Happened on G5 automatic and to release key there is an access hole underneath the steering column near the ignition switch and was able to manually push something to release key. gotta find a permanent fix!

Just encountered the same problem. Popped the clutch in first gear to kill the engine, but still cannot turn the car off.

Anyone have a clue as to why the ignition locked out?

Use a steering wheel puller to remove the snap ring that holds the big spring. Remove the screws that hold the signal light mechanism, and the signal light handle has to be removed. Lift the signal thing up to expose a "torx" headed screw. Remove that screw and the tumbler should pull out fairly easily. That torx screw should have an unthreaded part at the bottom of it. Make sure that comes with it. Sometimes they break off.

Where is the starter relay located on a 1987 5.7l trans am GTA? I do not have the VATS system.


Has no starter relay , When you turn the key to the start position B+ voltage goes from ignition switch through the park neutral switch to the S terminal on the starter . They didn't have VATS back then . I was working at Pontiac dealer in 1987 . automatic or manual trans . If manual then there is a clutch switch not Park neutral switch.

My engine light was on in my Pontiac G5 I was gone get checked but the next day my car doesn't turn on at all no light or nothing plus my keys are stuck


It sounds like your car battery is dead. If you connect another car as if you were going to jump-start your car - you ought to be able to remove the key - or crank the engine to start it.

You didn't include the year of your G5, so I don't know about recalls for it - as there seems to be one for the 2009 - linked below:

THESE VEHICLES FAIL TO COMPLY WITH FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLES SAFETY STANDARD 102, "TRANSMISSION SHIFT POSITION SEQUENCE, STARTER INTERLOCK, AND TRANSMISSION BRAKING EFFECT", AND FMVSS 114, "THEFT PROTECTION AND ROLLAWAY PREVENTION". ON SOME OF THESE VEHICLES, THE TRANSMISSION SHIFT CABLE ADJUSTMENT CLIP MAY NOT BE FULLY ENGAGED. IF THE CLIP IS NOT FULLY ENGAGED, THE SHIFT LEVER AND THE ACTUAL POSITION OF THE TRANSMISSION GEAR MAY NOT MATCH. WITH THIS CONDITION, THE DRIVE COULD MOVE THE SHIFTER TO "PARK" AND REMOVE THE IGNITION KEY, BUT THE TRANSMISSION GEAR MAY NOT BE IN "PARK".
If you are having a problem with your ignition switch, repost question with full details.

2009 Pontiac G5 won't shut off. Key will not turn.


The pontiac G5 has a defect on some of them that need a new ignition switch. I just had to get mine replaced because mine did the exact same thing. If you remove the fuse it will not fix the problem!
