Whenever you have a no start condition when attempting to start your vehicle it's important to make the distinction between "no crank, no start" and "crank, no start" situations as they are treated differently. This video covers what I do when confronted with a 'no crank, no start' situation and in this case it's a worst case scenario so be sure to watch till the end.

quick test starter motor
quick test of old spare starter motors that I need to ferry across country tomorrow to hopefully help revive a 200tdi landrover defender after a monkey made an abortion of its starter. I think the bosch doesn't sound right, I know it was originally removed faulty - the cheap chinese one should be okay as a do-4-now, anyhow it's all I've got.
DIY How to install replace the starter on a 1999 Saturn SL2
'99 Saturn SL2, The starter was just clicking at the solenoid when I turn the key. I checked the fuses and relays to see if all ok first. Also checked all the wires from the batterry to starter and ground. If clutch switch was bad the starter would have not made a sound, so I know it's good. I used a Samsung HMX-W200 1080p HD Camcorder
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 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

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: Starter Removal, Replacement/Repair (Permanent Temporary Fix 2.0)
How to remove and replace your starter. Pretty easy fix as far as automotive repair goes (normally). Most starters are located on the passenger side under the vehicle as long as the bolts arent too hard to get to, it shouldn't take you more than 20 minutes. Part cost for this video 1 starter = 50 bucks. If you can't fit under your car... Jack it up, if you don't know how to do that.. don't do this. By all means give advice and criticize, I will post the more helpful comments in the videos annotation.
