Saturn Ion Emergency Brakes Replacement – The emergency brakes were originally used to stop a vehicle when the regular brakes failed. However, the brakes on a Saturn Ion now rarely fail, and the emergency brakes are more often used to keep the vehicle from moving while parked. The most common source of failure for emergency brakes occurs when they aren’t used for a period of time, causing the brake cable to rust and seize.
