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.

What does it mean when the security warning light is on , saturn 2000 sl1

The security, antitheft, or passlock light is a visual indication that something in the car's antitheft system is failing. In most GM cars and trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists. From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM (Theft Deterrent Module). These 3 parts are in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, the car misinterperates this as an attempt at theft and goes into antitheft mode. The car thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is not getting that signal from YOUR specific key. This is why the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle.
This link may help you find ways to bypass this or fix it yourself.

2000 saturn sl1 it start and die and you got to the key off and back on and it start and die

This sounds like a broken or failing antitheft security system. Gm vehicles are known for this problem. Look for a light on the dash when this happens. It will say SECURITY, ANTITHEFT, or look like a car with a padlock thru it. When this system fails, the car will run for 5 seconds or less and then shut off, thinking that it is being stolen. This link explains this problem.

Hello: This could be a pass-lock problem. If the security light is flashing you may have to replace the ignition lock cylinder and housing.

'98 Saturn SL1 won't start. Alarm system behaving strangely. Have power, turn key-nothing. Then it will start for no reason. Drove it home (20 miles), shut it off and it won't start again. Changed battery...

I had this same exact problem in a family member's Saturn. If you are opening the door with the key and not using the key FOB to unlock the doors, then the security system will not allow you to start the car. You will notice when this happens that the dome light will blink and you'll hear the relay in the BCM clicking.

In order to stop the security system from doing this: Make sure the car is locked with the key fob by hitting the lock button. Then hit the unlock button on the key fob once and then once again (I do it out of habit). Then open the driver side door, put the key in and it should start no problem.
