Have you checked the fuel injectors? Fuel filter? Fuel pump? Sounds to me like you have a fuel delivery problem.

Try the following: remove the airbox and spray some starter fluid into the throttle body while someone else cranks the motor. If it starts for a second and dies, then you KNOW you have a fuel delivery problem. If it doesn't change and still won't start, then the problem is either a bad sensor somewhere (crank position sensor, maybe?) or no compression.

99 saturn sl1 replaced new starter car wont start no crank battery is good new spark plugs aand boots. Car still no start no crank has dash lights and dings


You still have a problem with your starter. Sounds like you missed the wires going to the solenoid which engages the bendix.
Recheck the wiring.
It could also be a bad starter from the parts store. Won't be the first time.

Check to see whats wrong with 01 saturn sc 3d wont start


If it won't even ''crank'', then it is probably a bad ignition switch. If it does ''crank'', then there are too many possibilities for internet diagnosis. (But if _no crank_ after starter and battery replacement, it's a good bet that it's a bad ignition switch).

Car Won't start after motor swap


Have you checked whether it is on model?,does your vehicle can communicate with the variable sensors of the new engine? are the crank and cam shaft sensors the same on serial number or are different? Does the injection system gets the correct fuel pressure or is not sufficient.

My 93 saturn twin cam sl2 series starter wont engage had it tested and its fine what could cause my starter not to turn all the way


If it is a random problem, you may have to wait until it is a solid failure to find the cause.
Could be the key switch, the neutral safety switch, the starter solenoid, or a cable connection.
A mechanic would check all of these components for voltage when it will not crank.

My saturn SL2 died at idle...and now wont crank over...there is juice to the starter and the battery has 13.1 volts


Any starter clicking noises? Try moving the shifter to "N" neutral and try starting the car.
IF that is not successful, find the starter relay in the under-hood fuse box, replace the relay with an identical relay from the under-hood fuse box and see if it will start. This will then eliminate the park/neutral start switch and the starter relay.
Let me know what you find.

96 saturn sl2 won't start


Not enough information.Need to know if the engine CRANKS,or turns over,just won't start up and run,or if when you turn the ignition key,nothing happens at all.If the engine cranks and turns over,just won't run,you have to check for fuel supply and spark to the spark plugs.If nothing happens at all when turning the key,could be a bad starter,battery,alternator,PRNDL switch.
