If you get a click, and the starter checks ok; it still may be the starter. I had the same issue just a little while ago, and I spoke with a Saturn Tech and he told me that it was the starter. Replaced it and the car fires with no issues.

Check the continuity of your power cables leading from the battery to the starter as well as the lines from the ignition switch. You could have a faulty connection or a bad switch.

MY SATURN 2002 SL1 WILL NOT START. MY BATTERY IS FINE BECAUSE ALL LIGHTS AND RADIO WORKS BUT WHEN I TRY TO START IT, IT MAKES A CLICKING SOUND.


A quick check, is turn your headlights on, try to start, if lights dim almost to off, bad battery, if they don't dim, it's a bad starter assembly.

hi...
did you check the voltage of the battery.?

because the power required for lights and radio are very less. but for starting the engine is more becaause ot needs to turn the engine. please check the voltage it should be 12-14 volts.
if it doesnt have this much power charge the battery and check start it wil start.

if my answer was useful please rate me

Hard to start


warriorangel
have a 97 sl1 which was very hard to start and when it would it ran rough and stalled out easily. sometimes no start. It turned out to be the heater sensor on the engine block (right side as you face the hood. just under the heater hose. the part was 17.00 or 27.00
I don't remember which but it ultimately was sending misinformation to the computer module and it always "thought" it was too hot and would adjust incorrectly. the major clue was therm
indicator read hot even when cold and just started. took me 2 days
to figure it out before spending money. good luck.

98 saturn sl1 won't start


if you have good battery voltage at this time, and when you banged on the starter and then the car cranked over, it would appear you have a defective starter. i would imagine if you replaced it in july of last year that it could still be under some sort of warranty, so i would look into that. either way, it sounds as if you need a new starter.

Coolant Leak in 1997 Saturn SL1


if there is no heat coming from the vents i would bleed the coolant system for air, usually trapped air in the system will cause this lack of heat.
