Question about 2000 Saturn SL

1 Answer

I got in my car, it started fine, I drove down the driveway and the engine and security light came on when I got to the street. I kept driving about 2 more blocks and every single light came on and the car just died in the middle of the road - Just like that. I could not restart it. I had no power for about 5 minutes and then the power came back, but I still could not start it. (I know the power came on because the key was in the ingnition and I was on the phone, when the power came back on all the lights came back on and I did not touch the key. What in the world could do this??? We have had some electrical issues like the auto window or mirror not working like 2-3 times in the last few months, but I thought nothing of it.

Certainly electrical problem. Very serious one it sounds like. It may be the car's computer board has had it. I bet you'll have to have someone find a new mother board and install it.

I assume it is an auto by what you say. Is the O/D light blinking any codes? It is common in that model for the shift solenoids to fail, one or both, and the transmission then cannot find low gears forward.

Get a readout of trouble codes from a mobile come-to-you mechanic, or your own OBD reader, to see if that is it.

Alternator/Electrical??


check the connection on your battery terminal ends. if they are loose or corroded that could explain the intermittent no spark. also could be a short somewhere but id check the terminals first. I had that problem once and the car did all sorts of weird things. airbag light, check engine light, randomly wouldnt start until i would mess with the battery.

1995 Mitsubishi Diamante is overheating. Oil pressure light came on - oil was low 2 quarts. Added oil, drove down the street, temp gauge went to Hot. Let car cool down. Drove home, check engine light came...


something is strange here thats for sure ,firstly take thermostat out and put it in a saucepan of water and boil it to see if opens .,check the oil light switch and pull the rubber boot cover back to see if any oil is behind it ??.-You are buying trouble with a car with such a high mileage on it ,never buy anything with more than 50,000 miles or you are just buying someones rubbish

If trans fluid is full, it's shot. You could remove pan and check to see if filter is blocked but if fluid smells burned and there is a lot of debris in pan, don't bother with it...just get another one!
