Default PWR STR, TRAC OFF, Computer Reset!


I have an 06 Ion 3 quad coupe that I purchased new. It has about 40,000 miles on it and earlier this year the PWR STR message would briefly come on and then turn off. It was not very frequent and I took it in to the dealer where they did a diagnostic and found nothing (I later found out that this was b/c the PWR STR message was not on at the time they did the diagnostic :/). Later in the year I went back to the dealer to purchase my car once the lease expired, I mentioned the PWR STR problem and he found that saturn had released something about the power steering being defective. It wasn't a recall, but it allowed me to get the problem fixed for free. After the repair was made, the problem persisted...only worse. Now my PWR STR comes on almost every time I drive anywhere and now it is followed by TRAC OFF. Also, sometimes the PWR STR will come on, TRAC OFF will come on, and my ABS and brake light will come on. Sometimes the computer will reset itself while I'm driving. All of the warning lights turn on, all of the gauges go down to zero and then it boots up again. This all follows the PWR STR message coming on. Even more weird is that sometimes the PWR STR message will come on and stay on, and sometimes it will flash on and off periodically. Anyone else have this problem? Winter is coming and I don't want my car to be turning off my traction control!

Call the dealer with the VIN and see if it's covered in the repair campaign.
