nope i swapped it out last night and it still didnt turn over so i got my test light and tested the fuel pump fuse and it was not getting any power when trying to crank the car so just to see i ran a wire from the ignition fuse to the fuel pump fuse and bam it started up so basically i need to figure out why the fuel pump isnt gettin power??? :angry:

it might be none of the above.

its the electrical part of the key cylinder on the column, it wears out. take off the column plastic, its on the left, white plastic harness going into it. wires are probably red, yellow, pink, etc. etc. its a common problem with Saturns.

done the swap in a few minutes on my brother's Ion. intermittent fail.

there was also a problem with saturns where in colder climates like here in wisconsin.....if it was damn cold out the car would not start at all.......


my mom found this by accident one morning she had a hot cup of coffee and she held it under the ignition and it started up!
