I would take it to autozone to have the code read. It could be your idle control sensor, or it could even be O2 sensors. Hard to say without knowing the code.

Try pulling the engine coolant temp sensor, They often crack not sure why but the ceramic tip cracks makes the car hard to start, the car's idle may race while shifting gears, and often smokes. The sensor is on the right side of the engine when looking at it on the head. Easy to change and get too

Sounds exactly like what I was dealing with a while ago. A nuisance (especially at fuel stations & such, where if you don't get it right away you end up looking like an idiot as it just turns over & over).
For me, it was my fuel filter. The previous owner had neglected the car so much & I had no idea how long it had been. $50 at an Oil Can Henrys & it was all back to normal. Great first step.

Hold down preset buttons 2 & 3 at the same time with radio off.This will bring up the 4 digit default unlock code.With this you can call your local Saturn dealer & the can take that 4 digit # & give you another that will unlock your radio out of theft mode.Hope this helps
