    The A/C in my 96 Saturn SL1, barely blows cool air, it's really weak, it will eventually get cold but only when in the "recirc" mode and at open road speeds, NOT during stop and go traffic and when very hot outside it's really weak, also I noticed if I put it in neutral and bring the engine revs up it'll cool down just a bit.

normally shims are not needed on anything newer than a 1988.. if it doesn't sound right it may be the wrong starter. teeth not lining up on flywheel.. change the gear on the starter with your old one and see if that fixes your issue. pitch of the teeth could be different

Is ac compressor even coming on? Did it work before the water pump was replaced? Do the radiator fan(s) come on when ac is turned on?

I am trying to find out which fuse controls trunk light for 1994 saturn SL1. None of the diagrams in both fuse boxes says trunk light. I tried replacement bulb and it still doesn't work. Please Help

it gets power from the CHIME fuse in the instrument panel junction/fuse block. It should have power on the orange wire. The black and light green wires are the grounds.

Service with the wrench sybols appears, what needs to be corrected and how do I reset the indicator

1998 Saturn SL1 5 Speed everything manual except Cruise Control. Run Great. Every time I start it, it goes through it's check cycle and comes back GOOD. But as soon as I move approximately 20 feet the SERVICE Wrench Light comes on and stays on until the car is shut off. This happens every time, doesn't matter if I go forward or reverse. All checks have turned up nothing. No codes. I checked the wiring and have found nothing. I have checked and replaced any and all bulbs, including the ash tray bulb. I have replaced the Cool Fan Relay. And still the problem exist. Any feedback or advice would be greatly appreciated.

'96 Saturn airbag light, do I need a reset or just drive cycles?

whomever changed the parts hasn't finished yet. Go back and tell them so. Or tell them the light is on so the parts they put in need warranty replacement. Good Luck
