If the car turns over when turning the key but never actually fires up it could be a broken timing belt.

I put a new radio in my 1998 Saturn SL2 and now it wont start. The starter clicks repeatedly. What's the problem? Someone said the security system my need to be reset. If so, how do I reset it?


If the starter rapidly clicks when the key is held in the crank position than the battery is low on charge. This may have happened if you had the doors open while installing the radio and the dome light/interior lights where on. Try jumpstarting the vehicle. If it starts drive it for at least 1/2 hour before shutting it off. That should give the alternator enough time to charge the battery for the next time you start it. If you have any questions let me know.

I have a 98 saturn sw. Replaced the alternator, there's a wire, thick looks like it goes to the starter? Didn't take this wire off, don't know where it goes. possibly called the B wire. Alternator reading...


There is a heavy red wire that connects to the only terminal on the back of the alternator. The starter should have a smaller purple wire connected to the starter solenoid. A red (positive) battery cable connects to the top terminal of the starter solenoid. There also may be smaller red wires connected to the solenoid at the same connection where the heavy red battery cable connects. Hope this helps

My saturn was running fine. I shut it off and returned minutes later and the car wouldn't start. It wouldn't even crank over. I tried jumping it but still nothing. I have power, no turn over. Could it be...


bad connections at the battery. This happened to my 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais. Had it towed to an electric shop thinking it needed a starter, battery, or alternator.

They cleaned the ends, and that fixed it.

I would start by rechecking the connections assuming the battery and starter are alright.

Wire brush until shiny as new.

98 saturn sl runs fine for a week or two, then stalls and wont restart. Sometimes it will start after a few hours, sometimes it wont start for 3-4 weeks. We have replaced the alternator, starter, ignition...


have your battery checked,sometimes when we fix the charging problem we over look the battery.if it was damaged from the alternator being bad and it was not recharged properly then is can be broken inside.you can not see this.a load test on the battery will show this damage.

2002 Saturn SL1 - won't start, turn over, starts fine with jump


Have the alternator and battery checked. The battery may not be holding a charge. The alternator may not be charging the battery,it should put out between 14 and 15 volts,any less the alternator is bad.

98 saturn sl1 won't start


If the problem occurs after the car has been driven long enough to reach normal operating temperature, the problem is the starter. If the 'no crank' occurs cold, retest the battery.

98 saturn sl2 won't start


if all it does is click with a new battery it is not the alternator because all the alternator does is charge the battery i would take the starter or selinoid off if it isnt built in with the starter and have it tested the same as you did the battery

98 saturn sl1 won't start


if you have good battery voltage at this time, and when you banged on the starter and then the car cranked over, it would appear you have a defective starter. i would imagine if you replaced it in july of last year that it could still be under some sort of warranty, so i would look into that. either way, it sounds as if you need a new starter.
