I have a 2003 Pontiac grand am gt my ignition want turn and my steering wheel isn't locked also my floor gear shift is moving with the key out

Your shifter isn't going into the park position or the solenoid that locks the shifter and sends a signal to the ignition switch is bad. I believe you have to replace the entire shifter to fix this problem.

Key wont turn

Is the steering wheel locked? ,. you may have a broken part inside the steering wheel or at the shifting lever,. try carefully rolling the car in nuetral and while slowly moving throw it into gear, it may unblock the blockage --
Also, I hate to report this, but I'd be willing to bet you have excessive weight on your ignition key ring, which may have damages the ignition switch, which may now need replacing as a result...
Best regards

My key will not turn in the ignition cylinder?emericaskate288

Try moving the steering wheel back and forth, and see if you can unlock the steering column while turning the key. Don't be affraid to put your muscle in it. If not, you might have to get the ignition switch replaced.

My steering wheel won't move in my 2000 pontiac grand am gt...I can still put the car in drive, reverse, etc. But the steering wheel is not moving at all.

it may be your steering lock try and move the steering left and right whilst turning the ignition or an old car thief trick is just keep pull down to one side on the wheel until the steering lock snaps or shears and it should be free to turn after that good luck
