Question about 1997 Saturn SC

Connection to fuel pump relay

I have a 1997 saturn sc2 1.9 16vlv dohc 5 speed. the connection to the fuel pump relay is messed up. sometimes it gets a connection and sometimes it doesn't. you can her it clicking and if you lay your finger on top of the relay when it is trying to turn over you can feel the clicks. i have had many ppl look at it and spent money trying to figure out where it is coming from... the bad connection. it's not the fuel pump itself, because we push start it (advantages of having a standard) and it runs just fine. we have been puzzled over this for sometime. it's just once in a while. we thought maybe a short, but can't seem to find a short with a tester???

Where is the fuel relay switch on a 2002 saturn L series


You have a fuse / relay box under your hood. My 2002 L100 special edition, 4 cylinder, is located near the battery. You have a relay and a fuse in series. A fuel pump operations check, section 4-3 of the Haynes Saturn L-series 2000 to 2004 manual, you can hear a soft whirring sound for 1 to 2 seconds when you turn the ignition to the ON position. I can confirm mine makes this sound when I do this. Good luck with the fix.

Note, I had a crack in my fuel pump, but I took it to an ex-Saturn dealer 4 or 5 years ago because I did not want to mess with it at the time. They had the part and fixed it in 4 hours, but it also cost me $1000 to replace the fuel pump and install a new fuel filter.

Fuel pump not getting signal from PCM


First make sure all grounds are good. There is a ground going from the pcm to the engine. Many chevy engines had a pcm ground connected to the thermostat bolt. Not sure about the Saturn. A common problem is that someone replaces the thermostat, and forgets to reattach the ground, or to tighten the ground securely. If the car was worked on recently, I would suspect a loose ground.
