04 saturn ion window and power lock problems

My sister-in-law has an 04 saturn ion that has an issue. After having the battery jumped, all of the power windows in the car quit working. Also, the auto lock controls on the drivers side quit working. However, when using the auto lock controls on the passenger side door, all of the doors lock except for the drivers door. The main fuse under the drivers dash has been checked, and doesn't seem to be the problem. What could be the problem?
Thanks for the help

    I have a 2004 Ion 3.  All power windows stopped working.  My fuse is fine.  The lights do not dim so there is no power going to any of the door motors.

    Left my headlights on and killed the battery. Replaced the battery now all the windows are not working. Only the power lock on the passenger side works. Anyone know how to fix this? Changed all the fuses & relays and it did not work.

Check the wires going from the driver door into the kick panel there should be a rubber thing around the wires and cut it off and the wires usualy break and loose connection

I have a 2007 saturn ion, the battery is dead do to forgetting to shut the headlights off, now the key is stuck in the ignition and no way to open the trunk to get to the battery. Is there anyway to the...

Well, the first answer is right but doesn't solve the problem and the second answer is wrong as the battery is in the trunk.

Just had the exact same problem. Battery dead on 2005 ion due to head lights left on which causes the key to stick in ignition.

Could not get to the battery in trunk because key stuck and power trunk switch also dead (no battery power, catch 22).

Solution: I hooked up a battery charger to the positive terminal under the hood by the fuse box and the negative to the engine block and charged it for 20 minutes. You could also jump it using the same terminals.

Driver door wont open

sounds like a hinge problem or the locking device to the door. Might have to play starkey and hutch for a while and jump in the window. Just kidding !! I would take to the dealer and have them look at it. But it appears to be the locking device the way it sounds.
