If yours car does have this kind of shifter, (see picture below), press the brake pedal and push on the left lateral button of the shifter knob for unlocking & move the stick shifter on "N" - neutral position!

The key will not turn in the ignition the steering wheel is not locked.


Is your key worn out? If it is have a new key made. If key is fine spray some lube into ignitio key cylinder. Use a nozzle to get as deep as possible into cylinder cavity. Then let lub sit for a couple of hours. After, insert key and pull up, down and to sides until it releases. If it does not release you will need to pull out cylinder and lub all tabs or just replace cylinder.

2001 Pontiac Bonneville won't shift out of park


Automatic Transmission Shift Lock Control System
The automatic transmission shift lock control system is a safety device that prevents an inadvertent shift out of PARK when the ignition is ON. The driver must press the brake pedal before moving the shift lever out of the PARK position. The system consists of the following components:
?€¢
The automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid


?€¢
The automatic transmission shift lock control switch


?€¢
The brake to shift relay


?€¢
The rear integration module (RIM)

With the ignition in the ON position, battery positive voltage is supplied to the brake to shift relay coil. When the RIM energizes the brake to shift relay, the brake to shift relay switch contacts close suppling battery voltage to the automatic transmission shift lock control switch. The circuit continues through the normally --closed switch to the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid. The permanently grounded solenoid is energized. This locks the shift linkage in the PARK position. When the driver presses the brake pedal, the contacts in the automatic transmission shift lock control switch open. This causes the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid to release. This allows the shift lever to move from the PARK position.

91 pontiac grand prix se key stuck in ignition


91 Grand Prix SE: If you can turn car off with the key, but can't get the key out - first thing you should check is to see if the button on the shifter is fully releasing (the button on the shift handle you have to push to shift out of Park).

Shift - interlock system problem .
Automatic Transmission Shift Lock Control System
The automatic transmission shift lock control system is a safety device that prevents an inadvertent shift out of PARK when the engine is running. The driver must press the brake pedal before moving the shift lever out of PARK position. The system consists of the following components:
• The automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid
• The automatic transmission park lock solenoid
• The automatic transmission shift lock control switch
• The transmission range switch
With the ignition in the ON position, battery voltage is supplied to the automatic transmission shift lock control switch. The circuit continues through the normally-closed switch to the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid. The transmission range switch provides a path to ground for the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid in the PARK position. With the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid energized the shift lever is mechanically locked in the PARK position. When the driver presses the brake pedal, the contacts in the automatic transmission shift lock control switch open, de-energizing the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid. This allows the shift lever to move from the PARK position. When the shift lever is out of the PARK position the controlled ground contacts in the transmission range switch open. This prevents the automatic transmission shift lock solenoid from energizing when the vehicle is out of the PARK position.

Floor Model Shift Lever will not Shift back into gear, '01 Grand Prix, Automatic, 6 cyl.


Foot on break is the obvious fix, when you press the break pedal you should hear a noise near the shifter which is the switch that releases the shifter, this switch is fused off the break-light fuse I think. Or there maybe weight on the transmission jamming it in park or in gear, is it parked on a hill?
