Pressure on the side of the tires from the curb caused the steering wheel lock to not release. Wrestling the steering wheel got the tension off the wheel and allowed the key to turn. Problem solved

How can I get key out which is stuck in ignition of 2008 cobalt. It also won't start

This can happen if the battery is low / dead. To solve, connect a set of jumper cables between the battery in the Cobalt and a running car's battery. Shut off the running car. In the Cobalt, make sure all accessories (lights, radio, fan, etc.) are off. Step on the brake, then move the gear shifter fully into the PARK position. Next, either attempt to start the engine, or turn the key to the OFF position and remove it from the ignition.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Clicking sound but engine won't start

This actually does sound like the battery is low on charge. A battery which is quite low on charge will still light the headlights and run many other electrical accessories, but will not engage the starter (which requires much more power than other accessories).
I would start by making sure that an electrical device, such as interior lights, glove box lights, trunk light or something else has not been left on. Then carefully jump start the engine. It is also possible that the battery might need to be replaced for not holding a charge.

Stuck eldorado key in DTS ignition now car won't start

Make sure your steering wheel isn't locked. Sometimes a key won't turn until you jiggle the wheel while trying to turn the key.

My plymouth breeze won't start, won't make a sound, but my lights and horn still works , help me.

any real answer yet? did the problem ever get resolved? i have the same problem with my sister's car. too cold to diagnose tonight, but will post the solution probably tomorrow. since the lights and heater works, but ignition and radio arent getting power, my first guess is there's probably a fried fusible link which controls the 2nd accessory power to the ignition switch. will post a solution soon.

Changed my car battery on my 99 Avenger and the horn goes off and car won't start.

It sounds like you have an alarm system that is disabling the ignition. You need to reset the alarm system.

I have a 97 Bravada that won't start. When I turn the key on the radio and other accessories turn on but the dash never turns on and the truck won't start. It turns over just fine. I checked the...

Yes, it is electrical alright. But probably not due to the fuel pump, I would bet the pump won't turn on as long as the dash won't, cause the ignition system is not on. It's probably either a blown fuse for the ignition or a bad ignition switch. So check all your underhood fuses.
