What would cause the ignition to stick in accessory mode until a clicking sound is heard when turning the engine off on a 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix?
I had the exact same problem with my 2000 grand prix gt, you need to replace the gear box assembly.
Why do I hear a clicking noise when turning the key in the ignition then on the 3rd try the car does start?
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.
if you have been having intermittent power-accessory or dash light failure, and/or the car won't stay started (no idle), then yes, it can be your ignition switch module. when car won't idle, try turning and holding the key halfway between Start and On; if it then idles normally, it is definitely your ignition switch module. easy to replace.
How can I bypass the ignition key My Pontiac Montana key will not turn. I can put it in and out but it will not turn. I have been using the car for 10?
the ignition key will not turn if the steering wheel is locked in place. The steering wheel locks in place when it is turned with the ignition off. If the wheel is locked just try turning the wheel back and forth and turn the key at the same time, this will unlock the wheel, and allow the key to turn
