Question about 2000 Saturn SL
You should try re-learning the pass-lock system first. Turn the key to the on position and leave it on for 10 min, or until the security light goes out. Turn the key off for at least 30 sec. Turn the key back on, very important not to turn too far and bump the starter, for another 10 minute cycle. Do this 3 times for a total of 30 min. After the 3rd cycle it should start.

Worked like a charm... so far :S. I am already ~$400 in on a new cylinder that didn't last more than 12 hours (car didn't start the very next morning).
I was getting ready to "cut the white wire"......when I came across this post. I will set a calendar reminder to report back here in month. So in summary, my car didn't start before trying this process and now it does :) thanks and I'll let you all know how it goes.

SOURCE: I have a Saturn L200.
I'm experiencing the same things with my '03 l200. My mechanic replaced the fuel pump about 3 times before finally telling me it was the body control module. It will cost me about $260. On top of the problems you mentioned, my car also doesn't register miles in the odometer, and the dashboard lights flicker. He said all this was because of the faulty body control module.

the problem is not the bcm. the passlock security sensor is in the cylinder and housing, if the cyl and or housing was replaced the system must be relearned. if you replace the bcm you still need to relearn the system or it still will not start.
