The most common problem for this type of Saturn with a no start condition that you have described is a bad starter motor. The starter and the starter solenoid are one unit. The starter is located on the back of the engine. It is secured to the transmission bell housing via two 13mm bolts. The top bolt is not visible. You will have to feel around the top to get a socket on it to remove it. Used starters range from $50 to $100. Installation should be no more than about an hour of labor time. Really the starter can be replaced in about 10 minutes by someone with mechancial experience. Hope this helps.
