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 in a 2004 Pontiac grand am can be installed by first Sliding out old lock cylinder and then Press the small release tab While turning the key to the ON Position.
its an ignition fuse, i had the same prob with mine
How is the ignition key switch replaced on the 2000 Pontiac Sunfire? And after replacing the switch would I have to have it Towed to the Pontiac Dealer in order to have the car key programed to the Computer?
You need to go to the dealer and order a new key. A few locksmiths can do it for you also. The problem is the chip in the key has to be coded withe your VIN # to do this. Be prepared for up to $45 to$60,
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.
yes Any locksmith can make an ignition key it's cost me $150 for both ignition and door key in the past. I wouldn't think the dealer could do it cheaper but they might.
take it to a dealership and have them hook it to the computer. it's the only way I know of.
the ign switch or the key & tumbler ???
The door/trunk key costs a few dollars. The ignition key, which must be programmed, costs around $50.
