Question about 2006 Saturn ION
I recently had to replace the battery on my '03, because it was in there since then I think, haha. Anyways, once I replaced it, it woulnd't start (Manual transmission), no cranking, nothing. My GM Passlock goes off, everything seems fine except for the gauge flashs "PWR STR" and then goes back to the miles. By looking things up, I think it might be a killswitch engaged? Not sure, any help would be appreciative before I send it to the shop.
Sidenote -- everything in the car is getting power except the stero, which I found odd.
Ok you need to re-learn your passlock. to do this. turn the key all the way to start and leave it on. you will then see the passlock light flashing. let it sit for 10 mins. or until the light stops flashing. then turn the key off and take it out for 30 secs. repeat this 2 more times. after the last 10 min cycle when the light stops flashing. take the key out for at least 1 min. now try to crank the vehc. that should solve your problem. have a great day!
