ignition not turning

Asked by Sep 03, 2012 at 12:31 PM about the 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix GT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

After being unable to bring the key back to the lock position I pushed on the solenoid on the under-side of the steering column and was able to bring it all the way back.  But now I cannot move the key out of the lock position even after pushing on the solenoid again. Any ideas on what it is and how to get it to turn back?

had that problem.....when It would happen I would have to sit for about 30 to 60 sec and then the key would be release...it had something to do with the relay and also then I would make turn my wheel all the way to the right or left......I would have to make sure the tires are not turned when I park.
