The battery light (left hand side) on my dashboard lit up less than 24 hours ago.  while I was driving home, all the lights started to come on and then dimming.  Then the car began to just "die" then eventually did.

Check belt(s) first then put voltmeter on battery and record voltage while running if you can, even if you have to jump it to get it going. take time to read owners manual & locate any fuses that may be associated with alternator circuits, most likely in power distribution box under hood, and check for one blown. Do you have a 12v test light by chance?

    No test light, then you'll have to visually inspect fuses for break. Your map under cover or in manual should guide you to proper, logical fuses, if not get back to us. Pay special attention to ones that are labelled "alt"., or "pwr" ."ign".

I have a 2001 L100 seires Saturn and My service light and the security light both are on and the car wont start. the battery seems to be fine all the lights work i left it alone for a while and it started...


No, the fuel gauge not working wouldn't have anything to do with your not starting problem , probably the gauge is bad . With the SECURITY light lit , anti-theft system problem ! Service light ????? Service engine soon ? Or service vehicle ? With the light's on code's DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes are stored . Have it checked , don't guess as to what the problem is. This would prevent the buying of un needed parts .

Try a day time running light modual,these things are notorious for messing up,and since they are supposed to work when the car is charging it seems like the logical solution.

Intermittently have to use charger to start.


the most common cause of this by far is lights left on by defective switchs, these include the map lights in the visors, the glove box light due to a defective switch, the trunk light and the hood light if equipped, check it at night and look for a faint glow, the other much less common cause is the alternator has a defective diode and allows a small current to pass to ground drawing the battery down..
