Customer Question

started it this morning and it ran for 1-2 seconds and shut off and now it won't start it just turns over
JA: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?
Customer: No
JA: What is the model/year of your Saturn?
Customer: 2008 XE
JA: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Just tried to restart it and it turned over but would not engage. simply took a different vehicle to work. Got to thinking that maybe it was the anti-theft device because have not had a problem starting this car ever.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
