Question about 1995 Saturn Sl
Look in the manual. Probably a little button on the kick panel in the front passenger seat, just in front of the door. It resets a relay which trips if you roll over.

Sounds like you are pretty knowledgeable with the maintenance. With that said do you know if the Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor (ECTS) has been replaced? I'd put that at the TOP of the list of parts to replace next. If it hasn't been replaced it is the cause of a lot of problems.
The factory one is plastic and cracks. When it cracks it sends the PCM a signal that the engine is -40F below zero. The PCM will compensate by dumping A LOT of fuel into the engine to try and warm it up. It will cause all kinds of starting and idling problems.
Autozone or the dealer sells the better brass tipped one. The ECTS is located just under and behind the upper radiator hose. You'll need to remove the air intake tubing to see it or get to it. It has two wires going to it and goes into a connector. Squeeze the connector at the "ears" and it will come off. A 10MM DEEP well socket will take it out. Swap it quickly because some coolant will come out (a couple of ounces). Hand tighten it and snug it with the socket (not too much because it will strip out). Connector back on (either direction it's non polar). Put the intake back on and enjoy better starting and idling.

Testimonial: "thank you very much. youve been most helpful and i will let you know how it works out for me as soon as i replace the ects"
sometime a used trany needs to be driven, its been sitting, the valve body drys up and sometimes things stick,with a used trany you should always replace the oil and filter before running, after driving for a few days shifting should get smoother, good luck.

Could be the switches inside the steering wheel. But much easier to swap the relay first and remove it as a possibility. You can also jump 12 volts directly from the battery to the horn with a long heavy wire just to make sure the horn is good. Saturn relays are to the left of the passenger's knee
behind a velcro fastened panel.
