SOURCE: possible bad alternator?

I went through three alternators before we found a good one for our saturn sl2. Now she has been good for two years. All I did was go back to where we bought it from, they hooked up the alternator to a machine and gave us a new one when it read that it was faulty.

SOURCE: battery not charging light comes on. new battery

I don't know what kink of car you have, but some will have a alternator fuse, also with a volt meter check voltage on big wire at back of alternator should have 13.5 + volt's, then check voltage at battery should have same voltage there also, do this with car running, if you do not have same voltage at battery less short between alternator and battery or bad fuse. There also some fuse links at starter on some car's.

My 2007 saturn sky brake lights stay on and cruise doesnt work

The brake light switch, located on the brake padal assembly, is and input to the cruise control module. When the switch fails keeping the lights on is makes the cruise control module think you are applying the brakes when infact you are not. Chek the switch wiring for damage and if ok replace the switch making sure you adjust it properly.

Reset tire pressure monitor on 08 sky turbo

you cannot do it yourself,either contact a gm dealer or possibly a tire store-there is a little hand held remote that you have to set up against each individual tire to recalibrate the sensors

2008 Saturn Sky Redline - starting issues. If I

I have the same problem, found that when it rains heavy or I wash the Saturn Sky; water runs down over the computer under the hood on the driverside. There is a drain port just above the computer so water runs down through the drain port onto the computer wiring shorting out this computer, when the wiring dries out the electrical problems are fixed. but the water can do damage to the computer which comtrols the radio and many other electronics inthe Saturn Sky. I know this because this happened to me. after washing my Sky all the electronics went crazy, found the water on my computer wiring. after a couple of times of the wiring shorting out the radio started comming on by its self while the car was shut off causing the battery to die over night. What a crazy place to put a drain port over top of a computer and its wiring. A cover needs to be made and placed over the top of the computer to prevent this from happening again. If you are having a problem getting GM to fix the problem; wash the car using a garden hose and let alot of water run down over the window on the driverside so the water can run down the water port under the hood onto the computer and wiring, this should create the same problem then take it back to the GM dealer and show them the water problem. They can then refuse to correct the problem. Good Luck. O yes one other problem you need to know about, if you don't have mud flaps on the front wheels the paint will chip real bad on the rear lower quater pannels and it will cost you a good dollar to have it repainted.

Need to replace the altenator on a 2001 saturn sl1 1.9 liter twin cam

1)Remove serpentine belt from above with 14 mm wrench on spring
loaded idler pulley.
2)Disconnected battery
3)jack up car and remove passenger front wheel
4)it helps to also remove the wheel well splash panel also for better
5)crawl under car and remove battery and other connectors from the
alternator. then remove lower attachment bolts (I think there are 2
below to deal with-one is for a support bar, and one is an alternator
attachment bolt)
6)go back up to top of car and remove upper attachment bolt (this one
is a little hard to get to)
7)pull alternator out and have a alternator shop repair bad rectifier
board and any other items that need attention.
8)reinstall repaired alternator
9)leave splash cover off to provide additional cooling to the
alternator area. put wheel back on and lower car.
10) install new serpentine belt from above and reconnect battery.

If you have the time you could get the newer improved alternator from
6th planet. It has shields to improve the heat disipation.

Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

2008 satura aura

The Saturn Aura introduced a new bolt pattern for Saturn (and GM), 5-110. The SKY is the only other Saturn with this pattern. If you look to the extended family, the Chevrolet Malibu (2004-up), Pontiac G6, Saab 9-3 (current generation), Pontiac Solstice, Chevrolet Cobalt, Pontiac G5 and Chevrolet HHR use this pattern as well. There is also a very large selection of aftermarket 5-110 bolt pattern wheels.
