Security light blinks when key is turned to on and will not start, also is the key supposed to be coded? 2003 saturn vue 2.2


Ok to learn the key you have to do what is call 10 minute learn , turn the key to start in attempt to start the car without turning the key off after you do this leave the key on for 10 minute until light goes out, After the security light goes out turn key off for a second or two and then try to start. If you have a new key you have to do a 30 minute learn you have to do the same thing as you did for the 10 minute learn but 3 time try and start without turning key off wait 10 minutes until security goes out then try and start again and leave key on, after you do this 3 time (30 minutes) the 3rd time is where you turn the key of for a second or two before starting.

We have replaced the ignition switch in our 2003 saturn ion. How do we reset the passlock?


Leave the key in the on position for 10 minutes until the security light stops flashing. Turn the key off and wait 5 sec. If it starts and dies, leave the key on for 10 min. again. You might have to leave the key on 3 times. While you are doing this have a battery charger on it. If the battery goes dead. (You might have the key on for 30 min if you have to do it 3 times the battery might get low) you will have to start all over.

I had my ignition cylinder & housing replaced now my car won't start. How do I reset the passlock system so my car will start


Hello, Try this: Get in car, turn the key to start, when it don't start let key come back to run (do not turn off) The security light should be blinking, let car set for about ten minutes or until security light stays on steady at that time turn key off for 10 seconds then turn back on (do not go to start) security light will be blinking again wait 10 minutes and security light should go out. Turn key off, wait 10 seconds . Turn key on (do not go to start) security light will be blinking again, wait 10 minuets and security light will go out. AT THIS TIME TURN KEY OFF FOR 10 SECONDS THEN START THE CAR.

2003 saturn ion will not start somtimes


The security interlock on the ignition switch goes bad. The ignition switch needs replaced. (about $35 from the dealer) It takes about 30 minutes to replace and another 30 minutes to "learn" your key. The car locks out for 10 minutes when it fails so if you look in th emanual there is a procedure to override the lockout but it won't work for 10 minutes. Google the problem there are procedures for the switch replacement and learning the key with the new ignition switch.

2003 Saturn Ion will not start. Security lock is on.


The fix for this problem is well known, so is the cause. GM needs to step up in my opinion. You can fix it yourself if you're willing
