    I have a saturn sl1 '93 that will no longer start. I think that the
    ignition switch is good. I went to start it the other day and when I put
    my key in the ingintion all the dash lights came on anlong with the radio
    but not the engine. I did not hear any noise (such as clicking) I tried
    again on about the third time it started what appeared to be normally. I
    went to the store just 2 mins down the road went in for about 5mins when I
    came back out it started fine. After being home for aproximately 15-20
    mins I went to try to start it again this time even after several tries it
    will not start. You can not jump start it but you can push start it and it
    seems to run fine after doing so but once it is off the only way to start
    it is to push and pop the clutch. As i said the ignition appears to be
    good and the battery has been checked and is good as long as the
    connections to it. What is the problem and how do I go about fixing it?

    Well sinces its manual it could be your clutch switch. I think you
    could hold the key to start and move the clutch in and out. If that
    doesnt work, set the brake, jack up the front, use stands and blocks,
    use someone you trust to hold the key and then go around and jiggle the
    wires. Sounds like some corrosion on some contacts.
