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

My Saturn ion won't start in cold weather. sfter waiting 10 mins it starts with no problem


sounds like a plugged fuel filter,,,changed it lately?? what might be occurring is,,after turning the engine over for a few minutes,,it just cant get the fuel,,,then after sitting the fuel slowly goes threw the filter,, and you get enough for the engine to start,,,clean filters are a must,,,give this some thought,,,their about 10 bucks if you change it yourself.

I have a 2003 Saturn I just purchased off someone and not sure why my car wouldn't start for me the other day. It started and stalled right away. Then I waited 10-15 minutes and tried again and unlocked...


saturns are normally very dependable vehicles.if it was cold out when you started it and it died,sometimes cars do that.they take to much gas and flood themselves out especially when it's cold. your car should start without you pressing on the gas pedal at all because it's fuel injected.i don't know of a security issue with a saturn.if you are concerned about being stranded check local auto clubs that provide towing,unlock services,out of gas services,flat tire changes. AAA is a good service to be a member of. thank you for choosing fixya.com

2004 Saturn Ion wont start from time to time when it is cold outside.. Like this morning my daughter went outside and the car started right up with the temp outside 7 degrees. She warmed it up for awhile...


LOL repeating questions. Its your ignition switch. its a common problem with ions ( I myself have a 04 ion and had it replaced twice in 3 years) repair is around 400 dollars with labor. Just google "ion not starting in cold weather" and youll get TONS of threads. No recall either its stupid

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.
