2001 Saturn L200 Problems

A/C off for Engine Protection and Engine Reads Cold

The Saturn L200 may display the warning message "A/C off for Engine Protection" on the instrument panel. This may be accompanied by illumination of the check engine light and the temperature gauge reading cold at all times. This is a feature of the engine that is activated by the power control module when it detects the engine warming up too slowly. The OBD trouble code P0128 may also be stored. 

The cause is simply a worn out thermostat that stays open at all times, preventing the engine from reaching the proper operating temperature. 

Replacement of the thermostat will correct the issue. 

Check Engine Light Due to Engine Misfire

The ignition module or an ignition coil may fail causing an engine misfire, the Check Engine Light may or may not illuminate. Diagnoses will be required to determine the cause and needed repair.

Check Engine Light Due to Gas Cap Issue

Illumination of the Check Engine Light can be caused by a loose or worn gas cap.

Where can I find the fuses. How can I replace the rear right brake light? I just bought this used car in June, 2011 and have already paid for quite a few repairs; back breaks system, air conditioner system including compressor, then recently the compressor stopped turning on; for heat or air. I also had the front brakes replaced but they have been "squeeling" since then. It is not the rotor...
