2005 Saturn Ion 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 57,000 miles
The car will not start (will not turn over - not a sound) when the outside temperature hits near or below freezing. Battery is strong. However, after the morning sun warms the car a few degrees, it starts like normal. I've been using a small electrical unit heater to heat the interior of the car (placing it just under the dash) in the morning. I run the heater for about 20 minutes and the car starts right up. Apparently, there is something in the ignition system that isn't making contact when the temperature drops to a certain point.
