1st - pop off the face plate ring
2nd - remove bolt(s) 1 -2 of them
3rd - insert key into switch and turn
This releases the cable lock and you should be able to pull it right out

1995 pontiac grand prix se 3.1 want start, tried shifting park to neturl, plenty spark, tried shorten starter with screw driver, securtity flashes on dash, turn key nothing , all fuses hot, what next,

If the security system has been triggered this will shut down not only your starter but also your fuel pump. the most comon cause on a passlock II system is the wiring at the ignition lock cylinder breaks causing the computer to not be able to see the resistance chip in the key. you will most likely need a new ignition lock cylinder, keep in mind that you need to have the new cylinder keyed for the original key otherwise if you use a different key the security system will see the wrong resistance and you are back to square 1. your local dealer will be able to read the resistance of your original key and get you a cylinder to match.

1996 grand am ignition switch how to get it out

First you have to take the cover off from around the steering column. There are 3 T25 torx screws that secure the two halves of the cover together. They are on the underside of the column. Then you have to get the ignition to turn forward to enable you to push in the detent to release the ignition from the column. The detent is on the housing around the lock cylinder. If you were looking at the cylinder from the passenger side it would be on the right of the housing. Then you have to follow the wires to the underside of the dash and unplug it.

How difficult is it to replace ignition cylinder lock. Cylinder was ripped out

The ignition switch is usually mounted to the steering column and is operated by a linkage rod.
NOTE On column-mounted ignition switches, don't confuse the switch with the lock cylinder and keys. The ignition switch is not normally visible. On some vehicles, the steering column support has to be removed and the column lowered to find the ignition switch. On others, the switch is accessible under the dash.
f32-17gif.gif The ignition switch is operated by the key switch. Courtesy of Ford Motor Company. To replace the switch:
  • Remove the ignition switch wiring harness.
  • Unbolt it from its position.
  • Bolt the new switch into position.
  • Attach the witing harness.

Change ignition cylinder? (lock?)

Grandammit...Hey...replacing a lock cylinger requires recoded ignition keys, and a new lock cylinder requires dissassembly of the steering column. Not an easy fix, and I wonder if you are really the don't sound like a 9 month pregnant girl. Sorry......if I am wrong I am wrong. Drive it with a scredriver until you give birth then fix it.
