Car will not start no power to lights will not take a jump

I have a 2002 Saturn Coup. My car was running fine but it started a little sluggishly this morning. I went to a movie and when I came out and got in my car I got nothing. No lights. No engine turn over. my car just sat their dead. I tried to jump it two different times. Fist  from a white pontiac then from the tow truck driver. my car had to be towed and the problem still has not been diagnosed.

I think the alternator gave out. The car can't run off the battery no matter how much you boost it. Take th alternator to a parts place and get it tested this is usaully free of charge. it the problem is not the alternator then find the voltage regulator and replace it, they are not expensive. hope this helps

Sounds like a bad alternator. Boost vehicle and when running disconnect positive on battery, if shuts down probably alternator no good, replace.

My 2002 saturn has no power, or even dash, or dome lights.


Check for a fusible link going either to the starter or inside the car on drivers side by fuse box they are usually found by either a little round black piece on. Them that looks like a fuse or a larger wire that has a smaller wire on the end of it I can tell you for sure most fusible links on Chevy's are brown anecdotes he go to the starter the older Chevys anyhow

Have your saturns battery checked out by load testing it. The charging system as well. Most auto part dealers will do this for you....Kragens, Napa, Autozone...Inspect and clean battery cables and terminals, replace as needed.
Good luck..i hope this helps, please rate me a fixya.

2002 Saturn SL1 - won't start, turn over, starts fine with jump


Have the alternator and battery checked. The battery may not be holding a charge. The alternator may not be charging the battery,it should put out between 14 and 15 volts,any less the alternator is bad.

Difficult to start


If you have not changed the fuel filter, that may be your problem. Try changing the fuel filter once a year to keep your fuel system clean and running right. 
Hope this helps and good luck.

2002 BMW 325CIC WON'T START


It could be a starter problem. When the starter is cold and is already a little worn. it may not turn at the right speed. Try jumping it with another car. If it still turns sluggish. Replace the starter. A battery has to have enough power to crank the car at a good speed. Even if it tested good.It could not be good enough.
