Asked by Sep 22, 2015 at 05:10 PM about the 2006 Saturn ION

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


That is probably what is referred to as a "limp home mode". Your car might be going into this mode to protect itself from a catastrophic failure. Have a shop that will just hook up their scanner for free look at that. Some shops that use the terms estimate/diagnose problems will charge for that very simple work.
