If the cylinder is out try a flat head screw diver insert it into the cylinder hole at the bottom will be a small slot for screw driver blade to go into and act as the ignition switch turn it forwards and it should start .

Ignition lock cylinder removal column

first defeat the air bag system. as that can be very dangerous to any mech. working so close to the driver air bag !!!
some time the (toyota/gm) car was renamed to 1998 Chev, Prism.
this happened in 1997 at the NUMMI factory in calif. why do i mention this , that is because they made may changes , at a spec.
chassis vin number in 1997. some have Toy 4A engine others 7a.
vast changes, and most online FSM books are vague to the extreme here.
but the basic procedure,
1: better minus pull.
2: air bag defeat. the above battery disconnect does not kill air bags
for some time.. (long)
3: steering base plastics, remove.
4: remove anti-theft temper screws (takes some skill )
5: remove key switch connector. (at end of switch pig tail)
6: key switch is not free to spin,
7: some require the steering wheel to be pulled.
if 7 is true, learn first hot to not loose the Air bag coil spring timing.
I highly recommend getting a real shop manual for this car.
working blind can be dangerous to you and others.
the books are not rare, i say get one.

I have a 95 Geo Prism and I can't get my key out of the ignition, it will start but, won't turn left to release the key.

when a tumbler inside the ignition lock gets worn or bent in the slightest it will hinder the ability to remove the key from the lock cylinder. A new replacement will be needed for they are not repairable

My ABS light is staying on - 1995 Geo Prism

Your abs light is permanent. Most people don't bother to fix this, it is expensive, and your car is getting old. It means that the anti lock brake system has failed and needs repair. But your brakes still work fine, just don't have anti lock. So I'm not saying tape over the light on the dash, but.
