1997 pontiac grand am antitheft device

i cannot start my car. it appears that the ignition or steering column is locked and will not release. does this have to do with antitheft device, keypad or both. please advise

The fist issue is you can’t turn your key, everyone knows about rocking the steering wheel at the same time turning the key don’t they?

There is a part for your steering column called a “rack kit” it is part of what locks your steering column.

GM steering column (espically with the addition of air bags) while not impossible for the DIY is best for a mechanic.
