I had the same problem but i realized that it was just a safety mechanism. Just turn the steering wheel and hold it while you turn the key. try it and i hope this solves your problem. good luck.

Blog for know defects on your van, I don't have a year so I can't check it for you. I will tell you that the ignition lock cylinder will have to be replaced, at some point it is going to stick and leave you stranded.

I have to do this to my car sometimes to get key out hope it works for you.

Sometimes after I put my 2000 Buick Regal LS in Park and turn off the engine the ignition switch not the key gets stuck in the on and acc position. What causes this to happen?


Replace ignition switch (the tumbler portion) seems like its hanging up, and you shouldn't be able to remove the keys unless the switch is off.The park safety switch possibly. This switch tells the vehicle its in Park. Hope this helps.

1991 Lexus LS 400 ignition locked doesn't turn past ACC


First things first, if you can not turn the key lock past ACC you are not doing anything with the starter. The problem with the lock must be in the lock or the linkage connected to it.
The price for the starter may be fair depending on where it is coming from.
You have to be able to turn the key to the start position before anything happens with the starter.

Ignition switch will not turn on. Battery is good. Steering wheel is locked, What should we do?


Quite often that will happen when vehicle parked with wheels turned, and/or vehicle on a slope, so try to avoid that in future.If nothing else, when parked on a slope, stop, keep foot on brake pedal, apply parking brake, put transmission in neutral, then take foot off brake pedal and wait for parking brake to stop vehicle rolling, then shift it into park. When leaving, put foot on brake pedal, shift to drive or reverse whatever direction your going, then release parking brake. Sounds like a lot to remember but you won't have to pull hard on shifter as before, and it could save a lot of money on transmission repairs down the road. Always try to park with wheels straight as well.
Now, with that said, if you parked with wheels turned, try hard to turn steering wheel in same direction wheels are turning, just slightly, as you try to turn key. Sometimes a quick yank in that direction will do it. Also make sure shifter is all the way in park before you try it. If your on a slope try rocking vehicle slightly up slope as you push/pull shift lever in to park and try to turn key at same time. If no luck, try pushing brake pedal real hard and try to turn key. Let me know how it goes.

It will not shift out of park no matter what I


Turn ignition key one click>put car in neutral>start engine>put in drive. Chances are that you've experienced ignition issues before this happened. I was told that it's not uncommon for the '95 T-bird since the ignition is ****

The steering column did not lock, the car is in


1. Make sure the car is fully in PARK.

2. Put the key into the ignition and turn the wheel each way while trying to turn the key.

This can happen when there is pressure on the wheels, like when you park with your tires turned to one side.

Unable to remove key from ignition


On another web site a lady said she carried a small rigid wire and inserted it in a small hole around ignition to release key

Ignition is locked


The wheel may be locked. Steer with a bit of pressure to either side then try to turn the key - this can easily happens if you park on a slope without parking brake applied. Another thing you may want to try is to shift out of Park then back to it or put it in Neutral. Good luck!
