SOURCE: Moaning noise in steering column
The probably lubed the intermediat shaft conenction. The loud poping noise could be from them not sitting the boot back correctly. Inspect your boot. As for the moaning noise Only thing I can think of is a hydraulic noise.

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.
