How do you get the key out of the ignition on a 1989 Grand Prix when the key will not come all the way back to the off position?

According to other sources I have found in researching this question on the web .. the problem is most likely the Shift Lever Assembly. From the MSN Site:"An occasional problem with this vehicle is the Shift Lever Assembly (Transmission Shift Lock Actuator), automatic transmission only, and the Ignition Lock Cylinder Assembly. A failure of the Shift Lever Assembly will prevent the Ignition Key from being removed from the Ignition Lock Cylinder. Failure of the Ignition Lock Cylinder may prevent he vehicle from starting. The cost to repair the Shift Lever Assembly is estimated at $73.00 for parts and $71.50 for labor. The cost to repair the Ignition Lock Cylinder is estimated tat $21.54 for parts and $39.00 for labor. All prices are estimated at $65.00 per flat rate hour and does not include diagnostic time and applicable taxes.

In the 1989 Grand Prix, the oxygen sensor is in the tail pipe. Look for a wire that is plugged into both the tail pipe and the undercarriage of the vehicle.

The Pontiac Grand Prix was produced from the years 1962 to 2008. The throttle position sensor in a 3.8 V6 Pontiac Grand Prix is located on the butterfly spindle of the throttle body.

Had the same problem with my Grand Prix, ended up that the ignition switch had to be replaced. Hope this helps.

Your ignition lock mechanism is worn/damaged (How much junk do you have on that key ring, Bub?). It needs to be replaced.
