Sattech9. Today I actually saw the car and talked with the owner. It is a Saturn L300, V6 with anti-theft. On the day of infamy, owner got in the car,
inserted key, turned key and NOTHING happened.
Just like the same (as if) you turned a key and (later) came to find out (that) there was absolutly NO battery in the car. SAME THING.
PRIOR to this occasion (actually noticed in night driving) she did not say how MANY times, she experienced "DIMMING" of the DASH lights (and possibly the headlights) but the car "continued" to function in all manner "otherwise". A service manager brought this (dimming) to her attention by showing her a service "bulletin" about this "dimming: issue.
