Question about 1998 Saturn SL

1 Answer

My saturn sl2 alarm starts to beep when I try to start the car and won't stop for about a minute. Car won't start. My power locks have been disabled(over a year now). It started acting strangely and beeping twice every time I shut off the car yesterday or when I tried to start (which took several tries for it to finally start).

This sounds somewhat similar to a problem I had with my 1999 Saturn SL2. There was "burning and arching" on the fusebox and it was replaced. The first few times my car would make an extra beep noise when locked or unlocked and I believe the radio/clock had to be reset. The problem got worse although sporadic. Eventually the car wouldn't start - not even making a clicking noise and a big variety of electrical components would not work or didn't sound right.

Help! I have 98 Saturn SL2 that was live one minute dead the next


Sounds exactly like my 1999 SL2 which had "burning and arching" in the fuse box. Car one day be fine the next I'd take it to the store, come back in 10 minutes and wouldn't start, no radio, no power windows, no keyless entry remote, no rear defrost and even locking doors from inside power buttons it sounded odd. This fixed the problem by replacing the fuse box.

Difficulty starting


it sounds like the car has a passive alarm , you will have to call the dealer and give them the vin# and see if they can sell you a remote to deactivate the alarm.

Saturn won't start/ key problems


You need to program the system,it's probally in theft deterrent mode & disables the starter.To program your new remote locate the diagnostic connector under the drivers side of dash.To program the new remote Jumper a paper clip between the #4 & #8 terminal you will hear the locks cycle & the trunk will pop.While the terminalsv are jumped hold down lock & Unlock on the remote at the same time until you hear the locks cycle again,remove the jumper wire or paper clip & you should be good.

1993 Saturn SL2 Electrical Short?


Sounds like the alarm might be the problem if it has a kill switch installed so it wont start. best thing to do is find the alarm box, check it to make sure it didn't get wet or any of the wires are not pinched. i would disconect the alarm. any wires that go into it. and try from there. if not let me know and i will look into it more
