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.

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!

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

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
Saturn No Start Case Study (featuring Beau Danner)
Join me and my son Beau on a field trip to Latorres Auto.
He is 8 years old, loves fixing things and has been begging to come with me
on one of my jobs. Of course he wanted to be on camera too.
This is the third car we worked on together. Cars one and two will be a
combined video and I will upload that as soon as I finish some follow up
video on the repair.

2007 Saturn ION Starting Problems
Since we drove the car off the lot it would periodically not start on
demand only to start some time later (usually 15 minutes or so). Because
this problem cannot be replicated on demand we have filmed an instance when
the car would not start.
