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.
Cutting White Wire on Saturn Ion to Fix Starting Issue
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

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
2000 Saturn LS1, Starting Defect
The anti theft system in the 2000 Saturn LS1, thinks you're trying to steal
the car sometimes. You have to wait ten minutes before the 'Security'
light stops flashing. Once the security light is not flashing you can
start the car. Trying to start the car with the security light flashing
will either burn out your starter or deplete your battery!
How to change the oil in a saturn.
* * * PLEASE READ * * *
In this video I show how to drain and refill the engine oil as well as
replace the engine oil filter.
The car in the video is a 2007 ion with a 2.2L inline 4-cylinder engine.
The engine holds 5 quarts of oil.
The owners manual recommends a torque of no more than 18ft.-lbs to hold the
filter in place.
The owners manual also says to reset the oil life meter after an oil change
by first turning the key to the on position. Then, press the button on the
trip meter until it reads 'oil life'. Hold the button until it beeps 5
times. That should reset it.
I am not responsible for anything.
