the problem is not the bcm. the passlock security sensor is in the cylinder and housing, if the cyl and or housing was replaced the system must be relearned. if you replace the bcm you still need to relearn the system or it still will not start.

If the torque converter was locked up as snafu86 said, then you would be stalling when you stopped.
The Saturn TAAT Transmission will place itself in hydraulic backup mode when there is a mechanical issue with the transmission. This hydraulic backup mode consists of placing itself in 3rd gear and staying there. This is to prevent any damage to it. It is possible you have a bad clutch pack or another internal problem.
There is no "pan" or "side pan". The Saturn transmission isn't like any other, for one there is an external filter on it unlike most if not all other transmissions. There is simply a drain plug on the bottom and the valve body is on the top under the valve body pan.
Time to get the transmission looked at. It could be internal and not the usual valve body fix scenario.

Your valve body and possibly input shaft nut need to be replaced. The valve body's booster valve is worn down and won't create pressure. Before it went completely out it slammed on the input shaft nut and loosened it.
You need to replace the valve body and retorque the input shaft nut. The transmission is not junk. The above needs to be replaced and change the filter and fluid and do it every 20K miles.

Sounds like you have a shift solenoid that is dead or you have a booster valve that is not supplying enough pressure to shift.
Your check engine light is most likely on, have it checked to see what gear it is actually "missing".
Replacing the solenoid inside the valve body would fix this or an entire swap of the valve body is necessary depending on the cause. This is relatively easy and an hour job. The valve body is right on the top of the transmission underneath the battery tray. This is my absolute expertise so ask any questions you have.
