No crank no start, salonoid clicking under steering column

Asked by Apr 25, 2015 at 12:41 PM about the 2003 Saturn ION

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have just replaced the timing chain in my ION, after reconnecting the battery after
three days, it will not crank. Furthermore, after tuning off the ignition, there is a clicking
(every 3 or 4 secs) coming from under the steering column. I have tried boosting the
car - no difference. The Ignition was replaced under GM recall in December. Tried to
get a service code and all I get is NO Link. Finally, the car will not shift out of park.
HELP any advice is welcome

Check all fuses and relays, possible body control module failure.

Fixed! After about three hours of trouble-shooting we traced the problem back to the ground! When I removed the ground to take of the cam cover the main ground wire slipped under the cluster of wires out of sight and I missed it when I reconnected the ground. great exercise in electrical trouble-shooting; I am ecstatic about the outcome! Thanks for the input.
