The ignition gets stuck and it's hard to get it out. Takes about 20 min to get it out sometimes just leave it in the car. I live in phoenix and it's hot out here my mother is yelling at me sorry. So please can you do something to help me. Also the part is like 100.oo dollars and my mom is on a fixed income thank you.

While driving my 2000 Buick Regal I turned on the turn signal and the instrument panel lights flashed and the engine turned off. This resulted in lost of power steering and power brakes and I had to fight the car to the side of the road. This happened a total of three times.
