    My daughters 2003 ion 2 has a similar problem. Once in while, when you turn the key to the start position, the starter will just bump and then nothing. We keep trying and trying then a short time later it usually will start. It hasn't done this for a month though. Any ideas??

    It looks like I am not alone on this problem. I am having the same issue. This problem showed up once my battery went bad. I have checked new battery, cables etc and still have the same problem. If I wait 5 minutes then I can get it started.

The security interlock on the ignition switch goes bad. The ignition switch needs replaced. (about $35 from the dealer) It takes about 30 minutes to replace and another 30 minutes to "learn" your key. The car locks out for 10 minutes when it fails so if you look in th emanual there is a procedure to override the lockout but it won't work for 10 minutes. Google the problem there are procedures for the switch replacement and learning the key with the new ignition switch.

The same thing happened to my 2003 Saturn Ion. It was a bad ignition switch. I have not had any problem since mine was replaced - it was about $150 and this was four years ago.

We have a 2003 Saturn Ion that has intermittent starting problems. The problem occurs at all temperatures. If we wait 5-15 minutes it will start. Have replaced the battery and starter My girlfriends...


Take the car in, and have the fuel pump checked, and maybe the alternater. Something in there is going out. Could even be lose battery cables, or a lose connection. Either way, you should have it checked before you get stuck somewhere.

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.
