Saturn Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi Im David. thanks for visiting the site. may i ask why the battery terminal were disconnected in the first place?
ok. when you try to start the car, does the red security light go out?
ok. time to check for fuses. ill get you a diagram
what engine is in that?
here are some diagrams. there are fuses in the engine compartment fuse box and on the right side of the center console i believe. anyone that says anything about ignition, battery, ecm, check them
ok, if they all look good we will try check that the fuel pump is running.
ok. now when you turn the key to the on position(not start) can you hear the fuel pump run for a few seconds. listen closely.
hissing or like a small buzzing
do you have anyone there with you?
have them stick their ear on the fuel door and listen while you turn the key to on
i believe the fuel pump access cover is under the rear seat
if you are not sure that you can hear the fuel pump then yes. what happens now if your try to start it?
ok. we really need to make sure the fuel pump is working.
do you know where the mass airflow sensor is located?
ok. it is in the engine compartment attached as part of the airtube coming from the air filter box. there should be a connector on top maybe mid way between the airfilter and where the air tube goes to the engine.
maybe this helps
now try to start the vehicle
ok. i gotta get out of this shop. ill be back on in about an hour. do you have a scan tool?
do you have a meter to check voltages?
but ya cant get there.... . when the key is in the on position does the security light flash?
ok, then that a good idea. about the security light, is it on steady then? when the key is on?
ok. are you going to attempt to go to autozone?
just checking in to see how its going
