2006 Saturn Ion Won't Start

I have a 2006 Saturn Ion 3 Quad Coupe. I haven't been able to start it since Oct. 6.

It started fine all that day then I went out to start it and nothing. It doesn't make any of the typical noises when your car won't start like the clicking or sound of it trying to turn over. It's like you didn't turn the key at all. Then after you stop trying and take the key out, it makes a noise like a car alarm going off.

I haven't been able to get anyone to look at it yet so I've been using a rental for the past week. I don't think it's the battery because even a week later when I try to start it all the lights and everything comes on strong. I wanted to try to get the battery to Auto Zone just to test to make sure it's not that, but I can't get it out.

My question mainly though is does that car alarm noise mean anything? Only one before did the car not start (it was like 10 degrees out) and it did not make that noise then.

not sure but if you know that your battery is good then I am guessing Starter, Wires going to your starter, fuse or relay for the ignition or starter, or a bad ignition.

Check fuses for ignition and for the starter.

Got a 97 saturn sc2, went to start nothing, no sound when key was turned. Had no interior lights, no power windows, no power door locks, and no door chimes. Had lights on dash and radio, still nothing. Went to passenger side fuse panel, popped it off and looked on back of panel, took out the one that is a 10 amp fuse marked body and replaced the new fuse and lord and behold it cranked! Hope this will work for some of yall that are having the same problem. .89 cent 10 amp fuse, and my car started!
