I went to circuit city to have them install a new cd player...once he installed it my car seemed to have locked up. The ignition wont turn and the gear wont move...is that an anti theft issue or something else?

If the ignition wont lock in place,just redo it but this time you need to realize that you install the key cylinder with the key in the ON postion,straight into the lock cylinder housing,aligning the retaining tabs,on the key cylinder with the hole in the lock cylinder housing.Then turn the key to the off position,

in the 1996 sunfire GM uses an anti theft lock system. It can be triggered by all sorts of things. In order to relinquish this you must have a key to turn the ignition. These are not coded just plain cut keys. Once you attain this you put the key in and turn the ignition to the ACC position and wait ten minutes (theft lock light will turn off), turn off and take key out. You MUST do this 3 times and then the theft lock will be disarmed.
