There is a TSB on this where a few parts are replaced and lubricated in the steering column/ignition switch. I fixed my own by simply lubricating it. The parts aren't really necessary. I found teh TSB online and it gave me enough info to take things apart and luve as needed.

Hi I am Vortash I believe this is an automatic vehicle and you have to put the vehicle into park before the keys are released .. some times the release solenoid sticks due to a worn switch on the gear shift replacement of either the switch or the solenoid ( depending on which is found to be faulty ) cures this problem .. regards vortash

2001 Monte carlo...ignition will not turn from "OFF" position.(like wrong key)have had no issues with key in past and have tried spare key already


Good Evening, unfortunately it does happen. They are known for ignition problems, we had one on the lot for 3 months started every day, then one morning it just decided it did not want to turn at all. We took some brake clean and sprayed a little at a time taking the key out and wiping it off every time to get the grub out of it. then sprayed some pb blaster a few times and wiggled as we went and it finally freed the stuck tumblers. Try that and let me know how it goes.

'95 rodeo cant turn the key, the key is not stuck,the cylinder is


Try turning the steering wheel while trying to turn the ignition. Didn't work? Can you remove the key? Use some WD40 with the tube and spray a little in. Put the key in, pull it out, repeat several times. Put the key in and wiggle the ignition lock back and forth.(try while wiggling the steering wheel back and forth, too.) Still won't move? Try pulling the key out just a small fraction of an inch and try turning the ignition.

Still no solution, time to give up and call a locksmith.
