When braking, dash panel acts up. Speedometer goes to 0 and then back to normal. Clock and Radio lights dims and comes back, or goes out completely, comes back on after a minute.


Make sure the battery has a full charge and all connections good. Then check your charging system. Right now I'm thinking, check your charging system.
Do you have a voltmeter on your dash, what does it do when you step on the brake? It may drop a little, but, it should recover.

I hae a 1998 Saturn SL that will not start. All the dash lights, radio etc come on. Car gives a clicking noice but will not turn over.


You should check your ignition switch first. Since you have lights, you have a charge. If you have a good fuse, you probably need a starter solenoid or starter.

DASH LIGHTS


Check the emergency brake handle. When it is pulled up even one click (in my car) the brake light on the dash comes on and the daytime running lights shut off. Either the handle is up just far enough to activate the switch and not the brakes or the switch could be bad or loose.

1993 saturn sl engine dies


I just had this problem with my 97 sc1. I found that the driver's rear tail lights were staying on dim when ever the car was running. In my situation, the cluster of wires that ties to the rear tail light is also the wires that tie to the fuel pump. Every time you hit the brake, it shorted out and cut the power to the fuel pump. Test for this problem by pulling one of your tail light bulbs, if the car shuts off or wont start without it, this could be your problem.
