Try spraying some powdered graphite lock lube into the lock cylinder and work the key in and out, do not use any type of oily spray, it may work in the short term but will jam the lock later, the lock lube is avil from any hardware store.

My key wont turn and the steerring lock is stuck on


The malibus grand ams and aleros all had the same problem. you are going to need to replace the ign cylinder. You may be able to turn the key by lightly taping the end of the key with a hammer and turning at the same time. If you do get it to turn go get a cylinder from the dealer replace the cylinder. You have to program the theft. When you replace the cylinder try to start the car and leave the key in the on postion untill the the theft light goes out and you shopuld be fine.

2000 Alero Security light flashing and wont start


With the new lock cylinder in it, turn the key on. The security light should blink. Leave the key on for 10 minutes, the security light will quit blinking and go out after 10 min. This will reprogram your security system and the car should start. Also leave a battery charger on it while the key is on, If the battery goes dead during the 10 minute reprogram sequence, you will have to start over again.

Blazer wont start,key stuck in wont turn to resting place


Check for jambed linkage. Key turns cylinder. Cylinder is connected to starter switch at bottom of steering column via linkage. Worth a try.
