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.

Blinking security light on a Saturn. Have done the 15 minute wait, and it wokrs, but now it is constant, to where it is now 30-45 minutes. Can I disengage this option?


Your ignition key may be excessively worn. The tumblers in the ignition lock cylinder read a worn key as someone trying to steal the vehicle. Have a new key made.

Yes always try a new key 1st,Go to saturn dealer and let them cut one from the vin#,this will give you a very crisp key then use some spay liquid wrench (Get at local hardware) Spray into cylinder,then install new key.This will make the tumblers free up.Works 8 out on ten times.

Saturn LS1 2000 wants to start but won't


The fab key activates the security system in the car, the ignition pass lock may need to be reset to your ignition key's. It Takes about 30 min to do. Try resetting the pass lock to read your ignition keys. 30-Minute Learn Procedure 1. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF. 2. Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON; the vehicle will not start. 3. Observe the SECURITY tell tale light. After approximately 10 minutes, the light will turn OFF. 4. Turn OFF the ignition switch, and wait 5 seconds. 5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 - two more times - for a total of 3 cycles of 10 minutes. 3x10 = 30 minutes. The vehicle is now ready to relearn the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or passwords on the next ignition switch turn from OFF to CRANK. Important: Turn the Ignition Switch OFF. The vehicle learns the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle. 6. Start the engine. The vehicle has now learned the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password. 7. With a scan tool, clear any DTCs if needed. History DTCs will self clear after 100 ignition cycles. Without a scan tool you may have momentary starter interruptions while history clears itself. Good luck and hope this helps. The ignition keys has a resistor value for the ignition to read and after a few years the resistance may change and the Pass Lock has a had time reading it's value so you have to reset the pass lock to read the keys again.
