It maybe both. If the alarm is built into the ECM you can try disconnecting the Negetive battery terminal to reset the ECM. Make sure all the fuses are good for the alarm and for the trunk release. If the alram is not incorporated in the ECM remove the in-line fuse from the power line of the alarm to reset the alarm. This should resolve the problem if the problem is the alarm and not the release.

My 2003 Saturn Ion remote trunk release won't


Check to make sure the button on the trunk latch is turned from manual unlock...they made that feature so only the key will work to open the trunk that way if someone breaks in the front of your car they can't hit the trunk release and get into the trunk...may be the same thing for your remote. Hope that helps.

Alarm keeps going off.


the alarm is tied into the body module, cannot be disconected. module sees one of your access points open. do all the locks work with the key? is it an original key? try unlocking trunk or passenger door with key. this should kill the alarm

Saturn won't start/ key problems


You need to program the system,it's probally in theft deterrent mode & disables the starter.To program your new remote locate the diagnostic connector under the drivers side of dash.To program the new remote Jumper a paper clip between the #4 & #8 terminal you will hear the locks cycle & the trunk will pop.While the terminalsv are jumped hold down lock & Unlock on the remote at the same time until you hear the locks cycle again,remove the jumper wire or paper clip & you should be good.

Keyless remote won't open my trunk


Dear Snueman

You ruined the release mechanism ! :(

1) Check if you hear any 'Click' when the car is idle and your ear to the trunk area......while presing the remote
If nothing than >

2)Check to see if the trunk hinges are bent - by bringing the trunk lid to the closing point ...slooowly...you can see with a flash light if the locking mechanism is off track.

3) Last but not least ....get in the trunk with a flashlight ...a bit like in a kidnap-movie
.have a ( Friendly !) relative close the trunk on you ....and watch the locking mecahnism from the INSIDE ..... if nothing found ......better get out ....!

4) Check to see if the wire leading to the engine is not cut along the line

Good luck .
