If when you turn it over..if you get a ticking sound it is a possibility that your battery terminals need to be loosened and cleaned then retightened this is the quickest and cheapest way to check this problem sometimes a loose or dirty terminal will cause this problem also depends on the age of your battery

2007 saturn ion wont start

Need more information. Is the battery good? Does it turn over? if the battery is good and it won't turn over you could have a stuck start solenoid (Tap with wrench) or the relay that energizes the starter is bad. I just replaced the relay which is part of a connector under the dash on my 98 SC2, after a new battery and an indication of no voltage to the started when the key was in the start position. works now

2003 saturn ion wont turn over at all dont even get the usall starter clicking just one click every once in awhile

How to voltage drop test starter motor circuit Looking at a wiring diagram an testing the starter circuit with a DMM - digital multi-meter is the way to find the problem . Free wiring diagram's here Enter vehicle info. year , make , model an engine size. Under system click on engine then under subsystem click on starting . Click the search button then the blue link .
Looking at the diagram you will see this starting circuit is computer controlled . Ignition switch is a low voltage input to the BCM - body control module. A message to the ECM - engine computer from the BCM requesting a start over the serial data network (class2) will energize the relay sending B+ voltage to the S terminal on the starter solenoid . Your best bet mite be to have it towed to a qualified repair shop.

Sounds to me like you have a bad ground connection, check your battery ground and your body ground. Hope this helps.

I turn ignition on wont turn over,everything else works. Wats the problem ? 06 Saturn Ion 3

Seams that your starter has failed.
You can check it if you have a volt meter.
1. Fist check for 12v at the main large post on your starter solenoid.
2.Then place your meter on the 2nd large post its the one with the braided wire that enters the starter.. Then turn the ignition on as you would to start it.If you have 12v there then your starter motor has failed and you need to replace it.
hope this helps FixYa

Coolant message,n reduced engine power light is on, wont start

Your battery is too weak to turn the starter. The starter takes much more power than the lights or anything else.

We have a 2003 Saturn Ion that has intermittent starting problems. The problem occurs at all temperatures. If we wait 5-15 minutes it will start. Have replaced the battery and starter My girlfriends...

Take the car in, and have the fuel pump checked, and maybe the alternater. Something in there is going out. Could even be lose battery cables, or a lose connection. Either way, you should have it checked before you get stuck somewhere.
