Question about 2005 Saturn ION

1 Answer

I just picked up a 2005 Saturn Ion 1. Just under 80,000 miles & clean title. The odometer and trip odometer are not working. Is this a part failure, or a PCM reset? Any thoughts?

An ignition module was replaced earlier this summer. My niece - whom I bought the car from - does not recall if the odometer worked after this.

If the speedometer works the defect is in the instrument cluster. If it does not then a diagnostic will be needed as there are several possibilities.

Testimonial: "Thank you! I see that I can buy warranted used instruments clusters fairly cheaply. When I install the "different" cluster, will the odometer show the correct miles that are on MY vehicle?"

2005 Subaru Outback. Trip odometer suddenly said Err 55, cruise control started flashing, ABS lit up, and check engine light had come on. I noticed a day later that the regular odometer had frozen,


I found this under Fixya; 2006 Subaru Outback; there were 25 answers: The problem is not with an emission issue as you would expect with a check engine light. The ER 55 code on the odometer means that there is a loss of communication with the ECU, that is why the check engine light is on and cruise light flashing. for what ever reason whenever your check engine light comes on the cruise becomes disabled. Lame I know. I work in the service department and have seen this issue a lot. The only real way to fix this issue is to go the dealer and have them do a reflash for your vehicle. If the ECU is bad it is covered under the federal emmission wrty for 8 years or 80,000 miles

2005 saturn ion 141k miles on it. when you start car it runs real rough, put on a code reader and it read miss fires all cylinders.


Try this; get the car in an area that is as dark as possible, open the hood and let it idle. Allowing several minutes for your eyes to adjust to the dark, look for any sparks around the ignition wiring. My Saturn (now junked-too many problems) needed all plug wires replaced in under 3 years.

2009 toyota tacoma service engine light...how do i turn it off


if you are talking about the maintanence due, light it's quite simple; turn the key on' with the engine off. make sure that the odometer is in the odometer mode and not one of the trip settings. if it is in a trip setting reset to odometer mode. now turn the key off and push the the odometer reset button and hold it, turn on the key(don't release yet) and wait ill the odometer reads 000000. you are now done. if you are talking about the "check engine" or the "service engine soon"light, then your problems are a little more complicated then that and indicate that the computer has picked up a signal from one of the many sensors indicating a problem in one of the monitored systems. being as since this is a 2009 vehicle it should be under warranty regardless of weather you are the first owner or not as long as it's under 36,000 miles for non emission and 80,000 miles for emission related repairs

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.
