I saw a similar post with similar problem with another Saturn. The dealer told him it was a bad battery. My guess here is it is a bad Ignition. However, just to appease the dealer side, disconnect the negative cable from the battery and connect the jumper cable to the negative cable and positive cable. If it was the battery causing the problem the key should come right out. My guess is you need to replace the ignition as one or more of the tumblers is not releasing as it should.

Go to turn the key in ignition, it wouldn't turn at all. finalt


try turning the steering wheel side to side whilst turning the key. If that dies not help, you may need to replace the cylinder, but on the S-Series, you are probably just in need of a key. if your key is really worn all around, get another one made at the dealership (bring your title) and they can cut you a new one from the VIN of the car, rather than from a worn out key.
