Default 2005 Saturn Ion 2 problem

I have a 2005 saturn ion 2 with just under 80,000 miles.
I believe it is doing that no start / no crank problem or something similar. The car is a manual and in the colder mornings when I go to start the car it will not start, sometimes it will crank. The anti theft alarm & the check engine alarm will go on the car. The accessories in the car, radio, heater, and lights all seem to work. I go outside ten minutes later and she fires up like nothing happened.
I took it to a shop and they have tried the last few days to get the problem to duplicate and are not successful.
They said that i have a passlock sensor that is out or going out?.. They said it would be 200 dollars to fix it. I was just wondering if you guys knew how hard it would be for myself to fix it. I was thinking of just ordering a new ignition switch. I also live in WI and well its going to get colder here pretty soon.
Its just weird because the car will crank but not start.. which could be the signs of a bad starter?... but would that cause the anti theft alarm to light up in the car?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

The ignition switch issue causes it not to even crank, sounds like you need to check your ground wires and positive wires.

I have checked them but I can do it again. If it were to be some wiring issue would that cause the anti theft alarm to appear? The light with the car and the lock in the dashboard?.

I don't think so, but at the same time, the security system is designed to not even let it crank. You may have a combination of issues.

Ok. if I recall correctly 80% of the time it cranks but won't start. About ten minutes later it starts...hmm well hhopefully the mechanics can get the symptoms to occur.
