Is the shift lever on the column? Some times you have to aid it all the way up to park, or turn the steering wheel a little bit while turning the key to off or lock position.


Mine is in the floor. I've tried ALL THE WAY in park,foot on brake,turnng steering wheel.......nothing seems to work. Guy at auto parts store said to reset the security system. Can't find how to do that!


Take your car to a GM dealer. It's likely that there is a safety recall for the ignition switch.
