The starter is near the engine engage in the flywheel and if there is auto zone near you they can print you out a diagram for free and if there is a library need you you can get all of the information you need to repair your car these are a something i would check the alternator drive belt and the safety switch on the top of the clutch

My car won't start even after av changed the starter


are the cables and battery posts ok! jump start to see if you get enough power to turn starter over. if it starts, then it may be a bad battery. if car is running and at battery you should have at least 13.6 to 14.2 if alternator is ok. another test is to have car off, turn on headlights with meter on battery posts, if the voltage drops way down. its the battery thats bad. good-day !

My '99 saturn sl won't start. the battery has a charge, and the alternator is good, but it won't turn over.


Hi Vernon, There could be a number of different reasons why your vehicle is failing to start. The battery voltage could be dropping during start and become unable to engage the starter motor to turn the engine. You can check this by trying the key with the head lights switched on. If the lights become very dim, you'll need to check the battery, meaning clean the terminals and then try to start with a jump from another battery. If you achieve start up and it fails again the following morning, you will probably need to replace the battery. There could be a problem with the starter relay or a loose contact for the starter motor, most lik3ely the one connecting to the soliniod. It would be good to know some additional information, such as does a clicking sound come from the starter when engaged? Is there a perceptible drop in voltage output when the starter is engaged? does the enine turn at all? Try what I've suggested and if that does not solve the problem answer the questions and let me know anything else which you may think is relevant. Regards John

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/

1993 lumina sedan wont start pror to going dead that day lady said it was hard to start. thinking its a bad battery car wont start with a jump has power for radio and dime lights doesnt even click when key...


first of all. check voltage at battery with engine off. it should be at least 12.6 volts or better,less then 12 volts battery is bad. when running if alternator is ok. it should read at least 14.1 to 14.7 with accesories off. if less than 14 volts alternator is bad. make sure battery posts and cable clamps are clean and tight. also check the cable to starter for corrosion. if all is ok, then the starter or solinoid is bad. check fuses first !

1997 Saturn SC2 won't start; not even when jump started. New battery, alternator load tested fine; starter was replaced eight months ago without any issues-don't think anything was wrong with it...


Auto or manual? If its auto try puting it in neutral and try starting. If manual than try pushing the clutch all the way to the floor. There is a switch on thr pedal that when pressed it enganges the starter.

Check the starting circuit. Start at the battery. Load test it (or have the auto parts store do it...most perform this test for free). If that is ok, check the wires to the starter solenoid. Look for loose connections, bolts, and/or corrosion. If you have power there, and it will not crank, It should be your starter or solenoid. It will be sold to you rebuilt or new and will come complete as one unit as the solenoid is integral to the starter. Make sure you do not have an alarm that is armed. I think that is a non issue on this particular year. My best guess is that the starter needs a replacement and that you should service the connections from thje battery to the starter and be back on the road.

My 1993 Saturn SL2 will start and run ok until it warms up. After that the idle will be close to stall and there is a distint lack of power. The check engine light does not come on.


Have the battery checked, how long has it been since you changed the fuel filter? It is rec. every 2 years. Have you changed the spark plug wires recently? you could have two wires backwards.

check your fuses, and intake valve, and also get a battery test. I believe those are free.
