2006 Saturn Ion dies while driving

My 2006 Saturn Ion dies while I am driving down the road. After it has already died, the battery icon will light up and then the check engine light comes on. If I let it sit for a few minutes I can start it right back up and it will drive fine for a couple of days (the check engine light even turns off again) I took it to Auto Zone while the check engine light was on and after trying 2 different coders I was told that the coder wasn't even registering that it was hooked to an engine. Any ideas?

Probably something shorting out. This is something that probably isn't going to be easy to figure out. You need someone that can diagnose it in person

Hopefully it is only your fuel filter needing to be replace, or worse your fuel pump may need replacement. Check the fuel pressure on the fuel injector rail. You can use a tire pressure gauge, but wear eye protection, make sure the engine is off but ignition switch turned all the way toward start, and be careful you don't get sprayed.

Why did my 2004 saturn ion died while driving?

First thing to check is your oil level. If low it will shut down. Check your alternator if it goes out then it will drain battery then shut down. Need more info. Need to know gauges when it shut down. Hope this helps

I have a 2006 saturn ion-2 the battery keeps dying and wont stay charged. Whats going on with it?

If the battery is new, and you are sure it is ok, either the alternator is not charging the battery or there is something in the car that is using power when the key is off.
You could disconnect the battery at night to see if it stays charged, and-or have the alternator output checked.

I have a 06 saturn ion, automatic, i left my lights on, my battery died so i got a jump start, now the check engin light is on, the power steering indicator is on, the speedometer doesnt work and when

most of the time people unknowingly jump start the vehicle and blow the steering fuse in the engine compartment-this is a very common problem that I have seen at least 2x a week. The check engine light is probably related to a battery voltage low code or an electronic steering code. Check your owners manual for the location of the fuse and just replace it.

Check engine dash icon suddenly came on. Car has

A lot of diffrerent things can cause the check engine icon to come on.
Good idea to have the 2006 ION scanned by a technician with their equipment to pinpoint the problem.

I would not say anything else until more data is gathered.

Good luck on this one.

2006 Saturn ION, Pwr steering light came on then the odometer quit working, then the engine light came on, the transmission would then not down shift while driving. All happened at the same time.

its possible that there is an electrical short circuit to ground on your steering system, check your fuses and relays to see if any are blown or not operating the transmission and engine would shut down as a safety precaution in this case
