My grandmother recently gave me her 99 saturn sl2 (50,000 miles) as she purchased a jeep for herself. The car was very well kept, and checked religously for problems, however as luck has it, the problems are arising now that it is mine.
as I write this the car is sitting over at a jobsite due to the fact that it won't start. I shut it off for two minutes and returned to find it would not restart. Everything works fine the radio etc (except for the dome light which hasn;t worked since I got it. Though I have not had time to check the bulb.) The last time this happened (about a week ago) I let it sit for about 5 minutes, turned the key to acc. Put the car in neutral and turned the key; started right up. This time is the exception. It has a new battery and the cables are fine. I cleaned the ground as it looked dirty but still didn;t fix the problem. What might this be?
2) when driving and applying the brake the interior lights on the radio the odometer, etc. Become brighter until the brake is released. What is this?
3) door open chime refuses to go off if the drivers door is open (no key in ignition)
obviously the first question warrants the quickest response. The other two have not seemed to cause any problems except dreaming of chiming. Very annoying.
alas I thank you in advance for any response. Appreciate it very much.
have the same problem?
