Question about 2004 Pontiac Aztek
Lots of owners have a problem with this. I have found several answers for people to try before going to the dealer and getting the answer I got which was," It's all gunked up under there- it'l be $768- can't really tell ya what it is."
Most popular answer #1 There is a small plug under the steering colloum, remove it, slide a small screwdriver up the hole to hit a button that will allow you to finish turning the key and pull it out. #2 Raise and lower the steering wheel all the way up and down a couple of times stopping at the lowest position- sometimes the key will turn and remove. #3 There have been reports of the huge wiring harness assembly located under the drivers side seat has either gotten wet/damp/wire loosened by backseat passengers foot/or a wire under the drivers side carpet leading to the harness is broken from being stepped on. #4 Check the fuses under the dash on drivers side #s 40, 42, 44 There has also been a recall on certain serial #s to replace the lock cylinder. And one report of an owner removing the prawl located on the colloum by the key cylinder. as always caution must be used when ever you open up a job. Extra caution here due to working in the area of the airbag- AFTER trying all the above, it is time to either live with it,(I can leave the key in the on position for an hour and a half), Come back an hour later and simply finish turning the key to the full off position- it will then remove, OR when you park it at nite, put it on a trickle charge. OR take it to the dealer who will attempt to replace the most expensive part first, then work his way down in the parts list until he finds something that works.
