Hi. I am having a problem with my 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix. I was parking my car in the driveway yesterday. When I put the car in park and went to turn the key back to take the key out, it got stuck. I could not get it out. I tired everything from turning the wheel to see if the wheel had just locked up. I tried shifting the car into Neutral but it wouldn't even do that. None of my dash light or door light or accessories would not come on. So to get the key out I went under the wheel and released the lock manually. So I figure okay ill try and crank it up again so I stuck the key in and tried to crank it up again and got nothing no power in the car. I talked to a couple of people that I know personally that knows about cars and they said that it was probably my Ignition key lock switch got lock and the tumblers are out of sync. So it doesn't know that the key is out of the ignition and probably is stuck in that sweet spot where the car doesn't recognize that is needs to give power. I also was told that if the if the ignition lock switch is screwed up then it would cause the car to lose all power. I think it is stuck between the Off switch and the switch that turns on your dash lights. So that probably would be the dead spot? I know my battery is not dead. If you have any suggestions on what could be going on please let me know.
have the same problem?
