Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Have you tried pulling on the steering wheel in both directions while turning key?

Pontiac Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

no there is a vats system that will prevent you from doing that, you should be able to get a new lock cyl and it will fix the issue, heres a video on that
