2005 saturn ion electrical problem

When driving the 2005 saturn ion going about 45mph the car shut off and would not restart. The passlock light was on, and where the odometer is it would say "service engine...power steering, coolant" after several attempts at restarting the car it finally started, but then the automatic headlights would not come on, so when we manually turned the headlights on the car would die again. Everytime we got it started and tried to turn something extra on like the wipers or the headlights it would die. any thoughts?

    I am having the same problem, I can be driving, the car will go into a safe mode and I pull over and it will die. I currently just had my car pulled into the parkinglot at work because it died. The battery light came on, and the other dash lights as well. Please help.

Probably something shorting out. This is something that probably isn't going to be easy to figure out. You need someone that can diagnose it in person

I just picked up a 2005 Saturn Ion 1. Just under 80,000 miles & clean title. The odometer and trip odometer are not working. Is this a part failure, or a PCM reset? Any thoughts?


if the speedometer works the defect is in the instrument cluster. If it does not then a diagnostic will be needed as there are several possibilities.

It sounds like the TCC solenoid malfunctioned. The Torque Converter Clutch solenoid is a small electrical switch in the valve body of your transmission that controls the amount of "lock-up" on the torque converter. It sounds disasterous, but its actually an easy fix, and does not require removal of the transmission.

Passlock is the anti theft that is built into your car from GM. If the car is not stalling while driving or having starting issues, it is probably not a problem. It might just be an informative light. If it ends up making your car die or not start, it is a passlock failure which can be expensive.

2006 Saturn ION, Pwr steering light came on then the odometer quit working, then the engine light came on, the transmission would then not down shift while driving. All happened at the same time.


its possible that there is an electrical short circuit to ground on your steering system, check your fuses and relays to see if any are blown or not operating the transmission and engine would shut down as a safety precaution in this case
