This problem has been addressed by Saturn Mel-bourne and Stuart/Jensen Beach, Fla. My friend has paid all the trucking involved. Accordingly the 2 dealerships have done everything imaginable in troubleshooting the problem, starter ck, did's? Codes etc. The owner (she) is out about $1,200 (+ trucking) & the vehicle (Apx. $5,200.00) sits in their back yard and (owner) out of money. According to my (web) research this appears to be a rather common problem with Saturn (Not starting). I am to the point of hoping there is a class action process to be considered. Five grand is a lot of money to this family.
Do you
have the same problem?

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.

There was No "intermittant" experience with the car NOT starting. The occasion happened once and once only. I will check on the rest of your questions ASAP.

Make sure ur the battery cables are clean and tight also. If this only happened once then this problem finding it will be like winning the big lotto.
