Q: What is the solution when the anti thief device locks up my car on 2004 Saturn Ion

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
When I place the key in the ignition and try to start my car, the anti thief device locks the entire car and I am unable to get the key out. Is there a after market solution to this problem? I have heard that cutting the white wire to the ignition will disable this problem. Is this safe to do, and if so can you walk me through this fix.

Anti-theft has nothing to do with you being unable to get the key out. You have a bad ignition lock switch. That means the mechanical lock assy. not the electrical switch. I have sold plenty of lock assy.
