MY steering column is locked on my 2004 Saturn Ion the key will not turn on. What do I do?
That light is the theft-deterrant system. Does the key not turn, or does the car refuse to start? If the key isn't turning, you should just need to wiggle the steering wheel to take the force off the column lock so the ignition can turn.
The key will not turn at all. We have tried every thing.
This leads me to believe there's something mechanical going on here. Do you have a spare key to try? I wonder if your key has worn down faster than the pins in your ignition switch.
The locksmith I talked to said I will need a new key made.
That's what it sounds like to me. Don't have your current key cloned- you should head to the dealer and have them make a fresh one that meets the original shape according to the VIN number. It's gonna be a bit expensive since it's a chipped key, but hopefully that'll fix the problem.
