2007 Saturn ION Starting Problems
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.

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
Saturn S-Series Strut Replacement
Here I show how to remove and replace a strut and spring assembly on my
2002 Saturn SL2. Recently broke a spring which prompted me to replace not
only the spring but a worn out strut. I also went ahead and replaced the
rear strut assemblies as well since I was unsure when the last time they
were replaced(if at all).
After replacing these parts be sure to bring it to a shop to have an
I hope this helps.

inspection. It should be good to go for awhile!
2003 Saturn Ion that won't start in cold weather
Documenting my attempt to use a fix I found on the internet to resolve an
issue that plagues 2003-2004 Saturn Ions. The models in this year can have
difficulty starting in cold weather. At first it was pretty sporadic for
me but this year it was almost constant.
In the video I replace the ignition switch which actually ended up
resolving my problem. I guess there is a lubricant in this switch that
SHOULDN'T harden in cold weather but the ones that shipped in the cars of
these years do. Total cost $29.99 and about 30 minutes of time.
The specific symptoms you will see with this issue are (usually in cold
weather) you will try to start the car and it might crank a couple times
but then die. When you try to start it again you will hear a short fire
but then it stops. This is because the security system has kicked in and
shut off fuel to the vehicle for 10 minutes. After you wait 10 minutes you
can try to start it again. This cycle can happen multiple times (at its
worst I would have to go almost an hour of doing this).
Once you replace the part you may have to reset the security (passlock).
This is done by turning the key to start (but it won't) and then leaving it
in the run position until the lock light in the dash quits blinking (about
10 minutes). You then do this again (again waiting 10 minutes) and finally
a THIRD time (waiting another 10 minutes). After the third attempt you
turn the key to OFF and wait 30 seconds (this waiting is important I am
told!). It should then fire up.
Be sure to watch this on the Web if you can as I have a lot of in-video
comments to help!
