there are two situations that are close to what you describe.
First, is your key STUCK in the ignition? if so, there's a little panel under the steering column, open that, and feel round under there for the latch to release the key. I don't remember what the dealer SAID the issue was, but it was solved with one of many steering column replacements for a different problem.
If the key goes in and out, but won't turn the cylinder... you may have a bad cylinder, a ruined key(bent? run over by car? goobered up lands? plain worn out?) Or, your steering lock is engaged. If it's the first, that's a mechanic replacment(hopefully dealer covered). The second? get a new key. The third? Hold some tension on the steering wheel and turn the key.
Finally, if your battery is dead, or your solenoid is shot, the key won't turn/release either. Use the stuck key removal method, so you can lock your car while waiting on dealer repair.

replace the floor shifter. there is a switch on the shifter that allows the key to move. gm has had alot of problems with these shifters.

the alternator as got one way diodes in it. charge up the battery and disconnect the negative battery terminal for a few hours etc, put the lead back on , if it starts you need a new alternator, the alternator will of been discharging to earth when not running, good luck.

yes it's true they do not have a power steering pump
they have electric power steering
i'm not sure about the HHR but the G5 and the COBALT have a MESSAGE come up on the RADIO or the DIC service power steering
my guess would be you have a short that's why the fuse blew
poss. POWER STEERING MOTOR shorted internal
you should have the vehicle scanned for a fault code in the steering system
hope this helps

You may have blown more than the power steering fuse (#1, 60A). You should check all the fuses in the underhood fuse box and you will probably find at least 1 more.
Also check the inside fuse box in the passenger side of the console.
