    • There is no slack in the park brake cable.
  1. Turn OFF the ignition.
  2. Disable the SIR system.

SOURCE: 2004 SATURN ION Alarm goes off without being armed.

if you have a sunroof, the sunroof drains are clogged. either way you may have a bad door switch. you will have to pull each one out and look for corrosion at the plug. the fronts are most common, they are on either side of the dashboard.

SOURCE: My saturn won't go into park. All other gears work

some vehicles have a small slot next to the AT shifter on the floor. about the size of a car key to fit in. on my vehicle that is the release to let the shifter go into park. just find something long to stick in there like your spare key then try and return the shifter to P with the brake depressed. just push straight down, there is no turning motion to do this. this happened with my accord.

SOURCE: 1997 Saturn SL-2 emergency brake

Well my 97 sl2's button also flew out of the emergency brake handle. I got frustrated when i saw how much they wanted for the parts to get it fixed. But the solution was as close as my tool box. I found a forgotten tube of 5 ton epoxy resin. And since i didn't feel like spending $100,00 i took the cover off the emergency brake put epoxy gel inside the broken button put the spring on and put the plastic piece in place put on and held the button down for 10 minutes with my bare hands until set to usable strength and now it works perfectly.

I have a 2000 Saturn ls2 that will not go into park. Can you tell me why? Every other gear works fine.


You probably have a linkage problem that needs to be addressed. For now, start your car in neutral, and instead of park use neutral and set the parking brake. Also turn your wheels toward the curb if you park on a hill just in case the parking brake fails

you should hear a click from the solenoid when you apply the brakes. If your brake lights don't work, your shift lock release won't either. There is a bypass method for emergencies in your owner manual. Check fuse for brake lights. And switch on brake pedal
