Having problems with your 1997 Saturn SL ?
Having some power issues. Need help with this one! First, dash lights are flickering. Thinking it's most likely the alternator ( Voltage regulator)? Secondly and MOST importantly, sometimes, when I go to turn the key to on, I have a total power loss. Strangest thing is, when I open and close the drivers side door, it resets and power is restored. Go to turn the key to on again, no power. Once in a while I can time it just right, open and close the door while turning the key, starting the car. PL
Check the starter. The starter draws so much power when you attempt to crank the car.A bad starter will drain the hell out of a batter even damage it. Does it make a clicking sound when you attempt to start it if it does and the car wont start start with checking the battery and starter.Hope this helped GOOD LUCK
