The ignition lock cylinder control actuator's purpose is to prevent the ignition key from being turned to the OFF position when the transmission is in gear and the vehicle may still be moving. The column ignition lock system consists of a ignition lock cylinder control actuator , and a park position switch that is located in the A/T shift lock control switch.

GM has had some problems with this , If you have the console shifter there is a micro switch that when put into park a linkage pushes on this micro switch closing the circuit to ignition lock cylinder control actuator allowing you to remove your key ! These linkages fall out causing this problem ,an have electrical wiring problems as well ! I fixed a 2006 Chevy cobalt that had this same problem by getting a used shifter assembly at the auto salvage year ! cost $20.00 . There mite be a access hole under the bottom of the steering column with a release button up inside !

The ignitioe will not turn out of the off position, the steering column will not lock and transmission shifter depresser button presses but will not move out of park.


SOUND LIKE IGNITION SWITCH KEYLOCK CYLINDER BROKEN. IN WHICH YOU CANT GET CAR OUT OF PARK.THE KEY LOCK CYLINDER BY TURNING THE KEY.IT MOVES A GEAR AND RACK ASSEMBLY THAT IN TURN MOVES THE IGNITION SWITCH ACTUATOR ROD AND PLUNGER TO VARIOUS POSITIONS REQUIRED FOR PERFORMING IGNITION SWITCH FUNCTIONS. IF KEYLOCK BROKEN YOU WONT BEABLE TO TURN IGNITION KEY OR GET CAR OUT OF PARK.
