Issue with 2003 ION 2 not wanting to start

For months now, I have been dealing with an issue where when making frequent stops, my Saturn ION 2 will not want to start again. The car always starts on the first try in the day, but sometimes, especially when the weather tends to be colder, and after making a few quick stops, the car doesn't want to start up again. Sometimes this issue will happen after putting the car in reverse then parking. After this occurs, I will wait 10 minutes or so, and sometimes the car will start but not kick over, and after a few more minutes, the car will finally start and run as usual. We currently have the car in the shop, but our mechanic cannot find the source of the issue. We are worried if this problem does not get found, the car will need more extensive work to repair... Any suggestions???

It sound like you have a faulty ignition switch the grease inside of your switch solidifies which does not allow proper contact

My 2003 Saturn Ion has an issue where at low speeds, such as stopping at a red light or stop sign, it will shutter like its about to stall. Once I accelerate, it seems to be fine and drive properly u


The coolant light is a bad thing. You need to check the coolant to see if it is low. That would cause the light to come on. IF it is low you could over heat the engine and that would cause a major problem.

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.

Intermintent cruise contol on 2007 ion coupe 2.4 not red line. I've had it to the dealer several times, and it seems to work for them thats Bull### what else can I do to fix this? Thanks


My 2007 Ion 2.2L sedan has the same issue. Every now and then when I am driving, the Cruise Control fails to engage. If I turn the car off, re-crank it, it works fine. Dealer cannot find the issue and it only happens about once a month. No bad computer codes or anything, just annoying.

I have a 2006 Saturn ION that sometimes when it is cold will not start. The radio works, lights all work, car won't start. Wait about 15 to 20 minutes and then it will start?


I have a 2005 Saturn ION with same problem. I took it to a mechanic and after resding computer codes, it appears this is a somewhat common issue; replacing the ignition switch is recommended and the cost is somewhere in the $300.00 range. I have read about one person that said that even with replacement, the problem returned about a month or so later. Suggest if you pay for the issue that you save the receipt so when/if there is an official recall, you may be able to by reimbursed for the repair through the recall. Some have opted to bypass the security system with some success.

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 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.
