column lock won't unlock

by leo
(Pleasanton, CA)

This morning I let 2002 C5 roll down the drive way before I put the key in the ignition. Then I put key in and I the "pull Key for 10 sec" message follow by the" service column lock" message. Now 8 hours later I still get the messages. The car will start but will only move a few feet before it stalls. I am really bummed. Any help????

Colum lock recall
by: Anonymous

Talk to the dealer there should be a recall for this problem. It involves removing the lock and bypassing the security system. Do that and you should be up and running again! Good luck! Let us all know what you find out!
