My 1998 saturn sc1 lights and radio would flicker when pressing the brakes, sometimes it would shut off when pressing the brakes in reverse, now it will not turn completely over or hold a charge in the battery. Is it a ground issue or is there some kind of sensor issue

You are having a earthing problem now this can be a build up of electrolyte on the shell earthing point this can eat the copper away and you will lose earth. leave a white paint like substance on the wiring if gets to bad can eat the wire away. mostley happens to the main earth off the battery so would check that first.

There never has been what you want

Only a rough or partial schematic of brake
tubing, is ever in a factory service manual

Only if you intend to work on your own vehicles,
would you get involved in replacing rusted brake
tubing & then you just duplicate what is there, that
needs replacing.

97 SATURN SC1, WONT GO INTO REVERSE AND GOES VERY SLOW


Transmission is not junk. You need to replace the valve body with a rebuilt one. The cause of reverse not working is because the booster valve cannot create sufficient pressure to get into reverse (reverse requires the most pressure). The booster valve is worn down and the valve body needs to be replaced, rebuilt is the way to go. This is from not changing the fluid and filter every 20,000 -- 30,000 miles to keep gunk from building up and wearing down the valve.

The transmission is fine, don't let anyone talk you into putting another one in, especially for thousands of dollars, NOT THE PROBLEM.

My brake light wont come on


is this a 4 door sedan? If so, the brake light wire runs along the drivers side of vehicle up the rear side of back seat. Look at where the wire goes through the cut out in sheet metal. I had the same issue, brake light out, replaced fuse and drove, bralk lights out again. Where the wire goes over the sharp edge of metal, it can wear through and short out. You have to run your fingers along the wire to possibably find the cut, it may be small so look closely. tape it up if you find a break. Good luck

1993 saturn sl engine dies


I just had this problem with my 97 sc1. I found that the driver's rear tail lights were staying on dim when ever the car was running. In my situation, the cluster of wires that ties to the rear tail light is also the wires that tie to the fuel pump. Every time you hit the brake, it shorted out and cut the power to the fuel pump. Test for this problem by pulling one of your tail light bulbs, if the car shuts off or wont start without it, this could be your problem.
