This is a common problem on these models.

Look for one detail :-

When you turn on the headlights , do you see any change in the dashboard? Like flickering or anything? check and let me know.

    Thanks for your response!!

    This could be a faulty dimmer.

    by making sure that the dimmer fuse in the dash fuse box is fine. if
    it is then chances are that the dimmer is bad. The problem can also be
    in the body control module, but the dimmer is more likely. If you have a
    voltage meter you can run some checks to make sure that the problems is
    the switch.

    that did not change anything then the problem is in the body control
    module. These modules fail constantly on this model Saturn. If it
    shorts out internally then this will happen.

    Let me know,if needed further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

My 2000 mercury mountaineer wont start. When I try to start it every thing goes blank. I twist the battery cables and everything pops back on .

First does the battery have good charge (12v). Does the wire running into the battery terminals have complete contact with the terminals? Sometimes the wiring into the terminals fray and or slide out away from the terminal housing. It could be a few things but try those first

1983 chevy caprice classic my dashboard lights dont work and also the clock stops working when i turn the lights on

Probably bad ground in the dash circuitry. You'll have to pull it out and check all the connections. Big job.

My 2000 saturn sl wont start. it has power everything lights up. But nothing when I turn key. Happen last week and started right up a day later. happened again last night and nothing again this...

There should be a small black wire going from the battery to the starter motor. It sounds as though it has come loose.
Check it and re connect it.
I hope this works.
Good look
