Well that sucks.

Have you tried working the brake and shifting gears while trying to rotate the key?
My thought is that maybe the brake interlock is jammed up in the park position and wull not allow you to rotate the key because it thinks it is still in a forward or reverse gear, instead of park.

The battery needs to be hooked up for the interlock to function.

Honestly, I'm an S car guy, but I'm blindly assuming your car is an automatic AND that an Ion interlock system could conceivably get stuck like I described.

In fact, I don't know that I've ever heard of an Ion key getting stuck in Run.

If you can't figure it out, i suppose your best option is a GM dealer (chevy) for the ignition switch AND the ignition cylinder.

After removal (locksmith) and reinstallation, you can do the security system relearn procedure to get the PCM, BCM, and ignition switch all on the same page so the car will start n run.
