Saturn sl2 automatic...put a starter in..still won't start..all dummy lights up and battery is good...go to turn the key and nothing...help..


Most of the time this is caused by the anti theft system. It disables the starter and leaves you stuck. This is very common on GM vehicles. Read up on this link for info, pictures, and "do it yourself" solutions to the problem.

97 saturn SL2 turns over but sometimes doesn't start. Turning the key off and then trying again usually works. Yesterday it wouldn't fire until just when I started to turn the key off, then it caught. Any...


This problem usually doesn't show up on diagnostic, it is a problem that saturn has with many of it's cars, it is either the ignition module or the crank sensor, I think replacing the crank sensor would be your best bet, that is what was wrong with mine and I didn't find that out until I replaced the fuel filter, the fuel pump, the ignition module and the coils, trust me, go with the crank sensor.

On my 93 saturn sl2 in order for the car to crank and start i have to turn the right turn signal on. If i do this it starts every time. Do i have to replace the whole ignition blinker and light cluster?


Have you done any wiring changes in your car recently? There should be no interaction between the turn signal switch and the starter switch. You do not need to replace your light cluster. In fact, I don't think you have a problem with your turn signal switch, unless, of course, the turn signals do not work. Do you have access to an electrical schematic and a voltmeter?

Put some pressure on the steering wheel in one direction or the other this may take the pressure off the cylinder itself and allow you to do what is needed...hope this works.

My car may need a new key ignition put in on the steering coloum. I can not start my car with my everyday key or even my pass key. some one told me that it may be the ignition on the steering coloum....


these have whats called a vats system. the little black pellet in your key is a resistor. there are 14 different values. you will need to buy a new lock cyinder and key.

2000 Saturn SL2 - replaced ignition then BCM failed. Related?


the problem is not the bcm. the passlock security sensor is in the cylinder and housing, if the cyl and or housing was replaced the system must be relearned. if you replace the bcm you still need to relearn the system or it still will not start.

You should try re-learning the pass-lock system first. Turn the key to the on position and leave it on for 10 min, or until the security light goes out. Turn the key off for at least 30 sec. Turn the key back on, very important not to turn too far and bump the starter, for another 10 minute cycle. Do this 3 times for a total of 30 min. After the 3rd cycle it should start.
