2004 ION-3 Sedan
Question New to Saturn & This Board... Have a question?

Hello everyone, I'm new to the Saturn world as I just bought an 04 Ion with 55000 miles. I've put about 250 miles on it and so far I have been very pleased with my decision. My biggest issue is when I got the car the dealer only gave me one key (no remote entry)... I was surprised that my car didn't have a remote... I have power everything (except seat), cruise control and a moon roof. (it is a 5 speed)... was the remote an extra (you'd like with everything else it has the remote would be there) or do you think it was just "lost" and thus not given to me? How can I find out if it's supposed to have one, and if so how do I go about getting it?

Second, I've found that my trunk release button doesn't work? Has anyone else had this and can it be fixed?

Third... the "slider" (that's what I've head it called) to my moon roof is stuck in the open position (not the window just the slider thingy that if you close it blocks the view of the moon rood)... has anyone had this issue and can it be fixed... (not big deal I like the moon roof and guess I can get use to the sun hitting me all the time...

So far these are the only little things I've found if someone can help me I'd be very thankful!

Sorry one more thing... I didn't get an owners manual with my car... does anyone know where I can find one? (can you find them online?) there are lights on my inst. panel that light up when I start the car that I'm not sure what they are (I'm not an idiot I can figure most out)... but for example the shift indicator light (yellow + sing thing) freaked me out on the test drive until I got back and asked the sales man what that was... I haven't owned a manual tranny in about 13 years so none of my other cars had that type of light....

I'd take it back to the dealership and have them run the VIN, they can tell you from there if you have the rest of the RKE system. while you're at it, have them fix the sunroof shade (you should be able to guilt them into it, it involves removing the headliner and dome light if they won't). for the trunk button, look on the trunk lid by the latch for a switch like thing, switch it the other way, then try it again. manuals are available from your local saturn dealership. congrats and welcome to the saturn family

If you have power windows and door locks then remotes came with the car. I may have a owners manual and may evan have remotes. Send me an e-mail at RjION@yahoo.com in the mean time I'll see what I have.....I'll call SATURN to get the part number for the the 2004 and see if it mates with the remotes I have.

wrong on both counts, and in broken english at that, if it has RKE, the car comes with 2 remotes from saturn. also, it could be a 2 or a 3 with the description they gave.

Hi all... thanks for the replies... I called the dealer and they said that it is supposed to have RKE... I was told I could buy replacements for 80 each and pay 35 to program them... seems a bit much to me... to the person that said they may have the item... I'll try to give you an e-mail tonight or tomorrow when I get home.

As for the moon roof thing.. I didn't buy it form the Saturn dealer here and it's way to far to go back to the dealer I bought it from... I'll just have to find someone to fix it...

You all are great! (oh and I'm a her)... also I thought it was a level 3 but according to car fax my Ion is level 2 (OK how do you know the difference?)

unfortunately, for a dealership, that's about right, if it's a three it will have velor fabric or leather, otherwise it's a two

If it's a two it will not have fog lights, 16" alloy wheels and silver faced gauges unless some dweeb added them.
