Could be junk, (coins, pens, ect.) fell into consol causing it to jam. If not check for loose bracket on the trans or bad cable. Have someone watch trans lever while moving shifter, if not same amount suspect cable.

Key stuck in the ignitin of a 2005 grand prix


Check to be sure your shift lever is all the way in the Park position. Move it up and down several times to be sure. If that doesn't work shift into neutral then move steering wheel side-to-side to be sure it isn't locked under tension. Place shifter back into Park position. If that doesn't work check all your fuses. There is a small safety switch located under the shifter boot. It is there to prevent the car from starting when not in Park. A blown fuse can cause it to stop working. If all else fails, remove boot and manually press this switch. If key comes out then that's your problem. Good luck.

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.

Ignition key stuck in 2003 Grand Prix


If you have an auto trans, check to make sure the car is in park. If the shift lever is even slightly misaligned, (even though the indicator says PARK) your key won't come out.
Try spraying the tumbler with powdered graphite.
It is a common problem, and I found two possible answers. The ignition plunger in the ignition switch or the Park release solenoid located in the center console. I've heard that when the solenoid sticks it prevents your key from being released. I have not fixed mine yet, I just use the inside of a ball point pen to release the plunger by sticking it in the access hole under the ignition.

My Backup light are not working on my 98 Pontica Grand Prix.


First check for power at the light sockets and make sure they are properly grounded. The neutral start switch should also be the backup light switch (located on the transmission at the shift lever). If vehicle is starting in the correct shift positions, likely it is adjusted properly. However, have someone watch the backup lights and move shift lever through the gears. if while moving lever lights flash, switch may be slightly out of adjustment. Pink or dark blue wire should be power supply to switch, light green should send power to lights.This is powered by a 15a fuse on the fuse panel.

Key won't come out of the ignition.


yes, there is a shiftlock sensor, so you can only take the key out when in park.
Getting at it requires removal of the center console.
When you have it in park - give it a little tap forward before turning off the vehicle.
