I had a similar problem with another vehicle. I got a pair of needle nose and pushed the key in and turned to the lock position. do NOT place too much force. you may break the key.my vehicle has a little long button you press to make it go to the lock position. If yours does too. you need to push it or else it will not turn all the way to the lock position.kind of wiggle the key without too much force.

'94 GMC truck ignition stuck


Hi Jane, Your problem may be being caused by the bent key, but you may need to replace the ignition barrel and switch as it too may be defective. The barrel takes the key and at the working end (opposite side to where the key fits) is a rod which fits into the switch which turns the ignition on and off and operates the starter. I'm suspecting that it is either loose (the attachment screw may have become loose) worn or broken. Regards John

Ignition is stuck in run position


does your key stays in the ignition position? or can you turn it back to acc or lock? it might be a stuck ignition switch mechanism inside or a shorted circuit that latches the ignition...have it checked or you can try to open it the switch yourself..but with caution if this is your first time. Pls give me a feedback. thanks!

Ignition


i just had that same prob with mine. My Solution: NEW steering collum / key switch
what was happening was the key would get stuck in the igniton and i had to give it a little tap to get it to relese from the igniton. well, by giving it those taps, it popped a little plastic lever in the collum for the igniton switch. then the car would turn on with the key, but not turn off, i had to do the same thing that you had to do to to turn it off/on.

A steering collum later, and it was fixed
