When first getting your body kit you'll want to give it a good look over.

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

This 1 has a 2.2L 4 Cyl making 140 HP while paired to a CVT.
This is a Coupe but it has 2 small doors that open for rear set passenger.
Typical Low Rent Saturn Interior of 2004. Very Creaky & Squeaky plastics
everywhere. It is not a small car & can accommodate 4 passengers Rater
well, but execution of the car was done poorly.

Ion Redline Racing Compilation
This is a compilation of some of the races I had this year in my car with
some of my friends. First video I have ever edited, but I think I did
decent for just using movie maker.
Saturn Ion key ignition stuck, part 1. Repair part 2 link below
Please Deactivate Adblock, because it removes on screen instructions to
this part 1. A more important part 2 was added ( How to fix it
permanently) just click on the following link http://youtu.be/gSXk5LQDflo
The problem was on a 2005 saturn ion with automatic transmission. The key
refuse to return to OFF position and to come out of ignition slot .
Ignition only accept ACC ON START. ( this switch will also causes the doors
to lock inadvertenly if you climb out of the car and leave it running on
its own). On this video, watch How to MANUALLY OVERIDE IGNITION SWITCH
SOLENOID and troubleshooting, in my case , it lead to the automatic
transmission SHIFTER PARK MICROSWITCH, it failed frequently. As I got
closer to the microswitch, loosing daylight , 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 but a
permanent fix is required , it is best to replace it. So, watch part 2 you
will see better how to fix it. http://youtu.be/gSXk5LQDflo
