Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2002 Saturn....when I go to start my car all the lights come on on dashboard the
radio turns on but when I go to turn the car over the lights go out and the car doesn't
start without someone jumping me.  Also my car hesitates when I'm driving...what is
causing that

Sounds like either a dead battery, have it load tested, or a bad battery cable connection. Most auto parts stores will load test your battery for free. HTH. -Jim


Actually, better check that Old Alternator @ the same time!
