Question about 2006 Saturn ION
The power steering indicator came on and the power steering was out. What could cause this problem? I can't even find where the power steering fluid goes and the owner's manual is no help at all.
Mine is a 2006 Saturn ION. Mine has been going out repeatedly while I am driving. I had the fuse checked (and I looked too). The fuse was fine.
I had another electrical problem before this with the emissions system. It seemed to resolve itself.
I have also had a problem with the passlock system in cold weather.
It seems that the ION (at least this model) has several issues with respect to electrical/sensor systems.
Anyone know what the problem is with the power steering for certain? I dread taking the car in for someone to look at because I can afford to have someone charge me to look at it and fix things that don't need to be fixed trying to figure it out. I MIGHT be able to afford the repair to the actual problem depending on what it really is.
Any good/reliable info is appreciated.
I had the same problem a while back and the issue was two pink 30 amp fuses under the hood. Saturn watned to replace the steering column and that damned computer, but come to find out after doing some research it was jsut those lame fuses try that and see if it helps you. and there are two of them

It is very likely that either the electric motor is out or one of the sensors that send info to the control module is out, or the control module, most likely it will be the motor. I have read many post about this electric steering, I would contact Saturn and ask if there are any recalls on it.

Mine is in the shop right now for the same problem. There is some sort of computer in the steering column that goes bad and they can not just replace the piece, they have to replace a good portion of the column its self. Luckilly ours went out with 2500 miles left on the warentee so it's covered. I have no clue what the part is called, the chick at the service dept keeps calling it the rack and i keep explaining the rack is not in the steering column. I work in the auto parts biz and i may be a blonde chick but i know cars. And this 'aint the rack.
