If you are talking about the key lock switch you need special tools to take the steering column apart and if the car has anti theft transponder key you cant change it and expect the car to start unless you have the computer to go with the key . dealer has to reprogram it. hope this helps with your question

2000 Pontiac grand prix ignition key won't turn off all the way and won't come out


Good chance your key is worn out. You may have to use more force to get it back and out turning the steering wheel at the same time. When you get it out, go to the dealer with your vehicle permit and have a new key cut. Don't get a key cut from your worn out key. I had the same problem with my 2000 grand prix. It might take some effort to get the key out and be careful not to break it off, but it will come out. Also try pushing the gear shift hard into park as the cable may be worn

Not really a job for a non-mechanic. Column covers off, switches out of the way, wiring disconnected, column dropped down under the dash, bolts chiseled out, big job.

My 2000 grand prix needs the key reprogramed. I lost the original key and now the new one wont program on its own.


Make sure you have the right type of ignition keys, there should be a stamp on the keys "PK3" which is the right ignition keys you need to have for your passlock system.

Auto Relearn:
Time required, approximately 10 minutes.

Insure that the battery is fully charged.
Turn the ignition switch from the OFF position to the CRANK position attempting to start the vehicle. The vehicle will start and then stall.
Leave the ignition switch in the ON position while observing the security indicator.
When the security indicator turns off, which can take up to 10 minutes, turn the ignition switch off. Wait 10 seconds.
The BCM and the PCM will learn the new code on the next start attempt.

You may have to get somebody with a scan tool to reset the computer codes to make this work.

Thank oyu for using fixya and good luck

I have a 2000 Pontiac grand prix GT. Last night i shut off my car and the key would not come out of the ignition. Any thoughts on what I could do to get my key out of their.


Two inches below where you put the key in the ignition is a small hole. I use an allen wrench push it gently into the hole and the key will turn all the way back so you can get the key out. The dealer wanted 4hundred for a new ignition switch. allen wrench $1

Diagram on a pontiac grand prix


I have 07 Pontiac Grand Prix, the wrong key was inserted into the ignition the other day. Now when I try to use the correct key it will not insert completly in the ignition, goes in until last 1/4in of key. Im stuck, I bought the new lock cylinder but how do I get the old one out? I cant get the key to insert all the way so I cant get it to the "On" position, it will not turn at all. The key that was inserted in error is whole and nothing is missing it seems like there is something stuck. Any help would be appreciated...
