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 ( new update 23dec 2014, I just received a GM RECALL for this exact problem)

This all started with a buddy of mine wanting a video of 40-100 to compare his m62 blower on a 2.6 pulley with E85. The difference is he has a 4.45 Trans, Where I have the stock F35 Trans on 93 Pump Gas. We timed them out with a stopwatch and we both averaged around 9.1-9.4 seconds. Not a bad comparison. Props to Alan for the 4.45 Trans. :D ENJOY COMMENT RATE AND SUBSCRIBE! :D THANKS GUYS AND GALS HAVE A GREAT DAY!
