Question about 1994 Buick Skylark
The key goes easily in and out of the ignition cylinder but it will not move forwards or reverse. I've done everything but call the locksmith and have the cylinder looked at, including:
moving the steering wheel
tapping on the key in the ignition with a mallet
moving the column gear shifter
wiggling the key
inserting powder graphite in the lock cylinder
and I took the column covers off to expose no visible broken pieces or damaged wires.
Any help is appreciated!
What you do is disconnect the battery as to not set off the airbag, and then remove the steering wheel. This will allow you access to the retaining bolt, should be a torx 20 or 25. Pull the bolt out and the ignition will slide right out of the hole, like you are pulling the key out. Then unplug it and replace. Reinstallation is reverse of removal.

The ignition key cylinder in a Buick
unlocks the ignition and allows the Buick's engine to start. The
cylinder contains a switch on the end of it (inside the cylinder) that
sends an electric signal to the starter motor. When the ignition key
cylinder fails, the Buick won't start. When this happens, you'll need a
new ignition cylinder. Purchase replacement cylinders from Buick.
