2003 L200 cranks on a part time basis.

Asked by Dec 09, 2014 at 04:26 PM about the 2003 Saturn L-Series 4 Dr L200 Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

On occasions my L200 will refuse to crank.  I have noticed that if the running lights in
the headlight assembly are burning I can crank it and put it in gear.  But if those lights
are off it will not crank.  Sometimes when it cranks the running lights will go off, and
then I cannot depress the button on the shifter to put it in gear.  My mechanic has
replaced the key switch, the other switch that the key turns and cleaned a ground wire.  
It still has the same problem.  Help!!!
