Saturns have a huge problem with the grease in the ignition switch. The never issued a recall though. The grease gets so thick and hard when it is cold, that the electrical contacts do not move with the key, and therefore either a: do not connect the starter wire, or b: the antitheft system does not get the "ok" signal and it thinks you are stealing your own car, and disables the starter and fuel pump. If I were the owner of your car, replacing the ignition switch is what I would do next.

I would love to answer this question but I am having the same issue. I have a 2000 LS with the V8..replaced the battery about 2 weeks ago and last night I went to go home and it won't start. All the bells ring when I turn the key but when I turn to the right to "start" position, nothing. No clicking, no noise at all. I called the Lincoln dealership and we went over the alarm light "not flashing" and shifter position. They have no advice other than "tow it in".
The vehicle had been running fine.

Its the power somewhere along the chain. So of course first is too check the battery. get a multimeter from harbor frieght.(5 bucks) Set it to D.C. voltage and place the red lead on the positive terminal, black on negative. It should read 12 volts if less, then you have a bad battery. Next jump start the car and repeat with car running, it should read 13 /14 volts. If not altenator is bad. If both are good ,clean battery terminals, nice shinny metal. hook up everthing nice and tight. Now start the car. Good luck
