Why won't my 2001 SL1 car turn over?

Asked by Nov 26, 2014 at 09:51 AM about the 2001 Saturn L-Series 4 Dr L100 Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My vehicle was running just fine yesterday.
This morning I stopped to grab something
at the store, and when I came back to leave,
I turn the key and the engine did not fire up.
I did this several times and I have come up
with the same results. I replaced my spark
plug and my battery is fairly new. Thanks.

So does it crank? Do you hear the fuel pump prime and or have fuel pressure? What is the battery voltage. "Fine" doesn't tell us if it is properly charged to start the car.

No crank. I hear the deathly sound of silence when I turn the key to start. I just attempted to jump my car and it did not start up.

My guess is that it's my starter.
