Question about 1992 Chevrolet Lumina
We have a 1992 chevy lumnia and we had the ignition switch stick in the on position after he took the steering wheel off and tried to figure out if it was the switch or cylinder that was causing the problem he used graphite and it seemed to work for about a week and now it is stuck again and the only way to shut it off is by taking the cables off the battery and stop all power but you cant get it to turn even if you broke the key off. but the key has come out now but it is still stuck or frozen in the on position. so if you can tell us what causes this or what we should do to fix this problem? thank you
I had bad luck with graphite before. Try spraying a little bit of WD-40 on it, wiggle and insert and remove the key till the cylinder lubricates and turns. If that doesn't work you might need a new ignition switch.

SOURCE: I cant get the key
I cant get the key out or lock steering column and the automatic transmission shift lever locks up in park.
Now if I take the battery off every thing works fine.
This sure seems like a reset problem.I run the car by not having it in the locked column position and get the shifter to work by putting a key in the hole furnished
by chevy to bypass shift lock. thank you

Does anyone know what the recalled part is for the Chevy Cobalt that causes the key to get stuck in the ignition? I would greatly appreciate any help on this as I do not have $600 to get it fixed.
