First check to see if the steering wheel is up against the lock. That would cause the key to be almost impossible to turn. Give the steering wheel a push or pull in the direction that allows it to go. Go from there.

Have you checked to confirm that the problem is not with your battery connections? The greatest percentage of no-starts is a loose or corroded clamp at the battery. The electrical draw of the starter motor is pretty heavy, so it's very important to peridically remove and clean the battery connections with a wire brush, and make sure the clamps are on tight, after the cleaning.

YA MY 97 LUMINA WONT TURN OVER EVERYTHING ELSE WOTKS THO, MY LIL KID HUNG ON MY IGNITION WITH THE KEYS IN AND TURNED TO THE ON POSITION I CAME BACK AND KEYS WERE ON THE FLOOR, COULDNT EVEN PUT KEY IN


How would you get your ignition to turn the engine over without a key?

If the ignition key is damaged or the lock cylinder is damaged and you can't get the key in ignition lock...start there. Is the key broken off in the ignition? Please provide some more information as the description of your problem doesn't make much sense.

Without knowing the resistance of the pellet on the key the anti -theft system will not allow it to start .

PASS-Key® II is a registered trademark of the Delco Electronics Corporation.
When a key is inserted in the ignition, the contacts located in the ignition cylinder contact a resistor pellet located in the key. The instrument cluster (IPC) measures the resistance of the key pellet. The IPC then compares this value to a value stored in the IPC's memory. The IPC then performs one of the following functions: A new key shouldn't cost that much , a whole new ignition lock cylinder with a new key can be bought for $36.00 . on line .
