2002 saturn l300 doesnt want to start I want to know if anybody knows where to start looking for the problem besides the fuse box. It has a brand new battery.

If it won't start, it is very likely either fuel or spark is lost at the engine. Is the engine getting gas to it from the gas tank? Do you hear the fuel pump turn on for 2 seconds with the key in on, not start? This 2 second period is to put pressure in the line and to the fuel injectors.

If gas is getting up to the engine, next check for spark. Buy a cheap spark tester, hook it to a spark plug wire and crank the engine over. If ignition system is good, you will see a blue, snapping spark on all of the spark plug wires. If you have spark, next check the fuel injector circuit. Post back if you need help with that.

If you have no spark, aha! your ignition system has failed. Now you really do need to check all your fuses before proceeding. Most common failure with no spark is an ignition coil, a bad ignition control module, or a bad crank position sensor. Many other possibilities, but those are the most common.

I put the key in and it wont turn its frozen.

I had the same problem, turned out it was worn ignition switch tumbler pins. Try turning the key while tapping on top of the switch with a rubber mallet or sneaker. If it frees up, you need to remove the keyswitch and take it to a locksmith to have the pins replaced. Much cheaper than a new ignition switch.

For a while my 95 buick lesabre would start and cut off on me mid drive; hot, cold, full speed to not fast at all. now the car wont start. i have changed the starter, altinator, bat, plugs and wires,...

Just because you hear the fuel pump running doesn't mean the fuel pressure is correct, put a fuel pressure gauge on the car, 41-47 PSI (Pounds per Square Inch)Position the ignition switch and the A/C system in theoff position. Install a fuel pressure gauge to the vehicles fuel rail or fuel pressure test port.Confirm that no leaks are present, and visually verify the PSI reading on the gauge with the ignition in the on position.

Replace the rear wiper arm shaft

There is a plastic cover that pops off at the pivot end of the wiper arm. pulling up on this with a hook of some kind from the furthest end should release it. Under it you will find a nut that holds the wiper arm to the shaft. It's quite common for the nut to come loose and the shaft spins without moving the arm. Try tightening this nut (with the ignition on, be sure the wiper motor is off, then turn off ignition and put the wiper arm in the parked position). This is a common problem if you've ever tried to turn on the wiper when it was frozen to the glass.
