Question about 1997 GMC Sierra
Your title is confusing between the 2 model years listed, but here's what I can suggest. Either way it sounds like a worn out ignition key cylinder that is just worn out. However, the '97 pickups have the steering wheel lock feature when the key is in the off position. You might want to try moving the steering wheel side to side and see if it is bound up on the locking mechanism. If it's a 2005 truck, that isn't the case and it is most likely a bad key cylinder

key maybe worn down.. I suggest you take ownership to dealer and they will cut you a brand new key from your VIN. This will eliminate any key issues. most of the time the will work perfect. if not then the cylinder has problems with it and will need service by a locksmith. the dealer will charge to much for this service, so find a automotive locksmith to help.

Sounds like the oil sending switch is shorted out to ground,also could be broken or worn out.Its only a 5-10$ part.Unless you can test it.
