SOURCE: 2005 saturn ion

I am not a mechanic and have had no problems with my 2005 Ion-2 but at msn/autos I see that these can exhibit a starting problem because of the ignition switch which they recommend replacing. The part is around $40 & the labor is 1 hr.

SOURCE: 2003 saturn ion 3 driver side window won't roll down

It may mean a bad switch, regulator, or motor.

You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you can test the switch to see if it's the switch that's broken. If not, you can then pull off the weather seal and access the insides of the door

SOURCE: how doyou disarm the factory alarm system in a

The security alarm system on the 1994 Jeep Cherokee arms itself on any normal exit from the vehicle, i.e. ignition off, open door, lock door with power door locks, close door. If the doors are locked with the key, it does not arm.
If the battery is disconnected, then reconnected, the alarm system will go into powerup alarm mode. The lights will flash, but the horn will not blow.
The alarms can be disarmed by a keyless vehicle remote or by unlocking either of the front doors or the read lift gate with the key. If the key method does not work with any of those three entrances, there is a problem either with the input to the alarm module or the module itself.
There is a switch in both front doors and the tailgate which is activated by manualy unlocking those doors. The alarms can be disabled by permanently grounding the wire going from either of those switches to the alarm module, but this will remove all theft protection.
The best thing to do is to find out why the system is going off in the first place. It could just be a glitch, a loose connection that can be fixed fairly easily and keep your theft protection intact.

Engine ticked very loudly, then heard a loud boom and oil was everywhere. car turns over but wont start

I think one or more of your crankshaft bearings has broken, and the following scenario is as you describe. The without support of the bearings, the crancshaft has knocked around, and smashed its way out through the engine block, hence the oil everywhere.

The solution is to get a new/used engine, but dont shift out any of the electronics, then you may get some problems with immobolizers and so on.
Good luck.

Hey i was in a car accident and the side of my 2006 mercury milan and it wont start it just try's to turn over but there's spark but it juust wont start? the impact was pretty hard broke tire hub......

The gas shut off valve must be tripped. Not sure where it is try looking in your manual. When you find it press the button to reset it. Sometimes in kick plates,under hood, or rear compartments. Good luck.

I had extensive front right side damage due to a accident, the good news is that I was able to get the parts I needed at a fairly reasonable price from LKQ (aftermarket), however I'm a single mom trying to...

the hood is made of a pretty flexible Aluminum alloy, should be fairly easy to bend back, if there arent any creases. And the Hood Brackets are pretty simple to bend back, because they are made of a pretty maliable metal as well, you can probably use a hammer and wood block to bend it back. good luck, and dont bungee the hood any more!

'03 Toyota Camry vibrating

vibrations will still persist even you change parts involved in the accidents if:
1. Camber and alignment were misplaced during the impact of your accidents.
solution: Have your wheels aligned and cambered
2. Have your tires and rims balance and checked for deformity.
3. inspect your front chassis or that part of your cars body that holds your steering and suspension for any deformity.
Last part could be solved only by a good car tinsmith
