    Would you mind reposting the schematic diagrams? The link has
    expired. This diagram is not in the manual that I can find. I used to
    have a repair book...can't put my fingers on it. I need to replace the
    red 10 amp fuse for the back up lights but don't know which one it is...

    Wow,, it didnt look that confusing when I cut and pasted it from the factory manual.

    Now that I think of it, might want to make sure all fuses are securly pushed in and that the large connectors at the back of the panel are securly fastened. They are held in place by a 7mm bolt at their center. Try removing each connector and inserting it a few times.

I need a fuse box diagram for a Saturn SL2 1999 so i can pull a fuse out

When you take the lid off the fuse panel under the hood, the diagram is on the underside of the lid. When you take the velcro panel off the inside fuse panel next to the passenger's left knee, the diagram is on the back of the panel.

In trying to move a 1993 sl2 saturn that had been sitting for a while, the engine started but then when the car was placed in drive, a fuse blew and now nothing works. Where is this fuse located and are...

There are two fuse boxes in these cars one behind a plastic plate down by the passengers feet and one under the hood. Which fuse blew? What is your reasoning for believing you blew a fuse? Were there any issues with the car leading up to this even?

Help! I have 98 Saturn SL2 that was live one minute dead the next

Sounds exactly like my 1999 SL2 which had "burning and arching" in the fuse box. Car one day be fine the next I'd take it to the store, come back in 10 minutes and wouldn't start, no radio, no power windows, no keyless entry remote, no rear defrost and even locking doors from inside power buttons it sounded odd. This fixed the problem by replacing the fuse box.

First, check with the key on to see if you have power to the pump, if no power then we'll look elsewhere, Some solutions could be a faulty pump Or Inertia switch, but that does not match with having to tap the fuse box to start it, Also, remove the fuel pump relay and with the key on test for power to the relay, this can be done with a simple test light.
