Many keys today have a microchip in the key itself, and if the chip has malfunctioned the car won't respond normally. Your second key working is proof the trouble is in the key not the car. I think they can be checked in some Autoparts stores.

Testimonial: "Thanks Old F.,but they cut-off some of my description of problem, Rodeo has done the same with "BOTH" keys ! Was just out in the driveway, I'm about 99% its a bad spot on the Starter Motor ! I get 'Nothing' the first 2 tries, then I get a "Solid" sound from the Starter twice, then it fires right up. It did this 3 times in a row !"

Hello I have a 2000 saturn sl2 and steering wheel is locked. I can't even move the gear shift into nuetruel. Is there anything that i can do to fix yhis problem?

Can you turn the key? Some makes and models, if the steering wheel is causing tension on the key cylinder causing it not to turn, Sometimes you can pull ******* the steering wheel, one way or the other, to release tension on key cylinder in order to turn the key. Once you turn the key, steering wheel releases, hopefully.
If you can turn the key, turn to acc, set parking brake, step on the brake, hopefully then you can shift into neutral. That should bypass shift interlock. This info may be in your owners manual?

Ignition lock cylinder

Many times a cylinder will not turn when the steering wheel lock has pressure against it from the steering wheel. Wiggle the steering wheel while trying to turn the cylinder. If this is not the issue, the cover surrounding the steering column will have to be removed to access the cylinder.

Clio inhibitor switch

Sounds likely. By not start you mean not crank right? when no go hold key in start posision & bump gear shift up to top (park) if start = inhibitor (Some are adjustable)

Try to pull the steering wheel HARD to the left and see if that releases it.
