Probably something shorting out. This is something that probably isn't going to be easy to figure out. You need someone that can diagnose it in person

SOURCE: 2005 Saturn ion . ignition problem?

Your ignition switch needs to be replaced and then your PassLock needs to be re-learned. Very common problem on the Ions.

SOURCE: My 2005 Saturn ION will not start once in a while.

My 2005 did the same thing. It was the ignition switch. Happened mostly when it was a cold morning. Seems to be a common problem.

SOURCE: 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

2005 saturn ion 141k miles on it. when you start car it runs real rough, put on a code reader and it read miss fires all cylinders.


Try this; get the car in an area that is as dark as possible, open the hood and let it idle. Allowing several minutes for your eyes to adjust to the dark, look for any sparks around the ignition wiring. My Saturn (now junked-too many problems) needed all plug wires replaced in under 3 years.

those saturns had troubles with ignition switch due the terminals on the inside of the switch not making contact you can run voltage tests to determine check for volts with ignitio on and off you will have to remove the plastic off the steering column to access the switch. thank you josh.

06 Saturn Ion, starter disengages


the car with a padlock symbol means security system,,,you either have a bad ignition switch causing this issue and or a passlock housing,,,sounds like a normal problem,,,when the ignition switch/passlock housing goes bad it can work sometimes and not others,but it will cuase the car not to start,, i bet there are codes stored in the computer,,you are gonna need to take it to the dealer,,

I had the same problem. My 2004 Ion had 85000 miles on it. It was a bad sensor. The whole coolant reservoir tank needs to be replaced to fix the problem. This was covered under the extended warranty that we had. If you are doing this repair yourself, a hose clamp tool is recommended for simplicity.

I am not a mechanic and have had no problems with my 2005 Ion-2 but at msn/autos I see that these can exhibit a starting problem because of the ignition switch which they recommend replacing. The part is around $40 & the labor is 1 hr.
