I would check what KHLow2008 said to check that bulletin your refering too is what I was thinking also I have seen a loose terminal F5 cause all kind's issue's. On the backside of inside fuse box there is a black 68 way connector. It's held in place by a 7MM bolt loose that bolt remove the connector bring it too you. Look at the terminal's that go into the fuse box.F5 is going to be the big red fat wire going to the connector on the outer edge of the connector. See if the terminal is open compare it to others to see what it's suppose to look at. It say's to replace the terminal but I have had success using a small pick and closing the terminal like it's supposed to be. Let me know what yo find. Also your car doesn't have a bcm saturns didn't have those until 2000. Here is a coppy of that bulletin.
