Having problems with your 2002 Saturn S-Series ?

I have a Saturn SL1 2002 (Automatic). Twice before in the last three weeks the car did not start. I put it in neutral and then managed to start it. Today, it simply will not start anymore. All lights up. I hear the fuel pump turn on but no the starter does not turn. I have been wondering about these possible causes: 1. Linkage between transmission shifter and ignition 2. System that identifies the chip in the key and then allows it to start 3. Ignition system itself Any ideas?

Answers :

Your problem is the NSS neutral safety switch which saturn loves to call a transmission range sensor. if you remove your battery and air ducting you'll have access to the sensor which is top side mounted on your transmisson, it has 3 cable harnesses on it. is secured by 2 bolts only. you'll need a multimeter to make sure you have it set TDC top dead center. if it is TDC, when set the car to drive the sensor should read absolute 0 on the multimeter just remember the ebrake.
