2001 Saturn SL2 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 130000 miles
My 2001 Saturn SL2 has had this problem for several weeks. When the car is cold it starts with no problem. After the car runs for any amount of time (a few minutes to a few hours), the car will not start immediately, and I must wait 1-3 hours before the car starts again.
When the problem occurs and the car will not start, there is no starting sound from the starter and the engine does not crank. When the key is turned to the run or ignite positions, the electrical devices inside of the car turn on, but it seems like the starting system does not activate. Several people have suggested a problem with a solenoid.
This issue became more urgent this morning. The car started normally, but after driving about 40 feet, the car shut down. The car would not restart as mentioned above.
have the same problem?
