Question about 2001 Saturn L-Series

1 Answer

My key wouldnt turn in my ignition. I had it

I have a 2001 Saturn L. I constantly had to jiggle the key to get it to turn in the ignition. Finally quit working all together. The shop replaced the switch. I have a new key for this ignition. Should this new key open my doors?? I would think it wouldnt, but it does. Did I just pay 250.00 for a new key??

    The key would not turn. It was as if I had the wrong key.The new key looks very similar to the old, there is very obvious wear on the old key.

When you turn the key you hear a single click and you can not hear the starter cranking the engine over? After several attempts the starter finally cranks the engine over?

If so sounds like the starter is going bad.

your having the same problem alot of people are having with the ignition switch, the only way to fix it is to change the whole igniton switch you can eitther go buy a new one or a used one from a junkyard either way you go, you will end up changing the ignition switch to cure the problem. The saturn ions are also having the same ignition problems.

I put the key in and it did not turn and the steering wheel would not turn also now do i fix this


the ignition lock cylinder or the part which connects the lock cylinder to the steering column is bad. you will have to take it to a shop or GM dealer and have them tell you which and how much to fix. I assume you jiggled the steering wheel to no effect?

Key can not turn ignition to start car


its common for the ignition lock cylinder or the ignition cylinder housing to fail on 2000-2001 L series saturns. Try using another key to see if that helps.

2000 Saturn- ignition key will not turn at all


Insert key grab screwdriver tap the end of the key a few times with the blunt end of the screwdriver. Don't crush it just tap it. There are spring tumblers that are not going back to there home. I had the same problem and this worked for me. Also check the key against any other keys you might have it's possible the key is worn.

Saturn L-100 and the key will not turn in ignition


THE PINS IN THE LOCK CYLINDER ARE STICKING, BUY SOME GRAPHITE POWDER LOCK CYLINDER LUBE FROM ANY LOCK SHOP OR HARDWARE STORE, SPRAY IT INTO THE CYLINDER AND WORK THE KEY IN AND OUT OF THE CYLINDER, IF THIS DOESN'T DO IT U WILL NEED TO REPLACE THE IGNITION KEY LOCK CYLINDER.
