HOW DO I REPLACE THE IGNITION LOCK CYLINDER ON A '99 SLS, CANNOT TURN THE KEY.

1999 Cadillac Seville • 15,000 miles

I have the radio and heater removed, two screws on the radio side removed, electrical connectors removed, I can release the lock tab for the park/lock cable but can't seem to push it back far enough to remove it from the housing, also not sure how to remove ignition bezel and light ring

The ignition switch is in the dash not the steering colum.

Which one are you trying to replace? Is it the ignition switch or the ignition cylinder lock?

The one in the dash the key goes into.

I don't know how to attach photos, if there's a number I can message them to I'd like for you to see them so you can see I'm not crazy.
