In 1991 Saturn only made the SL and the SC, therefore you can not have a 91 LS or DL. However if you go to and do a search you will see videos of this being done on may different Saturns and GMs which are all pretty much the same. Prepare to find out the ignition switch is installed with theft proof screws so the whole steering column may have to be pulled in order to drill them out. Perchance you mean the lock cylinder which is much easier.

We are trying to replace a complete ignition switch on 2000 Saturn LS. We replaced the switch with a new one now the car will start but will no remain running. What have we done wrong?

You have not got the ignition wire connected somehwere. On start-up the engine is receiving power through the ballast by-pass which cuts out when in the run position, the new switch could also be faulty.

Went to start my 2001 Saturn LS and nothing happened. Battery is good. What could be the problem?

Saturns have a huge problem with the grease in the ignition switch. The never issued a recall though. The grease gets so thick and hard when it is cold, that the electrical contacts do not move with the key, and therefore either a: do not connect the starter wire, or b: the antitheft system does not get the "ok" signal and it thinks you are stealing your own car, and disables the starter and fuel pump. If I were the owner of your car, replacing the ignition switch is what I would do next.

Is there more than one type of ignition coil for a 1999 sL2

All saturn engines 91-99 are essentially identical 1.9L 4 cylinder, with the exception of the heads, and the engine mounts on the 91. I had both DOHC and SOHC and they all used the same coil, though there were some minor differences in base mounting. Each coil is attached to two plugs. Suppose there are GM and aftermarket types available.

I have a 1991 Saturn SL2 (SOHC) that I'm trying to get going. Replaced most of the fuel system which is good now. Tried to start and got a click sound. I assumed it was the starter. Took the starter off...

The SL2 is a DOHC, the SL1 is a SOHC. You have put more money into it already than it is worth. Seems like a free check of the crankshaft being locked up might have been a first move before expending money. There were several small improvements made to the Saturn after 91, the fist year. I would suggest looking around for a 95 where your new parts will still swap in, possibly even a 96. You can get one for less than $500 if you look around. Stay away from automatic transmissions in Saturns.

Need a diagram of the drivers side fuse block, cover is gone that lets you know what fuse/relay went to what. 2000 Saturn LS

I believe that you could use this, it's about 3MB.

It's for a 2004, but if what I've read is correct, this will also work for your 2000. Electrical system begins on 5-91, fuses and the diagrams are here too.

If this helps, please don't forget to recommend me/positive feedback! Good luck!

Before you go to all that trouble , buy a small can of WD 40 , it should come with a straw to apply in small places , spray in the keyhole, work the key in and out, spray and do this several times. this will remove the old grease and lubricate the tumblers , the freezing point of WD 40 is around - 63 degrees C.

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.
