Look around online your going to have to learn to pick a lock not hard at all to do on a chevy tell you how you'll need the little stem from a ball point pen the little clip. a Bobby pin or a couple of very Fine and thin allen wrenches those work best and just begin poking and probing it took me 15 min to unlock my switch but patience does pay off check and just look around for LOCKPICKING its a very helpful thing to learn especially if you every get locked out of a car or house its locksmith 101 from what I've heard and good luck

If not than you probably have to drill out

Any car thieves in your neighborhood that would help? seriously now look for a small hole under the lock that a paper clip wire would fit in.find an old key that 'kind of'' fits push the wire into the hole as you wiggle the key you jammed in there and pull out on it.if your unit doesn't have the afore mentioned hole to release cyl,you'll have to drive a punch into the key slot,risking damage to the assembly,or acquire the service of a local locksmith

My torrent will not start and the key will not come out what do I do

What year is it ? Does yours have floor mounted gear shifter on the console ?
Ignition Lock Cylinder Control Actuator
If the vehicle is equipped with a floor mounted console gear shifter, it has a ignition lock cylinder control actuator system in the steering column. The ignition lock cylinder control actuator's purpose is to prevent the ignition key from being turned to the OFF position when the transmission is in gear and the vehicle may still be moving. The column ignition lock system consists of a ignition lock cylinder control actuator , and a Park position switch that is located in the automatic transmission (A/T) shift lock control switch. The ignition lock cylinder control actuator contains a pin that is spring loaded out to mechanically prevent the ignition key cylinder from being turned to the Lock position when vehicle transmission is not in the Park position. If vehicle power is lost, and/or the transmission is not in the Park position the operator will not be able to turn the ignition key to the Lock position and will not be able to remove the ignition key from the column.

I lost my keys and i bought a new set of locks, now i changed the door locks but i am not able to get the ignition lock out, any suggestions?

You have to turn the key cylinder to the on position in order to remove it. You have a few options, you can call the dealer and have key cut by the vin, you could call a locksmith and have him cut a key to match the cylinder, or you can drill the original cylinder and tumblers out. If you choose to drill it out, you will still need to turn the mechanism inside to the o position before you can insert the new cylinder.

If you can't turn the lock cylinder to the on or acc position, you'll probably have to drill out the old lock.

Hi i have a 1997 grand prix the keys where lost so i got a new ignition switch but can not remove the old key cylinder because i dont have the keys to turn it in the start position to release the old...

Yes it will work that way. Just drill out the retaining clip in the ignition switch that holds the lock cylinder in place. Be care ful with the switch. The new lock will slide right in with key in start position. If it has a rectangular looking metal pin securing it, drill into the plastic part of the switch with a 5/32 drill bit about 1/2 inch back toward the lock cylinder to take out the pop rivet holding the spring loaded pin mechanism in place. The spring comes out and push the pin down with a flatblade and pull lock out......Mike

I don't know how you will do it but the procedure is to insert the key and turn the ignition to the on position and then the lock cylinder will pull straight out. Since you don't have a key you may have to force it with a big screwdriver turning the cylinder.

Ignition lock cylinder wont come out. bought a new one to replace it, but cannot get the old one out. Any ideas? HELP!!!

under the steering weel, right below the lock cylinder there are three holes, two about the same size one smaller, the small hole is to pick the lock cylinder with a thin small screw driver i prefer philips.

1.- insert the key
2.- turn the key to on position (don't start the car)
3.- insert the screw driver until you touch the cylinder, find the locking ball, push, lock cylinder should move and pull the key with the lock cylinder
4.- install the new cylinder by pushing in.
