The meter slot fuse contain Gauges, warning temp, interlock emerency relay, inhibitor switch, A.S.C.D, E.C.C.S., Back up lamp, seat belt timer, Bulb check relay, Air Conditioner, Rear window defogger, A/T control system, Daytime light control unit and the A/T shift lock. I have fixed the problem that I posted on the discussion page on 03/29/08. I found out one of the ignition relay behind the fuse box was not grounded. All I did was grounded the relay to a screw which grounded to the frame of the car. Now the car is able to start without any problem.

Could be your shifter cable has stretched and you need to replace it? On my 1995 Saturn SL2 I could not keep the shifter in 3rd gear. I replaced the tranny with one from the junkyard and the problem still persisted. I talked to Saturn and they said it was my shifter cable. I installed the shifter cable and the new tranny goes into 3rd gear without any problems. Please use this as an FYI. It was time consuming and expensive to replace the shifter cable, but a lot less expensive than the tranny. Hopefully it is something simpler for you.
The gear shifter has a retaining clip, just below the shifter knob. Hold the retaining clip in, on both sides of the shifter rod, and the shifter knob will come off.
