• when you try to take the key out push on the brake peddle and move the shifter around in park while trying to take the key out. it sounds like you are going to need a new ignition. had that same problem on a 1996 pontiac sunfire and i had to replace the ignition
  • I've seen some of these, and looked at a 97 grand am where the shifter wasn't activating the ignition release to allow the key to go off all the way. if the 96 is like the 97 you can take the lower cover off the column and you will see a small cylinder, about the size of a 3/8 rod push the bottom and see if the key will go off. ignition switch lock and tumbler is very expensive, try the easy first.
