Sounds like your ignition is failing. I would reccommend a mechanics opinion, however, those are very common symptoms of ignition failure.

2000 pontiac Bonneville won't start security light flashes all lights works is transponder gone bad?


The wires in the steering column to the ignition lock cylinder tend to break. The the key and ignition lock cylinder must be replaced to correct this condition, it's just not detecting your key hope this helps or gets you thinking. Check battery connection or try repriming fuel system by turning the key switch on and off a couple times without cranking.

Remove and install an ignition on a 1999 pontiac bonniville


Are you talking about the ignition switch or the key cylinder? The ignition switch is on the steering column under the dash. Changing the key cylinder requires the removal of the steering wheel.

Key in ignition won,t turn 2004 ford escape


several things, does key go in and out easily, turn steering wheel in both directions while turning key. sometimes the steering wheel lock binds the lock cylinder and turning wheel releases the pressure and it will turn. other than that the ignition cylinder is jammed, wet key lightly with lubricant such as wd-40 and a light bit in key hole and try key again, If key is heavily worn out , try a different ignition key as it might not be disengaging all the tumblers in lock, if all this fails you need a new cylinder.

Cannot turn key in ignition to start car


Hi nicoleelgert, i suspect the steering lock is giving you the problem, all you need to do is turn the steering wheel left and right ( jiggle ) while turning the key in the ignition, it won't move much because it's locked but it will be enough to release the steering lock and allow you to turn key.. make sure you have the shifter in Park position too. Good luck . OK

My steering wheel won't move in my 2000 pontiac grand am gt...I can still put the car in drive, reverse, etc. But the steering wheel is not moving at all.


it may be your steering lock try and move the steering left and right whilst turning the ignition or an old car thief trick is just keep pull down to one side on the wheel until the steering lock snaps or shears and it should be free to turn after that good luck
