Question about 1999 Saturn SL

1997 Saturn Having a power issue

Saurn has approx. 48000 miles. Drove approx. 200 miles and then it wouldn't start. Had it towed, got to the mechanic and it started just fine. He couldn't find anything wrong but I had wanted him to servic my transmission as it had sat for quite awhile before I bought it.
After I picked it up from the mechanic it did the same routine again. Ran fine, shut if off and then it wouldn't start. A mechanic tested it and said that it was the fuel pump (said it wasn't pressurized and it was replaced). Now it doesn't have any power at all. What is the problem

The vehicle speed sensor (VSS) is located in the differential area of the transaxle. Also, to replace it should be fairly simple. I wish I could give a better answer exactly where it is at, but I have you the answer straight out of the Haynes manual. 

To replace the VSS, disconnect the electrical connector from the VSS. Then remove the retaining bolt and lift the VSS from the Transaxle or simply unscrew the VSS. Installation is the reverse of removal.

Single click? More battery is needed. Id change the battery, or slow charge it.
Might also be the security system shutting down the starter. Common on GM vehicles. Heres a link on that. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

Had to replace fuel pump in 2006 Saturn Ion... it's only THREE!


i just had the same issue . . .I have been having starting problems with my car (2006 Saturn Ion) and smelling gasoline. It turns out the hose connected to the fuel pump was cracked and leaking gas. The mechanic said that this is a safety issue and should be recalled. He feels that the one hose is not connected and harnessed properly and the vibration to the hose eventually caused the crack. I googled "Saturn 2006 Ion fuel leak" and several other people have had the same issue. What is also the major problem here is that the hose is configured with the fuel pump itself. So, the entire mechanism had to be replaced. It cost me 700.00 for a cracked hose because the fuel pump had to be replaced and my car only is 46,000 miles. This is a major safety issue. I drove for 2 weeks with a car that was leaking fuel. Saturn must know about this and is waiting for the same situtation to happen, but for the car to blow up instead. PLEASE IF YOU ARE READING THIS CAUSE YOU HAVE THE SAME ISSUE . . . . contact the office of defects and the NHTSA . . .This is a saftey issue and a recall needs to be in affect . . .

1997 saturn sl did some errands, then wouldn't re-start


If it wouldn't start, you have to see if you are missing fuel or fire. Could be a bad sensor, or a bad fuel pump, or if the security light is blinking, a problem with the security system.

Change your fuel filter, it may have gone it's life time and is getting to dirty to let fuel flow properly. Your fuel pump to may be getting weak, if the fuel filter is dirty the pump works harder and heats up and could be over heating the fuel pump relay too. The fuel pump relay i believe is in the glove box behind a panel that say relay, there should be (3) in there and the middle one is the fuel pump's. switch then around after you change the fuel filter and if you get a chance, check your fuel pressure at the shredder valve. Good luck and hope this help's if there is a Auto Zone around you, you can ask to use the fuel pressure gauge to see what fuel pressure you have and they'll have the step by step instructions on how to do it and takes about 5 min to do and will have the fuel filter and step by step to replace that too. Keep me posted, be glad to help.
