I have a 01 Saturn L 300 with the 3.0 with approximately 176,000 miles. My dash where the CD player and heater controls are was kicked it smashing them. The problem I am having is right after that happened my battery seemed like it was dead. No lights nothing. I just tried to jump start it and it will turn over but will not catch and fire up. I double checked fuel pressure and fuel pump and both work fine. Would it possibly be the security kicking in or some other problem? Any ideas on what it may be an how to fix it? Please and thank you!

  1. Sounds like you might want to start with a new battery. Some vehicle computers won’t work properly unless they have a good 13 volts going to them. If your current battery has an internal short it can cause the computer to not operate keeping it from allowing the injectors to fire.

    Check for spark and fuel injector pulse.

    If you have spark, try spraying starting fluid in the air filter to see if it will run.
