It sounds like the ignition lock cylinder has failed on your 2000 Pontiac Grand Am. The ignition switch will need to be removed to replace the lock cylinder. If the cylinder cannot be removed the ignition switch may need to be replaced also.
mine has a switch on the brake pedal that releases the trans you have to press down the brake pedal to get it out of park this switch can go bad mine did on newer models they tell me it could lock key and or the wheel
