A door-closed switch is failing 'open', I suppose. Most likely the drivers' side one (which gets the most use?), but it could be any. Replace that ******! (Ask for details at the Saturn Parts counter.)

My car automatically locks all the doors once I put it in gear. How do I turn this feature off?


That's a safety feature in case you have kids in the back seats.
You might be able to pull the fuse, bur the fuse may power a lot of other things.

Power windows stopped working and dome lights stay on. Power locks work only with the "clicker" but not on driver door


Look under the hood fuse no. 12 should be for power windows. Or maybe something like a bad ground wire in drivers door harness.

Hi Guest,
I had this problem as well, and found the fix is actually quite easy. My issue was with the door sensor on the drivers door, but it could be any of the door sensors I imagine. The way I checked was by rolling down all the windows and closing all the doors and locking with the remote, engaging the alarm. Next, open each door individually through the rolled down window; if the alarm sounds then the door sensor is working.
To fix:
First you need to turn off your vehicle. Next, below and to the left of the steering column is a small storage compartment. Open this up and press the sides together, the door should come out. Remove the storage compartment door and reach inside to the left, where you will find the sensor that tells your car if the door is open or closed. Remove the sensor and inside you'll find three pins which have either accumulated grease and grime or have shifted out of position. Clean them off or reposition them so that you have a solid connection and press in the button to check that your lights go off (should take 20 seconds). If the light goes out (make sure you have your dome light positioned to "door") then your problem should be fixed.
Hoped this helps you and others!

2006 saturn ion dome light goes on by itself and


When this happened to mine it ended up being a bad door switch. The alarm, dome/map lights and electric door locks are all connected to the door switches. It cost $65 for diagnosis, parts and labor at Saturn of South Burlington VT

2006 Saturn, dome light turns itself on when it's parked.


The car might be "thinking" that one of the doors is ajar,
Check the spring switches in all the door frames to make sure that they are hooked properly, and doing their job. One way to do it is ( if the dome happens to be off) to close and open each door several times, to see if the bad switch stays open and turns the light on, even with the door closed

My ion has went crazy, first the alarm system starting going off at all times, then when put in drive the doors stopped locking and now when you cut it off the radio stops playing, it did stay on for 15...


well the alarm and door lock issue is due to a bad door switch,,,its telling the cars computer the door is open when its not causing the alarm to go off and the locks not to lock its works then doesnt the switch just freak vout then are ok,most likely d/side door switch its actually on the side of the dash a little rod that sticks out,,replace it if it still does it do the other side,but thats a common issue

Locks, Map Light(s) and alarm not working!


it sounds like you are having a problem with the ecm which is the electronic control module which is the BRAIN of your entire car. Also when this happens everything goes haywire as if the car is acting retarded because the ecm is not receiving the proper codes on how to perform and remember the ecm is a computer that could have corrosion or rust on the connection points. check this ok that might help.
