1997 Saturn SW1 Questions
Alarm comes on when opening door even after being locked up over night... engine light is NOT on. Dome light works properly. I suspect the ignition sw or is there a relay that may be stuck in the alarm position that is activated by the door light sw? I do not have an electrical diagram.
The dashboard "ABS" light comes on sometimes, but not most of the time. It seems to be about once in 10 driving sessions. It also seems like in damp, cold, wet weather it is more frequent. Does this look like a costly repair?
When starting the car from the parked position, moving slowly, and steering to the left or to the right, there is a loud "groaning" noise, seeming to come from the steering shaft area under the hood. Does this appear to be serious, or do I just need a new belt or to flush the fluid?
