As, I tried to get it to turn...the key broke and, is now stuck in the ignition (cylinder?, I think thats what it's called...and, needs to be replaced?). Right? Or, not? How to fix?...

Try turning the steering wheel side to side whilst turning the key. If that dies not help, you may need to replace the cylinder, but on the S-Series, you are probably just in need of a key. if your key is really worn all around, get another one made at the dealership (bring your title) and they can cut you a new one from the VIN of the car, rather than from a worn out key.

2002 Saturn sl1 wont start cranks. have changed crankshaft position sensor still no luck


Why did you replace the crankshaft position sensor ? Vehicle has no spark ? Did you test the electrical circuit ? There is no luck involved if you know how to test. To many videos on youtube showing how to test to not being able to find the problem .

Single click? More battery is needed. Id change the battery, or slow charge it.
Might also be the security system shutting down the starter. Common on GM vehicles. Heres a link on that. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

I have a Saturn SL1 2002 (Automatic). Twice before in the last three weeks the car did not start. I put it in neutral and then managed to start it. Today, it simply will not start anymore. All lights...


your problem is the NSS neutral safety switch which saturn loves to call a transmission range sensor. if you remove your battery and air ducting you'll have access to the sensor which is top side mounted on your transmisson, it has 3 cable harnesses on it. is secured by 2 bolts only. you'll need a multimeter to make sure you have it set TDC top dead center. if it is TDC, when set the car to drive the sensor should read absolute 0 on the multimeter just remember the ebrake.

Key will not turn over on my saturn 2002 sl1


Have you tried turning the steering wheel while turning the key? I know you said it's locked, but they usually have a little play in them, sometimes when it's turned as far as the lock will let it the ignition will be put in a bind. If that doesn't help the only other option I can think of would be to replace the ignition set yourself, you'll get new keys and save yourself a trip to the dealer.
