Sounds like you have an ignition lock engaged. try turning the a little bit back and forth and wiggling the key. that should unlock the ignition

2005 Sierra ignition key will not turn


Your title is confusing between the 2 model years listed, but here's what I can suggest. Either way it sounds like a worn out ignition key cylinder that is just worn out. However, the '97 pickups have the steering wheel lock feature when the key is in the off position. You might want to try moving the steering wheel side to side and see if it is bound up on the locking mechanism. If it's a 2005 truck, that isn't the case and it is most likely a bad key cylinder

The list of possible causes includes the key, the lock cylinder, the steering wheel lock, and other things.
Have you tried another key ?

2002 gmc sierra won't start, security light came on


The security light is a visual indication that something in the car's antitheft system is failing. In most GM cars and trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists. From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM (Theft Deterrent Module). These 3 parts are in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, the car misinterperates this as an attempt at theft and goes into antitheft mode. The car thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is not getting that signal from YOUR specific key. This is why the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle. Remember too, the TDM controls the security light. Sometimes you can have ALL the symptoms and no lights.

Why won't my ignition key turn over and my steering wheel is locked in place at the sametime?


I'm assuming you mean your key wont turn in the ignition. first off check to make sure the car is in park. then what you gotta do is put in the key and put a little pressure as if turning but dont turn too hard, then even though the steering wheel is locked you will have to try to move it a little, if you parked with your tires turned then you will want to try to turn the wheel in the same direction, (even locked you should be able to move it about a half inch) you will have to turn the wheel hard but it should move enough to allow the key to turn, you may have to jiggle the key a little in the ignition but it should eventually turn, just remember not to try turning the key too hard, the extra force wont make it go but can cause the key to break. this tends to happen when you turn the car off andthe steering wheel gets locked if the wheels are turned hard in either direction. also if multiple attempts at this still dont work, try taking the key out and turning it over and trying again. Even though both sides of the key are identicle, because of wear on the key and the ignition, sometimes when the wheel locks the ignition, it will only turn if the key is put in a certain way. Hope this helps, good luck

Ignition key won't turn


Try turning the key while jerking the wheel left and right and depressing the brake pedal. If that won't work try another key.

How do i switch the key lock on the steering wheel on a 1993 gmc sierra


You have to remove the steering wheel, Lock plate and turn signal switch. Then remove the key buzzer connector and then the bolt holding in the cylinder. It isn't real hard work, but you will need a steering wheel puller and a lock plate puller.

KEY WILL NOT TURN WHEN INSERTED


Hotwire it :)

Just a little humor. My robotics teacher had this problem with his car. I don't know what he did but he had to open up the entire steering column and I believe realign the key hole. Is there anything stuck inside?
