Question about 2006 Saturn ION

Open Question

I have a problem with my 2006 saturn ion. sometimes when i turn, the car will automatically shut off, and i will have to wait a few seconds and restart the car. this started happening, occasionally, about 2 years ago, but it is happening more frequently recently. i have taken the car to the dealership to be serviced, and have been told that it is from too many keys to the fuel injection needed to be cleaned, but they have never satisfied the problem. can you please tell me what may be the cause of this problem?

SOURCE: clock

Make sure the radio is on to set the clock.  Then with the radio on, press the clock button. The field you will be setting will flash (hour, ect).  Just turn the tuner dial while this is flashing.  Then when you have it set how you want, press the clock button again. The next field will flash and you do the same thing.  When it is all set, just don't touch anything.  It will take the new info you have put in after several seconds.   Need a Rocket Scientist degree for this clock!

SOURCE: key stuck at ACC position

A bit too late to help you I know, but this may help others. The problem is most likely a small lever arm microswitch that is oriented with the lever arm DOWN located just beneath the drivers side of the shifter. This is an interlock switch which prohibits starting the Ion in anything but park or neutral. There is nothing that holds the switch on the two posts that it mounts on and it is quite awkward to put back on. I strongly recommend using a small strip of double sided 3M tape on the side of the microswitch to prevent it from coming off in future. When this switch is not made, it will not allow the ignition switch to turn to the off position from ACC and it will not allow it to release the key. However, if you do not feel comfortable performing the repair, there is a 'secret access hole' under the steering colum, it is a small square door you can pry off so that you can put your finger in to it an depress a small round button that will allow you to rotate the key to OFF and remove it. And yes, you pretty much need three arms and have to stand on your head to do this, but, it will allow you to turn off the ACC and remove the key.

SOURCE: saturn ion fuel pump

Misnikie32 . .. I just had the same problem around the time you figured out your problem and I just got it fixed yesterday. For almost 3 weeks I had starting problems and I constantly smelled gas. The problem is a safety issue and the car needs to be recalled. The hose that is connected to the fuel pump is cracked. Since the hose is incorporated with the fuel pump, the entire mechanism needs to be changed. Look at spending about 700.00 . I informed saturn and told them my life was at danger. Please contact them on their website and goto your state's attorney general and launch a complaint, as well as the office of defective investigations and the NTSAB (google them). This needs to be brought to their attention and all owners of this car. I googled this and many other people are having this problem. Some are even on this forum. PLEASE DO THIS ! ! ! !

SOURCE: 2006 saturn ion door locks and trunk pop wont work....

The remote won't ework because the problem is in the vehicle. Just for test purposes and possible remedy. Remove and clean the negative battery cable. Ensure a clean , tight connection. Then find the body ground. Yhis ground is locted usually at the top rear of the engine. .I's a snall stainless steel strap bolted to the engine and fire wall, This must olsobe clean with a good contack. Might as well clean the + cable and connection on the battery while you are there. Good luck and keep me posted olease. Good Luck, Ned_

I have a 2006 Saturn ION that sometimes when it is cold will not start. The radio works, lights all work, car won't start. Wait about 15 to 20 minutes and then it will start?


I have a 2005 Saturn ION with same problem. I took it to a mechanic and after resding computer codes, it appears this is a somewhat common issue; replacing the ignition switch is recommended and the cost is somewhere in the $300.00 range. I have read about one person that said that even with replacement, the problem returned about a month or so later. Suggest if you pay for the issue that you save the receipt so when/if there is an official recall, you may be able to by reimbursed for the repair through the recall. Some have opted to bypass the security system with some success.

2006 Saturn ION2 won't start. Happens every few


This is a very common problem with the Saturn. It's a bad ignition switch. You need to replace it.

Google on common saturn problems and you'll see that hundred of Saturn owners have had this very problem.

It's really amusing how each dealer prances around it and doesn't tell their customers that it's a common problem. If you bring it to them they will know right away what the problem is but they may pretend not to know right away...EVERY Saturn dealer has fixed this on dozens and dozens of their vehicles...

How do you lock a saturn 2007 ion car's door with a key?


Put the key into the keyhole and turn it counter clockwise. Now, if you want to lock all doors without using the key or the remote key fob, you can press the lock button your door. The car will chime a few times, then shut your door. About 5 seconds later, all doors will lock. Neat, huh?

I have a 2006 Saturn ION as well and the PWR STR light came on and the power steering went out. When i turn off the car and turn back on it's fine for a while but goes out again in a day or so. I called Saturn and they said it is the power steering which is electric and to fix it i would have to replace the whole steering column! If it is not the fuses which i haven't checked yet then it will cost me $850.00 to replace. that's not counting whatever else they find and charge me for. I was looking under 2004 Saturn Ion and they have a lot of the same issues. I don't know where to look for the fuses at though I'm thinking under the steering wheel if anyone knows please let me know.

Thanks

Mom!
