First eliminate the switch as being the problem. Then buy a NEW lift motor
on ebay or parts america. Call around to auto glass or body shops and get a price for the labor. There are special tools and knowledge required to peel open the door, replace the motor, and put it back together without trashing something out. Worth the 50 bucks or so to have someone else do it who knows what they are doing. I would advise against using a saturn part or dealer unless you have lots of disposable income. I would also advise against putting a used one in there unless you want to do it again soon.

You've already replaced the first 2 things that needed to be checked, now it's time for the motors, or to have a mechanic diagnose your problem...and I would strongly suggest that you take it to an ASE certified mechanic...good luck.

All of a sudden, while driving, slow the power steering on our 2006 Saturn Ion 2 sedan went out and the pwe str light came on; we turned the car off and restarted it and after about 30 seconds it happened...

the electric motors on the column are definitely a problem with these vehicles. The warranty coverage on these was extended and it wouldn't hurt to give your local gm dealer a call to see if you are still covered.

If they determine that you are not covered the repair isn't that costly. The motor will run you about $150 - $250 dollars and the labor will be about an hour or so to replace.

The motors are actually pretty easy to replace. They are held in with 2 bolts and take about 20 minutes to replace.

Power window in my rear driver side window went outn(Saturn Ion 2004). The window stays down. Anything i can do to avoid taking it to a dealer?

Hello. The motor in this door needs to be replaced. The best choice is to purchase the motor and track assembly. It is a little more money than just the motor but you will save on the installation. Do not go to a dealer. Instead call a few mechanic's shops, even body shops. Shop for the best price.

2004 Saturn Ion - Power Steering Problem

The motor on the power steering is overheating which causes the thermal overloads to trip.

go tho the junk yard and buy a motor for a 2004 thru 206 ion or a 2004 thru 2008 chevy colbalt.

they are all the same. You may have to buy the wholle steering colum but you can remove the motor with 2 - 12mm bolts and a quick dissconnect pulg. Replace just the motor as the whole steering colum is a bit more complicated. the dealerships want you to replace the whoe steering colum, in fact that is the only way they sell the parts. It is a scam. Just the motor needs to be replaced.
I have done it on 4 different ions. try to get a motor with few as possible miles and as new as possible. I have paid between $50 and $125 for these. The dealer wants $900 fnad about $500 to install. It is very simple to do. Only 2 bolts.
