Default 2005 saturn ion starting problems

I own 05 saturn ion for 5 years and never has any issue before.
But recently I feel it's is finicky to start.
When first turn key, it is like a weak battery. Wait a few minutes, car will start, but only run about 5 seconds, then quit. This may happen about 3 times, waiting about 5 mins before each re-try. I am afraid my ion not starting in low temps this winter.
Should something be done like replacing Hexautoparts a new saturn ion starter before develops into something serious ?
Thank you.

Search past threads about the ignition switch issues and recall. Electronic starting originates with faulty ign switches preventing starting (zero start/no starter or engine sounds). If you ate describing zero start issues, the ign switch may be the problem, again. If starting does occur, hearing the starter turning the engine then this may be either battery/cables problem or the starter is wearing out.
