Ignition sylnoied is bad...

Ignition sylnoied is bad, i think

Yes alights are good, but hit the ign sw and all it does is click, try to jump it off the same results

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your SW?

2001

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your SW yourself? What have you tried so far?

That is all

Hi! Welcome to JustAnswer. Thanks for coming! I'm Ron and I'll be working with you on your question today.

When you say you are just getting a click- is this a 1-click per turn of the key? Or is it a rapid, repeating clicking?

1 click

Great! Thank-you! Please give me one moment to type out some info for you. Sit tight one minute... I'll be right back!

Ask Your Own Saturn Question

Thanks for holding!

OK- The 1-click per turn of the key is the common, tell-tale sign of a faulty Starter Solenoid. On this vehicle, the solenoid is mounted to the starter motor and is usually replaced as a starter motor assembly (the new starter comes with a new solenoid, it's just cheaper and easier this way). Carefully inspect the connections at the solenoid and make sure they are tight and are not oil-soaked. If no problems are found, replacing the starter motor will solve the problem.
