You will need to remove the steering wheel and replace the ignition lock mechanism from inside. Unfortunately, with an air bag assembly, it is recommended that you take your vehicle to a trained technician so that the airbag doesn't deploy accidentally while you are working on it. The force can cause serious injury.

No, not if it is not defective. If the ignition switch is defective then that is all you need to replace.

I got a friend whose key can't turn the ignition on her 2000 Pontiac Grand Am. She can't get the steering wheel to unlock either.

The ignition switch is immediately behind and attached to the ignition lock cylinder. The ignition lock cylinder is where you place the key to start your vehicle. If you are haveing problems with your vehicle not starting and or turning the key, more than likely you need to replace the ignition lock cylinder. It is common for these to go bad in GM vehicles.

The ignition coil packs have the cylinder numbers listed on them. The cylinder closest to front of engine (where serpentine belt is) is cylinder #1, the odd cylinders are on this side of engine. Cylinders are in order from front of engine, ignition coil wires display their positions of which cylinder they belong to.

Sounds like a 2.3 quad 4 motor. There is a "panel" on the top of the motor, called a housing cover. It has the ignition module and ignition coils under it. Below them are boots (replace them) and the plugs.
