Welcome to SaturnFans, jbaut294!

It's helpful to have some background about how your vehicle was running prior to this "no start" condition. What's the mileage and maintenance history? For example, have any parts ever replaced in the ignition system or within the fuel delivery system; i.e., fuel filter, fuel pressure regulator, ignition control module, coil pack...? Is the SES/malfunction indicator lamp illuminated at the dash console? Have fuses been checked? Look in your owner's handbook to determine the location of fuses related to fuel injection and the ignition system and check each of them.

Accepting that your battery is in good condition, how is it that the AAA service man could say that the alternator and starter are good? (He could be right, but I want to know how he arrived at that conclusion.) The two main ingredients to starting an engine are spark and fuel. If either of those is missing the engine will not run.

...
287,000 miles-it keeps on rolling!

Gov't's grown bigger, but a chance exists that it will be reduced. I'm cautiously hopeful.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

2007 ION-2 Quad Coupe
Default Re: ion wont start

Does your car have an automatic or manual transmission?

What exactly happens when you attempt to start the engine? Does the starter engage and turn the engine over or do you just hear a couple clicks?
