Saturn Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi Im David. when you try to start the vehicle, does the security light go off or stay on?
ok, so its not a security/theft issue.
has the vehicle been actin up at all lately? taking longer to start? running rough?
ok, lets try this. make sure the battery cable terminals and posts are corrosion free and tight. make sure the negative cable from the battery to where it attaches the the engine block is corrosion free and tight.
when it is running, do you have a check engine light on?
please do, then let me know what you find. and since there is no check engine light on, that helps narrow it down.
ok. do you have a code reader?
ok, well do the cleaning and tightening of the battery,alternator and starter cables, and engine ground, then let me know what you have found...........
any kind of corrosion and looseness on those will definitely cause intermittent and sometimes continuous problems.......
Hello and welcome to Justanswer!
If the engine cranks but doesn't start then it's not going to be a security related issue. You could be missing spark for a number of reasons, or you could be missing fuel due to a bad pump or loss of power or ground to it. Fuel contamination or an exhaust restriction are also possibilities but not as likely.
Does the fuel pump run when the key is first turned on?
do you still require assistance?
