Question about 1995 Pontiac Grand Prix
Installed new ignition module in my 1995 grand prix and now my I cant shift out of park when steering collum is bolted up?
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.

check your fuseable links and your electrical ignition switch wear where your key turns and moves the rod to move the switch on the steering column under the dash

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.
