I'm guessing your gran prix is a floor shifter?
if so, sitting in drivers seat have car running,put your foot on the brake,and move the shifter to first gear,while you are doing this watch the steering cover behind the steering wheel rotate also.when you see the column cover moving bring the shifter back to the park position,while watching which way the column is rotating,when you get to park put your hand around the bottom of that rotating column cover and turn it up further and remove your key.the shifter cable needs to be adjusted some

I have 98 grand prix ignition is stuck in start had to pull fuel pump fuse but cant shut car off lights are still on


Suggest disconecting the battery. Then you can work on the problem. it is not clear if the issue is the key stuck in the start position in the iginition switch or if the starter motor is stuck (running) after the car starts. If it the starter motor is running... Time for a new starter. If it is the ignition switch, try
pushing the key in and turning back off. Still stuck? Try pulling pn the key and turning off. Either way, if it is the key, yime for a new ignition switch.

Removing Plug Wires from '02 Pontiac Grand Prix, 3.8 Liter V6


often times the connection inside the plug boot gets corroded and it's almost impossible to remove the wires with out damage. when this happens I gennerally replace the wires anyway this saves you problems in the long run . the sparkplug wire removalk pliers are a good investment however they are only as good if the boots themselves are not siezed up on the plugs. I have had this happen alot over the 20 years i been working on vehicles. I usually just twist and pull on the boots till they come off and not worry about damaging them because they should get replaced anyway the new plug wires have a antiseize lubricant to keep from this happening in the future

How do you remove ignition key from 2001 -pontiac grande prix


Look on the underneath of the steering column and directly under the ignition switch you will see a round plastic molded plug, pry that out with a small screw driver (it comes out easily and you will NOT hurt anything).
Leave out the plastic plug then after driving the car all you have to do is shut off the ignition, tilt the steering column up (just like you do when you exit the car), then you take your right hand and put it at the bottom right of the column, right at the swivel point, there is a small access opening about 2 X 2 inches, you put your index and middle finger in there and flip the index finger upwards and your finger nail will go right up and touch against the the button switch, you push it with your fingernail (you wont hurt anything, button moves easy and it only presses in about 1/16' of an inch), then you can take fingers out of the access hole and then you can turn the ignition key the rest of the way off and remove it...I've did this for two years with my Grand Prix (I can't see paying $300 for a new solenoid and take the chance of it happening again)...some online sites show people removing the plug and putting the screw driver in the plug hole and pressing switch button up but after I saw the square access hole in mine I just started using my finger...oh and you won't even get your hands dirty doing this.

I left for work this morning and everything seemed to be fine, I arrived at work and my '02 grand prix gt would not shift into park. It will shift into any other gear except park. My car is in the...


you should be able to pull key out in neutral. It sounds like a brake pedal issue not making contact with switch for shifter. Happens a lot actually. Until you can get serviced do it like a manual for now and as I stated you should be able to pull keys out. Its a button behind brake pedal. Try pusing it but leave car in park. Its usually a green and black switch. Leave car e brake on though. Safety reasons. Hope this helps

2002 Pontiac Grand prix wont start; unable to remove key


On many cars, if the battery is dead, it locks the key in the ignition. Put a battery charger on the car or replace the battery and give it a shot.

Good luck.

02 pontiac grand prix headbulb replacement


1. Pop your hood. 2. Get a 10mm socket (if i remember correctly), or wrench and take out the 2 bolts that hold the assembly in. 3. Pull your assembly straight out, if you can't get it out, remove the philips screw that holds in the marker light in. 4. Back of the headlight housing twist the black pastic ring to the left to loosen it, then pull your bulb out and unclip it from the harness. 5. Do everything backwards, and be careful not to touch the glass on the bulb! Otherwise you will be doing this again after a couple of days.

Ignition Key Lock solenoid not working


The closed park position switch within the automatic transaxle supplies voltage to the steering electric park lock. The energized electric park lock pulls the mechanical lock in the ignition key cylinder away from the cylinder. The ignition key can then be turned to the LOCK position. The key can then be taken out of the cylinder.

I have 11.53v on the power side and ground side to battery has 11 ohms ? do a voltage drop test on the ground side not ohms . Do you know what voltage drop is ? Learn the right testing procedure , you could have broken wire strands inside the insulation , apply current an the circuit won't work correctly , but would show ok with ohm test's .
