2007 4 door Saturn Ion dead battery but got new one, and car stuill wont turn on.  Shop tested, and says starter is fine.  Is it the ignition switch causing this problem.  The one with the recall I keep hearing about?  Could the ignition create an electrical problem preventing the battery from turning on the car?  Car was running perfectly well until it died last night.

Do you have anti theft in it?

I don't any anti theft device? Is it automatic? I believe I read it had on some pamphlet, but I really don't know what it is.

Not a Saturn guy but try following the positive lead from the battery to the starter. See if there is a fusible link. The recall you were talking about was for the ignition, but it was the key turning freely backwards shutting the electrical off while driving. What you can do is run power directly to the starter and see if it turns the engine over. If it does, the problem is somewhere between the ignition and the starter. Have you checked your main fuses under the hood yet?

Did you get the right battery for your car with the appropriate cold cranking amps. Check your terminals for good connection.

Hi, thanks for the replies. I found this to be a exclusive Saturn issue. The recall on the faulty ignition switch preventing electrical current from allowing the engine to turn on. had tire kingdom run diagnostics on the car and told me the starter turns on. They can see no reason yet other than electrical why it won't turn on. Had car towed to the authorized Saturn Dealer this morning to get the recall issues done. Hopefully this will resolve.

I did get a correct battery for the car. New one year make and model were all checked to assure.. Also got it tested by 2 shops and battery is all good. Thanks!

it might just be a fuse that burned out
