Security light on? Turn the key on for ten minutes, off for thirty seconds. This will reset the security. To do a relearn is three times this, then try to start the car.

Have you removed and checked the IAC? (Idle air control)
Will it stay running when you manually hold the throttle? keeping the idle up?

Saturn starting problems


u should check the specs on the coolant sensor & ck for vacuum leaks. When u step on the "gas" u are really controlling the air intake, the fuel injection is controlling the fuel. A bad coolant sensor or vac leak will give u these problems also. ck emissions when running. Good luck

Saturn sl1 2001 one stay running when put in gear


The first thing that comes to mind is the IAC idle air control. this adjusts the throttle minimum position based on block temp, transmission gear, AC on/off etc. It may be indicating "check engine" Many local parts stores will read these error codes for free. It will help diagnose the problem. There are other conditions that can cause this but start there.

I have a 98 sunfire 2.2 the idle started lobing up and down with iac code changed iac, tps, coil packs, fuel filter if its running at idle i can put my finger over iac port in the throttle body and it...


Dirty throttle body . Does it run good when you step on the gas pedal ? driving down the road . Don't guess , do fuel pressure testing . Videos on youtube showing how , fuel pressure tester under $30 most part stores .

The fuel is not getting to the engine in my 2001 Ford Taurus. The car will start but it won't stay on. Please help


possible problems would be fuel regulator problems, bad fuel pump, clogged fuel return line, clogged fuel pickup screen, clogged fuel filter, or clogged or stuck fuel tank breather valve/line/cap. easiest things first. look for a disconnected, lose, or warn vacuum line from the fuel pressure regulator to the intake manifold. next try starting the car without the fuel cap. if that works you probably need to clean or replace your gas cap. next i would check for fuel pressure. u can buy a pressure gauge from autozone for around 30 bucks and some will just do it for you. if youre pressure is good while the ign is on but when the car starts it drops your best bet is something is clogged. if it doesnt drop then you may have dirty injectors, bad spark plugs, or a bad distributor. put some injectory cleaner in there are run the car a few times, replace your plugs and wire, and have your distributor tested at autozone. if all that is fine/doesnt change anything you have an idle problem somewhere. test this by pressing the gas down a little bit while starting the car. if it stays running then you have idle problems. if so just comment and i'll help you out. i hope for your sake your regulator vacuum line is just unplugged or leaking. good luck to ya

Have you resistance checked the injectors. If the resistance is wrong the pcm will shut the injector drivers down.

1996 sATURN SL1 PO122 CODE


Your code refers to the TPS being out of range-low. The voltage should be from .04 to 4.7 volts with a volts meter connected to the DK BLU wire and the Blk wire at the TPS connector. The key needs to be in run postion with engine off. The throttle being moved slowly while watching the Volts meter to see if there any sudden drops or jumps in the voltage as you move the throttle to wide open. If the voltage is out of range, the TPS will need to be replaced. This could account for your problems that you have been having...make sure the connector isn't bad that is plugged into the TPS. Sometimes these get bad and cause a problem.
