Most commonly, The steering wheel is under tension when it was parked creating pressure on the mechanism that locks everything. Try turning the wheel in aternate directions one at a time while depressing brake and turning key, if this does not work get back to me...MK

How do you unlock a igniiton on a 1998 pontiact sunfire


its possible that you need to try and turn the steering wheel left and right (IT WILL TAKE SOME EFFORT) while trying to turn the key. and you dont need to put pressure on the key , turn it same as you would when starting it normally. you dont want to break the key off.also try and put the gear shift lever up into park at the same time( thats asuming its a automatic with shift lever on the steering colum) somtimes you can get the car to close to a curb or somthing and having pressure on the tires in a less than straight position will get you locked in on the sterring wheel,shift lever and key lock possition . so with one hand pull the steering wheel left with as much pressure as you can and at same time trying to turn key with your right hand.

Resseting alarm lockout in 2001 Pontiac Sunfire


turning left and stalling sounds like your power steering pressure switch is bad.as for other problem try unlocking drivers door using the key this should reset the factory alarm. also make sure you didn't miss a wire when reconnecting bat. look for 12gauge red wire near bat. this goes to computer if not connected car will crank but not start.
