Check the coil or the electronic that connects to the four connections of the spark plug.I hope this helps.If there is any check engine light then you need a diagnostic tool connected to the car in order to read this error code.

We have replaced the ignition switch in our 2003 saturn ion. How do we reset the passlock?


Leave the key in the on position for 10 minutes until the security light stops flashing. Turn the key off and wait 5 sec. If it starts and dies, leave the key on for 10 min. again. You might have to leave the key on 3 times. While you are doing this have a battery charger on it. If the battery goes dead. (You might have the key on for 30 min if you have to do it 3 times the battery might get low) you will have to start all over.

When cold outside my saturn will not start if i wait 30-60 min it starts right up like its the first time i have tried it


you need to replace the ignition switch-very common
dealer cost depending on location could be around $150-that includes the diagnosis they always charge-even if you tell them what is wrong
if you want to attempt it yourself the part should be around $35-$50
book labor time is about 1/2 hour

Have a 2002 ion that sometimes wont start but if left for 10 mins will start up.


I have 2003 Saturn Ion. I had this problem over and over 2006 - 2008. IT IS THE IGNITION SWITCH. IT IS DEFECTIVE IN ALL ION'S.The replacement may be defective also, not sure. Mine was driving fine, went ino store for 1 hr came out stone cold dead, would not start and key **** in. Had to have towed to Saturn. They said it was battery and replaced battery.I said this did not make sense. 6 yr battery only 3 yr old , never weak start, never run down, in summer? It happened again 2 mo later. They tried to say battery , I said no. They checked battery. It was fine. Could not find problem. They did total electrical check. It happened again 1 mo later. drove into feed store. Went in came out it happened again. I got jump from someone 30 min later and started right up. 2 wks later same, I got jump 20 min later started. 1 mo late same. Sometimes it would just start up. Took to another Saturn place. They said Ignition switch, saturn was having big problem with this on Ions. Got changed and no problems for 1 yr. I was talking to repesentative at Saturn Headquarters. I told the problem. They said the ignition switch has an electrical component, or it is hooked to electrical component. THEY SAID IF I HAD JUST SAT THERE 20 MIN WITH KEY OFF, THE COMPUTER CHIP FOR IT WOULD HAVE RESET ITSELF WHEN IT COOLED DOWN AND I COULD HAVE STARTED IT EACH TIME. IT WAS BEST TO GET REPLACED AND NOT WORRY, BUT THIS WILL HELP YOU IN A STRESSFUL PINCH, UNTIL YOU CAN GET THE IGNITION SWITCH REPLACED. NOTE: Go to Auto Zone , O 'Reilleys, Pep Boys etc, get a repair manuel , CHILTON $ 23- $ 25 , for your year , make, model car. CHILTON IS MUCH BETTER THAN HAYES MANUEL. It is wonderful and many things you can do yourself.

Car won't start when it gets cold.


Sir,
You are suggested to check you plug wires they might be getting too much carbon on them and another thing is that you can get your car serviced and air filter clean if not done above 2 weeks.

Issue with 2003 ION 2 not wanting to start


it sound like you have a faulty ignition switch the grease inside of your switch solidifies which does not allow proper contact

2003 Saturn Ion will not start. Security lock is on.


The fix for this problem is well known, so is the cause. GM needs to step up in my opinion. You can fix it yourself if you're willing

2003 ion starting after running


Google Saturn Ignition Lock and you'll see that this is a major problem with these cars. I bought a 2003 Ion in May 2008 and have had it in the shop 3 times for starting problems. I just had the entire ignition lock system replaced last month and so far it's been okay. Saturn will acknowledge that this is a problem, but there is no recall or true fix for it.
