It sounds like a problem with the ignition switch/column lock

On the steering column, directly under the ignition lock, look for a little round plastic plug. Remove it with a small screwdriver. Now take your screwdriver and stick it up in the hole you just uncovered. You'll feel a tang or lever type thing. Push up to release the ignition lock cylinder. You can now turn the lock cylinder the rest of the way and remove the key. If you have a console shift the problem is going to be in the console. There is a switch attached to the shifter. This switch rides back and forth with the shift lever. Over time the wires wear and break causing the problems you're having. HTH. -Jim

Under my gear shift, the console is labeled: P-N-D-D1-D2. I need to replace this part it has a melted hole. Where can I find this for a 2005 Cavilier
