Default Re: I love my saturn but

You're indicating the lights dim but the starter will not make the engine rotate is this correct? This MIGHT be a bad/faulty/dirty connection, a bad battery (especially if you're getting a clicking), and if you're not cautious about oil level who knows a seized engine. As for people sending you down the path of fuel I don't know why. This will have nothing to do with the starter's inability to rotate the engine. Now IF the engine IS rotating and not STARTING than you could need to chase down fuel or ignition issues. The issue here (especially so on this thread) is people post the words "crank", and "turn over" in wrong context.
An engine that is "cranking" or "turning over" means the starter motor when energized is causing the engine to rotate.
So OP you may need to correct your actual description of this issue.
