Question about 2005 Saturn ION
When I get into my car and turn it on it starts fine, but when I put it into gear the doors don't lock automatically and when I manually hit the door lock button the driver side lock pops back open. Also the Map Light(s) do not dim for about a minuet, which is much longer than before.
Also, when I try to lock the car with the clicker the car alarm will go off within 3-4 minuets of setting the locks, but the driver door is always unlocked, I assume it is popping open like when I am in the car, and the car thinks it is getting broke into and the alarm goes off.
Finally, after I got home and parked the car, closed the doors, ect, the dome light and both map lights would not go off. I manually turned off the dome light and with some fiddling (I really dont know how) the map lights went off.
I have a 2006 Ion that is giving me problems with the alarm, first the alarm was going off all night for no reason witch caused the battery to drain, ones I remove the battery to be recharge at Pepboys and reinstalled the alarm still goes off and now the radio doesn't have any lights on, radio is compleatly dead!! please help me out!!!

It sounds like you are having a problem with the ecm which is the electronic control module which is the BRAIN of your entire car. Also when this happens everything goes haywire as if the car is acting retarded because the ecm is not receiving the proper codes on how to perform and remember the ecm is a computer that could have corrosion or rust on the connection points. check this ok that might help.
