I'm it is possible that you may have gotten a faulty starter just saying it does happen a little more information would be helpful also like do your lights all turn off you have a check engine light on? Like I tell everybody else if you have a check engine light on you can buy your own code scanner and can I get to the OBD connector or you can have your car scanned at AutoZone for free and they'll give you a printout of whatever code you throwing

Two things come to mind - one is the possibility of a bad battery lead crimp that can transmit current just long enough to turn the engine once - check at the starter with a testlamp or analogue voltmeter.
The other is an immobiliser that can't quite make up it's mind whether it is armed or disarmed. Check the supply to the solenoid when attempting to crank, if it disappears it could be immobiliser, ignition/starter switch, relay, wiring*...

If battery current is present at the starter, manually energising the solenoid will test the starter and supply. If it cranks the fault is*...

SOURCE: Oxygen sensor location on a 2003 Saturn Ion-1

One is front of the cat, and one after the cat of the exhaust.
The OBD Scanner should tell you which bank is producing the error.
Bank one is the front one.

SOURCE: i have 2003 cad cts mt new battery,new starter

does the vehicle have an anti theft device on it if so it may need to be reset. usually all you have to do is unlpug the negative batt cable. for about 5 mins.and reconnect it. if this does not solve the problem look i the owners manual to see how to override the system.

The ECM kicks up the engine rpm's a bit when the A/C is on. This is normal. In the winter, the A/C kicks on and off only if you have the dial set on defrost. this clears the inside windshield of condensation. Again this is normal.

2003 saturn ion wont turn over at all dont even get the usall starter clicking just one click every once in awhile


How to voltage drop test starter motor circuit Looking at a wiring diagram an testing the starter circuit with a DMM - digital multi-meter is the way to find the problem . Free wiring diagram's here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter vehicle info. year , make , model an engine size. Under system click on engine then under subsystem click on starting . Click the search button then the blue link .
Looking at the diagram you will see this starting circuit is computer controlled . Ignition switch is a low voltage input to the BCM - body control module. A message to the ECM - engine computer from the BCM requesting a start over the serial data network (class2) will energize the relay sending B+ voltage to the S terminal on the starter solenoid . Your best bet mite be to have it towed to a qualified repair shop.

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.

My 2003 saturn ion will not turn over only the check engine light comes on


Battery is so weak so it doesn't have enough juice to crank it. You cn't not even horn it.
If the battery is over 5 years, replace it. It it is leass than 5years, recharge it. Good luck.

My 2005 Saturn ION will not start once in a while. It's random. Checked for loose wires, etc... everything is good??? If i wait about ten minutes and then try it, it will start up.


My 2005 did the same thing. It was the ignition switch. Happened mostly when it was a cold morning. Seems to be a common problem.

Unable to start but lights came on battery is said to not be the problem then tried module but states a new battery was put in because it wont hold the charge still do not know what the problems is


sounds like a bad starter, test for power with a testlight,have someone crank the engine while you check for power at starter , the small wire should have power when key is in start position. if theres power then replace starter, hope this helps good luck.
