Question about 2002 Saturn L-Series

1 Answer

2002 Saturn, cannot turn off headlights unless I turn off the car. Headlights come on by themselves in the middle of the night and drain the battery. When I try to use the turn signals the bright lights start flashing.

It sounds like you have a short within your Headlight Switch.....It's kind of difficult to replace, because you have to disable the airbag system....But just take it to a shop an um quit sure they can do it with no problem......You can also try the relay first because its cheaper...But your problem may be your switch itself...Goodluck

SOURCE: Have 2002 Saturn L200: The auto headlights come on

get rid of this car. Sounds like it is haunted! No really get rid of it becaue there is a design flaw in that the timing chain does not get oil and fails. Mine failed at highway speeds at 78,000 miles and screwed up the egine. Only choice was to replace it with a used engine with the same design flaw because no other engine type will fit in this car.

It sounds like you have a malfunctioning alarm system. If it is an aftermarket system, you should simply turn it off. If it is a factory alarm it would really be best to take this to a dealer. In the mean time, to prevent battery drain, you can disconnect the black battery terminal at night when you park the car.

Headlights turn on by themselves when vehicle is parked.


Do you have auto lights when it gets dark out? When they come on is it in a parking garage or home garage where its dark If so chances are your switch/relay unit is bad. (or do they come on in daylight too)?

Headlights will not turn off


it sounds like a wire is shorting out in your loom. i would recommend letting an electrician carry out the task, as thesee jobs can be very time consuming. if you do carry out the job i would be more than willing to talk you through if you need any advice.

hope this helps.

2002 Impala, headlights work however they blink


This may be the start of a worse problem that the Impala eventually developes. The Body Control Module has a design flaw along with the Passlock anti-theft system. You may get away with just replacing the BCM for now. It needs to be reprogrammed at the dealer and the car will not start if you replace the BCM without reprogramming it. I would also recommend against replacing it with a remanufactured one. Repair cost is going to be around $500 at the dealer.

If the Passlock system is also at fault, add another $500 for a new ignition switch and cylinder. If you haven't experienced random starting problems yet, they are coming soon. When you turn the key, nothing happens. I thought my 2002 Impala may have been immune to these problems that I've heard about constantly, however, at 90,000 miles, it became "possessed". The symptoms started slowly and got worse. Beside the interior lights flashing like strobs in the middle of the night (while the car was not running), the headlights would occasionally click off and on a few times while I was driving at night.

The relay switch you hear clicking is the Battery Rundown Protection relay. I'm suprised your battery hasn't drained to the point where the car will not start in the morning.
