Do you have a code reader that gives live data? A reader that gives data will show rpm while cranking indicating the crank sensor is working. The one I bought was about $85.00, my Snapon red brick will not work on my can 06 Lincoln Navigator. These are strictly OBDII readers not manufacturer specific code readers. I can read live data and codes with the reader I bought from Napa.

Hello again,

Been busy. Finally got time to work on the Saturn. Got a new ignition switch and installed it. Nothing at all. No crank no start no passlock blinking nothing. Reinstalled the old part and we have crank again but still no start.

Have you checked the crank position sensor? Without it your engine won’t start

Finally got it. A while back we had a miss. The code said CPS. We changed it but no go. It ultimately was the ICM but in the process of changing the CPS I broke off the keeper on the connector and it worked its way off. No CPS no start. Reconnected it and wrapped it with electrical tape. Hope it holds.

Thanks for the help.

Any way to use a zip tie on that connector? Much more secure than electrical tape.

I agree there, if you don’t get a zip tie or something mechanical on there to hold the connector, you’ll be left with a no start condition again at some point, likely at the most inopportune time...
