Question about Cars & Trucks
Well if wiggling the steering wheel doesn't work there's more to it. I can't take credit for this fix, but here's a link referencing the exact problem and solution. It does involve taking the steering column apart somewhat but it doesn't look too bad. In case the link below gets removed for some reason, just Google: "2004 Pontiac GTO key wont turn" Good Luck;

1st Remove Battery cable from Battery because the only time the air bags will deploy is when the key is in the ignition. I have tilt steering and when I put the steering wheel in the up most position. I came right out. But now it seems to stick more lately.

The ignition has an interlock that will not let you turn the key all the way to OFF until the transmission is in park.
This is done via a sensor either in the transmission itself, or on the shifter.
With the car off, step on the brake and shift from Park to Reverse, then back in to Park. You should hear a faint "click" as the interlock engages. If not, then your sensor (switch) may have failed.
