You have a short in the column where the key goes
or the inside is not going back when you turn the key...try maybe a touch of wd40 oil and turn key a few times to see if it helps release

Pontiac Sunfire 1997. Won't start.


When jumped off ,if it drags to start,have the starter checked,and if when jumping the car off,the starter turns the engine over real good,then the cables are most likely the problem,replace them.

Changed the dashboard in the 1997 pontiac sunfire,


It has an imobaliser problem,your vehicles key ecu and dash are all paired together and will not work with any other different parts,the solition is to either put your own dash back or fit the ecu and key from the donor car too.

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

Put new ignition in 2003 sunfire. engine wont stay running and theft lock symbol on in dash


HI.

Follow this step to keep running your sunfire.
1 - Be sure the battery is full charged.
2 - Is better if you put a battery charged
3 - Turn the key to run position and tray to start the car and leave with the key in run position,
With a watch let pass 10 minutes no less. you gonna see the security light flashing and stop flashing after 10 munites.
4 - After 10 munites turn the key to off position during 30 seconds, with watch on your hand, OK.
6-- After the 30 seconds try to star the car

I hope this solve your problem.
Please letme know.

Thank you for use fixya.
