if the shifter is moving then it is probably your trans. but if the shifter is not moving from the park possition (if it is an automatic) check to see if brake lights are coming on if not check fuse for brake lights,it also controls your shift lock.try turning key to possition before lights come on dash board and moving shifter into nuetral pos. then start car and put into gear give that a try, if it does the shift lock isn`t working.
Is this an Automatic transmission? If it is, and what is happening is that when you turn the key the starter will not engage, then you play with the shifter nob, and then it will start, then it is the
NUETRAL SAFETY SWITCH.
This is there to ensure that you cannot start the car in a gear, and will only start in either Park, or Nuetral. They go bad, just like anything else. Try starting the car with the gear-shifter in the NUETRAL position. I bet it will start.
Where the switch is located on this car, I am not sure, but it is not an expensive fix.
Sounds like to me you may need to have the nuetral safety switch adjusted or replaced. This switch will allow a vehicle to start only if the gear shifter is in the park or nuetral position if it starts in any other gear it may need to be adjusted or replaced hope this helps you.
When my 2001 L200 did this it was the body control module. There is a button under the shifter boot that will allow you to put the car in gear. It did not effect the engine so you can drive it but it will do all kind of weird things with the lights, door locks, and gauges.
You need to find an authorized Saturn repair center or a good Chevy dealer. Some independents can fix it as well.
Get into the vehicle and close door.Turn key on then engine off,move gear shifter to nuetral, the air suspension compressor should then turn on, put back into park then get out of vehicle with key still on and close the door. Compressor will turn off while door is open but wil start back up after door is closed. Now you can walk around the vehicle and listen for a leak. You can use a soapy water solution to pinpoint it.
