Customer Question

Names Thom and having problems with ignition on my 2002 saturn l200
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Two weeks ago my car would not start, battery seems completely dead. Called auto club, they jumped me and it started. Bought a new battery and things were fine for the two weeks til two days ago and when I tried starting it, seemed like battery really low, jumped it with battery charger and drove around then turned it off. waited a few minutes and started it up fine. Today went out and it didn't want to start, but tried several times and it started, two hours later it would not start. But after tring to start it and turning key off and even removing the key, there is a sound , seems to be coming from behind the radio , radio turned off, the only thing I can think the sound sounds like is something mechanical resetting itself.

Hello, my name is***** for the question. most of the time this is caused by a bad ignition switch or a bad body conrol module. Most of the time it i the ignition switch itself. Have these been tested?
