SOURCE: car won't restart after being driven

this kind of cars have coming problems with the ignition switch going bad, try to remove the covers arround the steering column and check the ignition switch located on the buttom side of steering column for possible loose body, if loose replace it, but also make sure if you have any aftermarket alarm and if does have it remove for some one since it may afect the starter circuit, also check your batterie conectors for good contact and tie and clean very well

SOURCE: Where is the starter located on a 1993 mercury sable engine

trace the big cable that came from the positive terminal of your battery. at it's end is the starter.

or if it passes trough a big relay, then there is another big cable from that relay that would go down to the side of the engine, either left or right, that would be the starter.

tnx 4 using fixya,

SOURCE: We have a 2003 Saturn

Take the car in, and have the fuel pump checked, and maybe the alternater. Something in there is going out. Could even be lose battery cables, or a lose connection. Either way, you should have it checked before you get stuck somewhere.
