Safety Ratings

Safety Ratings data is not currently available for the 2002 Saturn LS L-300 Auto.


Potential Number Of Units Affected: 239,993

On certain passenger vehicles equipped with 2.2L L4 (L61) engines, a failure of the ignition control module may cause deterioration in idle quality, reduction in overall engine power, and the vehicle may be hard to start. Continued operation of the vehicle after such an ignition module failure will result in the "Service Engine Soon" light flashing, and may lead to secondary failures of the catalytic converter, oxygen sensor, and exhaust resonator. Failure of the resonator will cause increased exhaust noise. Prolonged operation of the vehicle following a resonator failure may lead to a fire.

Dealers will (1) replace the ignition control module, (2) replace the ignition control module and spark plugs, or (3) replace the ignition control module, spark plugs, and update the powertrain control module calibration. Until parts become available, owners are being sent a letter advising what should be done in the interim. When parts become available, owners will be advised to contact their dealers for appointments to have their vehicles repaired. Parts should be available during September 2003. Owners may contact Saturn at 1-800-553-6000, prompt #3.
