Customer Question
It will not start...

It will not start or turnover. Good battery and alternator. Just replaced battery cables... ???

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

No

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Saturn?

2004 Vue

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

It has an ignition interlock device that registered a voltage spike that messed up the unit. Got the unit fixed, now, the Vue won't start.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

It will make a slight click when the key is turned but it doesn't try to even start.

I have an ignition interlock installed that "blew up" on me. Found out it was a voltage spike from the installers of the ignition interlock. Got it reprogrammed. It started and drove home, but the next time we went to start it, nothing. The negative battery cable had been loose. Replaced the cable ends. Now, it still won't start. Checked for loose connections and didn't see any. I'm thinking relay but not sure.

Good battery and alternator. Can hear a slight click when the key is turned, but that's it.
