Saturn Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi. Do you have a security light on the dash that blinks fast or stays on while the key is in the ON position?
Ok. Since the all the electronics seem to work, you could have a failed starter. Do you have a test light to check for power at the starter?
Ok. DO you have power on 2 terminals of the relay with the key on?
The relay has 2 power circuits to it. Then when the key is turned the computer grounds one of them and the relay sends power to the starter.
A computer can fail like that but it sounds more like a fuse blown. A blown fuse can cause lack of communication to the module. ANd would be more sudden to fail like what happened. You should check all the fuses under the hood and inside the car with a test light for best results.
Ok. Do the brake lights work?
Ok. You are going to have to do something at this point. Check the brake lights, check ALL the fuses in the car and under the hood, check for power to the starter relay.
