the only thing that finally get the car to start is turning the
key to all positions rapidly while running the shifter thru all
positions. The problem is the horn keeps honking while i
do this so the neighbors are ready to hurt me! Help please
Either the horn relay is welded or there is a problem with the clockspring it the car has an airbag. I know the 96 Saturn doesn't use a horn relay but yours i believe does.
As for the no start, if the car is left in neutral, does it then start?

Thank you for the relay answer but, the horn still honks AFTER i have removed the
fuse. Is the FUSE the same as the RELAY?
Also, when it get like this and only honks and does not start....it does not start in
Neutral either. I have been leaving it in Neutral the rest of the time and it
will start in Neutrtal. It tends to lock up in PARK so i don't use part anymore.
No the relay and the fuse are not the same. A relay has contacts that are controlled by the horn circuit. When the contacts close the horn blows. If the conyacts weld shut the horn keeps blowiing.
I am thinking a common thread between your horn and your starting problem and I believe it will have to be in that underhood junction. See what happens with pulling the horn relay and if that doesn't help we will have to look under that fuse and relay panel for shorts or damage
