Mine (an '04 Ion sedan) has an issue with it's anti-theft computer programming, in where it will occasionally (maybe once every three weeks) not want to start. What is happening is that the computer is thinking that someone is attempting to steal the car (even though the factory key is being used), and disables the ignition for ten minutes. What I typically do is just turn the key all the way off, and sit until the radio clicks off (exactly 10 minutes), at which point I try again and it starts right up.
It's pretty annoying, but, to my knowledge, the only fix is to get a new computer, and while it's a pain in the ***, it's not worth $600+ to remedy.

This is also a relatively common issue in '98-'02 era Chevrolet Malibus, as well as some other GM cars of that time.

My saturn ion 2005, 2.2l engine will not turn over, is it the ignition switch?


That sounds like battery--wiring-or starter. Check the battery voltage. It should be 12.6. volts with engine off. Clean the battery terminals.

I have a Saturn Ion 2006 - twice in 10 days the car won't start, the dash lights work and the radio too - but the engine doesn't even try to turn over...Saturn of Spokane has told me the car alarm needs...


Even if the battery is low or has weak connections, there is enough power for accessories but not enough to turn the motor over. A bad solenoid will also cause this

I am not a mechanic and have had no problems with my 2005 Ion-2 but at msn/autos I see that these can exhibit a starting problem because of the ignition switch which they recommend replacing. The part is around $40 & the labor is 1 hr.
