Hello, It sounds like you have loose battery cables or very corroded cables. If that don't help then you have a loose electrical connection. It could be on the starter, If the cable ends and bolts are corroded the clean with baking soda mixed with water (don't) get any in the battery, You can clean the battery where the cables connect) Hope this helps.

2001 Saturn starter does not enpage


Make sure your battery is fully charged and check all battery cables . Make sure the connections are clean and tight.if the starter clicks the starter solenoid switch could be at fault. Could be a bad starter its self. If its internal your ring gear in the engine could have teeth missing causing the starter to just spin.
These are just ideas.

Lights work, radio works battery is new and fully charged but when I try to start it...nothing. No starter clicking..nothing


A mechanic would check for voltage at the starter. You should have battery voltage on the large cable, and power on the small wire when you turn the key switch to start.
There is a clutch switch or neutral safety switch in the circuit between the starter and the key switch that could have failed.

My battery died and after replacing the battery nothing happens


Did you mean there is NO sound from the starter? The question says there is now sound from the starter. If it is a quick clicking noise, the new battery needs to be charged. Try getting a jump start for it or returning the battery, it should have come charged already. Not a good sign, these things sometimes bought new come with bad cells.

Try another starter and also try turning the crank bolt with a ratchet and socket to make sure that the crank isn't frozen in place. Do not leave the keys in the car when doing so. You don't want anyone messing around in the truck when trying that!

No sound from 2000 Saturn starter. Battery is


there is not an inline fuse to starter, but if there is a bad ground to engine the starter will not turn over eather. more likely tap the starter with a hammer while trying to start the car to see if the arbuature is stuck in. or pull it compleetly and take it to auto zone to have them test it.

Our 2001 saturn sedan wont start we only hear a click noise. can it be a blown fuse for the security on the car that may be causing the car not to start


Chck that the battery is fully charged . There used to be a syaing that, "many clicks means it's a bad battery. One click may be the starter". The solenoid is not engaging the flywheel. If the battery is fully charged the starter is bad.
