Question about 2005 Saturn SC1
Hey guys, I have the same exact problem. My SC1 1999 won't restart once it has been warmed up. It usually takes a full day for it to start again. It is definitely not a battery problem. Is it a computer problem, or even the starter? Please if you guys take your own cars to a mechanic please tell me what they did to solve it.
My 1997 SC1 would start as if fully charged only after about 5 minutes of cooling off (same as my Busa). If the vehicle draws lots of battery energy when the ignition switch is turned (the headlights dim as if the battery was week) and all you hear is a "tlock" then more than likely the starter solenoid is sticking when the engine gets hot. Age, as well as wear and tear in the vehicle, would cause for the starter, and the starter solenoid, to weaken. When the engine is cool it will start as if the starter was brand new, but after driving the car for a few minutes (about 5-10 minutes) the problem starts. The engine running hotter than normal (ie. cooling system problems, different muffler system, low oil level), no necessary due to engine overheating, will add to the problem. My solution was a new starter ($115) and a starter heat wrap ($20), and I never had that problem again :-)
