2000 Saturn SL 4 cylinder

All S series Saturns are 4cyl. It's an older car and probably needs maintenance. Tires, water pump and brakes are not anything but maintenance. 3 batteries however is a problem. Does the car have an aftermarket alarm/starter and/or aftermarket stereo?

they put the stereo in its new and no alarm

The fuel pump relay should be in the fuse box under the hood. Swap it out with another relay you know works, headlight, power windows ect. Try starting it, if it works then you need a new relay. The stereo was put in after you bought it? Look for remains of an old alarm or stereo wiring. They might be hooked up still and draining the he battery.

ok thanks so much!

Any time. I just hope it starts and you find what's draining your battery. Also look for any lights that might be on when the car is off. Luke glove box, trunk, under hood ect.
