Question about 1999 Saturn SL
Headlights and radio work yet car won't start. Replaced battery december 2008 with die hard gold battery and still same problem. turn key and nothing. banged starter and car started. starter replaced in july 2007. do i need another starter? pretty sure not my alternator; roadside service said alternator okay.
I have a 98 Saturn SL1 from time to time it would not start, it wouldn't even try. I knew the battery was good. It turned out to be the cranshaft position sensor.

If you have good battery voltage at this time, and when you banged on the starter and then the car cranked over, it would appear you have a defective starter. i would imagine if you replaced it in july of last year that it could still be under some sort of warranty, so i would look into that. either way, it sounds as if you need a new starter.

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.
