Saturn ION not starting stuck at shopping plaza parking lot
I drove down the the butler greater mart plaza to find something at a local
hardware store and when I tried to go home the car decided not to start.
This is what happens with this thing. I have a video from before showing
what this thing does but this time I'm not at home and Im stuck in a
parking lot. This car is so inconvenient :(
2004 Saturn Ion Redline vs 2006 Chevy Cobalt SS
My brothers 2006 cobalt SS vs my 2004 ion redline. The redline has intake
and just an aftermarket muffler & a bad clutch, other then that it's all
stock, the redline also has a full tank of gas, and the cobalts is almost
empty! The cobalt has intake, new clutch, no cats, and 3 inch straight
pipe! Both cars only have drivers. 50 mph in 3rd gear on both cars! The
only reason we did that Is cause the ion redline has a bad clutch, and if
we were in 1st or 2nd gear the ion will loose instantly, so 3rd gear was
the way to go! Both cars had stock Supercharger pulleys. Both running at 91 octane.

This 1 has a 2.2L 4 Cyl making 140 HP while paired to a CVT.
This is a Coupe but it has 2 small doors that open for rear set passenger.
Typical Low Rent Saturn Interior of 2004. Very Creaky & Squeaky plastics
everywhere. It is not a small car & can accommodate 4 passengers Rater
well, but execution of the car was done poorly.

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!
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

Not very often you find a total sleeper truck of this magnitude. This
regular cab Z71 has a Forged 402 stroker motor with an 80mm turbo. He runs Drag Radials all the way around
and this thing launches like a rocket. Its pretty crazy to watch a truck
spin 4 drag radials going down the track.
Also he drove the truck to the track which is about 35 miles from his house
and then drove it back home.
This was filmed at Holiday Beach Raceway on Test N Tune night.
