Pontiac Grand Prix GTP Ignition Key Stuck Due to Failed Shifter
Pontiac Grand Prix GTP Problem
Average Mileage: 116,128 mi (65,000 mi - 153,000 mi)
Key is stuck! I was replacing weatherstripping around the sunroof after finding it in bad shape. I started with cleaning out the drains as my trunk flooded due to a blockage. When all work was done, I could not get my key out!
There is a button under the sterring coluum. Some people use a small philips head or hole punch to push the button in order to release the key. I reach my hand under the lower plastic cover to reach the button. It lasted for a month. The GTP sat for a month and now I have no problem with the key?

Try removing the key and stuck will not come out, two options either make sure the button under dash is pushed in which will allow the key to remove. or take out instrument panel cover over shifter off and fix wires going into the connector.
