2002 Saturn L200 Reviews

I purchased car with less than 7,000 miles. It ran like a charm and was excellent on gas. Also, I had a knee problem and
was driving another car which made it worse. This car rode so
comfortably and my knee problem was not an issue. Anyway, besides light bulbs blowing out in rear (seems to do that more often than should. Use mostly locally, but took on trips as well. Approx. 36,000 and that's when started with things going wrong. What a bummer! The headlights turned on (even with car shut off). This was worse on overcast/rainy days. Also, the oil light came on for oil change ahead of time (the levels were fine) and then the car doors wouldn't lock, remote wouldn't work and worst of all the odometer completely blanked out and went down to "1". Told was Body Control Module and it's very
costly to replace at dealer. My local mechanic unable to fix due to special machine that reads codes didn't have. The GM dealer said will cost about $6-700, to start. I hope this fixes it, but wish I could get a new car as don't feel safe anymore with it after reading negative reviews. Was happy with
it before and thought we'd keep it basically till it dies. But
now, I'm very confused. Had water pump issue couple years ago
and air conditioner fixed. Hope nothing else goes wrong.

Have a 02 l200 been good car has 2.2 engine just stopped. Has fuel pressure. Replaced cam sensor still won 't start. Need help. Smiteye56@aol.com

My headlights(daytime running lights/high beam) keep flashing along with the door locks keep unlocking. It's very annoying with other vehicles thinking I have an emergency. The door locks keeping unlocking as I'm driving. I went to the local dealer and didn't want to pay the diagnostic fee of $100. The service tech advised me to change the key ignition which triggers the anti theft system which causes the lights to flash and the doors to unlock. I did and it didn't fix my problem. $50 for cylinder and %60 for locksmith to install and key the cylinder. Waste of time and money. any suggestions? I'm desperate and will have to go to the dealer and pay high dealer labor and diagnostics. I love my car. Will never get rid of. Only problem I've ever had.

my saturn idles super high when it first starts but the won't come back down. What could be going on whith it?

I have an 2002 L-200 Saturn and the doors seem to lock/unlock on their own.Even when I turn off/on the radio the doors will lock /unlock.I think it might be the body control module but now that Saturn is gone it is hard to get people to work on them ,much less try and find parts.Anyone else had this problem?
