You should check the main fuse its the large one you probably blew it and hopefully not the ecu.

I have a 06 saturn ion, automatic, i left my lights on, my battery died so i got a jump start, now the check engin light is on, the power steering indicator is on, the speedometer doesnt work and when


most of the time people unknowingly jump start the vehicle and blow the steering fuse in the engine compartment-this is a very common problem that I have seen at least 2x a week. The check engine light is probably related to a battery voltage low code or an electronic steering code. Check your owners manual for the location of the fuse and just replace it.

Looking for where to put the power steering fluid in the saturn ion


are you shure this isn't electronic power steering? if so no power steering fluid on these. i have a 2006 gmc vehicle and it has electonic power steering. I had trouble with it and went looking for the fluid level only to learn there is none. i fixed the problem at least for now by finding the fuse for the power steering and pulling it. then replaced it and started the car and everything was ok. there have been some recalls on gm electronic steerings systems so you may have to check with a dealer. if this helps please reply and good luck

Power steering


I used to own a 2005 Cobalt SS supercharged, basicaly the same thing as an Ion Redline. I know that on my car, there is an electric power steering pump, rather than a belt driven. If you have to same system, there may be an electrical problem causing the power steering to stop working and start again after turning off and starting the car again. If you are still under warenty, I would recomend taking your car to the dealership.

2005 ion power steering problem


remove electronic power steering (EPS) motor. remove the 4 bolts that hold on the motor housing. remove the housing. using a tooth brush, clean out the 'brush' dust from between the commutators. don't use cleaner spray as you might degrease the bearings. don't use anything metal to clean out the dust you might scratch or nick the commutators.

this solution has worked for over 500 miles for me. I'll keep you posted.

Just recently in month of July '09, My 2005 Saturn Ion power steering light came on and immediately the steering wheel locked while I was on the highway running 70 mph. I immediately noticed it and...


Call the consumer safety commision and make a formal complaint. It is a safety issue. Loss of steering control of vehicle at freeway speeds. If its a new car, everytime it locks up, have it towed to the dealer. Even if its in your driveway. They get three hits and it is deemed a lemon if not repaired. Buy another carwith your refund..

2004 Saturn Ion - Power Steering Problem


The motor on the power steering is overheating which causes the thermal overloads to trip.

go tho the junk yard and buy a motor for a 2004 thru 206 ion or a 2004 thru 2008 chevy colbalt.

they are all the same. You may have to buy the wholle steering colum but you can remove the motor with 2 - 12mm bolts and a quick dissconnect pulg. Replace just the motor as the whole steering colum is a bit more complicated. the dealerships want you to replace the whoe steering colum, in fact that is the only way they sell the parts. It is a scam. Just the motor needs to be replaced.
I have done it on 4 different ions. try to get a motor with few as possible miles and as new as possible. I have paid between $50 and $125 for these. The dealer wants $900 fnad about $500 to install. It is very simple to do. Only 2 bolts.

I have a 2006 Saturn ION as well and the PWR STR light came on and the power steering went out. When i turn off the car and turn back on it's fine for a while but goes out again in a day or so. I called Saturn and they said it is the power steering which is electric and to fix it i would have to replace the whole steering column! If it is not the fuses which i haven't checked yet then it will cost me $850.00 to replace. that's not counting whatever else they find and charge me for. I was looking under 2004 Saturn Ion and they have a lot of the same issues. I don't know where to look for the fuses at though I'm thinking under the steering wheel if anyone knows please let me know.

Thanks

Mom!
