The Saturn Fuel pump relay and fuse is located undar the panes on the passenger side of the center console near the passengers left foot there are two relays there that look identical one is fuel pump relay. Just switch them around they are bot the same and see if the fuel pump runs now also the fuel pump fuse is in there i can't send diaagrams on fixya because their program will not let them go through if you need one email me at [email protected] Please give me a fixya rating if this information is helpful to you

SOURCE: My 2000 Saturn SL2 will turn over but won't start

well sitting here in spain ,i have never seen a saturn only on the tv launching the spàce shuttle,but from the symptoms you describe ??if its car then its a number of things but i would be inclined to clean contacts on everything from the fuse ,relay,pump wiring connector on the fuel sensor assembly and put a bit of grease on all of them.If problem persists then remove the fuel sensor unit from tank and check wires from connector block to pump .If it still takes na few turns of key for pump to work then renew it .and the best of british with the spae rocket

You can check in the trunk and remove the felt cover see if there is a round panel cover that you can remove to get to the tank. If your unlucky and have to remove the tank you will have to remove the tank. The cover may be under the spare tire so pull it out. It is not to difficult to do, if you drive it till the gas is almost out you can remove the two bolts that hold the tank in place. Use wd-40 to spray on the bolts and also spray the hinges on the oppitse side of the straps. once the nuts are off drop the tank down. You will need to pull the screws off the tank filling tube so it will come down as well. drop the tank down far enough for you to get to the fuel tank sending unit. it will have philips screws holding it in place. Mark two spots with a felt tip pin, (Sharpe) white is better and mark two holes so you can line the it back up for the holes and the hoses. disconnect the fuel line and return line disconnect the battery of the car for safety then pull the wires off it can be a plug or it may have nuts on them. When you remove the nuts or screws out pull the pump out and you will have to angle the pump to get the float out. I recommend that you replace the pump and the sock on the end of the pump. Do not buy after market buy factory replacement only you only want to do this once. mark the new pump holes on the pump using the old pump as an example, will save a lot of time to get it to fit in and match and the lines will line up, tighten all screws up put the lines back on and the clamps and reinstall the tank in place. yo can use your knees to hold it in place till you get the clamps lined up and started. Screw the nuts down till tight and your set to go just hook up the battery again and your set to go.
SIde Note, Never let your car get below 1/4 of tank of fuel, the reason is gas is the coolant for the pump if it goes lower than that the pump will heat up and will burn out. Many people don't know this so I thought I would add this to your knowledge

Hi My saturn vue 2005 died on me then I check the fuel pump relay and made one that always on thats the only way it works and drive.

possible that the original fault is in the pressure regulator switch
that unit reports low fuel pressure to the ECM which activates the relay to power up the pump

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.

2000 saturn ls2 stalls and wont start for 5min to as long as 4 hours

You'll have to figure out if it is fuel or ignition related to proceed.
Is the check engine light staying on ? Have you checked the computer for trouble codes ?
Long list of possible causes including fuel pump, pump relay, coil, ignition module, and so on.

2002 saturn l series gave out of gas and wont start, fuel pump fine. Relay switch fine. Added $11 n gas, still wont start. What could be the problem?

check your fuel filter might be pluged and not allowing fuel to get through if not that check your ignition coil for spark using a screw driver pull off the coil wire and place the screw driver inside place on top of engine and have some one turn it over for you if it sparks then its something else like your igniton coil regulator or coil pack

No power to fuel pump

Check the relay. If not the relay you have a short (broken wire) grounding between the fuse block and fuel pump
