Question about 2003 Saturn ION

LED light will not go off...i had to replace battery finally..is this the problem?

After five years of no problems with my battery, i have suddenly had the battery die three times in a row. I couldnt figure out what has been causing the drain in the battery other than the five years its been in my car. Now suddenly i noticed this afternoon that my car radio LED doesnt go off after ive been leaving the car...could this be the problem with the draining of the cars battery? It seems like an awfully small thing that wouldnt run off of alot of electricity. But i might be wrong...does anyone have any input? thanks.

I had the same problem it turned out to be my ignition switch of all things... sometimes it would turn on and sometimes not... I called AAA on 4 occasions my regular mechanic could not find anything on the diagnostic test and recommend I go the inexpensive route and replace the battery. It was not the battery I ended up taking it to the dealership the experts to give it a diagnostic and it turned out to be the ignition switch, never had problems since.

Where did you buy the alternator? Charge the battery and have them both tested.

start the car and pull off on side of the battery and if the car shuts off your alternator is bad if the battery wont stay charged its the battery .If you have a meter check the voltage to the battery it should be around 14.3 volts .

MY 2002 FORD T-BIRD WAS IN STORAGE FOR 6 MONTHS WITH A BATTERY TENDER. IT WON'T START, JUST CRANKS.THIS HAPPENED LAST YEAR. IT FINALLY STARTED AFTER ABOUT 1000 ATTEMPTS. LAST YEAR WE HAD NOT USED A BATTERY...


I've got an old corvette that I store also. I basically disconnect the battery and when I'm ready I charge it for 3 hrs, then start the car. Usually get close to 6 and a half years out of a battery. Five ain't so bad.

Car slow to start in the morning, will start after


If it is cranking intermittently then there are lots of items to check. First is your battery in good health? Five years old is old in car life for batteries. Does it have the correct battery? Is the water in the battery at a correct level? Are the connections very clean and tight. Does the engine block have a strong ground connection. Is your starter OK? Starting relay good?
I once had a Camry that gave me fits with intermittent starting. I attached an indicator light in the cab, that was connected directly to the starter solenoid. When you turn the key the light would come on. Finally one time when it did not start but the light was ON then the problem was in the starter! It was in the soleniod, bad, charred connections. Intermittent problem are the worst! Good luck.

When I turn the key on my car the radio and inside lights come on


I had the same problem for about five months, sometimes the car started for two months than all of a sudden it make take anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour to get it to turn over. Final analysis (when it finally would not start for two days) a new starter was needed. (2001 Cadillac STS)
