all the fuses are good. There is a little hole in the cover under the switch. I can put a little screw driver in that hole and when I hit the right spot it will allow the switch to turn off.

    Sounds like you may have a defective lock cylinder. There may be a PATS module or anti theft device on your vehicle and you may end up with programing issues when changing the cylinder. You may also want to contact a General Motors dealership. Your vehicle may still be under warranty or there may have been recalls on this particular problem. Good luck
