02 Grand Am won't start
Hi everyone. Here's my situation. My 02 Grand Am started having problems starting a few weeks ago. I found out that wiggling the key helped. I read that oiling the key could help so I did that and it started every time for about 3 days. Now it seems to be getting worse. I can hear the solenoid click, it has a new battery, all the lights are fine (no dimming) and this isn't a security light issue. I should mention the ignition cylinder seems loose but holding it when turning the key doesn't help. There is no grinding or whirring sound, in fact there is no sound at all other than the solenoid click. I'm just wondering why oiling the key worked for a few days but not any more. Thanks for reading this!
