I have been told that there is a locking clip that holds the switch together. If the clip comes loose the dash lights and running lights won't work when you pull it out. To check if this is what is going on turn on the lights, very slightly push the switch in (like you are going to turn it off) you will find the dash light and the running lights will come back on. I'm not sure how to re-attach the clip that keeps coming loose.

After hitting a huge pothole why would all of a Saturn LS 2000 s gauges all come on and the vehicle not come out of park?

You may need to have the "Body Control Module" replaced on your car. We have a 2002 Saturn L200 and the same symptoms occured. Dash lights were flashing, dome light flashing, couldn't shift out of park, etc. Dealer replaced the part under warranty (at the time) and we haven't had the problem since.
