Question about 2005 Saturn L-Series

1 Answer

I have a Saturn L200. The car will start for about 2 sec. and then dies. I've put a new battery in and fuel injector cleaner. I started for a little bit yesterday, however it won't start now. The fuel pump is working and there is plenty of pressure in the fuel line. Can you please help me?

I'm experiencing the same things with my '03 l200. My mechanic replaced the fuel pump about 3 times before finally telling me it was the body control module. It will cost me about $260. On top of the problems you mentioned, my car also doesn't register miles in the odometer, and the dashboard lights flicker. He said all this was because of the faulty body control module.

Will a faulty BCM prevent vehicle from starting? New fuel pump and filter. Injectors are good but owner now telling me the gauges have been wacky for couple months. Engine fan not working, fuel gauge

The car should be throwing codes. The check engine light would be on. Disconnect battery for 30 minutes, reconnect, drive, and see if there is any issue. The BCM should not be at issue here. BODY Control Module.

The car starts and runs for 2 or 3 sec. then dies

Was the fuel system flushed of all old fuel ? do that. This included the lines and the filter and the fuel injectors. Use a product called "CHEMTOOL" it is made by Berrymans and available at any auto parts store.

the security system need to be reset, plug your charger back on the battery then turn the ignition switch on and leave it on untill the security warning light turns off (about 10 to 20 Min) then turn the key to off wait 5sec then turn the car on it should be good to go, this solves this kind of problem 9 out of 10. good luck

My saturn L200 starts then dies, i leave it for a while the problem goes away,

Start by checking/replacing the fuel filter. Then check your fuel pump pressure when the car is warm. Sounds like the fuel pump is weak.

You should try re-learning the pass-lock system first. Turn the key to the on position and leave it on for 10 min, or until the security light goes out. Turn the key off for at least 30 sec. Turn the key back on, very important not to turn too far and bump the starter, for another 10 minute cycle. Do this 3 times for a total of 30 min. After the 3rd cycle it should start.

Well I would go with the fuel injector diagnosis, if the issue isn't that then they gave you a free injector. But what about the MAF??
