Question about 2003 Pontiac Grand Am
At times, when starting the car, the a/c, radio, door locks, gauges and window switches quit working. I can sometimes jiggle the ign. key and all comes back to normal. Do you think it is the ign. switch or the cyl. lock itself?
It is more the ignition switch

I am intrigued, I used to have a similar vehicle and there was a button on the steering column that when press with ignition key in the aux position and a little pressure to take key out allowed it to turn all the way.
It is a little difficult as you have to twist it back whilst pressing the button! But it should work.
Hope this FixYa's problem?

while in park, press harder up past park and it will disengage. Otherwise there is a pin on the ignition you can press and remove the entire ignition. You call also lightly tap gently around igniton piece to loose the pins inside that hold the key.

First, spray a bunch of WD-40 into the key cylinder -- use the red tube which comes with the can to do this -- put something on the floor to catch the oil dripping down.
This has a good chance of solving your problem. After a couple of days, buy some graphite lubricant (Pep Boys) to blow into the key cylinder. Repeat the graphite every month or so for 6 months.

Same thing happened to me.
You will have to take it to the shop and have a dealer fix it.
It is what they call the "cluster" up by the firewall behind the engine that controls all the functions of the car.
