Saturn SL2 1999 wont start!!!

Asked by May 03, 2016 at 09:01 AM about the 1999 Saturn S-Series 4 Dr SL2 Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 1999 Saturn SL2 died while driving it. Tryied
repeatedly to start it and nothing. Saw the starter
smoking so I replaced the starter, still no start.
Battery is charged and holds a charge, fuses are
good. Before I put the new starter on and tried to
start it all the dash lights came on full strength but
when I turned the key to the start position they
would dim, but after putting on the new starter the
dash light are not dimming with the key in the start
position. I have checked all the fuses and battery
cables all of them are fine. If I hold the key in the
start position and move the shifter back and forth
from park to neutral I get a clicking noise and the
dash light flicker in sync with the clicking. So I was
thinking it was the Neutral Safety Switch but Im not
sure. I assumed it was the Neutral safety switch
after reading some other forums on it. Help please!  
I need this car running so I can get to work.
Thanks
Patrick

Make sure you're getting fuel delivery check your injector fuel rail to see if your getting any pressure on it and make sure you don't have a clogged fuel filter?
