Question Asked: 

I took everything apart and all wires are good, fuses good. So I guess I'll have to get new ignition lock cylinder, but would the lock cylinder cause the problem w shifter nob not popping out all the way? I also noticed that my battery (positive) screw is stripped so I put a charger on it and noticed there is no charge on positive side. Would that cause all the problems?

My shifter nob isnt going in all the way I looked at all wires everything is connected fuses all good, have a code reader but cant read nothn cause I cant turn key. Can I just go by a new shifter, Will that solve some of my problems or calln a locksmith to drill out key lock and maybe he can unlock it?

Same problem in 04 impala if u take shifter apart look right under shifter bottom left hand side u should see a off white plastic piece, push it up and your key will release.
