2006 saturn ion sometimes just won't start. Turn the key and nothing. No crank or attempting to crank. No clocking. Nothing. Wait 10-20 minutes then it starts like there was never a problem. What's up?

Does the security light flash while it won't start. I can't be 100 percent sure but I recently fixed one that had a faulty ignition switch. Take it somewhere to have it scanned for codes. That should pinpoint the problem.

Bad ignition switch is really common for those cars causing the no start's then start's to happen. Take it some where that can read your body control module code's. If you have a code B02960 and or B3033 then replace the ignition switch and you should be good to go.
