Question about 1998 Saturn SL

1 Answer

Won't start in cold. It's not the battery. The starter has been replaced, but I'm not sure if the part was genuine.

    The problem is that it hasn't been below 30. It's been between 35 and 50 degrees when it hasn't started.

If the temperture is below 30 deg. it could be you have water in the fuel lines and freezes and stops the fuel from getting to the engine. use gas line anti freeze.

SOURCE: 1999 CHEVY LUNINA WON'T START BATTERY AND

Check the dash once you turn the key to the run position the passlock runs a security check using a set resistance value through the chip in the key. If the security light begins to flash the reading it received was incorrect or it didn't get a reading at all. You can try reseting the value it is looking for by turning the key to start then releasing it. After 10 minutes turn it off then cycle it start again leaving it in on for 10 minutes then back to off then one more time. After the third cycle has completed for a total of 30 minutes. You should be able to turn the key on and start the vehicle. If the light continues to flash their is a problem with the chip in the key or the connections within the ignition its self. Both are common but a Pass Lock Relearn as described above will usually adapt to the poor connection values. Hope this helps.

Tip

Vehicle won't start when hot


A common problem that's surfaced a great deal lately is a car/truck that starts fine when the engine is cold but won't when the engine is warm. Most of the time, the car will require a jump start with a warm engine to get it to start. Most mistakenly assume a bad battery and change it out, only to have the same problem. What happens is most starters don't just "quit" when they are defective. A bad starter will usually start your vehicle when it's absolutely cold. Once warm, the starter will behave as follows:<br /> <ul> <li>No power</li> <li>Click then nothing</li> <li>All other electrical is fine (headlights, stereo, alarm etc)</li></ul> If your car or truck won't start when the engine is warm, but starts fine when it's cold, you most likely have a bad starter. Although replacing the battery is less expensive, it rarely (if ever) will resolve this issue. Consider the age of the car / starter when these symptoms occur. If you have an older vehicle (older than 5 years) then replacing the starter is a good place to start prior to buying other electrical components (battery, alternator). <br /> <br /> Always bring the vehicle to a shop that offers a free electrical diagnostic test to confirm the electrical system is sound to rule out an electrical problem first. If the electrical system is sound, I'd go ahead and replace the starter. <br />Although this tip will show under the Lincoln category, it applies to all makes and models.<br />

1991 ford explorer will not turn over when hot


Have the battery tested and check the battery positive cable for corrosion. Also have a amperage draw test done on the starter motor, it is one of them. If it just clicks but won't start then the starter is defective in most cases. Have it properly diagnosed by a dealer before any parts are replaced to avoid unnecessary parts replacement

Car makes a click click but won't turn over..It has been cold


If battery is flat (discharged) that could be one of the problems. Charge the battery or try jump starting from another vehicle, if possible. If it still don't start after trying those two things, it's probably the starter gone bad.
If it starts after charging or jumping, have your battery load tested and
your alternators output checked. Make sure you didn't leave something on for example headlights or something plugged into accessory outlet, could be the reason battery went flat.
In a nut shell, one of these caused this. Bad battery, bad alternator, bad starter or something draiedn battery. Hope this helps.

My darango won't start, replaced that alternator and relays. starter is still good. but it won't even click over.


this could be as simple as a bad battery have you tryed to jump start it? if you try and that dosent work make sure you have power going to the starter with jumper cables on the battery. it should at the very least make a clicking sound while trying to start it check the battery posts also make sure they are clean and if it does click give it a minute and try starting it again.[ dont take the cables off the battery while waiting] the fact the starter doesent even click when you try to start it tells me no power to it or bad starter remember just because its new dosent mean it works i cant tell you how many times i have put somethig on a car and had to take it back off because it didnt work from the boxx new. and make sure the starter wires are tight and clean. if no clicking and you have power to starter then starter is bad.. i hope this helps..
