I have the same problem with my 1999 Saturn SL2 model. It has electric locks with a remote keyless entry. I went to lock my doors as I was inside the car, driving, and all 4 locks seized up and began clicking. A day later, I can not use my remote entry thing nor can I unlock or lock my car from the inside. The alarm system prevents me from locking the door, but even if I did, the locks would still click and they'd all wind up unlocked before the day is over with. Even if I manually lock the doors from the inside, the locks start clicking and by the time I get where I'm going, they are all 4 unlocked and clicking away.

If you've gotten answer, please respond to with "SaturnSL2" in the subject.

I can't afford for Saturn to look at it. They'll charge me $95 for a service call only to tell me the problem is going to be expensive to fix.

On September 10, 2009 I picked up the left hand door lock from a Saturn dealer and replaced it within one hour and I'm not a mechanic..problem was cleared up..door lock switch was worn out..the one on the driver's door is used the most. just take your time..i saved at least one hundred dollars by doing it myself.


The driver's side and passenger's side front door locks are interchangable. Just pry off the plastic retainer and insert the door lock itself. The rear ones will not interchange with the front units. Pry from the top using a small screwdriver and it pop out.

Why would a car only make a clicking noise and not turn over when you turn the key?

The clicking noise that you hear is the starter solenoid trying to get the starter to run. Chances are the bendix in the starter is locked up. A good fix for a locked up bendix is a few good taps with a hammer. This should free up the bendix.

check to see if the battery terminals are tight then locate the starter relay and check it. iif the relay is bad replace it . the relay should be under the hood. the other thing it may be is a locked up starter in which case you will have to replace it. but start with the terminals first.
