2003 Saturn Ion Repair Question
2003 saturn ion that died when idles low, this morning will not start
Now this morning, the car will not start at all. She states her lights come on but the car does not start. So I'm thinking something other than battery?
doent' turn over or won't fire? check your battery for condition scan for codes and check fuel pressure. also check fuses underhoood
It will not turn over. The battery was good per my husband, the inspector said he will run free diagnostic test on it. So, I guess we go from there.
check yor chargins system as well, the battery shold be load tested to make sure it's good. it should read at least 12.4 volts with a digital volt meter.
Just to add this one is the security light on solid or flashing when it wont start?
Battery tested fine, diagnostics tested ok. told throttle body was sticking and oil was seeping through-it was cleaned and ran fine for 2 days. Last night, while slowing down when exiting the freeway, the dashboard lights came (flashing like when you start the car).once I came to a complete stop, it completely lost power. I was able to start it up and drive home without any problems. any ideas?
Will its its idling smack the under hood fuse box and inside fuse box and see if it dies or does anything strange.
Tried smacking the fuse box while idling, nothing happens. Stalling still-but only when coming to stop @ red light/stop sign and only intermittently. Starts back up without a problem. Stalling finally reproduced by husband this morning--so now he knows we're not crazy! Any other ideas?
oneother thing i can think of is take a screwdriverhand le and smack thoutside of hte maf sensor. if it quits that may be bad. otherwise i have on other ideas unelss it's fuel pressure problem.
That year ion does have a maf sensor.They added one in the later years but no that year.Also when it stalls will it crank right up or does the no power inop starter happen?
I ment to say that year ion doesnt have a maf seso.
