is there a way to remove the ignition switch without using the keys???

I have a 2005 gto and my ignition won't turn at all and I hope there's a way to remove it without the key in the on position. I also got my new switch with cylinder in today but the whole thing is disassembled springs and all! can someone please help?!

have you tried to rock you steering wheel back and forth while rotating the ignition?

There's an updated housing that fixes this issue. you don't need to replace your ignition tumbler just the housing it goes into. I believe its about a $30.00 dollar part. Mine was doing the same thing last summer. There's some detailed installation instructions on here somewhere.

Hers the GM part number for the updated housing

92234035

A fix may work as well as getting the part. I had a friend that had 2 replaced by a dealer with the "improved" part.

My new one was tight and wouldnt turn correct, so I fixed the old one. As far as getting the key to turn, shoot some canned air in upside down. Cooling everything seems to help.
