A proper tech diagnosis is needed here. If the recall was to fix the defective ignition switch, and it worked fine up until now, i imagine you got a really bad deal from your dealer. I would definitely call the shop where you had work recently performed to see if they will help you out. They might actually come and tow your car back to get the job done right if you play your cards right.

Do a little research on the ignition switch problem online. There are a few repair kits out there that actually work better than the dealer parts. saturnfans.com has he recall topic on their front page.

Our 2004 Saturn Ion has trouble starting. Seems from internet searches that it's common...what can be done to fix it?


The point may be moot now, but there is a recall on the key cylinder. Go to a GM dealer for more information.

I started my 2004 Saturn Ion up and noticed that the Battery indicator light came on as usual but did not turn off. The car seems to be running fine. This is the first time this has happened? What could...


Well it probably means that you are about to have to get a new battery, if i were you i would go ahead and go to your local autostore and get a new battery. Hope this helps.

I have a 2006 Saturn ION that sometimes when it is cold will not start. The radio works, lights all work, car won't start. Wait about 15 to 20 minutes and then it will start?


I have a 2005 Saturn ION with same problem. I took it to a mechanic and after resding computer codes, it appears this is a somewhat common issue; replacing the ignition switch is recommended and the cost is somewhere in the $300.00 range. I have read about one person that said that even with replacement, the problem returned about a month or so later. Suggest if you pay for the issue that you save the receipt so when/if there is an official recall, you may be able to by reimbursed for the repair through the recall. Some have opted to bypass the security system with some success.

2003 ion starting after running


Google Saturn Ignition Lock and you'll see that this is a major problem with these cars. I bought a 2003 Ion in May 2008 and have had it in the shop 3 times for starting problems. I just had the entire ignition lock system replaced last month and so far it's been okay. Saturn will acknowledge that this is a problem, but there is no recall or true fix for it.
