Hi, here are some possible solutions for you. When the heater was staying on, the relay was probably stuck on. This normally indicates the relay is shorted, but this can also be caused by the body control module. When it finally stopped, it could be that the relay burned open or the 30 amp IGN 3 fuse burned under the hood. What I suggest first is to check the fuse and replace it if burned. This will probably leave the fan on again, if it was burned. Next, pull the relay out of the socket in the interior fuse box--the fan should stop. Push the relay back in--does it click? If the relay doesn't click when pulled in and out but the fan goes on and off, the relay is shorted and needs to be replaced. I'm assuming your lower blower settings don't work either. Those are a different circuit. Check the 15 amp HVAC fuse under the hood for those. If that fuse is good, the resistor has likely failed. Sorry, but I don't know where the resistor is on your car. It will be somewhere between the motor and the switch, and it's mounted in the heater housing with wires coming out--some go to the motor and some to the control panel.Take it out and inspect for heat damage. If no heat damage, check it for continuity. It's also possible that the switch is bad, but that would not cause the blower to stay on.
Please let me know what you find out and I'll be happy to guide you through the troubleshooting.

No heat but blows cold air

Not if the engine is getting up to normal temp. Could be low on coolant or a problem with the heater core or a blend door under the dash.

My brake lights wont turn on when my headlights are on

There is a recall for this condition that may be the problem. The rear tail light assemblies are being replaced because the get distorted from excessive heat causing brake light problems (lights not working, blowing fuses, ect.) The only problem is that Saturn went out of business, so you will have to contact General Motors to see what dealership to go to for recalls. I would start there. It could also be the turn signal switch since the lights go though that first and then to the brake switch.
Hope this helps. Good luck!

2003 saturn has engine light it starts fine drove to store wont restart shows a lock in the dash board after about 15 minutes it started and was able to get home any idea what is wrong and will this happen...

The passlock sensor in the ignition switch which reads your key as it is turned and sends that data to the Body Control Module did not read your key properly. Now it depends on model of Saturn you have. The Saturn Ion could have a bad ignition switch, but the Saturn L-Series could have a bad ignition housing. The Ion's are notorious for having an ignition switch issue which will cause the car not to start.

Please let me know if you need anymore info.

2001 Saturn L200 heat only blows high. A/c out.

Sounds like a possible broken/ripped/disconnected air line (hose) to the compartment.
