Car ignition locking up on 1997 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP

    when you say the ignition is locking up, is it that the entire key-tumbler is turning back to the lock position, and shutting off the car?... If the car is still running, while the locking mechanism is actuated, then the issue is with just the locking pin, which can easily be remedied by removing the pin and leaving your steering un locked... but no one will ever know, because it is just assumed that evrey vehicle's steering is locked anyways. If this is an option to you, then I will show you how to remove the pin. Email me and let me know.
