Re: 00 sl2 stereo wiring loom

That looks like the generic 90's GM adapter ('91-'99 S-Series), not the generic 00's GM adapter ('00-'02 S-Series).

Re: Saturn Performance Advice

Energy Suspension for the bushing kit, front & rear. I believe the front sway bar to control arm bushing should stay OEM rubber, the ES stuff wears out pretty quick in that location.

Re: Manual Fan Switch

The only button of the 3 that is an actual switch is the defroster switch. You can wire it up to the TRAC button if you want, but the fan will only be on while you hold the button down.

Re: Manual Fan Switch

You run the switch through a custom programmed Arduino which then turns on the fan. It's not a 'lock' on/off switch, it's a momentary switch...

Re: (Sarcoxiechick ) Manual transmission trouble - '98 SL2

Pretty sure you have 3 main options, not counting internal transmission failure of some kind:

Clutch Slipping
Hydraulics Failed
CV Axle broke in half (not likely for a '91-'99 because they...

Re: armrest install?

They wern't made of the best plastic back in the day and it's only gotten worse from then.

Pretty much any S-Series model '95-'99 *could* have the extended arm rest in them that would work for...

Re: Best Tires for Handling & Rain Traction? - '98 SC2

My experience says for wet traction you want more of a "V" pattern than the typical 2-4 rain grooves the tire media wants us to think is amazing.
My first experience with this phenominum was with...

Re: Manual to power steering swap? JY SC2 suspension? Straightforward?

Everyone claims that, yet when I tried to put a NV7 pump on a '97 SC1 I had to swap the bracket to the engine as well because NONE of the bolt holes lined up with the pump...they were all either...

Re: Manual to power steering swap? JY SC2 suspension? Straightforward?

It's a 2 wire sensor, bat & ground. Give it a 5a or under feed and manually switch the ground. Should be easy to cut off the pigtail when you're taking the pump. I don't know what it actually...

Re: Manual to power steering swap? JY SC2 suspension? Straightforward?

SL default option was a manual steering rack.
SL1/SC1/SW1/SWP only option was power steering with no "off" setting. 0mph or have FULL power assist 100% of the time...

Re: 99 SC2 ABS light

There should be an ABS bulb '91-'02.
3 reasons for the red brake light: p-brake sensor, low fluid, ABS fubar.

1 & 3 I'd ignore (had bad luck with ABS in the S-Series, best to pull the fuse and...

Re: 2001 SW2 manual: starter won't engage - no solenoid click

Take a test light or DMM and check for power at the purple wire and the battery/alternator terminal on the starter.

If both have power, the starter is effectively dead (probably 'just' the...

Re: Valve Body Mystery Connector Leak

The auto's don't have a vent.

Fluid level should be in the "ok" range, not to the top of the 'full'.

Re: What GM cars beside saturn had the trunk mounted CD changer?

Pretty much any GM car with the same connector as the S-Series ('89-'99 cars for sure, both my '00 and '01 Silverado's also use it) they could potentially have a compatible changer.
