2002 Saturn sl2 and it has taken everything the only car I lost to is a BMW
Saturn Ion key ignition stuck wont come out (solved) manual overide & troubleshoot
Problem was, 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 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. ( the problem was cause by the microswitch lever located Inside the
shifter assembly ).

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.
