Comment on the code number that was showing as each code refers to a specific solenoid. Also what the symptoms were that required to have the codes read.

SOURCE: Saturn Security System - Have Lost all Vehicle Power

Had a Saturn Relay when the battery went bad the security lock activated and could not start the car and the only solution the dealer said was to tow it to them. No wonder saturn is about to be cut by GM. They ran this once good service car company into the ground.

SOURCE: need wiring color code for a 2000 saturn SL2 for hooking up a trailer light four pin connector

The trailer wires are left turn, right turn, running lights(the smaller elements on both tail-lights and any side lights) and ground. Energise the corresponding lights and connect the wires accordingly. Find a good ground. A piercing test probe will find the correct wire for you if you can't track it to the bulb.

Yes, with another transmission...they have a problem with the valve body going bad. Go with a junk yard trany. Just make sure that it has low mileage. $700 is a ball park figure...$700 for labor.

Sorry although this vehicle is similar to our europeon GM astra our cars are all manual gearboxes ,yes i have seen the odd auto but few and far between so i would suggect you go to the main dealer stores and ask for this solonoid and get them to show you on the screen where its fitted,in america they no doubt selll it as a seperate item but here in spain you can only get a replacement gearbox no spares are sold for a auto box ,i know because i have tried in the past .The result the owner scrapped the car

I have a 2002 saturn sl2 with a troublecode of p0341. the vehicle has 135000 on it. my step dad called auto zone and they told him twice that this code does not exist for this vehicle. So I would like to...


Hello: First things first. If your car has a v/6 engine (3.0 liter) then yes code P0341 applies. The code relates to the camshaft position performance. The sensor is easy to replace, it is on the drivers side at the front of the engine (front of the valve cover) the sensor has one electrical connector and one bolt holds it on. If you have the v/6 engine then after replacing the sensor you will have to have a scan tool to clear the code.
