Transmission slipping on a 2009 Chevy Cobalt LT, car is driveable, however engine light is on? Estimate on rebuild and/or used transmission?

Have there been any recalls issued

Key currently in ignition and won't come out or even turn to off position

When we try to start the nothing happens. We have no power and cannot remove the key or shift the shifter. According to other posts it looks like this is potentially a recall. The frustrating thing is we already had our ignition switch replaced because of a recall.

My question is, is it safe to jump start a car when the key is already turned to the first position in the ignition. We want to see if jumping will allow us to drive it to the dealership but don't want to fry anything.

Thanks in advance

I bought my 2009 Chevy cobalt used about 10 months ago! I have not had any issues with the vehicle other then hearing about the recall as soon as I got recall notice in the mail I made arrangements with my Chevy dealership to get it fixed! recently got the recall done on vehicle from my Chevy dealership about two weeks ago and today coming out of work I had a dead battery which I thought was weird because I swear I didint leave anything on and on top of having no power my key was stuck in the ignition ! I then had my vehicle jump started and the key came out fine after that but my check engine light has been on since My car got power back it was not there going in to work this morning! I noticed a lot of people having the issue with losing power and key getting stuck but was just curious if anyone's check engine light came on Aswell?
