Check security light, if it is flashing , it is set. try this, turn ignition on, don't try to start, let set for ten minutes on. turn off don't take the key out. do this three times ten minutes each, after the third time turn it off, then try to start. This resets the security. If this does not work, then it needs reprogrammed to the new computer you installed. dealer only, about $100.00

    light is on steady thanks for the info. its like it's not getting enough fuel to run

    Anyway you can check the fuel pressure? Also you might try pulling the fuelpump relay and jumping pin # 30 and # 87. 30 is hot and 87 is the wire to the fuel pump, also 85 is hot and 86 is the wire to the computer. there is a schematic on the side of the relay.

You will have to take it to the Dealer. You may have burnt out or the "Control Module" needs to be replaced or reprogrammed. Make sure the battery has not reversed polarity also.

Saturn jumper cables hooked up backwards


Try charging the battery more. Even though your lights may come one, starting a vehicle requires massive amounts of amperage from the batter. It's possible that your jumper cables aren't a thick enough guage to supply enough power as well. Sometimes the vehicle you're jumping from might not have enough power to support your vehicle's starting power requirements.

One of my guys hooked up a battery tender backwards to an '02 C230 Kompressor. These cars are finneky to begin with but now it has a whole new world of quirks. Which modules/relays do i start with?


Check out the ECM and cpu as connecting a battery (Jumper) incorrectly damages the electronics which causes all the symptoms you describe.. You may have to get a new unit

Connecting jumper cables the wrong wat around most likely has damaged electronic components such as a radio and computer.
Check the fuse box and replace any blown fuses.
If you still have problems then get an auto electrician to fix your car.

The cart wont click over dont know anything bout cars so i need to find out if my starter or my alternator went out and sure my battery i need a new one because the car used to click over till we hooked up...


First if the jumper cables were hooked up backwards you could have killed your battery, which was probably dead to begin with. Get a new one then try and start. If it doesnt look more into the ignition switch than the starter. Alternator has nothing to do with starting, it could be bad and not charging the battery but will not cause your car not to start.

Battery needed a charge, it was jumped with cables hooked up wrong, bought new battery but wont start what is problem


if you connected the jumper leads up wrongly you have most likely put 24 volts into the system instead of 12 volts & damaged all of the electric components including the computer, you will need to consult an auto electrician to sort out the problem.....hope this helps.....cheers
