We have a 2000 Saturn SL1 we started it yesterday and it died went to start it again and it wouldn't start it he security light came on the file gage won't move but it has a full tank of gas

Many times the lock cylinder fails to detect the key and so it shuts the car off. Other times the master relay goes bad which happens on older Hondas and it can cause the same problem. I would locate the master relay, tap it with a wrench and see if it starts. If so its the relay and relatively cheap to replace. If its the lock cylider then its much more costly. If the key liggt blinks normal when you start the car but then it dies out randomly or wont start, then its the lock cylinder failing to read the security key. Also remove any thing attached to the key that may be heavy.

Do you hear the fuel pump running on the prime cycle (when you turn on the key) (runs for 3 seconds) or when you have oil pressure?Have someone listen back by the tank for the wrrrrr.If you do have to change the fuel pump,make your life easy and just tilt up (lift) the pickup box from the drivers side to access the fuel pump.Takes 20 minutes to change it that way.

1999 PONTIAC BONNEVILLE SE wont start security lights come on windows wont work, had it happen once b4 thought was out of gas put gas in still same waited an hour started right up, never had prob again...

Had the same problem. Took it to local guy and he put it on the computer and found the wire running underneath the driver side floor mat had gone bad. Had to do with the security shut-off, which this wire affected. Replaced that wire, and the car has been running great ever since - happened 19 months ago.

I ran out of gas in my car, so I put $5 gas in the car and it didn't start, so I added another $5 gas in in again and it still won't start, we tried boosting it and it won't start so i don't know what is...

Dont touch the gas pedal or it might flood and not start. Have someone spray a little starting fluid in the Air filter tube while you try to start it.

Sounds like you have either a bad fuel pump or a leak in the line somewhere. With a leak in the line it will take a long time for the gas to get up toward the engine. When it sits over night the gas line empties back into the tank and the process starts all over again

On return trip from Ohio vehicle would crank but not fire. Ran perfectly before. Mech said was vapor lock. got it started and home but now won't start again.

unscrew the gas cap and try to start it with the gas cap off. If it starts, then you did have another vapor lock. It might not happen again but to be sure you should get a new gas cap.

96 Jeep cherokee ran out of gas, re-fuel, won't start. No spark.

You may have to prime the fuel pump. Or replace the fuel pump if that does not work. Why do you let it run out of gas? This is definately not good for an injected motor. It will continue to cause more and more problems. Fuel injectors should never run dry.
