In most newer cars the starter fuse is a fusible link or in a fuse panel under the hood. Fusible links are often difficult to find because they look like a barely noticeable bump in the wire. The starter relay/solenoid is typically an assembly that is part of the starter motor.
Im assuming the car does start
If not and there is no power at the engine compartment power distribution box then the fuse link near the starter is vliwn power travels from the battery to the starter to the alternator to the power distribution box that is if your saturn is an sl2
Check for a fusible link going either to the starter or inside the car on drivers side by fuse box they are usually found by either a little round black piece on. Them that looks like a fuse or a larger wire that has a smaller wire on the end of it I can tell you for sure most fusible links on Chevy's are brown anecdotes he go to the starter the older Chevys anyhow
there is one fusebox under the hood in the engine compartment next to the battery and then theres one inside the car in the center of console, heres a diagram to help you locate the inside fuse box and also the fuse locations, the underhood fusebox will have a label with fuse locations on the cover. good day.
sounds like a bad, burnt wire, or a blown fusible link. It runs on starter fluid or gas put in the air system, but the fuel pump, (electric) is not working. These types of problems can be hell to track down. Fusible links can appear good, but be bad. At any rate, its not any of the fuses inside the vehicle, it's either one under the hood in that box or a fusible link or bad wire somewhere under the hood. Basically your whole electrical system is out, so I would check main leads. Does the battery stay up even tho it's just setting? If it stays up, is not a dead short. Good luck, fixing it will be easy, but finding it a real pain.
there is no such thing as a fusible relay, there are relays and they are located inside the car some under the dash on driverside and some on the pass/side and then there are relays under the hood in engine compartment inside the fuse/relay box, this acar also has a fusible link or two, this is like a peice of wire but inside the wire will blow like a fuse and the only way to test is with a test light you would need to see if power runs the lengh of that link wire, these are located by the battery and then in the fuse /relay box and on the starter sometimes, the ones in the fusebox under the hood may also be metal type, heres a few picture to show you a few types of fusible links,
First check your positive battery cable. I have seen, especially on the Saturn, where the positive cable gets corroded through the cable and will not allow any power through it. Also check all fuses in the fuse box under the hood, especially the large green 30 amp fuses. If that does not help then check the fusible link between the starter and the alternator. I have seem some of those fail, but usually the car still had power.

The problem may be caused by the starter relay, fuse, or fusible link. The fuse is easy enough to check.
You can check the fusible link. Sometimes they get corroded or melt and break the circuit.
The starter relay is most likely the problem. Since you did not give a model year. I can only guestthe location of the relay.
Look under the hood on the drivers side, right above the wheel well. Look for a black box. the relays are inside.
If not you can give your model year.
