Ignition Key Lock solenoid not working

1998 Pontiac Grand Prix SE 3.1L V6...I need the wiring diagram for the Ignition Key Lock solenoid. For some reason it is not working. I have 11.53v on the power side and ground side to battery has 11 ohms of resistance. The solenoid will not release so that you can remove the key from the ignition. If you put battery power and ground directly to the solenoid it works fine. I need to know where the solenoid gets it's power from. Any help would be appreciated.

The closed park position switch within the automatic transaxle supplies voltage to the steering electric park lock. The energized electric park lock pulls the mechanical lock in the ignition key cylinder away from the cylinder. The ignition key can then be turned to the LOCK position. The key can then be taken out of the cylinder.

I have 11.53v on the power side and ground side to battery has 11 ohms ? do a voltage drop test on the ground side not ohms . Do you know what voltage drop is ? Learn the right testing procedure , you could have broken wire strands inside the insulation , apply current an the circuit won't work correctly , but would show ok with ohm test's .

SOURCE: what does a P0102 code mean?

P0102 - Mass Airflow Circuit Low Input

Check to make sure the mass air flow sensor is plugged in and has a good connection. Do you happen to use a re-usable air filter such as a K&N? Often times when people recharge the re-usable filters they use too much oil which causes the the MAF sensor element to get dirty. Sometimes removing the sensor and cleaning the element very carefully with electronics cleaner can fix the problem.

By the way, the mass air sensor is mounted between the intake tube and air filter usually.

SOURCE: what does a P0650 code mean?

I believe it's a warning light malfunction. In other words, have it scanned and see if any codes come up. There is conflicting reports but basically your vehicle is trying to tell you something by way of a warning light on dash, that's not working.

Possibly shift interlock problem check the btsi fuse in the instrument fuse panel. There is a shift lock actuator in the column or center console that could be your culprit depending on if you have a column or floor shifter.

I connected the wrong ignition coil wire from the spark plug and now my r m p instrument cluster will not work


probably didn't connect the tacho wire to the right side of the coil for the first problem
because the engine was replaced it is possible that a sensor wire to a wheel for the traction light was damaged /disconnected

1995 pontiac grand prix se 3.1 want start, tried shifting park to neturl, plenty spark, tried shorten starter with screw driver, securtity flashes on dash, turn key nothing , all fuses hot, what next,


If the security system has been triggered this will shut down not only your starter but also your fuel pump. the most comon cause on a passlock II system is the wiring at the ignition lock cylinder breaks causing the computer to not be able to see the resistance chip in the key. you will most likely need a new ignition lock cylinder, keep in mind that you need to have the new cylinder keyed for the original key otherwise if you use a different key the security system will see the wrong resistance and you are back to square 1. your local dealer will be able to read the resistance of your original key and get you a cylinder to match.

Diagram on a pontiac grand prix


I have 07 Pontiac Grand Prix, the wrong key was inserted into the ignition the other day. Now when I try to use the correct key it will not insert completly in the ignition, goes in until last 1/4in of key. Im stuck, I bought the new lock cylinder but how do I get the old one out? I cant get the key to insert all the way so I cant get it to the "On" position, it will not turn at all. The key that was inserted in error is whole and nothing is missing it seems like there is something stuck. Any help would be appreciated...

Key stays in ignition


if the key won't turn all the way off...it's probably a bad lock cylinder.
