could be a number of things, but since the V6 has the coil right over the plugs it narrows it down a bit. I would first replacing the spark plugs (and MAKE SURE you gap them correctly). Use platinum. It will be a super pain in the **** to get to because you have to remove the entire intake manifold (the top part of the engine). That's a good place to start.

Put a can of seafoam in your gas tank too. That should clean out your fuel system. You can pick that up at most any autoparts store. I think walmart might have it too.
