It sounds like there is somthing wrong with the window regulatior ( the motor in the door that moves the window)
1.Remove the inner door pannel (all parts)
2. hook up the window controls & try moving window up or down, make sure window is moving propley in tracks and siscor arms are not bound up.
3.If all is well with the above stuff, just replace the window regulatior and test befor you reasembil the door pannel

Need to locate the starter location for a 1999 saturn sl2

It's on the backside of the motor if you stand on the drivers side and look down on the back side of the motor you can just see it the best way to get at it is put the car up on jack stands get under the car it's in the middle of the back of the motor.
Good luck

How do i adjust the window wipers so they sit higher. I cant find the bolt to loosen them. Is it in the dash? 1999 Saturn sl2

If it is still there lift the plastic cap off the nut at the base of each arm. Remove the nut and pull the wiper arm up and off the splined shaft. May require a bit of rocking but do not pry on the glass. Put some masking tape on the glass along the top edge of the blade before pulling them off. That way you will know where they were. Put the arms back on, but set them higher on the tape, tighten the nuts, replace the covers and you are done. I use a bit of loctite on those nuts when I put them back on. The arms should not run off the driver window side at the top of their arc. You know before you even do this find a similar Saturn in a parking lot and take a cell phone picture of its wipers, make sure your arms look like those. Often times people put them on backwards, or get a wrong replacement, the arms are different for each side.

My 1997 SL2 saturn driver window won't roll down. it's electric and it doesn't make any noise. what do i need to do to fix it?

get a new power window regulator for 90 bucks on ebay, pay a glass shop to install it. it is an electric motor and did 10 years service, you can afford to replace it every decade. i have replaced 3 on a 99SW so consider yourself lucky.

I have a 1999 Saturn SL2. The window on the driver side will not go up. At first I thought it was the buttons on the little piece between the seats that make the windows go up and down. I found out it...

63 year old lady go over to ebay and buy a new driver's door regulator, this is almost exactly 100 dollars with shipping. then call a local auto glass shop and make an appointment for them to install it, tell them you already have your own new regulator. I have had several of these put in 5 saturns over the years and never paid over 60 bucks labor. a glass shop will have the tools and fasteners on hand. stay the heck away from dealers on this.

My 1999 Saturn SL2 started theother day but a few

This is probably a faulty fuel pressure regulator. You can rent a tool at most auto part stores that connects to the fuel rail to show you the pressure level. If it is low (less than @40 PSI) or if it fluctuates very much, replace the regulator. It is also a good idea to replace the fuel filter, as it can clog and prevent adequate fuel supply from reaching the engine. You may want to replace the filter first, as it is usually cheaper.
