2002 Saturn SL2, Green Fusible Wire

That wire carries the current to charge the battery. If it breaks, the battery voltage will drop and the car will not run correctly, if at all. It may start and run for a few seconds then cut off.

Sounds like the alternator / voltage regulator is malfunctioning or there is a bad connection to / from the alternator / battery.

Do you have a multimeter so you could test the alternator -- or could you take the car to a parts store such as Auto Zone where they could test the alternator for you ?

How to replace a crank center sensor on a 2001 saturn sl2 My car used to start but for some reason it didn't charge my battery and now it won't even start. Thanks.

In order for the battery to charge, the alternator has to be good and keep the battery charged. If the car has been sitting, the battery is most likely dead, and you may be able to jump start it, but even if it starts, the alternator will need to be changed. When you say "it won't start" do you mean the engine will turn over but not start or it won't turn over at all?

I have a 2001 Sl Saturn that i cant get power to alternator

Check your Belt Tensioner. If the Belt Tensioner is Not Holding the Belt Tight Enough The Alternator will not Charge the Battery Fully and Could Cause your Check Engine Light. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

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
