This video will show you how to check the battery cheaply in a Saturn S-Series car. This is more appropriately called the "poor man's load test" for all of you who don't know. To check the condition of the Saturn battery, find the fuse panel inside the vehicle. Now, take out the fuel pump fuse and start the car. Next, hookup your multimeter to the battery and set it to the DC voltage scale and see what it says. Crank the engine over and hope the battery stays over 9.6 volts at room temperature.
