Talking about pulling the air bag,removing the clock spring,
special tools for the lock plate,then it gets easy.

Disconnect the batt. for like 20 min to kill the air bag,remove the bag ,then the wheel,(with the puller you rented),the tool to remove the clip for the lock plate come next( also rented from Auto Zone or such like)
The tumbler is held in with a pin that unscrews ,then the cyl. just slides out.

SOURCE: unable to insert key into ignition switch

Try this pull the steering wheel as far to the left as possible and while it is in this position try to insert key. Sometimes the steering wheel lock will get in a bind and prevent the key from being inserted. Hope this helps!!!

SOURCE: I have a 1990 cadillac deville, it was running

If you're saying it turnes over but doesn't start I think of two things. If it is not getting power to the spark plugs I think it is the ignition module inside the distributor(small black box on bottom inside). If it is getting power to the spark plugs I would check the fuel pressure. If no or little fuel then fuel filter and or the fuel pump.

SOURCE: 2001 cadillac deville security light won't turn off

It should have Turned off with the Insert of the Newly Programmed Key. If Not, It may need a Computer Reset. You Can try Pulling the ECM Fuse for 5 Min. to Reset the Computer. If this does not work, Try disconnecting the Battery and Reconnecting. Make sure that you have a RadioCode before Disconnecting the Battery Though. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Without knowing the resistance of the pellet on the key the anti -theft system will not allow it to start .

PASS-Key® II is a registered trademark of the Delco Electronics Corporation.
When a key is inserted in the ignition, the contacts located in the ignition cylinder contact a resistor pellet located in the key. The instrument cluster (IPC) measures the resistance of the key pellet. The IPC then compares this value to a value stored in the IPC's memory. The IPC then performs one of the following functions: A new key shouldn't cost that much , a whole new ignition lock cylinder with a new key can be bought for $36.00 . on line .

How do u fix a starting disable problem on a 1999 cadillac deville

The problem is either the key and or the ignition switch. The key has aresistor and the engine module reads this value when you start the car. If it is not the correct value the car will not start. MOST LIKELY THE WIRE(S) yhat come off the ignition lock cylinder are broke. This is a common failure. To correct a new ignition lock cylinder and key will be required to get the car to run

I can't get my key into my ignition

Good chance that the tumblers in the ignition cylinder has gone bad and the ignition switch needs to be replaced. Your going to have to call a lock smith that is familiar with the pass lock system for the GM products so you can have your cylinder and ignition keys programed to start the car, as the pass lock system is your anti theft engine immobilizer. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to answer any questions.
