2000 Saturn SL2 - replaced ignition then BCM failed. Related?

I have a 2000 Saturn SL2. Just had the ignition replaced because key was stuck. Mechanic said it was hard to get out. Following that repair, it will only run for ~2 secs when started, then it dies. Now I'm told I need a new body control module. Can replacing the ignition and ignition housing damage the BCM? Is there a wire that may have been cut during the ignition repair, or anything else damaged in the steering column that could cause the BCM failure?

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.

How do I remove and clean an EGR valve for a 2000 Saturn SL1?

I'm told that I need to replace it's ignition control module and two associated coils as well. Is this easy to do? I'm not sure what the coils are but the control module is way less than half online to buy direct than through my mechanic (300+).

My car keys are stuck in the ignition system. (1994 Saturn). Can't turn it in or pull it out. Any ideas?


search on youtube for "saturn lock cylinder replacement". if you think you can do it, buy a generic lock cylinder at advance or autozone and give it a shot. if it works your ignition keys will not match your door and trunk keys but a dealer will charge you more than the value of the car to put in a new saturn lock cylinder.

Need to bypass the passlock system on my 2001 saturn sl2


well easiest way is to tape the old key near the ignition

without key you need to essentially re wire the ignition and under the hood arround the computer controlls and power supply

Put some pressure on the steering wheel in one direction or the other this may take the pressure off the cylinder itself and allow you to do what is needed...hope this works.

You put the key into the lock cylinder, the lock cylinder is directly attached to the ignition switch. Both are inside the plastic boot around steering column.

I have a Saturn L200. The car will start for about 2 sec. and then dies. I've put a new battery in and fuel injector cleaner. I started for a little bit yesterday, however it won't start now. The fuel pump...


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.
