The problem is most likely on the transmission range selector switch, this is on th top of the transmission and has a multi-wire connector going to it, a shaft goes through it and the trans shift cable is connected there.

SOURCE: battery

when changing the battery, it's in the trunk, so you have to have a battery with those special vent holes on the side. this can be very dangerous if you don't vent your battery with those hoses.  most auto part stores do not carry them.  try a battery store.  and if the battery doesn't fix the problem, change your alternator.

I have a 2005 Saturn Ion. It has been hard to start as of late. Today it would not start at all. It makes a clicking sound followed by a low whir noise. The lights come on as does the radio. What do you...

this sounds to me like your battery is dieing. keep in mind that your starter draws a lot of amps and your radio and lights do not. your best bet is to take your battery out of your vehicle and down to your local auto zone or advance auto and have them charge/test it for you. this costs nothing and they will be able to tell you if you have any dead cells in your battery or if it just needed a charge. if it turns out that it just needed a charge then you most likely have a bad alternator. once you get home with the freshly charged battery and start your vehicle head straight back to the auto parts store to let them check your alternator for you (also free) hope this helps

My saturn ion 2005, 2.2l engine will not turn over, is it the ignition switch?

That sounds like battery--wiring-or starter. Check the battery voltage. It should be 12.6. volts with engine off. Clean the battery terminals.

Cars battery needs a jump at times, had the battery load tested came back with no proiblem. No lights are left on during the time it sits outside at work at night. Need Help Thank You

Most of the time this occurs due a "bad" or going bad car Alternator. I would first check the wiring at the Alternator and the battery wires. Also it could just be a lose Alternator connector.
But get you alternator tested..
If alternator comes back fine you then you have a bad ground or positive wire which would definitely drain your battery.

I have a 2007 saturn ion, the battery is dead do to forgetting to shut the headlights off, now the key is stuck in the ignition and no way to open the trunk to get to the battery. Is there anyway to the...

Well, the first answer is right but doesn't solve the problem and the second answer is wrong as the battery is in the trunk.

Just had the exact same problem. Battery dead on 2005 ion due to head lights left on which causes the key to stick in ignition.

Could not get to the battery in trunk because key stuck and power trunk switch also dead (no battery power, catch 22).

Solution: I hooked up a battery charger to the positive terminal under the hood by the fuse box and the negative to the engine block and charged it for 20 minutes. You could also jump it using the same terminals.

I have a 2003 saturn ion and the battery light is on, does this mean the alternator is going and the car is running on battery power?, the lights, radio,wipers etc are working.

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

It should really be on the battery #1 and #2, aren't all cars pretty much running on a 12v or 24v system these days?
