Apparently OnStar's tech service turnaround is 7 to 10 days, which I find ludicrous for a new vehicle, but it's OnStar's policy, not Saturn's. He put it on the fastest rush order he could. So sometime next week the vehicle will go back for a day to get the new OnStar module installed.

I have to give kudos to the dealership though; they gave me an Astra for a courtesy vehicle, and it was an awesome little car. I've asked if I can have it again next week and they said it was no problem at all.

On the Ion, the OnStar computer was mounted on metal of the rear (parcel) I assume it might be there too on the Aura.

You gotta take the C-pillar panels off & the side trim to get to to the shelf cover & then remove that to get access to's kind of a pain
