I think there was a recall on the ignition switches for a different reason, so you may have a new one already. I've done that before Almost everything on these care runs through the computers, It's possible it's something weird wrong with one of them. My car was parked at my apartment and left there during winter break the lights were off when I left , but when I got back a little less than a month later, the battery in my car was 100% dead, so I'm assuming the lights came on again at some point during my break. By making a good attempt to narrow down where and what may be causing the problem you save those trying to help many steps in diagnosing the problem. It still will not start with the key. After the roads cleared the car would no longer start with a key but would have complete power to everything. Turn the ignition switch to Lock.
I feel like I had to have allot of services done on the lighting system. There is power new battery and no fuel issue clean fuel system and filter , but after 10 to 15 minutes and a couple of hesitant engine turns, it starts. This has been an intermittent problem and the cause of the light failure is unknown. You may need to get some pliers on it but it will turn. The approximate failure mileage was 99,000 and the current mileage was 111,000. One more thing to check is the fuse box, there are three 8mm bolts that you can try tighening, they hold the layers of the fuse box together and they some times back off. Then look on the right side of the intake manifold just on the edge of it you will see a 32mm Nut.
I tried googling for Saturn dash light symbols but to no avail. It's been a long time since I worked on one of these, so this may or may not be helpful. Car started giving me trouble again. They can be aggravating, especially if you can't get it to do it on command they always works fine for the mechanic don't they? I have an 04 ion 5 speed. I left it for about 10 mins came back and it started right up. Probably better to look up how to diagnose a misfire than get into it here.
Also check the smaller red wire coming from the battery and it's in-line fuse for corrosion. If it cranks, but won't start look for blown fuses in the fuse box and there's one inline in the trunk near the battery that will cause this. This process is desc … ribed in the owners manual. This will take approximately 10 minutes. You almost have to look upside down to see it. Car blew fuse while driving on highway.
I'm very reluctant to blame the computers, as I've been burned on that diagnosis before, but I'm stumped. You have to take the top motor cover off doing so, Just remove the oil cap and pull up on the plastic cover. You may have checked this, but have you tried jumping the starter relay? I am out there again today replacing this thing. Turn key to accessory or on position. But maybe you can find out.
Could these 3 issues be related? This would happen in cold and rainy weather. The body control is part of the inside fuse box on that car. But this morning the vehicle would not crank, would not start. The ignition switch is in line with the key same angle on the other side of the steering column. Do you know why this would happen.
I looked in the trunk to see if mine had an inline fuse and ive just got one lead off each side of the battery. Posted on Jan 24, 2011. But in the last couple of days I've been getting a light artists representation below that shows randomly, but never stays on the entire drive. When jumping the car the key would still be locked in the on position and begin turning on and off violently and rapidly until key was able to be removed. And what do u think the no start is? I'm guessing it means some sort of fluid is low but I can't tell.
If it does you can eliminate that wiring. This has been an ongoing expense that appears to be never ending. Press and hold it for 30 sec. On 3-7-04 the vehicle was involved in an accident. This is a remote negative.
