Try jump startting first. Check ground on engine from negative cable. Check ground from engine to body, usually on back of engine.
Check psoitve cable post at batteyr for corrosion and see if there are 2 small wires on same positive post. check them for corrosion

I have a 2000 Saturn LS2 that has flashing dash lights, i.e. warning lights, etc., when I start car. All the dash lights flicker and the gauges drop to zero. What is wrong?


same problem here as well. I'm going to try and replace the ignition cylinder. Does yours start? Mine starts, but can't get out of park unless I move key to run (put in neutral) and start again, Issue dash is going crazy and running light are flickering. I noticed yesterday that the turn signal lever is hot, so it might be some short in the steering column

Lights on dash and driving lights flicker and there is a clicking sound that does not shut off when the car is shut off wiith the key


You could have a bad ignition switch. Is your check engine light on? You need to get it scanned for codes. The computer may have picked up the problem. Autozone does the test for free. It may be more then one problem. A bad ignition switch is there, when you turn the key off, your engine remains on for a few seconds. With the lights flickering, are they dimmer then usual? If so, it could be a weak alternator.

My dashboard and gauges keep flickering on and off


sound like you have a lose connection it could be the cables on to the dash or the socket it fits to. you would need to remove the dash and clean the connection and re fit it. if you push on the dash does it stop. ? just check this first as some times its just a tiny amount of play in the connections that's the problem .

Clicking from dash+headlights lite while parked+code P0741


The problem appears to be in the headlight switch in the multi-function arm on the left side of the steering wheel. There is also a PPL module under the dash - that is what you hear clicking. I'm just starting my research, but it appears to be common. It also looks like the switch is not an easy fix. We'll see what happens....
