If the PassLock light is blinking when you experience this issue then your problem may be the ignition switch. This is a know problem with these vehicles. The repair is actually simple.

Disconnect the negative battery terminal.

Remove the switch. Open the switch unit up. (it has clips holding it together.) Clean the grease from the components and replace with a low temp dielectric grease. Put the unit back together and reinstall.

I started my 2004 Saturn Ion up and noticed that the Battery indicator light came on as usual but did not turn off. The car seems to be running fine. This is the first time this has happened? What could...

Well it probably means that you are about to have to get a new battery, if i were you i would go ahead and go to your local autostore and get a new battery. Hope this helps.

2004 saturn ion does not start on a regular basis. After trying to start it and you try it again after starts. The battery is fine and all electrical works.

We were having problems with my son's 2004 Saturn Ion. The first thing that started flashing was the power steering warning, so fixed that by replacing the fuses. It kept flashing and then the coolant light came on and it wouldn't start. The battery was fine and well charged. We finally asked a friend who manages a vehicle service center for assistance. The Ion has a standard transmission and that was the problem. After only 15 minutes, they found the clutch switch was just a little loose. So they tightened it and the car popped right off and all the flashing warning lights disappeared. An easy fix but the car sat in our garage for 6 weeks as we couldn't find the solution!

2004 Saturn Ion blinker problem!

Usually when the turnsignal blinks rapid this is a indicator that the turn signal bulbs is blown, you will need to check both the front and rear signal to see which is not working, and then change the blown bulb or bulbs.
