    Another "I can answer anything" reply by a "Hey, I've changed a spark plug once" mechanic........ Good luck finding that ECM he told you about near the battery under the hood. The battery on a 2006 Ion is IN THE TRUNK!

My car keeps cutting off everytime i stop. it will start right back up but then will cut off when i stop again

had a similar problems with my saturn, at lights and stop sings i would get a low idle and almost like it was about to stall.

1- the delar will tell you it may be an altornator problem, this is most likly not it.
2- SPARK PLUGS, i changed mine and my engine ran a lot smother and less "almost stalling" (also wont hurt to change your spark plugs.
3- fule injectors and filter may be clogged and dirty. Replace both.

all of this you can do by your self with less then $200 and and about 3 hours for every thing. Take your time plan out your route and ask the guys at your local car parts shop for more advise.

2006 Ion, a/c cycles cold to hot when driving why, it goes back and forth

Depends on if the ac is cutting off or if the air flow is changing.
If the compressor is cutting off it could be a faulty relay or pressure switch - even the compressor clutch. Might be something with the radiator fan too.
If the compressor is running and you get hot air, it could be a problem with a blend door under the dash.

Recently our 2006 Saturn Ion has started turning on the not starting alarm. We have to wait 10 min. to be able to start it again. We don't know what we are doing differently

sound like problem is in the security anti theft system.your car keys are worn or ignition switch. the bcm and pcm dont recognize keys this will disable car from cranking.this is a dealership fix.

My roommate lost the key to my car, how do i get a spare?

If you bought the car new, the dealer from whom you purchased it will have the key code on file and they can cut you a new one. If may even appear on your paperwork. If you didn't buy it new, then you should determine where it sold new, should be in the owners manual, and prove ownership to that dealer and they can cut you a new key.

I need help with a saturn ion 06. We had a system installed after listening to it for 5 min the (original) radio cut out and will not turn back on. Now the windshied wipers wont turn off unless we pull...

not a problem with your car, i am a saturn tech and never had this cocern,who ever put the system in messed something up, they may have tapped into a fuse or wire they shouldnt have and thats causing you concern,the new cars are very sensitive to proper voltage and if they tapped into the wiring or fuses that changes voltage and causes many issues

Key keeps getting stuck in ignition, will not cut all the way off unless I press the release under the stearing column.

Sometimes this happens to me and it's b/c I have something in the cup holder that will not allow the car to completely lock in park.
