    I have a 1995 Saturn SC2...I have had it sitting up for awhile..covered..I
    checked all electrical systems several months ago.I have decided to sell
    the car and had it detailed.To my suprize when I came out to the car ,the
    detailers had let the heater run for quite sometime to dry the carpets.At
    the moment I didn't think anything about it,but after the left the right
    popup light would not operate.I thought maybe it was stuck and then it
    started working.At the time I did not notice that the A/C was not blowing
    cold.I found that when I turned the fan off the A/C the lights popped
    up,but the light in the radio gets dark when I turn them on.Also I found
    that the A/C is not blowing cold and I don't hear the compressor trying to
    come on when the switch is on..The fan blows but and A/C lights up,just no
    cold air and there seems to be some weird problem with the electrical
    now..The detailers also pressured washed the engine while it was running..
    I have no clue where to even start checking things..I looked for unplugged
    wires and also the obivious things ,but can't seem to find anything that
    would cause this.Could water have settled somewhere in the engine to cause
    this? Anyone with any suggestions is welcome.. Please help?

  2. Possibly dirt grease and water going through and around alternator shorted
    it out, that might explain the lights dimming , have no idea about A/C .

    Clean Battery terminals,better yet, Replace the battery cables.

    Check & Clean body/engine grounds.
