Saturn Ion QuestionsRefine by vehicle
Car runs well but on occasion it will not start. When this happens, the headlights and signal lights don't work - no dash lights except the one saying "service engine". All else works but it has NO power to start the engine - not even a click. The radio and heater fan work - the trunk light comes on when you open the trunk lid. After a 20 min. wait it starts and everything works. H E L P

How do I get to the dash lights (speedometer) to change a burnt out bulb
Since Saturn has gone out of business, I went to an authorized GM Dealer for service who charged $350 plus tax for:
anti-freeze (coolant) replacement, brake flush and air filter. It that a rip-off or reasonable.
The Reduced Engine Light displays every time the car starts, the car seems to have little power while attempting to drive and the engine violently vibrates as though the car is about to breakdown

Purchased used Saturn Ion in January of 2010. Car does not always start, but will start 15 minutes to 1 hour later. AAA checked battery - ok. Used car dealer said it was a sensor in the clutch - $500 repair, not covered by warranty. It has been one year since purchase and the "delay start" has happened about a dozen times.
The check engine light of my 2007 Saturn Ion 3 illuminates constantly. I took it to a repair shop and the owner told me that the 3rd cylinder is misfiring. However, no one could figure out the cause of the problem I took my car to a friend's house, and he used a code reader to extract the trouble code from the computer. I don't know what the code was, but he confirmed a misfire in the 3rd cylinder. The car seems to run fine, but the check engine light stays on. What could the problem be?
I drove my 2007 Saturn Ion on sunday with no problems than we had a blizzard here in the Boston area I shoveled out my car from the snow yesterday and did not use it until this morning on the highway and to my surprise my car stared to vibrate/shake at 50-55mph. What happened or could of happened? I wont be able to get it to a mechanic until this friday...Help!!
EVERYTIME I SHIFT OR GIVE IT MORE GAS TO GO UP HILLS OR TO GO FASTER
Is this really a necessary service?
I own a 2007 Saturn ION 3. Within the last few months I have noticed the my check engine light would come on. Sometimes it would stay on and then go out, and other times it would come on and stay lit steadily for several days. The light happened to be on when my Onstar diagnostic service indicated a problem with the 3rd cylinder misfiring. The following month, the light happened to be out when Onstar performed an engine diagnosis with no problems. The light came on again and stayed lit constantly for several days, so a finally took my car to a shop for remedy the problem. The shop owner confirmed that the 3rd cylinder is misfiring, but nobody at the shop could figure out what was causing it. Ever since my car was returned to me, the light would sometimes go out, come on, and than go out again. At present the check engine light is on steadily, and hasn't gone out. Could anyone out there in the repair community tell me what could cause the 3rd cylinder in my 2007 Saturn ION 3 to misfire and what I need to do to fix it?

engine light is on also reduced power light is on also
The engine light is on and my inspection period is past due. Took car to local GMC repair. Was told that I needed to replace the "secondary air blower?" (Is this auto speak for a "fan"?) $400 later the light is still on. (It turned off when the battery was disconnected, was back on at the second try when I went to pick the car up.) Is this hunt and peck solution common? I thought computers and codes were an alternative to all of this. The car has gone 40,000 miles and runs perfectly with standard gas mileage. Ideas?
turn key dash comes on but engine won't crank
The noise sounds a bit like a moped and starts arround 15 mph and gets louder the faster i drive. Also as you turn it sometimes will make a metal on metal grinding noise. Its hard to repeat this noise it seems to hapen under specific circumstances. Could this be a CV joint? Recently a shop replaced shocks struts sway bar links and one wheel bearing. The car has 70 thousand miles on it. And is nearly all highway miles. I am a little afraid to take it back to the same shop, since they keep replacing parts and not fixing problems. Id appreciate any info anyone can give me.

I just contacted a Saturn dealership in Houston, TX and I was informed that the recall for for the exterior left signal light will not cover the BCM circuit board which would cost approximately $700 to repair.
We have replaced the bulb in the left signal light numerous times - there is a recall on this problem, but were told by a mechanic that the entire module is out and will cost us over $700 to repair. He said the recall issue on this problem would not pay for the module. Is that true?
Everytime I put gas in my Ion, the gas nozzle shuts off every 3-4 seconds. I have made sure the nozzle is all the way in, that doesn't help. I have put the nozzle in only a little ways, that doesn't help. The only thing that does work is I have to adjust the pressure I put on the handle of the nozzle to make sure the flow of gas is very slow, then it won't shut off. What's up with that?
CLOG IN THE AC CONDENSATION DRAIN TUBE. CAN YOU TELL ME WHERE IT IS EXACTLY AND HOW DO I GET TO IT? DO I HAVE TO GO UNDER THE CAR? CAN I STICK SOMETHING IN IT TO CLEAR IT OUT? 2007 ION.
