SOURCE: Saturn SL2

I had a similar problem on my 94 SL2. Turn the key…..Nothing.
Even worse, it was intermittent, the worst type to troubleshoot.

At first it was rare. Pulling out the key , putting it back in and turning usually worked.
Over time it got progressively worse and stubborn.

Then one day it wouldn’t start for anything.

My car has an alarm with a ‘starter kill’. My first thought, alarm malfunction. So I located the two wires (they can be any color) going from the alarm module to the steering column. They are usually labeled appropriately on the module. I used a small jumper wire (alligator clips) to short them at the alarm. If the alarm was the problem, this would fix it. It didn’t.

Time to take apart the steering column.

The key tool will be a 7 or 8mm socket. Take off the two piece steering column shroud to expose the wiring.

On the left side, directly opposite the ignition, you’ll see a piece of round plastic held on with two bolts. This is really the ignition switch.
Take out the bolts (again 7 or 8mm).
Take out the two plugs (blue and white) from behind it.
Take off the switch.

Plan A: (For most people)
Replace this. Bring it with you to the parts store to compare it.
Bring it home. Bolt it on. Plug it in. Turn the key.

I can’t tell you how much it was , since I used …

Plan B: (For the deservedly cocky)
I took the switch apart and cleaned the contacts.
They were burnt. I scraped them clean, re-assembled the switch and tested it.
Vroom..

If you need me to explain Plan B, use Plan A.

Hope this helps, let me know how it goes. Any other problems, click the ASK button.

SOURCE: 2006 saturn ion door locks and trunk pop wont work....

The remote won't ework because the problem is in the vehicle. Just for test purposes and possible remedy. Remove and clean the negative battery cable. Ensure a clean , tight connection. Then find the body ground. Yhis ground is locted usually at the top rear of the engine. .I's a snall stainless steel strap bolted to the engine and fire wall, This must olsobe clean with a good contack. Might as well clean the + cable and connection on the battery while you are there. Good luck and keep me posted olease. Good Luck, Ned_

SOURCE: my door locks have been making a clicking noise

Check to see if any of the door locks aren't working by going to each door and seeing if it has refused to lock while trying the power lock on you key remote or attempting the one on the master door. If one refuses to lock, you could have a bad door soleniod which is causing your doors to get a bad signal accasionally and that would account for the problem.

Can you help me figure out why all the doors on my 2003 Tahoe lock properly but the right passenger which all of the sudden reversed pattern? In other words, when I put it in gear they all lock but th


Yeah. your BCM(body control module) has decided it doesn't want to work right. Since you can double click it and it works, leads to an internal problem with the BCM. Personally, I would live with it. New or rebuilt BCM's are cheap and then you have to have them programmed..$300+

2003 Lincoln ls v-8 cruise control won't engage. Light won't come on or anything when I hit the button. Everything else work fine.


My 2001 Lincoln ls cruise control will not work. Put in a new clockspring and that did not fix it. radio controls and horn work but the air bag light stays on continually after starting. The lights on the cruise side will go on an off -I have bought that part to replace but don't want to put on if that is not the problem.

MY 96 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE LAREDO, RUNS FINE, BUT THE COURTESY LIGHTS EITHER CLICK OFF AND ON OR JUST STAY ON. ALSO , WHEN I DRIVE, THE LOCKS CLICK FROM LOCKED TO UNLOCKED ALMOST CONTINUOSLY.. MY ALARM


The problem is the remote. What I think is happening.... is that the battery in the remote controls all those same functions that you are now manually controlling with your key. The reason the alarm works without the remote is that it is powered by the actvation of the power locks. Go put battery in your remote and I would just about guarantee you that everything will work the way it is supposed to... I wish you good luck. and God Bless\

When we try to put Jimmy in Reverse or D, engine seizes up. Engine will restart and idles fine. All fluid levels are fine. We checked emergency brake and made sure vehicle was in 2H. (4WD). No visible...


Sounds like a lock-up torque converter that is stuck in the 'locked' position.

Google for that, find the wire that tells the torque converter to lock and then unplug it, see what you get.

If unplugging it works, and you don't want to put the money into finding out what the issue was, you can put that wire on a switch and just switch it on when you're on the freeway. You could also hook it into the cruise control so it only locks up when you set the cruise.

My Accord's shifter is stuck in ''Park'' ; Cruise doesn't work now


Most likely are. Check to see if your brake switch performs both functions. Does it do the cruise and the brake/park lock.

Power locks not working right


Hey, this might work.....get in truck, close doors, put key in ignition in lock position.....hold down the door lock button on driver side door control and wait for the lock control to be displayed on the information screen(odometer read-out).....it should say like lock 1, lock 2, lock 3, lock 4.....or something, I always reset mine to LOCK 1, to do this hold the odometer reset button on dash for a sec or two til it changes settings, then release, repeat till you get to LOCK 1, then quickly press and release odometer reset button to exit program, this is the function to lock doors over 15 mph and when out of park and to unlock doors when returned to park......yours' might be set to another function number....try it out, let me know if this helps.........good luck!
