H​I, my name is***** for the delay. I'll do my best to help you. I know your concern well. I have fixed many Saturn cars for this type of issue. Saturn had many issues with BCMs in the early 2000s. The BCM on your model (as well as all Saturns back then) controll basically ALL interior electrical components. If you replace your BCM, this should take care of your problem. I recommend getting a NEW BCM and having a dealer install and program it for you. I've seen more problems than I can count with used BCMs. The new BCM will cost more but it will save you a lot of headaches and money. I hope this helps. Anything more I can do for you?

What that light means with car And wrench if There is acheck engine light already . what is the differnce between lights
Saturn Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

from what I understand the dealer wrench light is for dealer options on the car. Things such as power windows, locks, power steering, cruise control, keyless entry, alarm , abs etc..... but I have seen it come on due to electrial issues as well kind of redundant with the check engine light really.

But when that light comes on the car starts to buck or maybe it's back firing not sure but it is a lack of power and gets worse when pushing pedal down
