2005 ION-2 Quad Coupe
Default Sometimes it hates me other times it doesn't

Ive had my Saturn Ion 2 QC since april of 2006 and it been fine, except recently. This originated in the fall but then happened more later but not at a constant rate. I would turn my key and nothing would come from the engine. all my lights came on, everything was fine just nothing mechanical worked ha. the first time it happened i thought it was a dead or weak battery so i jumped it and then it worked fine. but it continued to happen so i had it looked at by one of the local gas stations. they said nothing was wrong and if happened again to call them. I don't want to get ripped off so my question is this: Have any car owners had a problem similar to this? My car will start if it is jumped but not alone so i have no idea what the problem is.

BTW my mileage is 15500 ish, the only mod i have is a flip out screen, other than the look at the gas station, ive only had the oil changed three times.

I've been looking at other posts and i didn't see the same problems so i figured i might post a new thread with my exact problem. sorry if this is a repeat i didn't find anything else about this. and if it is a repeat please reply with the link to the correct thread

Does the odomoter/status display show "Service Engine" on it and the "Car Lock" icon stays lit? If so, it'll probably be your ignition switch. It started happening to me again after it had gone away. Except for me all I have to do is take out the key, reinsert it and it turns on like nothing was wrong.

If you take it to the dealer, most likely this will be your woes. I've just been procrastinating taking it to the dealer but I've seen on here and on the RL forums that this is usually the case.

the only thing is that occasionally the car lock icon stays lit while im driving but i never really knew what that icon meant i guess i should have looked it up hah. I don't want to go to the deal cause i don't want them ripping me off by saying i need something new that is too expensive. i dont have alot of money im only in high school soo..

Actually, this should be covered by the standard warranty. I'm not sure if you bought the car used or new but the warranty is fully transferrable and you shouldn't have to pay a penny on this issue. Since the Passlock icon is lit (actually that is what it's called...heh, not Car Lock) it is a problem with the ignition switch or the BCM for sure. Take it in, they should take care of it without you having to pay anything plus you'll get a rental since this fix should take more than an hour.
