Time to take apart the steering column.

Mine is a little older than yours. But if they are at all similar this will be easier than you think.

You'll need to remove the two piece steering column shroud (just behind the steering wheel). Screws located underneath. You may have to jockey with the column tilt and be a bit of a contortionist, but don't get frustrated. Just getting the bottom off should be enough.

On the left side, directly opposite the ignition, you’ll see a piece of round plastic held on with two bolts. This is really the ignition switch.
Take out the bolts ( 7 or 8mm).
Take out the two plugs (blue and white) from behind it.
Take off the switch.

Hope this helped.
Mike

SOURCE: 2000 Saturn SL2 - replaced ignition then BCM failed. Related?

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.

SOURCE: Replaced ignition switch on Saturn, won't recognize new switch.

Must be flashed. This is your security system. Check other GM dealers for better price.

SOURCE: Replaced ignition switch on Saturn, won't recognize new switch.

1. Try an online auto computer rebuilder. The problem is the Eprom is set to a specific number for the switch. The number of the new switch has to reprogrammed. The only other work around is to obtain a matching computer and switch. If the individual chip is not soldered in you could send it out to be flashed mail order.

Ignition switch diagram


First put it in the run position, On the right side of the ignition switch housing there will be a small hole (2002 Saturn). Put a piece of a coat hanger in the hole. This will allow you to PUSH/PRESS UP up on a spring loaded tab/latch (about 1/2 inch in) to remove the ignition core/cylider. However if you are having trouble, the key is most likely worn excessivly. You will need the key to pull on to get the cylinder out. IF THE KEY will not stay in the cylinder than USE A SCREWDRIVER to lightly pry out the core. If you are having trouble than here are two tips, turn the key slightly back I MEAN SLIGHTLY BACK and try again also if the vehcicle has an automatic transmission remove the shift interlock cable from under the housing this will be a black plastic piece right underneath the cylinder, here the key will probably break the 3 little plastic clips. No worrys... If and when you do this, simply reattach it by wraping a wire tie around it.
