2004 Saturn ION Starting Problems

This problem occurs once in awhile and is more common in cold weather, where the car does not want to start or even try to turn over at all. If you wait about 20 minuets without trying to start the engine and try again later it sometimes works, what could be the cause of this problem?

The key refuse to return to OFF position and to come out of ignition slot . Ignition only accept ACC ON START. Watch How to MANUALLY OVERIDE IGNITION SWITCH SOLENOID and troubleshooting, in my case ,lead to the automatic transmission SHIFTER PARK MICROSWITCH, it fails frequently. As I got closer to the microswitch, daylight was running away , my cam focus was acting out the shifter is totally black making it hard to shoot I had to speed up and get it done. WATCH CLOSELY HOW I SLIGHTLY BEND THE MICROSWITCH LEVER TO GIVE IT MORE STRENGHT, i used a needle nose plier . The microswitch is held in place by a removable plastic clip ( it's got a green line painted onto it as you can see on the still image just prior to click on the play icon ) I removed with a small flat tip screwdriver pushing from the Inside out , no need to unclip top shifter panel. So after all this, I went for a test ride, the problem disappeared, yes! it works, so far so good. ( in my case the problem was the microswitch & its lever Inside the consol shifter assembly ). http://youtu.be/gSXk5LQDflo

Cutting White Wire on Saturn Ion to Fix Starting Issue
UPDATE 3/21/2014: My car is still working fine. I still have not had a problem with it starting since I posted this video 5 years ago. Still on the same battery. Thanks for all the comments! This is me showing how I cut the passlock wire on my car. My car would not start on damp, cold mornings, often taking 30 - 40 minutes to get it to start. After reading several forums I found users who were doing this to "fix" the problem. I thought I would tape this for anyone who was thinking of doing the same but doesn't know anything about cars. Like me. :) Note: I owe thanks to meron for the post at this link http://townhall-talk.edmunds.com/direct/view/.f1137a7/83 it is where I first heard about this solution. Update 10.6.2012: I added a switch, I believe it was this one http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2062533 I installed it with it in the off position, started the car, switched it to On while the car was running and the service engine light went away. Car started fine after that. I just shut it off again as it was cold one morning this week and I had trouble getting the car started. Once I got it running, turned it off and haven't had trouble starting it since. YMMV





How to diagnose & replace a bad starter motor
This video shows a step by step process that I used to diagnose and replace an intermittently failing starter motor on my 1998 Dodge Ram. Battery load testing and voltage drop testing are demonstrated, to help rule out other causes that might appear to be due to a bad starter motor. Both battery load testing and voltage drop testing are dynamic tests, putting the battery and wiring under active load to expose very common hidden problems. For an inside look at my old starter motor, see this followup video of a partial starter motor autopsy, here http://youtu.be/r4sTBK6J5kI This video is posted for entertainment purposes and is not an instructional guide. Do not attempt this at home without professional advice. I am not a professional mechanic, and any misadventure resulting from your attempt to repair your vehicle is your responsibility.





2003 Saturn Ion that won't start in cold weather
Documenting my attempt to use a fix I found on the internet to resolve an issue that plagues 2003-2004 Saturn Ions. The models in this year can have difficulty starting in cold weather. At first it was pretty sporadic for me but this year it was almost constant. In the video I replace the ignition switch which actually ended up resolving my problem. I guess there is a lubricant in this switch that SHOULDN'T harden in cold weather but the ones that shipped in the cars of these years do. Total cost $29.99 and about 30 minutes of time. The specific symptoms you will see with this issue are (usually in cold weather) you will try to start the car and it might crank a couple times but then die. When you try to start it again you will hear a short fire but then it stops. This is because the security system has kicked in and shut off fuel to the vehicle for 10 minutes. After you wait 10 minutes you can try to start it again. This cycle can happen multiple times (at its worst I would have to go almost an hour of doing this). Once you replace the part you may have to reset the security (passlock). This is done by turning the key to start (but it won't) and then leaving it in the run position until the lock light in the dash quits blinking (about 10 minutes). You then do this again (again waiting 10 minutes) and finally a THIRD time (waiting another 10 minutes). After the third attempt you turn the key to OFF and wait 30 seconds (this waiting is important I am told!). It should then fire up. Be sure to watch this on the Web if you can as I have a lot of in-video comments to help!
