Most likely the pot metal gear inside the column that the tumbler pushes on,column has to come apart(steering wheel removal,ect. You could make sure by watching the rod under the column that goes into the ign. switch,while you turn the key. Should be able to grab the rod with say small visegrips and push it farther,if it runs the starter ,it's the gear,if that all looks ok,ign. switch.

94 cutlass supreme died and wont start


See if you can jump start it and have it stay running. If you have gauges on the dash, check the Alternator gauge to make sure it's charging good. It doesn't take much juice to keep the radio going so don't assume the battery is good.

06 pontiac grand prix wont start no clicking when you turn the key over even jump starting the battery, has dash lights & radio & parking lights. battery tested good. put a used starter & altinator on


Used parts such as starters and altinators don't last. It might **** but it sounds like you need to buy a new starter,altinator, and battery. Or just start with buying one at a time.
