Why would the ignition switch in a 1995 Pontiac Grand Prix sometimes lock up in the run or unlock position?

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

you need to be more specific. i am going to assume you want to know in what position is the ignition switch in lock. usually it is 2 positions back from "run" but it is in whichever position the key comes out of the ignition.

This may sound ridiculous... but force the the ignition switch until the detent "breaks" and you can turn the ignition switch without the key. The risk here is that you could possibly break the assembly that the ignition switch inserts into. If you can get the switch to rotate from the lock position one position clockwise, then you can release the switch from underneath the steering column and pull the switch out. The alternative is to have a locksmith get the ignition switch to rotate one position clockwise and then you can remove the switch and replace it with a new one from any auto parts store.

Turn your ignition switch to the auxiliary position, without starting the engine. Leave the ignition switch in the auxiliary position for 30 seconds.

I don't know how to change the ignition switch but I have some advice. Don't screw with the ignition switch, buy the whole steering column. It will be cheaper and easier to change.
