2002 2.2L engin 4 cylinder Pontiac grand am steering wheel don't lock after driving car. in park position and remove the keys. Steering wheel moves freely?? It's it the ignition switch going bad??


The ignition lock includes the steering wheel lock. It's possible that it just needs lubrication, or that the lock part has broken. In either case, taking the covers off the steering column sounds like your next move.

I have a 2000 Pontiac grand am Se and just recently put my key in n it doesn't turn have to jiggle it until it turns on to start what does this mean


The key or lock cylinder parts are worn out. You either need to get a new key cut from a GOOD master key, or have the ignition switch replaced.

Don't panic. It is in a bind. Try to turn the wheel as your turn the key. Jiggle it...it should free up.

Shake the steering wheel left and right while attempting to turn the key. Pressure on the steering column can cause the key to bind up at the lock cylinder.

Grand prix steering wheel locked key comes out


This situation is called "Torque Lock". The Solution is simply to Turn the Steering Wheel Slightly in the Opposite Direction to remove Pressure on the Steering Lock Pawl. Usually this occurs when turning off the Key while Pressure is Applied to the Steering Wheel from a slight "Roll-Back" or from the Power Steering being forced all the way to it's limit in one direction or the other. Always be sure that the Steering is allowed to relax prior to switching the Ignition Switch to the Locked Position. This is a very common problem most frequently experienced by women rather than men. Let me know if this helps!

1996 pontiac grand am steering wheel is locked


Probably not. That's just the interlock between the ignition switch and the steering. **** the steering wheel very hard to one side or the other as you turn the key. It's more common than you might think and all car are guilty of it.

Key will not turn in 99 Grand Am Ignition


Try turning the steering wheel back and forth abruptly. If not, did you park on a slight incline? My experience has been that sometimes if a vehicle rolls back a little, it will lock it up.

There is a hole under the steering column right near the ignition switch, if the key gets stuck, stick a pen or something in the hole, you will feel the little lever move and you can remove the key.
