I had to have my ignition module replaced this is common complaint - the GM dealer should have a report & remedy on this one

I have a 04 manual transmision and I had all sorts of trouble starting it when it was cold out and took it into numerous shops about ten times, and they never fixed my problem. Finally I took it into my own hands. The trouble code was reading the camshaft sensor and my car does not even have one. So after further reaserch i found out it was the clutch sensor witch is a $5 dollar plastic piece that depresses when you push down the clutch. so after about $300 in repairs at numerous shops it all came down to a little tiny piece.

I had a problem seemed to be in cold weather & it would mysteriously start later. Turned out it was the anti-theft system. According to the dealer, the grease used was sub-par but there were no recalls on it.
