Try jiggling it around up, down side to side all over. Your trying to free up the tumblers one could be stuck or key is starting to round and not pushing it up high enough. Or in the case of my 93 saturn sl1 it wasnt the key or lock. It was the pin behind that turns a slot in a electrical box on the otherside of the ignition. I removed the whole unit and now start it with any thing that fits in the little black box(untill i can get a day off where it isnt raining to go to the scrap yard).

88 gran prix won't stay running


When replacing an engine, the possibilities are endless. One unhooked wire somewhere could make the difference. But besides that, here are a couple things to consider:Your catalytic convertor could be all clogged up and fouling out he system with too much back pressure.
Also check your amperage readings because if your alternator is shot, you're running off straight battery power, which doesn't get you far.

Can't remove key from ignition,it's an 02 grand prix, everything works right just can't pull out the key


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
