    Sounds like the altenator is going out. most models of cars have a warning senser on the altnator that makes a grinding noise before it goes out. you can have it tested free and relace it yourself as it is easier then it looks like

DASH AND RADIO LIGHT UP AFTER DRIVING A FEW


This can be very bad. First thing is to check the water level in the battery immediately. Second is to get a new voltage regulator. On your car I believe the regulator is internal to the alternator.

Battery wont charge, battery/ABS/SRS/BRAKE lights come on while driving and flicker. voltage increases to dash lights/fan speed/headlights periodically.


Get a volt meter, start your car and see how many volts your car is producing while running. Should be around 14 volts. May want to watch the meter for a while since your electric seems to fluctuate. Most voltage regulators are internal of your alternator. If you are getting a lot more or less than 14 volts while running, replace the alternator. If it is not charging, voltage will drop as vehicle runs, until battery is dead.

I would check the key switch first to make sure all circuits have power with the key on.
There is a fuse for the cluster too.

95 saturn cuts out


Oh yeah. Owned a 95 SC1 for five years myself with a 1.9L I believe engine. These cars require that the ECM be set right or "else." To reset the computer, you will need to unhook both battery cables, wait about 15 minutes and rehook. See if this makes a difference in how it runs. If not, you may have dirty fuel injectors or fuel filter.

Battery and break indicator showed up and power steering went out all at the same time


Are you sure the drive belt is still on the engine ?
The battery light usually comes on when the alternator is not charging the battery, and the power steering is also belt driven.
The brake warning light can come on when the brake fluid is low, but also when the battery light comes on.

Lights are dem, replaced battery


If you are talking about the illumining lights on dash board, that can be turned up. If head lights are dim then you may need to have the charging system check should be at-least 14 volts with car running. You can take this vehicle to an Auto_Zone they would check the system for FREE. Good Luck contact me if you need more help.
