the whining noise you are experiencing are coming from under the bonnet and you need to have the belt serviced. look for any oil leaks and correct them first. if not inspect the condition of the belt and and whether or not you can read it normally. if not it should be turned around. sounds absolutely crazy i know. it has worked for me for about 10 years. it could be just worn and excessively glazed and cracked. simple fix bloke. cheers.

have you tried giving it a hard ****? some models (i know from experience) you put your key in, depress the brake and give the steering wheel a hard **** to unlock. hey, it won't cost to try.

the first thing to do is to make sure the steering is not binding up,like a balljoint or tierod , un hook the tierods and feel the turn of the wheel at the wheel not the steering wheel, make sure its not thight do the same on the other side,also take a good look at the shaft going to steering gear,ive found that the ujoints rust up and bind,causes wheel not to return, it could also be a leaking rack internally,start there, good luck.

Testimonial: "Very Helpfull"
SOURCE: 2002 Pontiac Grand Am key
Ok the most common problem with this situation is the tumblers in the lock came apart. you will ned to either replace the lock or have a repair shop replace it. The parts are not all that expensive, but the job is a bit dificult for a beginner. Cause?? well use is one cause if the car has a ton of miles on it and the ignition switch has be used a lot that could have caused the tumblers to fail. another common reason is a heavy key chain pulling down on the lock cylinder. The third cause is... it just happened. I have seen brand new cars with less than 3k miles on them come in with the same problem.
Ok to swum it up.. replace the lock cylinder, dealer or a lock smith can key it the same as your curent key. you can most likly purchase the parts from NAPA or other parts houses. You will need to gather a detailed instructions if you plan to do it yourself as there is not enough room or time to spell out the entire procedure here. If you do not have the tools and dont think you will do a few more of these repairs then it is most likly less expensive to have a reputable repair shop do the work. Good luck
