Question about 2003 Saturn ION

2 Answers

Battery I have an 03 saturn ion and about one in every 4 starts, I have to jump it. Once it's jumped, it's fine, so I'm thinking it's just the battery. I need to know the size of the batter, the voltage, because I can't find any auto parts store that carries batteries for a saturn ion. I called the dealer and he said it just had to be a side post battery with matching size and voltage, I think. Thanks!! :)

When changing the battery, it's in the trunk, so you have to have a battery with those special vent holes on the side. this can be very dangerous if you don't vent your battery with those hoses.  most auto part stores do not carry them.  try a battery store.  and if the battery doesn't fix the problem, change your alternator.

It should really be on the battery #1 and #2, aren't all cars pretty much running on a 12v or 24v system these days?

I have a 03 saturn ion won't start. I replace battery and alt and starter and the car want say nothing unless I jump it off what's wrong


You may have a bad or loose connection or bad battery cable. Is the battery still charged up? If you have a voltmeter, check for 12.5 volts or more, then check for at least 9.6 volts when trying to start. If less, charge up the battery, or get a jump and run it for about half hour to recharge the battery.

2005 Saturn ion 2. Trunk left open, battery too low to start car. Jumped battery, now runs rough and in gear has no power. What the?


jumping the car 2005 typical ignition control module. In todays 2000 and above you are supposed to disconnect then charge the battery, Oh well acces the fuse box and ck to see if any fuse has blown out. Make sure terminal are tight and drive it at part throttle with a/c on see if that will bring the drive parameters back.

Where do you jump a 2003 Saturn IOn


Connect both cables to the battery on the car jumping. Connect the positive lead to the battery and the negative to the frame or any metal ground other than the battery on the car being jumped.

Have a 2002 ion that sometimes wont start but if left for 10 mins will start up.


I have 2003 Saturn Ion. I had this problem over and over 2006 - 2008. IT IS THE IGNITION SWITCH. IT IS DEFECTIVE IN ALL ION'S.The replacement may be defective also, not sure. Mine was driving fine, went ino store for 1 hr came out stone cold dead, would not start and key **** in. Had to have towed to Saturn. They said it was battery and replaced battery.I said this did not make sense. 6 yr battery only 3 yr old , never weak start, never run down, in summer? It happened again 2 mo later. They tried to say battery , I said no. They checked battery. It was fine. Could not find problem. They did total electrical check. It happened again 1 mo later. drove into feed store. Went in came out it happened again. I got jump from someone 30 min later and started right up. 2 wks later same, I got jump 20 min later started. 1 mo late same. Sometimes it would just start up. Took to another Saturn place. They said Ignition switch, saturn was having big problem with this on Ions. Got changed and no problems for 1 yr. I was talking to repesentative at Saturn Headquarters. I told the problem. They said the ignition switch has an electrical component, or it is hooked to electrical component. THEY SAID IF I HAD JUST SAT THERE 20 MIN WITH KEY OFF, THE COMPUTER CHIP FOR IT WOULD HAVE RESET ITSELF WHEN IT COOLED DOWN AND I COULD HAVE STARTED IT EACH TIME. IT WAS BEST TO GET REPLACED AND NOT WORRY, BUT THIS WILL HELP YOU IN A STRESSFUL PINCH, UNTIL YOU CAN GET THE IGNITION SWITCH REPLACED. NOTE: Go to Auto Zone , O 'Reilleys, Pep Boys etc, get a repair manuel , CHILTON $ 23- $ 25 , for your year , make, model car. CHILTON IS MUCH BETTER THAN HAYES MANUEL. It is wonderful and many things you can do yourself.
