On the S model saturn depending on the year if they have a starter relay it's located under the dash on the driver side. What you are talking about on the S model saturn is the starter solenoid not the starter relay.I have never seen the solenoid available by itself iam not saying they don't sell them some where just saying I haven't seen one. If power was traced to the starter and it wasn't turning the starter on I would replace the whole starter even on my own car.A tow cost more then a whole starter even not worth taking the chance.[/Quote:7b19760696]
My saturn is 2001 SL 1, and I looked all over and didn't see any starter relay. Yesterday I was driving the car and stopped for few minutes in the town for some info. Back to the car, I try to start it and the car didn't want to start. I let the key on the igniton, turned to on position, and try to start with a wire from the starter to the positive of the battery. The car didn't start that way either, was the same like I was in the car and turn the key to start the car and nothing happen: no noise, no "click" just everything else working: radio, dash lights, etc. Turned the key to off position and try to see if I touch the positive of the battery with the wire, It will give me the noise like the car is ready to start? Nope, not a sign of starting, using that method either. I gave up trying to start with the wire, close the hood and. Decided to give one more try with the key. It worked, the car started like nothing happened.
So, those are the signs that I need to change the starter?
