2002 Saturn Sl1 Car randomly wont start

2002 saturn sl1. The car randomly will not start. Ive found it mostly happens after a short 5-20 min trip. When this happens there is no sign of the car turning over at all. I replaced the starter about 6 months ago and havent had the problem until the last few weeks again. Ive replaced the battery, and the neutral safety switch as well. Ive checked the terminals to the battery and the starter wires only where they connect to the starter, it all seems to be good. If anyone can help me I would greatly apprieciate it.

SOURCE: 98 saturn sl1 won't start

If the problem occurs after the car has been driven long enough to reach normal operating temperature, the problem is the starter. If the 'no crank' occurs cold, retest the battery.

Disable my security it iprevening me form startin the car


This is a pretty common problem on GM cars. Expensive to fix, and even harder to diagnose. Read this info found on this link. It will help you understand the problem and offers some good solutions to beat this yourself. Bypassing this terrible system is a lot better than trying to have it fixed. Instead of paying the dealer mechanic to stumble thru the system and charge you for unwanted items, do this yourself.

2002 Saturn SL1, 72K miles. Hasn't been driven in


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/
