Unfortunately no, there is no way to remove the steering lock. When you park your car, before you shut it off, spin the steering wheel from side to side, and center it before you shut the ignition off, this will help.

I have a 2003 Pontiac grand am gt my ignition want turn and my steering wheel isn't locked also my floor gear shift is moving with the key out

Your shifter isn't going into the park position or the solenoid that locks the shifter and sends a signal to the ignition switch is bad. I believe you have to replace the entire shifter to fix this problem.

I have a2003 Pontiac grand am. the key will not turn to the on position. how can I fix this

This is most likely an issue with the locking mechanism in the key hole. It may just need a good "jiggle" to get it to unlock. You can also try moving the steering wheel left and right while you are trying to turn the key. The steering wheel sometimes has a locking mechanism that is tied to the ignition.

With your info about turning the wheel to get it to crank, sounds like it might be the ignition switch. But, without some testing its hard to know for sure based on your info.

The car is locked up. won't turn over or do anything.

Hi there. Insert the key into the ignition slot. While turning on, twist the steering wheel at the same time. this should unlock the steering wheel.

Had the same problem. PONTIAC has issued a TSB that dealer know about. The Engine is MIS-ALIGNED and needs add'l rods to be installed to fix this problem. This will be done AT YOUR EXPENSE. I found this out the hard way.
Best of Luck
