Saturn Won't Start

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

do anything. Tried jumping it and still nothing. Battery is very old but not even
lights are working or radio. Does this sound more electrical or just a bad

Sounds like the battery to me, to test it, probe the battery, what is the voltage? If you don't have a voltmeter, remove it and have your local auto parts store test it for you. They should for free.


It's not the battery, replaced it with a new one. Lights and everything worked but didn't click or turn over. Then everything stopped working again. No lights, no juice. Any suggestions?
