WIll the key turn at all? You can not turn the engine off? What is the model and year of your Saturn?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.

it is a 2005 ion. the key will turn to the right but not to the left. research has indicated this is a common problem with the saturn. i saturated it with 40wd. it did not help. i have a tow truck coming to disable the battery and have it towed to my mechanic but would like to avoid this.



Will the engine start ? Or doesn't the key turn far enough?

the engine is on. i can't turn the car off. it is still running. the key does not turn far enough.
This will not be something you will be able to repair without some knowledge of auto repair, several things will need to be taken apart to fix this problem. The problem is most likely the ignition switch is keeping the key from moving. If the vehicle is running I would just drive it to the shop and leave it until they can repair it. To shut it off you could pull the injection fuse or the computer fuse and then disconnect the battery so it does not go dead.
