SOURCE: saturn ion blower motor

lower settings as far as speeds for your blower motor go through a resister block to reduce the voltage your blower motor receives to make it turn slower. If it turns slow on high you would have to check the voltage at the blower motor, should be the same voltage that would be at the battery. There could also be material in the blower motor fan like things a mouse could have put there. Causes the fan to spin slower and also blocks the fins from pushing air. Any strange noises would be heard unless you have had the prob since you owned it and could not detect any changes. It could be even full of stuff and still
be in balance. but it could be a few other things.

SOURCE: clock

Make sure the radio is on to set the clock.  Then with the radio on, press the clock button. The field you will be setting will flash (hour, ect).  Just turn the tuner dial while this is flashing.  Then when you have it set how you want, press the clock button again. The next field will flash and you do the same thing.  When it is all set, just don't touch anything.  It will take the new info you have put in after several seconds.   Need a Rocket Scientist degree for this clock!

SOURCE: saturn ion fuel pump

Misnikie32 . .. I just had the same problem around the time you figured out your problem and I just got it fixed yesterday. For almost 3 weeks I had starting problems and I constantly smelled gas. The problem is a safety issue and the car needs to be recalled. The hose that is connected to the fuel pump is cracked. Since the hose is incorporated with the fuel pump, the entire mechanism needs to be changed. Look at spending about 700.00 . I informed saturn and told them my life was at danger. Please contact them on their website and goto your state's attorney general and launch a complaint, as well as the office of defective investigations and the NTSAB (google them). This needs to be brought to their attention and all owners of this car. I googled this and many other people are having this problem. Some are even on this forum. PLEASE DO THIS ! ! ! !

Even if the battery is low or has weak connections, there is enough power for accessories but not enough to turn the motor over. A bad solenoid will also cause this

yes if its on when the car is running your alternator may not be charging. You can check with a voltmeter at the alternator when the car runs if you have about 14 volts it works if its only 12.6 and less it doesn't

I have a 2004 Saturn. The radio, cd and clock display just stopped working one day. Checked the fuses. How do I fix this?


If it is a detachable face,make sure the face is on good. If not and you checked the fuses,then you need to check the wireing to the radio. FYI these late model cars have fuses under the hood as well as inside the car.

Radio does not turn on


Saturn Ion's are known for major faulty wiring...This is especially true in the ignition switch when it is cold and the radio going out...The faulty wiring probably ruined your radio...

Need to check the wiring. Sounds like somebody messed with something they shouldn't have. Also check the other fuses...see what else they blew.

Oh, and don't go back to that shop...
