I am not a mechanic and have had no problems with my 2005 Ion-2 but at msn/autos I see that these can exhibit a starting problem because of the ignition switch which they recommend replacing. The part is around $40 & the labor is 1 hr.

Usually when the turnsignal blinks rapid this is a indicator that the turn signal bulbs is blown, you will need to check both the front and rear signal to see which is not working, and then change the blown bulb or bulbs.

the anti theft wire under the steering column gets to cold and locks out ignition. i just found the auto theft wire and disconnected it. or you can take a blow dryer or heat gun run under the steering column for 3-5 minutes. if you do disconnect the auto theft wire you must do it while the car is running. use the blow dryer method, start the car then disconnect the auto theft wire.

Mine (an '04 Ion sedan) has an issue with it's anti-theft computer programming, in where it will occasionally (maybe once every three weeks) not want to start. What is happening is that the computer is thinking that someone is attempting to steal the car (even though the factory key is being used), and disables the ignition for ten minutes. What I typically do is just turn the key all the way off, and sit until the radio clicks off (exactly 10 minutes), at which point I try again and it starts right up.
It's pretty annoying, but, to my knowledge, the only fix is to get a new computer, and while it's a pain in the ***, it's not worth $600+ to remedy.
This is also a relatively common issue in '98-'02 era Chevrolet Malibus, as well as some other GM cars of that time.
