The ignition key controls many things including electrical & electronic. It also finally locks the steeringwheel by a pin/bolt sliding into the slot for keeping it locked when parked. Maybe the replaced model is different but only a trained repairman will be able to repair it.............sodeep

my 95 f150 had the same problem and it ended up being one of the fuses in the fuse panel. take a test light to your fuses. the smalest thing can generate the biggest problem.

sensor might be dirty, try removing them and cleaning them. Dont use sprays as they pose a threat more than they fix. Check tires to see if there is one that might be WAY lower than the rest. Or consider taking it to a shop if you cant find the rigth abs sensor.

SOURCE: 2000 Grand Prix won't shift from park

I just got done going through this. First make sure the fuse is good wich mine was. Then pull the plastic and everyting off the center counsel. Start by removing the cubby inside take the whole box out then open the cup holder and pop the plastic trim up and do it all the way down you will need to set your emergency brake so you can put the car in neutral to remove the trim piece. if you look down at the bottom of the shifter in front of the pivot point you will see a plug that is there it has 5 wires comming out of it. if your car dont shift the green wire with white stripe is broken. if your key dont turn back the purple wire with black stripe is broken. the reason I know this is only the green wire was broke when I first opened mine up you could see it. when I went to remove the plug the other wires fell off they were all dry rotted If this happens to you you could get luckey and find one at the bone yard I did but the purple wire was broke on it thats how I know thats what controls the key. I had to fix the plug and wire it to my old harness because mine also has heated seats and preformance shift the one I got from the bone yard didnt. So if you manage to break all the wires off the plug like I did and need to wire in a new plug I have the wireing for you.looking at the back of the plug tang up top left not used top middle green top right red but there is 2 of these dosent matter wich one you use. now the bottom left purple middle red right orange and black. its not that bad to do yourself. please dont jam something in the shift lock release and leave it. They fail to tell you even with the key removed any kid can hop in and pull it out of park NOT SAFE.

2000 Pontiac grand prix ignition key won't turn off all the way and won't come out

Good chance your key is worn out. You may have to use more force to get it back and out turning the steering wheel at the same time. When you get it out, go to the dealer with your vehicle permit and have a new key cut. Don't get a key cut from your worn out key. I had the same problem with my 2000 grand prix. It might take some effort to get the key out and be careful not to break it off, but it will come out. Also try pushing the gear shift hard into park as the cable may be worn

Where is the shift modulator on a 95 grand prix v6 301

Modulators are typically located on the side of the transmission. Look for a small diameter vacuum hose down there and follow to the transmission body. That is most likely the modulator.

Good Luck!

2003 grand prix gear shift gets stuck in park

It is likely the wires to the sensor that detects when it is in park, located inside the center console. (fairly easy to pop the console open, I watched a couple of youtube videos to see someone do it first) The wires are very small (~20 ga) and they are installed with very little slack. The sensor is attached to the gear shifter, so it is pulling on these wires with every shift out of park, especially if you put it all the way down to 1st gear. You likely have a broken wire to this sensor. Splice it back together and that might fix your issue. (we actually had 2 wires broken, and key would not come out of ignition)

91 pontiac grand prix se key stuck in ignition

91 Grand Prix SE: If you can turn car off with the key, but can't get the key out - first thing you should check is to see if the button on the shifter is fully releasing (the button on the shift handle you have to push to shift out of Park).

You may be restricted by the shift lock, Press the shift lever FULLY into park. This may need adjustment....While shifting, observe the steering column, sometimes there is a portion that moves, and this could be manually assisted, until you get everything adjusted.

1995 pontiac grand prix se 3.1 want start, tried shifting park to neturl, plenty spark, tried shorten starter with screw driver, securtity flashes on dash, turn key nothing , all fuses hot, what next,

If the security system has been triggered this will shut down not only your starter but also your fuel pump. the most comon cause on a passlock II system is the wiring at the ignition lock cylinder breaks causing the computer to not be able to see the resistance chip in the key. you will most likely need a new ignition lock cylinder, keep in mind that you need to have the new cylinder keyed for the original key otherwise if you use a different key the security system will see the wrong resistance and you are back to square 1. your local dealer will be able to read the resistance of your original key and get you a cylinder to match.

Unable to remove key from ignition 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix

The ignition has an interlock that will not let you turn the key all the way to OFF until the transmission is in park.
This is done via a sensor either in the transmission itself, or on the shifter.

With the car off, step on the brake and shift from Park to Reverse, then back in to Park. You should hear a faint "click" as the interlock engages. If not, then your sensor (switch) may have failed.
