SOURCE: How can I get a radio lock code for a 2000 Saturn

sorry to say but the only way to get the code is to pull the radio and take it into the dealer, you could try and call them and give the serial number off the back of it and they might be able to get the code for it

SOURCE: Saturn L200 Passlock Problem

I have a very untechnical solution to this problem and I can't for the life of me remember where I heard it but it sure does work. Turn the igniton to ON so that the dash lights up. Eventually the others lights go out and the flashing "Securty" light stays. Keep the driver side door slightly ajar and sit and wait for that Security light to stop blink, usually 5-10 minutes. Once it stops blinking you can start your car. I can't promise that you won't have the starting problem again, but it will happen with decreasing frequency. Ultimately you need to have the passlock issue handled at a dealership. I say DEALERSHIP because it's a manufacturer flaw and they should be made aware of this issue everytime. They're also best equipped to handle it.

2000 saturn ls time chain replacement


What exactly do you need to know about replacing the timing chain? Also you should note that the L200 (4 cyl) has a timing chain. The L300 (V-6) has a timing belt.

Another thing to note is that both of these are interference engines. If your timing chain (or belt) has failed and the engine will not start, the valves are likely bent and you may have damaged the pistons as well.

Was there a recall on timing chain for Saturn L200 2002 model?


Saturn never did a recall on them, but a little Googling will find you a wealth of knowledge about the problems that the 2.2L engines had with timing chains...more correctly, timing chain tensioners. It appears that the engine did/does not supply sufficient oil to the tensioner and approximately every 60-80K miles, it will fail and allow the timing chain to jump time. This can be catastrophic if it occurs at speed since the engine had aluminum heads and is an interference type engine. I recommend that if you have one that has failed, repair it and dump it, or just dump it. If you want to keep it, plan on servicing the timing chain every 50000 miles to avoid needing head replacement. My daughter had a 1999 Cavalier with the 2.2L engine. The first time the tensioner failed, it happened as she turned the car off and no head damage occurred. Replacement of the timing chain/gears/tensioner fixed it and then 60000 miles later, on the Interstate, it happened again. This time it took the head with it. Lesson learned.

2001 saturn l200 will not start even though starter turns engine over.will the engine sound different during turnover if the timing chain is broken?


if the timing chain is broken it will sound different like there is no compression also this is an interference engine i think meaning the valves will hit the pistons if the timing is not correct,like in a broken chain or belt.you should check to see if you have spark at the plugs and if the motor is getting fuel.if not then each system will have to be checked out depending which is not working.

I have a saturn L200 series 2003 I have heard timing chain needs to be replaced by 100,000 miles but a mechanic told me I didn't have a timing chain is that correct?


There was a factory recall of the timing chain on the 2.2 Ecotec. This was done for me on my LW200, but then Saturn was still in business. Dealers are still around doing service though. Look over here for inside Saturn dope:
