The entire steering column has to be disassembled to get down to the torx screw that holds the lock cylinder in place. You will need a few specialized tools to do work on that steering column.

What wires are connected to the ignition of a 1990 pontiac tempest


I assume you mean the ignition keyswitch. You'll have 12 Volt ignition power from the IGN fuse or fusible link. There will also be an ignition terminal and a starter solenoid terminal. If you have the GM key security system (with the little black and silver resistor embedded in the ignition key), there will be two more wires going to the engine computer for checking the resistor.
I don't have the wire identification for these, except an educated guess that the power and solenoid wires will probably be the largest ones, and the power wire is most likely red. The solenoid and ignition wires probably have different colored stripes on the insulation. The anti-theft key wires are functionally interchangeable, although they may share a one-way connector that plugs into the switch (they are probably also the smallest wires since they don't need to carry a lot of current).

My ignition won't lock. What will it cost for a new one?


The ignition lock cylinder or tumbler for a 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix should not cost you any more then $25 dollars at a part store such as Auto Zone or Advanced Auto. If you actually need a whole new ignition switch that could run you as much as $150. Keep in mind that the lock cylinder and the ignition switch are two different things. I hope this helps.

2003 remote control for 2005 van?


Transmitter Programming
If you lose a transmitter, program the old and new transmitter(s) into the remote control door lock receiver's memory. Up to 4 transmitters may be programmed.


Important
Once the remote control door lock receiver enters the programming/diagnostic mode, the programming of the first transmitter erases all previous transmitter programming information, requiring the programming of all transmitters.

Program only 1 vehicle remote control door lock receiver at a time. If more than 1 receiver is being programmed at the same time, it is possible that the same transmitter could be programmed to more than 1 remote control door lock receiver.


Perform the following steps in order to program the transmitter:

Remove the ignition key from the ignition lock cylinder.
Remove the BCM PRGRM fuse from the fuse panel. Refer to Fuse Block in Wiring Systems.
Close all of the doors.
Close the liftgate.
Turn the ignition lock cylinder to ACC.
Turn the ignition lock cylinder to OFF, and then back to ACC within 1 second.
Open and close any vehicle door. A chime will be heard when the system enters the BCM programming/diagnostic mode.

Important
After 7 seconds, a chime may be heard confirming successful synchronization. It is necessary to wait approximately 14 seconds for a second chime that will confirm successful programming.


Press and hold the transmitter LOCK and UNLOCK buttons simultaneously for 14 seconds.
Repeat the previous step on each additional transmitter to be programmed.
Remove the ignition key from the ignition lock cylinder.
Install the BCM PRGRM fuse back into the fuse panel. Refer to Fuse Block in Wiring Systems. IF THIS WAS HELPFUL,PLEASE RATE,THANK YOU

Ignition switch removal.


The switch body is threaded on the rear-of-dash side, and there is a large nut which threads on to tighten the switch to the dash. There may also or instead be a large C-clip, E-clip, or wavy spring clip which fits into a slot on the back of the switch. Some models (like my 68 Tempest) even had a press-in roll pin that had to be removed. My 65 Chevelle had the nut and the C-clip. Unplug the wiring connector first, and then on the floor on your back look under the dash to find it and remove it. You may have to remove the instrument panel bezel from the dash frame (several screws) in order to see/reach the back of the switch.
This is not one of the easiest interior electrical jobs to do, but they put it in, so it will come out, I always say.
