There should be a flap under the steering wheel that can be opened with a flat head screw driver. Once open you will find a button that when pressed releases the key. This may get it unstuck. You can stall the car to kill the engine if this does not work. After doing this disconnect the battery so it will have enough juice to start and take you to the dealer.

The ignition went bad in my 2006 Saturn Ion a couple of years ago. Luckily I have the manual transmission so I choked the engine to stop it. I called my local Saturn dealership and was advised the the ignitions are going bad on them, but not enough have been reported for them to actually recall the part. I ended up having to have the entire ignition replaced and rekeyed to match my original key. I do suggest taking it to a GM dealership to do it, the mechanic I took mine to spent 3 days alone trying to program the new ignition into the car, and killed my battery numerous times in the process. Hope this helps. :)

sounds like a bad key switch. the key needs to go in start car then turn off and be removed. you say the key cannot be removed. Is the key still in there? if so you need a new key lock drum. and/or a new ignition switch behind the actual key lock.the key lock can be removed and the electric switch is down in there. once the key lock is out you can start with a screwdriver. the mew key lock will come with a new key and snaps right in. to remove the old key lock refer to a manual for procedure.

2006 Saturn Ion 2 - Key stuck in ignition and will not turn off.


1) the NHTSA will do nothing as its not a safety issue, as a lock cylnder can never lock up a steering wheel while in the run position..it is impossible.
2) most times it not a quality problem with the lock cylnder but that people have too many keys and things on their key ring and that weight ruins the lock cylnder
