Question about Saturn SL1

1 Answer

My daughter's 2001 Saturn SL1 sometimes just won't start after she goes somewhere. No clicking; all lights,stereo, horn work fine. Let it sit for two or more hours (sometimes longer), and it starts just fine. Fuses all seem ok. The battery is only 6 months old and checks out fine, the alternator checks out fine too. Barring the starter, what could this be? HELP! :)

The key switch internal contacts no longer support the current that passes thru them, heat up, expand and deform out of position and no longer connect when you turn the key.
Replace the key switch.

98 Saturn SL1, Was in accident: Deployed Airbags & Horn questions


The light should go out after you replace the sensor that should be in the front of the vehicle.You can check the fuse for the horn. However, some of the airbags that don't come from a dealers, don't deploy, but there is no way of knowing that until you are in an accident.

97 Saturn SL1 horn fuse keeps blowing when installed.


Sounds like you have short to ground somewhere, I would check the wires near the horn itself and if they are ok check the clock spring.

SL1 wont start sometimes


Sounds stupid, but could be bad battery conection. The car gets enough amperage to run the acceseries but not enough amperage to start the car. Clean and tighten the terminals. It cost nothing and will eliminate these connections as the cause if the problem persits.

Airbag light on, horn doesn't work


There is a fuse for the airbag. If there is an owners manual for the car, look in that, it will show where the fuse is. On some cars it is in the fuse box under the hood.
