Question about 2002 Saturn L-Series

I have a 2003 Saturn L-100 that won't turn over. Ran fine earlier in the day and doesn't seem to be the battery because lights come on when we try to start it.

SOURCE: 2001 Saturn SC2 Electrical issue

I had the same problem in a 1997 SC2.  Turns out that finicky/broken door lock/unlock switches were causing an intermittent short.
I removed the 20A fuses to these locks in the switch panel under the radio.  Problem fixed.

SOURCE: 1994 saturn starts intermittently

Saturn Ion's have a problem with the starter switch in the steering column. The security feature built into the key is a small resistor. When the key is inserted, the engine computer 'reads' the resistance and accepts the key as valid. The problem is that the pin that the key contacts is gummed up INSIDE the ignition switch. A new switch will fix the problem but Saturn won't cover the replacement though they have issued a tech bulltein on the problem.

The other fix that I did based on an Internet search is to cut the small 24 ga white wire coming from the ignition switch WHILE THE CAR IS RUNNING. The engine computer defaults to the run mode and will no longer look for the key verification. The small key symbol remains lit on the dash but the car starts everytime. Small price to pay. The real answer is that Saturn should replace or discount the repair due to HEAVY grease in the switch the gums up over time. Under 40 degrees, the connection is lost to the computer.

SOURCE: service engine soon light, service light, reduce power etc.

It is most likely the Throttle Position Sensor has gone bad. But if the check engine light is on, the only way to tell exact problem, is to have a scanner placed on the vehicle to have the codes read.

A wrench symbol is the equivalent to a check engine light. Take your car into a mechanic and let them diagnose the error code the engine light is storing to help diagnose the problem.

SOURCE: My 2003 Saturn Ion remote trunk release won't

Check to make sure the button on the trunk latch is turned from manual unlock...they made that feature so only the key will work to open the trunk that way if someone breaks in the front of your car they can't hit the trunk release and get into the trunk...may be the same thing for your remote. Hope that helps.
