SATURN SC1 SENSOR PROBLEM

2002 Saturn SC1 • 100,000 miles

My satern s stalled and will not start it cranks and will not start I have no spark. I check the basics I check the fuses and relays under the hood they all seem to be good can you give me a lead as to where to go to check the electrical side of the starting procedure

Most likely you have a bad crank shaft position sensor common on those cars. Do you have a multi meter to test it?

Across the terminals of the sensor with it unplugged it should be abou 800 ohms when they test bad they usually test as a open circuit let me know what you find.

Well I replaced the crank sensor without testing. (Figured while I was under there I could R& R it) No start. The crank sensor was not the culprit. Where do I go from here? Thanks
