Question about 2008 Saturn Sky
SOURCE: Saturn SL2
I had a similar problem on my 94 SL2. Turn the key…..Nothing.
Even worse, it was intermittent, the worst type to troubleshoot.
At first it was rare. Pulling out the key , putting it back in and turning usually worked.
Over time it got progressively worse and stubborn.
Then one day it wouldn’t start for anything.
My car has an alarm with a ‘starter kill’. My first thought, alarm malfunction. So I located the two wires (they can be any color) going from the alarm module to the steering column. They are usually labeled appropriately on the module. I used a small jumper wire (alligator clips) to short them at the alarm. If the alarm was the problem, this would fix it. It didn’t.
Time to take apart the steering column.
The key tool will be a 7 or 8mm socket. Take off the two piece steering column shroud to expose the wiring.
On the left side, directly opposite the ignition, you’ll see a piece of round plastic held on with two bolts. This is really the ignition switch.
Take out the bolts (again 7 or 8mm).
Take out the two plugs (blue and white) from behind it.
Take off the switch.
Plan A: (For most people)
Replace this. Bring it with you to the parts store to compare it.
Bring it home. Bolt it on. Plug it in. Turn the key.
I can’t tell you how much it was , since I used …
Plan B: (For the deservedly cocky)
I took the switch apart and cleaned the contacts.
They were burnt. I scraped them clean, re-assembled the switch and tested it.
If you need me to explain Plan B, use Plan A.
Hope this helps, let me know how it goes. Any other problems, click the ASK button.

SOURCE: had to buy keyless entry
I just bought one for mine too! The guy who sold it to me gave me these directions but I haven't tried them yet! Am going to on my lunch hour! Hope they work for us both :)
Forgot to put prog. instructions.in with your fob so here they are.
1.Find the ETACS unit under the steering wheel first,there is a small switch onit.
2.Once the switch is located make sure your key is not in the ignition and set the switch from off to set.
3.Press keyfobs door lock button for one second, this sends the codes to the ETACS and stores it.
4.Do the same thing if you have 2 remotes for the vehile.
5.Now set the ETACS switch from set to off.
6.Remotes should now be programed.

You can take it back to the dealer, and have them change the battery, or go to Autozone, buy the battery and do it yourself. They can show you how to do it. And which battery it takes. It's not hard to do. Good luck.
