Cutting White Wire on Saturn Ion to Fix Starting Issue
UPDATE 11/23/2015: My car died a year ago. Apparently you should check the oil more often than I did. Oh well. Car still started perfectly up until I donated it to charity and got a tax write off for it. I will not be posting any further updates but to answer questions that keep coming up: PUT THE AIR BAG FUSE BACK IN AFTER YOU CUT THE WIRE, WHILE THE CAR IS OFF AND !!!BEFORE!!! YOU DRIVE IT AGAIN!!!!!!! If you decide to reconnect the wire you must do so while the car is running. Yes, the lock light will come on as well as the Service Engine message. I think that is it. This was the nail in the GM coffin for me. They don't stand behind their cars. Have friends with other GMs and similar treatment from GM for things that are a design or manufacturing issues. Will never buy any GM vehicle again and actively discourage others. Happy with my Toyota. Good luck! 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

2005 Saturn Ion Ignition Cylinder Removal
The key didn't want to turn back into the off position. The oem lock cylinder kinda sounds like a problematic part.





The GM Ignition Switch: What went wrong
Beasley Allen lawyer Mike Andrews demonstrates what went wrong. The GM recall now encompasses more than 29 million cars. While these recalls encompass many makes and year models, and address a variety of problems, the largest and most serious group involve a defective GM ignition switch. The ignition can slip from the "run" to the "accessory" or "off" position, cutting power and causing drivers to lose control of the vehicle. How does this happen? In this video, Beasley Allen lawyer Mike Andrews demonstrates how the ignition switch functions, and what went wrong with the GM ignition switch. General Motors (GM) began recalling small cars including the Chevy Cobalt in February 2014 for a defective ignition switch, but evidence shows the automaker knew about the problem for more than a decade. The first GM switch recall eventually included 2.6 million cars. In June, GM announced another recall for 3.4 million midsize and large cars for the GM ignition switch defect. June 30, GM recalled an additional 8.2 million cars worldwide, with the majority affected by an ignition switch defect.
