Question about 2003 Saturn ION
Posted by Anonymous on
I had this problem as well, and found the fix is actually quite easy. My issue was with the door sensor on the drivers door, but it could be any of the door sensors I imagine. The way I checked was by rolling down all the windows and closing all the doors and locking with the remote, engaging the alarm. Next, open each door individually through the rolled down window; if the alarm sounds then the door sensor is working.
First you need to turn off your vehicle. Next, below and to the left of the steering column is a small storage compartment. Open this up and press the sides together, the door should come out. Remove the storage compartment door and reach inside to the left, where you will find the sensor that tells your car if the door is open or closed. Remove the sensor and inside you'll find three pins which have either accumulated grease and grime or have shifted out of position. Clean them off or reposition them so that you have a solid connection and press in the button to check that your lights go off (should take 20 seconds). If the light goes out (make sure you have your dome light positioned to "door") then your problem should be fixed.
Hoped this helps you and others!
