Question about 1999 Saturn SL
I have a new battery and starter on my 99 sl1 all the connections are good on battery and starter i believe the fuse are good too
You may need a shim between your starter and the block. Most starters are ok, but some need shims so that the teeth on starter line up with teeth on flywheel. Starter is probably jammed

You might want to try using an amp wiring kit. I'm not sure what the specs are on those things, but I imagine they put a huge draw on your power supply so it might not be a bad idea to use the amplifier fuse block (usually 80-90 amps) and the heavy gauge wiring to make sure it runs at maximum capacity. Also, the sudden draw on your car's electrical system will rob a lot of power, so you might want to do some research into using a car audio capacitor to minimize the drain. I looked into doing one of these too, and this was the general consensus from several people.

SOURCE: 98 saturn sl1 won't start
If the problem occurs after the car has been driven long enough to reach normal operating temperature, the problem is the starter. If the 'no crank' occurs cold, retest the battery.

The fan may run with jumper wires but if it''s blowing the 30 Amp Maxifuse it's needs a new or used fan motor.It's pulling too many amps.I have almost never seen a fan relay concern.Only other thing you may check is the wiring down near the fan shoud I have seen the 2 wires get loose from the conduit & melt onto exhaust manifold.Hope tHis Helps

Sounds like you have short to ground somewhere, I would check the wires near the horn itself and if they are ok check the clock spring.

Testimonial: "This poses a problem. What is a clockspring, where is it located, and how do you fix the problem?"
