2003 Saturn ION 2 trunk Problem


I have a Saturn 2003 ION 2 the manual trunk button stopped working as well as the remote trunk button.

Fuse checked (Driver's Right Panel) it is good. Checked with Meter.

Also, I can hear the relay behind the lower driver's panel clicking, when pushing the manual trunk button or the remote trunk release, but the trunk lock will not disengage. Any suggestions?

Thank you.

Open the trunk and look up near the latch. There is a red switch. It cuts the power to both the key fob as well as the under dash button. My button is loose and every so often will not work. I fli switch and it works again. I'll replace switch soon. You may have had something in trunk...and it flipped switch as well. Feel free to call....if you need further. 707.980.9253

Hi i would like to know if there is a fuse for the trunk in my saturn ion quad 3 2.4 auto 2007. The trunk is operated by a key less remote and i would like to know if i can prevent this.

Not sure. You may look in the owners manual and see if there is any type of VALET mode to prevent the trunk from opening, of course if they have the KEY it wont matter. you can always disconnect the wires that go to the truck latch assy.

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.

Truck won't open

Hello, there should be a fuse under the hood, I believe its number 10 or try 18. Just check the rating on the fuse and replace it with the same. I think its a 25 amp rating. If its not that it could be the relay that releases the trunk. There is a manual release button at the rear of the car also. If all that fails buy a service manual because if something else goes wrong you can look it up in the book. I hope I have been of assistance.

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.
