Power is not getting to starter, clean all thick wires that feed the starter, grounds, chasis to batt ground, chasis to engine ground.
after, do a test if the starter works by sending 12v+ to the small conector in the starter's solenoid... (if only clicks, is the solenoid, for confirmation bridge the two large terminals in the solenoid, carefull lots of sparks!!, if still NO work, is the starter)

Does the 1998 Saturn SW have the passlock ignition?


Yes it does.

The security, antitheft or lock picture/icon is a visual indication that something in the car's antitheft system is failing. In most GM cars and trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists. From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM (Theft Deterrent Module). These 3 parts are in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, the car misinterprets this as an attempt at theft and goes into antitheft mode. The car thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is not getting that signal from YOUR specific key. This is why the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle. This link explains it pretty well.

Will not start but turns over


Check if security light is on, if so, must reset. To reset, put key in ignition and turn to on position. Security light will start flashing on and off. Leave key in on position until security light stops flashing and turns off completely. This will take approximately 10 minutes. Then turn key off and take out of ignition. Put key back in and start car. Should now start

1998 Saturn SL, shut the car off, and the headlights which are always On, would Not turn off, had to disconnect the plugs, what would cause this


Have their been any other electrical malfunctions? If not, it is doubtful that the ignition switch is the culprit. Although it could be the very beginning of its failure. Watch for other accessory malfunctions to.confirm ignition switch issue.

I hae a 1998 Saturn SL that will not start. All the dash lights, radio etc come on. Car gives a clicking noice but will not turn over.


You should check your ignition switch first. Since you have lights, you have a charge. If you have a good fuse, you probably need a starter solenoid or starter.
