Did you change the lock cylinder ? You need to put the passlock?"¢ sensor out of your old steering column into the replacement one. Is the security light lit in the instrument cluster ?
The design of the passlock?"¢ system is to prevent the vehicle operation if the proper ignition key is not used in order to start the vehicle. The mechanical key, in normal operation, will turn the ignition lock cylinder. The passlock?"¢ sensor monitoring the position of the lock cylinder will relay the passlock?"¢ data to the body control module (BCM). The BCM will determine the validity of the passlock?"¢ data. The BCM will send a password to the vehicle/powertrain control module (VCM/PCM). When the VCM/PCM receives the correct password the VCM/PCM allows the fuel injectors to operate normally. The passlock?"¢ system requires the VCM/PCM and the BCM to communicate the various functions in order to operate. These functions transmit over the class 2 serial data line CKT 1807. For an explanation of the class 2 serial data operation refer to Data Link Communications Circuit Description in Data Link Communications

2000 JGC have to wingle key to crank motor.

Ed,the switch actuator on the lower part of the stearing column may be going bad. It attaches to a rod that runs from the key switch.To replace it you have to remove the lower dash panel and drop the stearing column down. It will be on top of the column. Take the wires loose from it and remove the unit.It sounds a little complicated, but it's really not. Good luck!
