Saturn Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.There was also a recall for replacing the ignition lock as well as the ignition switch on your Ion and if you have not had the ignition lock replaced then I would consider having that done as well. Because its a recall its free of charge. I have enclosed the recall bulletin in the link below as well.

There where two recalls, one for the switch (key and tumbler) and one for the ignition switch. If the shifter is working okay then I would suspect the new ignition lock may be defective.
My hour vary so I can not say for sure. I can however open the post back up for you and see if perhaps someone else may have something different to offer.
