2004-2005 Saturn Ion & Vue MP3 Radio in 2000-2002 Saturn S-Series
This video demonstrates a Saturn MP3-capable factory/OEM radio from a 2004-2005 Saturn Ion & Vue installed into a 2000-2002 Saturn S-Series.
This radio requires modifying the factory radio plug. but otherwise fits/operates perfectly in the following Saturns: 2000-2002 S-Series, 2000-2005 L-Series, 2002-2003 Vue, and 2003 Ion.
It is also a plug and play swap for 2004-2005 Saturn Ion and Vue that don't already have it since it was optional from Saturn for those years & models.
Saturn Idle problem.mov
In this video we show you how to replace an idle air control solenoid and clean the throttle body on a 1996 Saturn. This car was having a excessively high idle. It would stay at 1500 RPM even though your foot was not on the gas pedal. This was caused by carbon build up around and behind the throttle body as well as a defective idle air control solenoid.

Instrument Cluster Light and Domelight Replacement/ LED Conversion on 98 Saturn SL2
This video was a fun one to do. You can use this as a video on replacing the standard bulb that goes into the socket, or you can replace them with LED's! Recently ran across a few threads on a popular forum for Saturns about putting in LED's. Thought this was a good idea. I got my bulbs from superbrightleds.com. Below are the part numbers:
74-CWHP3 Mini Wedge Base - for the instrument cluster
RL4410-CWHP9 Rigid Loop Festoon - Domelight
I kind of skipped over the removal because there was another video already made. Props to Richpin06a for a great instructional that helped me. link for his video is below:
I am piggybacking off his video to show the light replacement on the cluster itself.
This might be long, but I hope you enjoy it.
Thanks for Watching!

This video chronicles the process of replacing a Line Pressure Control Solenoid (inside the valve body) on a 1999 Saturn SL1 A/t w/80k Miles.
