Re: What is UP with the gas cap on this car? (2006 Ion)

No.



Pull the ECM fuse in the underhood fuse block or use a scan tool as previously suggested.

Your description of how your cap is tightening, clicking, then tightening again makes me think...

Re: Odd Leak

That's hydraulic fluid that has leaked out of the engine mount. You should replace the engine mount and be sure to get the correct one. A manual transmission car uses a different engine mount than...

Re: SC1 To Ion compatible parts?

Third gen S-Series are 2000-2002. That isn't debatable. First-hand experience confirms they are compatible. The only exception would be using the single DIN CD player in a 2003 Ion w/AAS.

Re: SC1 To Ion compatible parts?

Radios from third gen S-Series are compatible with 2003 Ions with no modifications. They will also physically fit into 2004-2005 Ions with no modifcation necessary, but wiring is different.

Re: cruise control not working

It sounds like the stealership sold you the switch for the newer style (2005-2007) steering wheel. There are multiple part numbers assigned to this part because of the different colors of the...

Re: 2005 ION Sedan - AT Fluid Type/Name

Dexron VI is compatible with the 4T45E transmission used in your 2005 Ion.



GM recommends using their T-IV fluid (GM p/n 88900925) in the Aisin AF23 transmission used in the 2003-2004 Ion...

Re: Aftermarket Stereo Wiring Harness

No other GM harnesses are compatible with Saturns. The same harness is used for 2000-2002 S-Series, 2000-2005 L-Series, 2002-2003 Vue, and 2003 Ion with some minor wire location differences between...

Re: 2004 Saturn Ion 3 blowing ignition fuse

That fuse provides power to the ignition module and the park/neutral safety switch if the car has an automatic transmission (or CVT).

I would unplug the ignition module and see if it happens...

Re: Q: Ion 2 RKE

Technically, the FCC ID does need to match. However, all Ions use the same part number for the RKE fob. This effectively guarantees the FCC ID will also match.

Re: Possible 3.6L to 3.5L?

What you just said is only true for the 2005-2007 Vue and not applicable to the OP's inquiry.

The OP had a 2008 Vue which is substantially different from older models. The 2008 Vue XE came with a...

Re: Key turns but won't unlock either door

If this is the case, the linkage in the doors has become disconnected from the lock cylinders. Broken door lock pawl clips are a common cause of this in Ions. The passenger side (22689916, Strattec...

Re: Key turns but won't unlock either door

These cars aren't that fancy. :D

Either the key isn't matched to the door locks or you have broken clips in both doors.

If all else fails, you can open the trunk, fold the rear seats down, and...

Re: 2006 ion3 rke

All Saturn models (starting with the 1996 model year) have RKE if they are equipped with power locks.

The part number is 10357131 for a replacement fob for an Ion (all years use same part number).

Re: Will a 2005 2.2 swap to a 2004 2.2?

The answer is a solid no. They are completely different transaxles.

Re: emergency engine swap

It will bolt in, but it is not compatible as-is because the 2007 Ion 2.2L uses some different engine management components.

You would need to install the crankshaft, cylinder head, and...

Re: 2002 redline Vue starts but stalls if gas given

Need more info. It's either getting too much air or not enough fuel. A shot in the dark guess would be weak fuel pump, clogged fuel filter, or bad MAF sensor.

Is your check engine light on? If so...

Re: P0420 - Ion High in the Sky?

Re: Car will not start after seats removed, help?

Chances are that you had one or more doors open for a long time when working on the car. I'm betting you just have a simple low/bad battery. The BCM is supposed to turn off the dome light after 10...

Re: pulsating dash lights and radio

Too late to edit previous post....

You could have a bad dimmer switch or a bad connection at the dimmer switch. You can pull the pocket straight out to access the back of the dimmer switch.
