SOURCE: 1997 pontiac sunfire key wont turn in ignition

You will have to have the ignition cylinder replaced in the car. The only thing that keeps that ignition from turning is a little tang on the sdie of it. The only way that tang moves is by the tumblers inside the cylinder moving it. They will have a hard time replacing it too as they can't remove the cylinder from the bore until it is in the "run" position. Obviously there are ways to get them out but it usually involves using half the tools of a good tech's toolbox. if it is towed the towtruck driver will have to use dolly wheels or remove the shifter cable at the transmission to get it to move as it will be stuck in park- unless is a standard shift.
I am sorry for the bad news. Get a second opinion from somebody that can put their hands on it , but it sounds like you have a tried all or most of the tricks.
Good luck...........Scott

SOURCE: NEED TO KNOW HOW TO CHANGE OUT IGNITION SWITCH ON

It is easy if you have the tools. you need a steering wheel puller and a spring compressor for the plate under the wheel. a bunch of screws and turn signal switch and hazzard switch you can gain access. Remember everything has to go back where it came from, no exceptions in this case.

SOURCE: key ignition switch needs replaced lock cylinder

disconnect the battery and pull the air bag fuse out to diable the air bag. Remove the steering coulmb trim covers and expose the lock cylinder. If the lock cylinder can be turned and is functional then push in the bottom tab and turn the lock cylinder then pull the whole cylinder out. If the keys broke inside and the lock cylinder is not functional the bottom tab will need to be drilled out.

SOURCE: unable to remove key from ignition 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix

The ignition has an interlock that will not let you turn the key all the way to OFF until the transmission is in park.
This is done via a sensor either in the transmission itself, or on the shifter.

With the car off, step on the brake and shift from Park to Reverse, then back in to Park. You should hear a faint "click" as the interlock engages. If not, then your sensor (switch) may have failed.

I am replacing the steering column with keys can i reset the anti theft


The key that fits the replacement column lock will not have the right chip for your car. You would need to have a new key with the chip for your car cut with the teeth to fit the new lock.

Where is the ignition switch located on a 2000 pontiac grand am gt.


you put your ignition key into the lock cylinder. if you put the right key in, it fits and turns the ignition switch. so your ignition switch is more or less directly behind and in line with your key when it is in the lock cylinder. inside the steering column. it is not easy to get at, and you will find that special anti-theft tools are needed to replace it.

Keys do not open doors just the keyless remote


Sounds like someone replaced the ignition. The vibe uses one key for all locks and if you replace just one the key wont work. you might see if the dealer can get a factory replacement from the factory key code. you will need to get a new key with the factory code as well but this should solve the problem.
