If it is a in floor shifter take the cover off and there is a pink are red button for emergencies push it ,I know it sounds crazy,if not look at the linkage iunder the car,or check I think that year came optional with a anti theft option check that there is a order to unlock everything like put your foot on the brake the the key in and turn the steering wheel and it will lock .I am not sure of the order but it is something like that but I had the same problem and it was the pink button ,and that button is for when the cable brakes so it gives you other options

SOURCE: Key won't turn steering wheel not locked.

common for this key switch to be defective. Might try graphite lubricant to spray in the hole. Once you replace key switch it will have to be recoded (electronically)by a lock smith, repair shop or dealer.

SOURCE: ignition tumbler locked up

try a spare key, or push key into lock while turning
it is the tip [pointy end] of the key that releases the switch tumbler lock allowing it to turn. keys & switches wear out, a 'heavy' key ring especially wears the switch.

SOURCE: my ignition switch is either locked or frozen?

The key/ignition switch needs to be replaced. Very common in newer GM vehicles. The key either wont turn, wont go in, or the key wont release from the tumbler. Check with a local Chevy dealer to see if there has been a recall issued for this. But you will need to have it serviced regardless.

How many times must you post the same question? Have you insured you are using the correct key? If so, spray WD-40 or similar into lock, put key in and out several times, wiggle, respray and keep trying. Try turning the steering wheel slightly back and forth as you do this. Good luck, you may have to disassemble if a part inside broke.

Steering column locked


When you get the key into the ignition, Try turning the wheel to one side or the other as you turn the key. Some vehicle's steering columns will "lock" if the wheel is turned to tightly when the ignition gets turned off. Hope that helps.

2004 monte carlo problem with key


This is a mechanical issue. Try moving the gear shift around. There's an interlock that prevents you from turning the key all the way off if the vehicle is in gear. This is so that if you are driving and the key gets turned accidentally, that the steering wheel does not lock! It the linkage is messed up, or in the case of a console shift, the cable is damaged or out of adjustment, you cannot turn the key to off. Sometimes you can push the shifter harder into park and it will allow the key to be turned the rest of the way to off, whick will also verify this problem.

Is the steering column locked? If so try jiggling steering wheel back and forth while trying to remove key. It could be the locking pin in the column preventing the key from being turned far enough to be removed.
