My Saturn has electronic power steering. Mine wasn't working at all because the fuses were blown. Check and see if yours has any blown fuses. (Mine were in the engine compartment. Two 30 or 40 amp)

I have a 2003 Saturn ion-3. Last year the power steering went out and the shop had me replace the steering rack for $1100. Recently it has gone out again, what else might be the problem?


My power steering went out on a 2007 ion. I took it to a GM dealership with Goodwrench service repair. There was a recall & they fixed it FREE. I haven't had a problem since. That was oct 2011.

2007 SATURN ION POWER STEERING MESSAGE. MESSAGE FALSHES AND STEERING IS TOUGH TO TURN. i TURN CAR OFF AND TURN IT BACK ON AND IT'S FINE UNTIL MESSAGE COMES ON AGAIN. IT MAKES NO NOISE.


  • You have an electronic power steering system.

  • Your power steering module, steering assist motor and the steering sensor could all be problems. You will have to have a scan performed to see what the exact problem is. There is no other way.

  • The power steering aides you in turning the wheel. When the light comes on there is a malfunction and this is why it is hard to turn the wheel, because the steering assistance of the power steering is gone at that time. Turning the car off just temporarily resets the PCM.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

2005 ion power steering problem


remove electronic power steering (EPS) motor. remove the 4 bolts that hold on the motor housing. remove the housing. using a tooth brush, clean out the 'brush' dust from between the commutators. don't use cleaner spray as you might degrease the bearings. don't use anything metal to clean out the dust you might scratch or nick the commutators.

this solution has worked for over 500 miles for me. I'll keep you posted.

06 saturn ion 2.2 power steering ligt comes on


There is no fluid in that system. You may have a relay going bad or something. With these electrical issues, I would go see the dealership since not many shops will know what to do with this system.

Power Steering


Has anyone gave Saturn any hard time over this power steering issue yet? Looks to me like this is a very WELL KNOWN problem for Saturn's but nothing's been done to solve it. Even newer Saturns have this problem, especially just when the car's out of the lousy warranty that we have. Someone's got to take action, may be a sour law suit would do the job.

2004 Saturn Ion - Power Steering Problem


The motor on the power steering is overheating which causes the thermal overloads to trip.

go tho the junk yard and buy a motor for a 2004 thru 206 ion or a 2004 thru 2008 chevy colbalt.

they are all the same. You may have to buy the wholle steering colum but you can remove the motor with 2 - 12mm bolts and a quick dissconnect pulg. Replace just the motor as the whole steering colum is a bit more complicated. the dealerships want you to replace the whoe steering colum, in fact that is the only way they sell the parts. It is a scam. Just the motor needs to be replaced.
I have done it on 4 different ions. try to get a motor with few as possible miles and as new as possible. I have paid between $50 and $125 for these. The dealer wants $900 fnad about $500 to install. It is very simple to do. Only 2 bolts.
