SOURCE: 2004 Saturn Ion - No Reverse lights

The problem is most likely on the transmission range selector switch, this is on th top of the transmission and has a multi-wire connector going to it, a shaft goes through it and the trans shift cable is connected there.

Take the car back to your Mechanic and have the mechanic reset your system. Some may advise you to disconnect the battery, and that will reset your computer. This may cause significant problems with your car's computer,radio, alarm. Take the car to the mechanic.

SOURCE: my check engine light on my 07 saturn ion keeps

1174 is a lean code, and would have to been set first because it will not set when the 0300 is there. 0300 is a random misfire, because it read after the lean code, it was probably caused by the lean condition. 1st check for vacuum leaks from hoses or intake gaskets, you cal listen for a hissing sound, or spray carb cleaner around intake systems, a change in rpm will be noticed when spraying near a vac leak. other probable causes are the upstream 02 sensor, map sensor, or fuel delivery problems. does the vehicle idle porly, or does it miss at the top end?

I had the SAME problem...do you smell any fuel smells? Is your car getting less MPG and is does it have less excelleration? It is the Fuel Injector(s)...

Most likely...one or more has gone bad, I believe this is yet another common problem with the Saturn ION...hhhhmmmm I wonder why they went out of business...

I received the following code for a 2006 Saturn Ion with a 2.4 Litre motor P0446 what is is and how do I fix it?


Trouble Code: P0446

Evaporative Emissions (EVAP) Vent System Performance

Possible Causes:


The EVAP system tests run when the engine is first started and meets the Conditions for Running the DTC. An intermittent condition could be caused by a damaged EVAP vent housing, a temporary blockage at the EVAP canister vent inlet, or a pinched vent hose. A blockage in the vent system will also cause a poor fuel fill condition.An EVAP canister, vent hose, or vent solenoid valve that has restricted flow may cause this DTC to set. Using a purge solenoid command with a scan tool will allow vacuum to be applied to the system instead of pressure. With the engine running, the EVAP canister vent solenoid valve open and the EVAP canister purge solenoid valve commanded to 100 percent, the fuel tank vacuum should not increase to more than 5 inches H2O.An EVAP canister filter that is restricted can cause this DTC to set. Refer to Evaporative Emission (EVAP) Canister Filter Replacement and Evaporative Emission (EVAP) System Cleaning .Disconnecting one component at a time while the EVAP system is under flow will help to pinpoint a restriction in the system.Reviewing the Failure Records vehicle mileage since the diagnostic test last failed may help determine how often the condition that caused the DTC to be set occurs. This may assist in diagnosing the condition.For intermittent conditions, refer to Intermittent Conditions .

I have a P0456 code on my 2003 Ford Expedition. Where is the vapor purge solenoid or the canister?


The information you are asking for varies depending on how the vehicle is equipped ie. ENGINE SIZE, AUTOMATIC or MANUAL TRANSMISSION, 2-WHEEL DRIVE, 4-WHEEL DRIVE, ALL-WHEEL DRIVE, etc.
With that said, it also deserves mention that there is a Technical Service Bulletin published by Ford Motor Company that applies to the model year and model that you have listed that involves Diagnostic Test Code (DTC) P0456.

Please note that this bulletin emphasizes the requirement of special equipment to properly diagnose and repair the DTC's listed in the bulletin. Below is a brief (partial) description of the bulletin:

ISSUE
Some vehicles may exhibit a Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) illuminated with Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) P0442, P0455, P0456, P0457 or P1442 or a "Check Fuel Cap" Lamp illuminated with DTC P0457 for the Evaporative Emission System. This may be caused by loose or leaking hoses, loose or broken fuel cap, a leak at the top of the fuel filler pipe neck, etc.
ACTION
Use the Rotunda Leak Detector Smoke Machine (Part 218-00001) or equivalent, to locate and repair leaks in the Evaporative Emission System.

Started having issues last 2 week where the fuel gauge would just die and then come back on. Yesterday, the check engine light came on and I testerd the computer mod which gave out code of P0442.


P0442 = Evaporative Emission System-Leak detected (small leak)
Go to www.hmaservice.com and register your vehicle by VIN #.. you'll then have access to wiring diagrams, shop manuals, service bulletins, campaigns, illustrations and procedures, etc.
When a 'check engine light' (MIL=Malfunction Indicator Lamp) is turned on, there is a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) set/stored in the ECM/PCM (Engine Control Module/Powertrain Control Module). This code identifies which engine management system component/function experienced a malfunction.
SINCE I don't know which model/year (M/Y) Hyundai vehicle you have, it's difficult to help.

Engine light is on


There is a long list of sensors and conditions that can trip the check engine light, and each one has a
diagnostic trouble code(dtc) number. To find out what is causing your code you will need an OBDII scanner.
Most auto parts stores have one and will scan your car for free. Once you know where the trouble is, you
can better figure out how to fix it.Hope this helps.
Good luck

Thank you for your suggestions and I did find out that the check engine light is on. I don't know if my daughter's 2004 4-door Saturn Ion is a lemon are what. Since the engine light is on ; in addition to...


Your going to have to get the car scanned for the DTC codes, Auto Zone and most repair shops can scan for the DTC codes but note Auto Zone scan free of charge. The DTC code will indicate the issues than needs to be addressed to get your car running 100% again. It cold be as simple as a dirty fuel filter and will need to be replaced, Note and dirty fuel filter will make the fuel pump work harder cause it to have a shorter life and the fuel pressure may be getting too low now for the fuel injectors to work properly. Have the car scanned for the DTC codes and replace the fuel filter which is recommend every 15,000 miles or once a year. Good luck and keep me posted.

What does it mean when the dashboard indicator


that is your 'check engine' light.if it stays on, one or more sensors on your engine has sent a 'trouble code' to the on-board computer.a diagnostic code reader needs to be connected to it to determine the cause.
