It may be better to go to the dealer as the key lock and tumbler have the sensor in it for the anti theft unit an they can have the original key cut again so you dont have to get one for ign and one for doors

I have a 2000 Pontiac grand am Se and just recently put my key in n it doesn't turn have to jiggle it until it turns on to start what does this mean


The key or lock cylinder parts are worn out. You either need to get a new key cut from a GOOD master key, or have the ignition switch replaced.

Won't start. key works in aux position but not when turned all the way


If you have power in aux position(ex.)radio works but doesn't when you put the key in the start position,the ignition switch is bad,the contacts are warn out for starting/cranking&run positions,these are used everytime you start your car,but auxillary is ony used once in awhile(ex.)your sitting listening to music while waiting for someone to come,but if you do have radio in the run position,but no cranking/starting you could have a blown resistor on fire wall or fuse for ignition,or the starter has called it quits,good luck I don't know if the starter is clicking rapid or just one click or just no power not cranking or cranking a better description of everything that happens will make this alot easier

I have a 2000 grand prix the key will not turn off all the way. we use to wiggle the key and after awhile it would turn off ,now it won't. please help!


Sounds like you need a new ignition switch. Any auto parts store should carry the part. Pretty straight forward to change, take off the cover to your steering column, there should be maybe 2 screws to unscrew, then you just unplug the plug and switch the part and put the screws back in, and finally put the cover back on.

Don't know how to get old ignition switch out to put new one in.


How to remove an ignition cylinder for repair or replacement if your Grand Cherokee's ignition won't turn. This is due to the tumblers failing. Key must be tuned to the on position. Then you press in the lock tab to release it so you can repair yourself or more likely, bring it to a locksmith to have the tumblers replaced. This can be done to match the existing key. Obviously, you'll have to get it to turn to do this. Usually a good dose of WD40 and tapping on the head of the key (straight in) will free it up temporarily. This would be the view from underneath the column after removing the two shroud halves.

Where is the ignition switch located on a 2000 pontiac grand am gt.


you put your ignition key into the lock cylinder. if you put the right key in, it fits and turns the ignition switch. so your ignition switch is more or less directly behind and in line with your key when it is in the lock cylinder. inside the steering column. it is not easy to get at, and you will find that special anti-theft tools are needed to replace it.

Ignation wont start


If your battery checks out, but the starter is still silent, it may be a faulty ignition switch. Turn the key to the on position (not all the way to start). If the red warning lights on your dash don't light up (and your battery connections are clean), the ignition switch is bad. If they do light up, turn the key to the start position. The dash warning lights should turn off at this key position (most cars). If you're not sure, turn on the headlights. When you try to start the car, the lights should either dim (a lot) or turn off completely. If they do, your ignition switch should be ok. If not, the switch will need replacement.

My 2000 grand prix needs the key reprogramed. I lost the original key and now the new one wont program on its own.


Make sure you have the right type of ignition keys, there should be a stamp on the keys "PK3" which is the right ignition keys you need to have for your passlock system.

Auto Relearn:
Time required, approximately 10 minutes.

Insure that the battery is fully charged.
Turn the ignition switch from the OFF position to the CRANK position attempting to start the vehicle. The vehicle will start and then stall.
Leave the ignition switch in the ON position while observing the security indicator.
When the security indicator turns off, which can take up to 10 minutes, turn the ignition switch off. Wait 10 seconds.
The BCM and the PCM will learn the new code on the next start attempt.

You may have to get somebody with a scan tool to reset the computer codes to make this work.

Thank oyu for using fixya and good luck

Put the fuses back in,and unplug the fuel pump from the tank,and turn the key on,if it does not blow the fuse,then the pump is the problem.Rate this if it is helpful,thank you.
