Question about 2004 Saturn ION
I own a 2004 saturn ion and having issues with the light for power steering too. There is NO power steering fluid!!!!!!!! saturn's use hydraulics for there power steering. I took mine to the dealership and they said that to fix it you have to replace the whole steering column. But it isnt a gurantee that it will fix it.

Should be a cap under the hood that says power steering fluid

It should be on the drivers side and it looks like the oil dipstick. Usually the top of the handle is shaped like a " T ". Most of the time it will be yellow and say trans on it. It may be lower than the oil dipstick. Good luck.

The motor on the power steering is overheating which causes the thermal overloads to trip.
go tho the junk yard and buy a motor for a 2004 thru 206 ion or a 2004 thru 2008 chevy colbalt.
they are all the same. You may have to buy the wholle steering colum but you can remove the motor with 2 - 12mm bolts and a quick dissconnect pulg. Replace just the motor as the whole steering colum is a bit more complicated. the dealerships want you to replace the whoe steering colum, in fact that is the only way they sell the parts. It is a scam. Just the motor needs to be replaced.
I have done it on 4 different ions. try to get a motor with few as possible miles and as new as possible. I have paid between $50 and $125 for these. The dealer wants $900 fnad about $500 to install. It is very simple to do. Only 2 bolts.
