2001 Saturn radio reset after battery change

My girlfriend had the battery replaced in her 2001 Saturn L100 a few months ago. The factory radio has not worked ever since. I verified that it is getting power, as the the clock works and the display lights up etc. I read & followed all the steps in the owners manual and I get an ERR1 message on the display. She has not set the theft deterrent feature on the radio. She said it happened once before when she went for service a couple years ago. She said she took it back to the shop and they did something quick to get it working again.

    The radio won't work. It just displays the time.

  • mikes73z Mar 03, 2008

    No, not working now. I was looking for instruction on the procedure to get it working after a power failure.

  • mikes73z Mar 03, 2008

    I saw this solution on the Saturn site earlier today. I'm not sure it will work because I'm getting an "ERR1" on the display, not "LOC" or "INOP" an in the instructions.

  • mikes73z Mar 03, 2008

    That err1 thing was really bugging me. She bought the car used, so it's entirely possible the original owner keyed in a code that we don't know anything about. I'll give these procedures a try this weekend when I see her again.
    Thanks for the good information and your help!

    The err1 indicates that the theft deterent lock is active, try the procedure to see of you can get a code returned, if it does return a code then call the 1-800 number and get an unlock code, enter the code and your radio should work.

    the dash radio module has a small button ,
    by pressing the tuner panel will pop out...showing some connector leads....

    try to clean the dirt off that and replace it again....
    also check if the connector is properly plugged in...it may also due to loose connections..

2001 saturn L100 hard starting when cold


Have load test run on battery. Your cranking amps maybe low. If your battery is over 3-4 years old then thats more than likely your problem

When the battery is good dash lights come on but no start no cranking of starter


Check battery connections, make sure they clean and tight. Often there is enough connection for a light but not good enough to pull high amp starter.

Where is the fuel relay switch on a 2002 saturn L series


You have a fuse / relay box under your hood. My 2002 L100 special edition, 4 cylinder, is located near the battery. You have a relay and a fuse in series. A fuel pump operations check, section 4-3 of the Haynes Saturn L-series 2000 to 2004 manual, you can hear a soft whirring sound for 1 to 2 seconds when you turn the ignition to the ON position. I can confirm mine makes this sound when I do this. Good luck with the fix.

Note, I had a crack in my fuel pump, but I took it to an ex-Saturn dealer 4 or 5 years ago because I did not want to mess with it at the time. They had the part and fixed it in 4 hours, but it also cost me $1000 to replace the fuel pump and install a new fuel filter.

I have the Nikon Coolpix L100 camera and have had it for several months without encountering a single problem. I got a message saying that the batteries were exhausted and it shut down. I replaced the...


I have the same problem with my Coolpix L100. On 27 December 2010 after taking a few shots with flash, using rechargable batteries for one year, it displayed in Hungarian that the batteries are depleted, but after I have recharged them, the camera did not start again anymore, displaying in continue that the batteries are depleted, and it turn off itself after a few seconds. I think that the problem is with the sensor of the camera that should measure the battery status, because even if I had new batteries it desplayed an icon with half battery but I never let it depleted totally so far. Now I am wondering if NIKON will offer free service for it as I have bought it just about 16 months ago in the Romanian DOMO market chain.

Have your saturns battery checked out by load testing it. The charging system as well. Most auto part dealers will do this for you....Kragens, Napa, Autozone...Inspect and clean battery cables and terminals, replace as needed.
Good luck..i hope this helps, please rate me a fixya.
