Go to your local Chevrolet or GMC dealer and have a new key made. It was common for Ions to have ignition lock and switch issues (before the recall by GM) so folks would replace them and keys wouldn’t match doors. The key the dealer cuts for you should work in the doors and trunk, but probably won’t work in the ignition.

You could jump the car and see if the fob is recognized. Then you can open it. Or get a slim-jim to slide the door mechanism open.
