I had that same problem. There is a gear shift lock button to the right of the gear shifter that has to be pressed down before you can unlock the gear shifter and the key.

Key stuck


Hello. Your problem is in the area called Brake Transmission Shift Interlock (BTSI). The shifter assembly in the console has a switch-solenoid (shift interlock) that has to send a release signal to the key release solenoid in the steering column. Replacement of the shifter assembly or shift interlock solenoid normally resolves the problem. regards, Joe

I think that you must have been using a doblicate key to start the engine it cannot be you ignition cylinder or swithch.. while now you will need to get it open in order to take out the key ..

My key is stuck in ignition of my 1997 Pontiac Grandprix. How do I remove it?


Tilt the steering wheel all the way up. Reach inside the hole on the right side underneath the ignition. You will feel a metal button. Push it up, and you'll be able to turn the key all the way back and get it out. Mine does the same thing.
