    are you in cold weather? has this car ever had a new ign switch? the keys do not need to be programed with this system.

    sounds like anti theft lock , preventing the car from starting . are possibly you using a newly cut key in the ignition , that's not programmed yet for this car ? just a thought , do you have a remote for this car , and if you have a second key have you tried that one ? just a couple thoughts . johnny

SOURCE: Steering

It is an electric assist steering. On very heavy use the motor can become overheated and goes into "safe mode" only partial assist until it cools down. Repeated attempts at parrallel parking have been know to cause this.

I have a 2006 saturn ion, on the dash a car and lock symbol appears when I excelerate.


the passlock /anti theft system is activated bad key -problem with emote fob-or ingition switch bad it's your passlock warning light and it will flash when you open the door if the ignition is off.

If you double click the lock on the remote it will flash till you unlock door with remote

If you single click the lock on the remote the light will turn off after a short time

If your light stays on the system is not work properly and needs to be serviced

Owners manual tells most all.

2004 saturn ion does not start on a regular basis. After trying to start it and you try it again after awile..it starts. The battery is fine and all electrical works.


We were having problems with my son's 2004 Saturn Ion. The first thing that started flashing was the power steering warning, so fixed that by replacing the fuses. It kept flashing and then the coolant light came on and it wouldn't start. The battery was fine and well charged. We finally asked a friend who manages a vehicle service center for assistance. The Ion has a standard transmission and that was the problem. After only 15 minutes, they found the clutch switch was just a little loose. So they tightened it and the car popped right off and all the flashing warning lights disappeared. An easy fix but the car sat in our garage for 6 weeks as we couldn't find the solution!

Coolant message,n reduced engine power light is on, wont start


Your battery is too weak to turn the starter. The starter takes much more power than the lights or anything else.

2003 Saturn Ion will not start. Security lock is on.


The fix for this problem is well known, so is the cause. GM needs to step up in my opinion. You can fix it yourself if you're willing

2003 ion starting after running


Google Saturn Ignition Lock and you'll see that this is a major problem with these cars. I bought a 2003 Ion in May 2008 and have had it in the shop 3 times for starting problems. I just had the entire ignition lock system replaced last month and so far it's been okay. Saturn will acknowledge that this is a problem, but there is no recall or true fix for it.
