My 1996 SL1 Saturn will not start, no noise but lights and radio go on. New battery & wires, steering colum and fuel relay. It will start sometimes then others not, and sometimes if I jiggle the main wire (the think one) it starts and sometimes it don't. All the wires on the right side of the motor I juggle. Im at a loss now the trans speed sensor is coding only.

Do you

Do you have a test light there easier to use you just clip the wire to the engine and and touch the point to see if the purple wire to the starter has power in the start position when it wont turn over.
