Make sure the radio is on to set the clock. Then with the radio on, press the clock button. The field you will be setting will flash (hour, ect). Just turn the tuner dial while this is flashing. Then when you have it set how you want, press the clock button again. The next field will flash and you do the same thing. When it is all set, just don't touch anything. It will take the new info you have put in after several seconds. Need a Rocket Scientist degree for this clock!

SOURCE: key stuck at ACC position
A bit too late to help you I know, but this may help others. The problem is most likely a small lever arm microswitch that is oriented with the lever arm DOWN located just beneath the drivers side of the shifter. This is an interlock switch which prohibits starting the Ion in anything but park or neutral. There is nothing that holds the switch on the two posts that it mounts on and it is quite awkward to put back on. I strongly recommend using a small strip of double sided 3M tape on the side of the microswitch to prevent it from coming off in future. When this switch is not made, it will not allow the ignition switch to turn to the off position from ACC and it will not allow it to release the key. However, if you do not feel comfortable performing the repair, there is a 'secret access hole' under the steering colum, it is a small square door you can pry off so that you can put your finger in to it an depress a small round button that will allow you to rotate the key to OFF and remove it. And yes, you pretty much need three arms and have to stand on your head to do this, but, it will allow you to turn off the ACC and remove the key.

SOURCE: saturn ion fuel pump
Misnikie32 . .. I just had the same problem around the time you figured out your problem and I just got it fixed yesterday. For almost 3 weeks I had starting problems and I constantly smelled gas. The problem is a safety issue and the car needs to be recalled. The hose that is connected to the fuel pump is cracked. Since the hose is incorporated with the fuel pump, the entire mechanism needs to be changed. Look at spending about 700.00 . I informed saturn and told them my life was at danger. Please contact them on their website and goto your state's attorney general and launch a complaint, as well as the office of defective investigations and the NTSAB (google them). This needs to be brought to their attention and all owners of this car. I googled this and many other people are having this problem. Some are even on this forum. PLEASE DO THIS ! ! ! !

The remote won't ework because the problem is in the vehicle. Just for test purposes and possible remedy. Remove and clean the negative battery cable. Ensure a clean , tight connection. Then find the body ground. Yhis ground is locted usually at the top rear of the engine. .I's a snall stainless steel strap bolted to the engine and fire wall, This must olsobe clean with a good contack. Might as well clean the + cable and connection on the battery while you are there. Good luck and keep me posted olease. Good Luck, Ned_
