Question about Saturn L300

3 Answers

The car: Saturn Ion Special Edition 2004 The problem: Car was rear ended in an accident and after repairing the car the Valet Lock was not available from Saturn Parts. The order number in the Saturn Parts Devision was defaulted to a standard latch. I need the valet lock for the business I am involved with. The current question: If the part from Saturn is not available, is there an alternate/generic replacement valet lock system that can be obtained and installed in this vehicle to make it whole again. The car looks brand new and the valet lock will complete the repair. Many Thanks, Mike Spector ospcca@carolina.rr.com - 1-704-846-8855

    Thank you for your initial effort. I have tried calling their 800 numberr and their local number early in the afternoon and on both lines there was a female voice answering service. I waited the entire rest of the afternoon awaiting for a response. No response! Guess they were too busy. Vacation Day? Don't know. But so far I can't say one way or the other until I can get a response. I did leave telephone numbers and email address. Still not entirely happy as yet, Mike Spector

    Hello there, to my knowledge there is no way to install a third party valet system. Are you certain that Saturn can't get you a new valet key? I just called the local Saturn dealer here in Minnesota and they told me that it is indeed possible to get a new valet key for a 2004 Ion... You may want to call the main Saturn customer service number, not sure if thats who you've tried, but here it is 800-553-6000.I'm pretty sure they are open on Saturday. I imagine this can't be the number you are trying, there will definitely be a live person there during business hours.Hope this helps! Tim Dear Tim: I've done this research you did already. I would not have contacted you guys and paid a fee to hear the same thing I did before paying a fee to you folks for your expertise. I do not need a key - the key that bypasses the "valet protection system" is the same key as the ignition key. Just like installing a CB radio or other peripheral electronic device in any brand car, I need your help in finding a generic valet system that my mechanics who repaired the car promised to install. Let us, please, "go back to the well" and find the system that may be found in a Lexus, Cadillac, Accura, or preferably any other GM car as such as a Saturn and until Pensky gets them - Saturn is still made by the same company that makes a Chevy! There has got to be some company out there that makes such an add on valet security package. You guys are the experts in finding stuff - Please find what I need. Many Thanks, Mike Spctor

    There has to be a generic valet protection system kit out there made by some manufacturer. It should be as easy to install as a sterio rado with speakers. A bit of know how a screwdriver, plyers, wire nuts and it's in!! Someone outside of Saturn sourced their valet system to Saturn. Of course Saturn will say they do not make it anymore. I found that out before I paid you guys a fee to help me. So "show your stuff". You have comments that you guys are better than "sliced bread" at finding resources for the needy. I need your help!

2006 Saturn Ion 2 - Key stuck in ignition and will not turn off.


1) the NHTSA will do nothing as its not a safety issue, as a lock cylnder can never lock up a steering wheel while in the run position..it is impossible.
2) most times it not a quality problem with the lock cylnder but that people have too many keys and things on their key ring and that weight ruins the lock cylnder

Changing front breaks on 2004 Saturn ion?


Hey man I just changed the brakes on my wifes 2004 Ion, and it is pretty standard stuff. The hardest problem I found was getting the Piston to go back in. I used a C- Clamp to tighten it up and push it back in. I hope this works for you. Just do one side and leave the other together so you have something to refer back to.
