How to Replace the Fuses in a Saturn Ion

by Contributor

The Saturn Ion had a short run from 2003 until 2007. However at any time you can experience a blown fuse. When this happens, replace it with a new fuse in under 30 minutes, for little to no cost involved.

Step 1

Turn the ignition off in your car before working with fuses. Locate one fuse box in the engine compartment near the battery.

Step 2

Find the other fuse box in a slightly hidden spot. Push back the driver's seat all the way and look on the driver's side near the floor. You'll see a pull down compartment that you'll open to access the fuses.

Step 3

Check the list on the inside of the fuse box cover to find the location of the fuse. For example, in the engine compartment fuse box of a Saturn ion, the dash board fuse is in either slot 39 or 47.

Step 4

Remove the fuse using your thumb and index finger. Check the middle wire to verify it's blown, represented by a melted wire.

Step 5

Replace the fuse with a new one of the same amperage rating. For example the dashboard light fuse mentioned earlier uses a 15 amp mini fuse.

Click the new fuse into place and close the fuse box. Restart your Ion and test out the new fuse.
