Turn the key on and try to start it. The security light should be flashing. Leave the key on for 10 minutes until the security light stops flashing. Turn the key off for 5 seconds. Then turn the key to start again. It won't start. Leave it in the run position for 10 minutes again. After the security light stops flashing, turn the key off for 5 seconds. Try to start a 3rd time. Leave the key on again till the light stops flashing. Turn the key off for 5 sec. On the next key cycle to start it should start and run and the security light should go off. Also leave a battery charger on the car the whole time you are doing this. Just on low amp. If the battery goes dead during the procedure, you will have to start all over again.

Power stering failure saturn ion 2006


Hey Alex , what would you like to know ? Your vehicle has Electronic power steering , controlled by a control module .
The electric power steering (EPS) system reduces the amount of effort needed to steer the vehicle. The system uses the body control module (BCM), power steering control module (PSCM), torque sensor, discrete battery voltage supply circuit, EPS motor, serial data bus, and the instrument panel cluster (IPC) message center to perform the system functions. The PSCM, torque sensor, not the EPS motor are serviced separately from each other or from the steering column. Any EPS components diagnosed to be malfunctioning requires replacement of the steering column assembly, also known as the EPS assembly.
They had a recall on these systems ! Suggest you take it to a GM dealer , Chevy , Cadillac , Buick , etc.....

2004 Saturn Ion Power Steering


To fix the power steering problem with the 2004 Saturn Ion is simple, replace the power steering motor. It is held on with two bolts, one bolt is difficult to get to because it is hard to see. Remove the two gold bolts and unplug the motor. Put the new motor in and plug it in and you are good to go. The part number is: 20995579 and I paid $187.53 and it only took me 20 minutes. Twenty minutes because one bolt is hard to reach. You will find the motor up under the dash board where the brake pedal is, up by the steering column. You will have to lay on your back and look up, there are 4 silver bolts - leave those alone, they are part of the motor, it is the two gold bolts you need to remove. Good luck to all of you, it worked for me. You do not need expensive repairs or the entire steering column replaced!!! I reported this problem to Saturn and they are not at this time doing a recall. I am a 50 yr old female and did the repair myself!!

06 saturn ion 2.2 power steering ligt comes on


There is no fluid in that system. You may have a relay going bad or something. With these electrical issues, I would go see the dealership since not many shops will know what to do with this system.

Power Steering


Has anyone gave Saturn any hard time over this power steering issue yet? Looks to me like this is a very WELL KNOWN problem for Saturn's but nothing's been done to solve it. Even newer Saturns have this problem, especially just when the car's out of the lousy warranty that we have. Someone's got to take action, may be a sour law suit would do the job.

I have a 2006 Saturn ION as well and the PWR STR light came on and the power steering went out. When i turn off the car and turn back on it's fine for a while but goes out again in a day or so. I called Saturn and they said it is the power steering which is electric and to fix it i would have to replace the whole steering column! If it is not the fuses which i haven't checked yet then it will cost me $850.00 to replace. that's not counting whatever else they find and charge me for. I was looking under 2004 Saturn Ion and they have a lot of the same issues. I don't know where to look for the fuses at though I'm thinking under the steering wheel if anyone knows please let me know.

Thanks

Mom!
