The malibus grand ams and aleros all had the same problem. you are going to need to replace the ign cylinder. You may be able to turn the key by lightly taping the end of the key with a hammer and turning at the same time. If you do get it to turn go get a cylinder from the dealer replace the cylinder. You have to program the theft. When you replace the cylinder try to start the car and leave the key in the on postion untill the the theft light goes out and you shopuld be fine.

if it doesnt turn you have a worn out ignition cylinder, the only fix is to replace it, Code the ignition lock cylinder, if necessary
CAUTION:Perform the body control module (BCM) theft deterrent relearn procedure whenever you replace the ignition switch lock cylinder.

SOURCE: ignition tumbler locked up
try a spare key, or push key into lock while turning
it is the tip [pointy end] of the key that releases the switch tumbler lock allowing it to turn. keys & switches wear out, a 'heavy' key ring especially wears the switch.

Try rocking the steering wheel back and forth. Also even though the tumbler is the cause most of the time you should check the electrical part of the switch at times when it goes it won't allow the key to turn. Rocking the steering wheel is so that you can make sure that it is not turning due to the steering lock putting to much pressure on the tumbler.
