My car's having starter problems. Twice in the past week I had to call AAA to get the car started, and they did it by knocking on the starter with bars. The first responder, a private contractor, refused to show me where the starter was, but the second guy was employed directly by AAA and showed me what to poke if I had to. It seems it only happens when I try to start after a very short trip from home, and the starter doesn't have enough charge, especially in cold weather. The Saturn service center can't see me until Tuesday because they have to see other Saturns with ignition and starter problems in the recent cold weather. In the meantime, if I have to poke the starter, it will be with a toy lightsaber.
