If you have a cigarette lighter or power port, usually you can power up the system by using a jumper battery attached a a probe. connect the negative part of the jumper to any good metal surface. make a tube out of cardboard and insert it into the port, then use a phillips head screwdriver attached to the positive cable and touch it to the center terminal of the port while pushing the trunk button in.Even though the cardboard should act as a shield, be careful not to touch anything but the center contact!!!

    Never saw a jump block on one of those but would likely have seen it if i needed it. Use the jump block if its there!!!

My 2003 Saturn Ion remote trunk release won't

Check to make sure the button on the trunk latch is turned from manual unlock...they made that feature so only the key will work to open the trunk that way if someone breaks in the front of your car they can't hit the trunk release and get into the trunk...may be the same thing for your remote. Hope that helps.

I have a 2007 saturn ion, the battery is dead do to forgetting to shut the headlights off, now the key is stuck in the ignition and no way to open the trunk to get to the battery. Is there anyway to the...

Well, the first answer is right but doesn't solve the problem and the second answer is wrong as the battery is in the trunk.

Just had the exact same problem. Battery dead on 2005 ion due to head lights left on which causes the key to stick in ignition.

Could not get to the battery in trunk because key stuck and power trunk switch also dead (no battery power, catch 22).

Solution: I hooked up a battery charger to the positive terminal under the hood by the fuse box and the negative to the engine block and charged it for 20 minutes. You could also jump it using the same terminals.

Key stuck in ignition had to unhook battery to kill trunk shut can't get in trunk to open and hook battery back up

the ignition lock cylinder exploded in the housing and thats why the key is stuck,there is a little square panel under the steering column pop that off and push on the white knob and that will let the key turn and hopefully come out,,and then all ok,but you still need a new switch

2003 saturn ion-release does not work for trunk release

If only the trunk release is not working, did you check to see if the little lever arm switch on the trunk lid at the latch assembly is switched to enable the release? Mine came switched to the 'Off' position when I bought it and it took me a few days to figure that one out.
