If the 2000 Saturn SL2 is the same as the '99 SL2, then your tail lights bulb is the same bulb as your break light bulb. Now they are dual bulbs, just like your head lights. So just the same way that your brights can work, but your headlight lamp be out, or vice versa, is the same with your break lights. So replace both bulbs and you should be good to go. I just had to replace both mine, one was a tail light out, and the other's break light was out, either way, same bulb. Also, check your manual for the light, or take the light out when you go in to get new ones. I found that for some reason there is some confusion on the bulb in this make in model.

Could be the linkage hanging up for sure.
Have it checked by a pro ASAP.
Although it's kinda easy to replace, its easy to go wrong if you don't know what you are doing and safety should always come first.

How can I fix my turn singles on a 1999 saturn sl2

Hi, More detail please. if signal (blinkers) are working you will hear a clicking sound. If blinkers are blinking faster than normal the lights (right or left)(front or rear) needs to be checked out. (burned out bulbs). Replace it.

take the cover off the tail light lens and look at the bulb if there are broken filaments or burned spots there bad you can also check to see if your getting power to the plugs for the bulbs with a 12volt test light or meter.

1.9 motor runs at 2000 rpm at stop in drive 2000 Saturn Sl2

Sounds like your timing is off. Could be your timing belt is off or your distributor is off.
Both are tricky to work on. Might even be one of the fly wheels are out off sink.
If your lucky and it's the distributor all you need to do is start the car, loosen the bolts just a little,
enough to turn it, than turn it by hand .But DON"T turn it to much.
You can use your ear to hear the difference when turning. Only need to turn it a fraction of an inch at a time to hear the difference.
Hope this help and good luck.

Fuse is the cheapest solution, I'd start there. Then perhaps light bulbs and/or relays.

Need wiring color code for a 2000 saturn SL2 for hooking up a trailer light four pin connector

The trailer wires are left turn, right turn, running lights(the smaller elements on both tail-lights and any side lights) and ground. Energise the corresponding lights and connect the wires accordingly. Find a good ground. A piercing test probe will find the correct wire for you if you can't track it to the bulb.

When in gear at stop light etc, acting like it's going to stall out, when stopping and putting from drive to park it races, have replaced 3 sensors, same problem, could it be the coil packs?

Hey i had a problem that sounded like the one some might have. Here it was a short in my tail light that would make the car die if i had the break pressed while in drive. then i fixed it but also found that there is this male type connector in the trunk on the drivers side that if it grounded somehow to the chassie it would produce the same thing. i have a 93 sl2 not sure why this would cause the problem or even what it is. Hope this helps so check for any shorts ///
