Question about 2006 Saturn L300

1 Answer

Driving lights flickering

I took my 2001 Saturn L300 to the dealership, the said it was some kind of sensor (?body sensor) and would cost $500.00 plus to fix. This seems outragious. Any ideas what sensor he's talking about and is it possible I can replace this myself?

The car needs a body control module. if you try to replace it yourself the car will not run, it needs to be programed by the dealer.

I have a 2007 z71 tahoe that dealership says needs to have to replace my throttle body sensor at it will cost me $750.00 or so to fix. Is that correct amount. Seems pretty high.

No it should't cost that much. Its just a sensor that unplugs and probably has 2 screws holding it in place. Go to Napa and buy one then pop the hood and look around until you find what looks like the part you just bought. Then replace it.

Body module replaced but only partially functional, has been to several shops but no one seems to communicate effectively with the new module. Is there someone in this area who is good with saturn...

When you replace modules they have to be programmed to your car. A BCM will partially work, but not completely until it's programmed. I only know of dealerships that do this, I yet to find a garage that has the equipment to do this. Usual cost to program is around $100.00

How much does a water pump cost for a 2001 saturn L300 4 door? And how much do u think it would cost to put one in? How much for everything? parts and labor? Just an estimate would be nice

Well, depending on the shops mark-up and labor rate, you're looking at 3 hours labor and about $80 for the water pump. Plus antifreeze at about $15.99/ gallon. So I'd say between $350-400.

Sound like your Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) has an issue. Check the wire leads first and if that is good, replace the TPS. A faulty TPS will give you a hard 1-2 shift and delayed shift on the higher gears at WOT. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to know your car is running 100% again.

Oxy Sensor

Makes 100% sense to me

I have a 1999 SL1 that I'm having a field day with. I installed a OEM cruise control on the car, took it to the dealer and had them program the PCM to see the cruise.

Cruise works flawlessly, but now I have a Service Engine Soon and Service Lights on all the time (Crank position sensor error and 1 cylinder missfire error) that the dealer cannot get to reset (Car runs perfectly) Dealer has worked on it 4 days so far (at their cost, not mine) they seem to be stumped. I love it!
