Having problems with your 2003 Chevrolet Malibu ?
Ignition switch locked up
\015 Ignition switch is locked up and wont start the car or release the transmission.... oh, what to do..........\015
We've tried turning the steering wheel, that has helped in the past but not this time. Will have my son and son in law take out the dash for me and just put in a new switch in. Thanks for your help
Try and turn the steering wheel at the same time to take off pressure. If it still wont turn call a locksmith we are usually cheaper than the dealership or if you a mechanically inclined let me know and I will try and tell you how to remove it but it is a lot of work dash will have to come out. Probably what happened is the retainer cover that holds in all the wafers has popped loose very common with gm new ignitions they were better off with the old system hope this helps you
