Time to take apart the steering column.

Mine is a little older than yours. But if they are at all similar this will be easier than you think.

You'll need to remove the two piece steering column shroud (just behind the steering wheel). Screws located underneath. You may have to jockey with the column tilt and be a bit of a contortionist, but don't get frustrated. Just getting the bottom off should be enough.

On the left side, directly opposite the ignition, you’ll see a piece of round plastic held on with two bolts. This is really the ignition switch.
Take out the bolts ( 7 or 8mm).
Take out the two plugs (blue and white) from behind it.
Take off the switch.

Hope this helped.
Mike

Where is the fuel relay switch on a 2002 saturn L series


You have a fuse / relay box under your hood. My 2002 L100 special edition, 4 cylinder, is located near the battery. You have a relay and a fuse in series. A fuel pump operations check, section 4-3 of the Haynes Saturn L-series 2000 to 2004 manual, you can hear a soft whirring sound for 1 to 2 seconds when you turn the ignition to the ON position. I can confirm mine makes this sound when I do this. Good luck with the fix.

Note, I had a crack in my fuel pump, but I took it to an ex-Saturn dealer 4 or 5 years ago because I did not want to mess with it at the time. They had the part and fixed it in 4 hours, but it also cost me $1000 to replace the fuel pump and install a new fuel filter.
