Wiggle the steering while you try pull out the key as the steering lock often pinches the key mechanism. If that does not help, the key and lock mechanism could be worn (often from too heavy a bunch of keys in the lock) and the lock will have to be replaced before it stops working completely.

Starts and dies unless I rev it up then it will Idle

The battery might be low but I doubt it is causing the "no idle" problem.
You should have an idle air control valve that the computer uses to adjust idle speed. That valve could be faulty or dirty.
Is the check engine light on when the engine is running ?

I am trying to pull the steering wheel column off to change the key cylinder for a new key in a 1999 Pontiac Bonneville, but I am having some trouble. I have taken the air bag off and the steering wheel...

You need the proper tool. A steering wheel puller will remove it with ease. It has a center shaft to push on the column and bolts to the wheel itself. When you turn the center shaft it pulls the wheel right off. Try to remove a steering wheel without a puller can damage the column.

How to replace the turn signal / high beam switch in the steering column

Once you take off the cover, its pretty easy. To get the lower cover off I think the ign key cylinder has to come out. To get this out, insert the ign key, and find the small hole in the lower cover, now put in a small rod ( a coat hanger wire will work) and find the small hole with a pin in the lock housing ( its about 2 inches from where the key goes in). now turn the key on and you will feel the pin depress and now the cylinder will pull out. Lube the cylinder while its out, I use "lock ease" graphite fluid.

Key stuck in ignition

Hi I am vortash I had this once and it was the same vehicle I cut a thin piece of plastic from an old credit card just slightly thinner than the key and applied some superglue to it onl a very tiny amount in the middle of the plastic I applied it with a pin so not to put too much on .. I then eased it into the keyhole next to the key waited 5 minutes for the glue to dry and managed to gently pull it out but if you dont fancy that idea I have also seen it done by drilling a vey small hole in the top of the broken Key with a Dremel and a fine drill bit and a small allen key with loctite on it pushed and tapped into the hole .. that worked also .. hope this helps Regards Vortash

Locked keys inside of 2000 dodge intrepid

If you have the master key,put it in the drivers door and turn anti-clockwise.If you cannot turn the key by hand,then apply some pliers to the key and ease the key to unlock.
If this does not work,place some padding below the key entry on the drivers door and hit one sharp blow with a rubber hammer or similar and the system should open the central locking system.
