Question about 2006 Saturn ION

1 Answer

06 Saturn Ion, starter disengages

First off, I know the starter is good. When this happens, the dash shows a icon of a car with a padlock over it. After many times of arming and disarming the alarm it finally started. I don't have a owners manual so I don't even know what this icon means. Could this mean the battery in the remote keychange is going bad or something on the car. Thanks to anyone who can help me......

The car with a padlock symbol means security system,,,you either have a bad ignition switch causing this issue and or a passlock housing,,,sounds like a normal problem,,,when the ignition switch/passlock housing goes bad it can work sometimes and not others,but it will cuase the car not to start,, i bet there are codes stored in the computer,,you are gonna need to take it to the dealer,,

How do I start a car that shows a padlock and security lock


According to ciddguy: "This car comes standard with an immobilizer unit and a light that comes on when you start the car and remains on during the bulb check and would flash if it indicated you have an improperly coded key and would then shut off the car within 2 seconds but if you have the right key, will go out like normal and let the car continue to run. That same light is also used for the alarm (when equipped) and when you shut off the car and hit the lock button, it'll flash rapidly for several seconds before slowing "blinking mode to indicate the car is armed. That same indicator if found solidly lit is an indicator that someone has attempted to make an unlawful entry and thus the alarm has been activated and as said in the comment above, the EVIC should've said something about unlawful attempted in the display when you get in". Another guy said, "If you read in the middle of the evic it would have read "Break in attempt" that's what happens when the alarm goes off, just turn the car off and turn it back on again :)"

My 06 Saturn ion only clicks when I try to start it


Check to make sure your battery is good. The sound you are probably hearing is the starter cylinoid. You can take it to a parts store (like auto zone) and they will check it for you free of charge.

Saturn ion 2006 shuts off immediately after starting


This sounds like a reset problem. Possibly the ignition interlock ( Just another word for Factory reset code needed for your computer.) Usually the little padlock symbol will be on in dash. Removal of the battery could and usually will fool the computer into thinking the car is being hot wired into starting.

On my Saturn 2003 Ion, the starter makes an extremely loud noise upon turning key in the ignition. The problem is recent and literally sounds like something is going to disengage or break. Otherwise, car...


if noise is only when starting, consider replacing the starter. the mounting bolts could have some loose, or the clutch which disengages the starter gear is not retracting the gear. either situation could cause a loud noise of the starter gear clattering with the ring gear.
