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

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.
saturn has a TSB#04-08-45-005D the ignition switches go bad usually when its cold outside and they dont let the car start,common ion issue,,you need a new ignition switch,,not the lock cylinder the switch its a little electric box on the end of the cylinder housing you need to replace that and reprogram the new one to the car,switch is like $40
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.
Has anyone gave Saturn any hard time over this power steering issue yet? Looks to me like this is a very WELL KNOWN problem for Saturn's but nothing's been done to solve it. Even newer Saturns have this problem, especially just when the car's out of the lousy warranty that we have.
Someone's got to take action, may be a sour law suit would do the job.
