No crank no start, crank and no start
I wanted to post this experience with a 99 Saturn SW2 with over 150k.
My sister had an issue with this car where she would start it when cold, it would idle rough and stall out. Then, it would not restart. If you revved the engine, it would not stall. When hot, there was no issue. It would flood the engine and you could smell the fuel not being burned. I ended up replacing the ECTS and had no issue since. They did call a mechanic out prior and he took off the valve cover, did this and that and charged $125.00 and still no start. The next day, it starts up. This was prior to the ECTS sensor.
Fast forward 4 months later, there is an intermittent no crank no start. At one point, the car was jumped and coincidentally started. Suspects were the factory alarm, possibly neutral safety switch, ignition switch or starter. Cycling through the gears did not help start. So, a test light was used on the starter solenoid and it lit up when the key was turned to start, so it was the starter. A tap of the starter and it fired up. I replaced it with NAPA's $154.00 premium rebuilt starter, no issue yet. When the car was started, the lights did not did and there was no clicking noises under the hood. I'm guessing it was the solenoid, but the starter was original so it was time for replacement. If the starter motor was bad, wouldn't the lights dim?
If you have a no start on your S Series SC1, SC2, SL1, SL2, SW1 or SW2 this might help you out.

Have you read the sticky at the top of this page?
Also, be sure to look at the youtube posts by richpin06a. He's got a bunch of really useful hints/how-to videos on things just like this.
