Hi


The check engine light is on because ECM (Control Module) detected a fault with your car's system. ECM has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and your car needs to be looked at. However, as you are facing power issue, it can be due to bad plug, bad fuel injector or a bad EGR valve. The EGR Valve is an integral part of engine’s emission and ignition systems. Now your car will be running on a predetermined program which causes more emissions and low mileage. All 1996 and newer vehicles use a "D" style plug-in connector that connects to the code reader. On most vehicles the connector is located at the driver's compartment. Once the code reader is plugged in you can retrieve trouble codes. These codes are used to diagnose and repair the vehicle, as well as clearing the trouble codes. An engine trouble code reader is an easy to use tool and is a worth for investment for future repairs as well.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Our 2003 Saturn L200 turns over, but won't start...like it's not getting gas. This just started happening and only after we've already driven it that day. The first time it happened was...


Check fuel pressure at the injector rail. If good, suspect crankshaft position sensor--when it fails to start, check for sparks by pulling an ignition wire off the coils and holding it close to the coil with an insulated tool while someone cranks the engine. If no sparks, replace the sensor.

I have this model Saturn (2003 LW300), and bought a code reader off Ebay. Make sure it is a compatible "OBD2" type, and plug is seated firmly with ignition switch off. Then turn on ignition without starting car. Press "Enter" or something on reader to start it and it should work.

2001 Saturn LW300. I have no cabin lights (roof or door) everything else works fine. No other electrical problems. Can't find a bad fuse.


How about the door switch. Can ANY door bring the light on?
if not, rust on the contacts that supply + battery power to the lights. The door switches provide ground (to complete the circuit)
