Me and a buddy racing on the way down to the track. He has intake, I have intake and cat-back...and a passenger. I shifted slow and a little early into 5th and he missed 5th once. After he got a car back he let off but we just felt like going a little faster. My passenger was on the phone so he was narrating for the person on the phone.
Saturn Ion key ignition stuck, part 1. Repair part 2 link below

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. Watch How to MANUALLY OVERIDE IGNITION
SWITCH SOLENOID and troubleshooting, in my case ,lead to the automatic
transmission SHIFTER PARK MICROSWITCH, it fails frequently. As I got
closer to the microswitch, daylight was running away , 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. ( in my case the problem was the microswitch & its lever Inside the
consol shifter assembly ). http://youtu.be/gSXk5LQDflo
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

Viper 5704 2010 Chevy Cobalt SS Turbocharged
Here is my 2010 Chevy Cobalt SS turbocharged, I have a Viper 5704v installed.
Pretty much the same layout as my previous car (no longer have) Mazda RX8.
This alarm system for this particular is a little different rather because
it's a GM vehicle or what not still works the same. I was not able to have
the installer install the window module due to the so called "clutch wire"
issue so it went into overtime and the alarm system itself was only
installed. Will make another video with the window module installed.
Overall it's a nice system to have and these hot summer days it's not a bad
idea to have remote start. If you have any questions let me know!
