Place key in ign. lock n tumbler and turn to "on" position. Under the column you'll see a small hole to put a small screwdriver or rod into and press it in. While you're pressing it, pull the lock n tumbler out. Installation is the reverse of removal but without the use of the rod. Just push the lock n tumbler in the hole and turn key to lock position and pull key out.

I had this same problem. You will need to replace the ignition cylinder and this can only be purchased from Pontiac ($245). The problem is actually the key release button, its sticking. There is a small button under the steering wheel that you can only see if you take the steering wheel cover off. If you get that fixed you shouldnt have any problems

The instructions for installing a new alternator usually read to fully charge the battery (12.3 - 12.8 volt range). Otherwise, the alternator will be damaged when it initializes. I have seen some extreme damage result from installing a new alternator with a low-charge battery. The torque required to turn an alternator when damaged in this scenario is unbelieveable!
