To remove key (lock position), the transmission needs to be in PARK.

To start (engine crank), the transmission must be either in PARK or NEUTRAL.

Try apply parking break, put transmission in neutral and turn ignition key. If engine does not crank, turn and hold key in start position then move transmission selector to see if there is a transmission select position where it does crank.

SOURCE: Key will not turn in the ignition 2003 Monte Carlo SS

Be sure its all the way in park or try neutral.Its possible that security system does not recognize the key. Is security light flashing or on steady? Shut all doors and windows,trunk,hood, turn off all accessory's,roll down drivers window, turn key off and remove for at least 1 minute, insert key into ignition, try to start leaving key to run position for 20 minutes, turn key to off,wait 15 seconds, try to start again leaving key to run, wait 20 minutes, turn key off,wait 15 seconds, try to start, This should relearn key code. It may relearn after 1 learn cycle and start if system is ok. Hope this helps and that the weather is dry and warm for this procedure!.. i think this may solve ur problem..

thank u rate me!!!

sounds like your passlock sensor on the ignition barrel is faulty. you will have to go to the dealer to have it replaced because of the programming after replacement.

SOURCE: 2006 Monte Carlo

Here's how to override the shift lock on a 2006 Monte Carlo. First, remove the top of the shift console by pulling up on the plastic piece directly in front of the hinged cover. This is the piece that has the cup holders molded into it and it is held in place by 4 clips (i.e. it will pop back into place with no tools).

Next, shine a flashlight down into the console to the right of where the shift lever passes through (passenger's side). You'll see a wiring clip with 4 or 5 wires going into it. Directly behind this clip you can see a metal shaft with a flared top that looks like a button. This is the shift lock override button. Reach in behind the wiring clip with your right hand and press this button in. With the engine running, hold the button in with your right hand, press on the brake, and shift out of park with your left hand.

Now you can drive the car to your mechanic (or to your own garage) to find out why the shift lock solenoid is not working. On mine it was obvious. A wire going into that clip near the override button came loose and there was no power to the shift lock solenoid. I removed the clip, reattached the wire, and replaced the clip. Problem solved, fixed for free!

There should be a decal on the bottom side of your hood, or somewhere in the engine compartment. If there isn't just put it on the crankshaft (bottom pulley) and go ribs to ribs, and flats to flats, and work your way around.

Security light came on last night while i was driving now my monte carlo wont start all the lights come on it just wont start


The SECURITY light is a common problem on GM cars. The key is not just a key, it also communicates with the ignition/lock cylinder, and then to the TDM (theft deterrent module) also known as the computer. When these parts dont communcate properly, the car thinks its being stolen and turns off the starter. The hard part is finding out which part is failing. Mechanics can use this to their advantage and change everything, running up a large bill. I have found that bypassing the system is the most cost effective method and you also never have to worry about the problem EVER again. Ive bypassed dozens of GM vehicles, and never had any issues after that. Here is a link that explains the problem and offers some solutions.

Got a 2006 Monte Carlo 3.5....I went out to start it and it is just completely dead. The keychain for the lock/trunk etc won't even get a response?


Sounds like dead battery check battery voltage with a multimeter it should read between 12-12.6 volts anything less than 12 volts you'll need a new battery.

Car wont start. security light on.


I had this same problem with my 2002 Monte. It is a very cheap fix about $100(If you do not got to the dealer $800) The car thinks that you are trying to steal it so you have to turn the key in the on position until the security light goes off and when the light goes off dont try to start it. Turn the key to the off position and then try to start it. It should take about ten minutes. I know its frustrating cuz I've been there.
