Your Ignition Switch itself is probably broken or the ignition Cable snapped

That can lead to a bad situation, possibly a very bad scenario of ruined electronic parts of the car, like your engine's computer and any other computers on the car, if you have to disconnect the battery with the key on. I would pull a few fuses first, try to cut all power to computers and other electronic parts first. Pulling a fuse to cut power may be less harmful than disconnecting the battery while the devices are powered, which is always discouraged-volt or amp spikes are very deadly to electronic circuits. Once you have pulled some fuses for protection, then disconnect the negative battery post, and everything is now disabled, so you can fix the switch problem. But DO NOT work around the steering column and the wiring there for at least a half hour after disconnecting the battery. The system for the air bag will hold a residual charge for several minutes after power is cut. They are designed to work that way in a crash even if the car's power is lost. After a half hour to 45 minutes, it should be totally incapacitated, where you could remove it to work on the ignition switch or key cylinder, but be very safety conscious, and follow all precautions around air bags. Can't stress that enough.

Replace radio in saturn 2005 vue. when finished the radio would not shut off with ignition, power to windows and all other electronic devices stays hot. also the lights and horn do not come on or beep when...

since the problem was seen shortly after you installed the radio; I would disconnect the power to the radio first. it usually has an inline fuse that you can just disconnect. then check to see if your symptoms went away. if so. the wiring is wrong for the radio.

How to replace an ignition switch

If you're having trouble starting your car and you've been through troubleshooting the starter and alternator, it may be time to replace the ignition switch. Though this is a job best suited for a professional mechanic, if you're willing to take it on, here's how to replace the ignition switch in your car.
1.Disconnect the negative battery cable from the terminal on the battery. Remove the upper and lower steering column covers by unscrewing or unclipping them.
2.Remove the steering wheel by lifting off the center cover, disconnecting the horn wire and removing the retaining nut and washer. Make a mark on the steering wheel spline and the wheel itself so you can line it back up precisely. Pull the steering wheel straight back to remove from the shaft.
3.Take off windshield wiper and turn signal switches by pulling them off as you did the steering wheel and disconnect the wiring. Slide the spacer sleeve off of the steering column.
4. Unscrew the ignition switch mounting screws. Pull out the ignition switch. Disconnect the wiring connector from back of the ignition switch. Simply loosen the tabs and pull it out.
5. Insert your key into the ignition. Turn the ignition switch to the locked position. Depress the retaining pin with a small screwdriver and turn the key to the Off position to free the cylinder. Once it is free, turn the key to lock position and remove the key and key cylinder.
6. Install your old key cylinder into the new ignition switch assembly. Make sure the contacts in the cylinder and assembly line up. Reattach wiring to ignition switch, slide it into place, screw in mounting screws and reassemble steering wheel and switches.

I had to replace the ingetion on my a 2000 neon due to a lost key. how do i bypass the alaram system to keep the car running

If you had an ignition with a security chip key and you replaced it with an ignition that doesn't have that function (I believe it was a gray key in 2000) then your options are 1: replace the ECM or 2: Replace the ignition yet again with the correct ignition type. That security system is built into the ECM and there is no bypass. If that is an after market alarm, not common with this restriction, remove the cut off from the ignition wires or disable the alarm but cutting the power wire.
