I was the girl who couldnt get her key out of the ignition if the 2000 Isuzu. Well I got the darn thing out. There was a black cable that ran from the ignition to the Shifter, I jiggled it and my key was released. Hurray right? NOOO. I tried putting the key back in to turn the car on and now the key wont turn at all. So I am stranded. very very upset!

Re: key problem again
Back at it again right. Hey that black cable that you jiggled ( i like that work jiggle) must be the cause of your problem. Make sure that the cable is not loose or anything like that. I am most certain that is you check the cable you'll see the its loose. I really hope you finally get to drive your car without worrying about your key not wanting to come of the ignition. That sucks by the way. Let me know if this works Chelsea.

replace the whole ignition barrel with new key and get key programmed by dealer
can remove barrel and key by removing steering column covers turn ignition to on position and with small shank screw driver push in hole in outer top rear section of barrel assembly then pull out ignition lock barrel with key in it. fit new lock barrel and key, program new key into system and can get door lock barrels coded to suit new key or get code for old key and cut new key so it fits mechanical locks on the rest of the vehicle (just wont turn in ignition) 2 keys for vehicle.
sort of a solution. if you can get the ignition to turn to the off position there is a pin under it you can push and pull the whole thing out and start it with a screwdriver. or you can take out one screw from behind the ignition on the little black thing and you can start it with anything. i'm not sure if that will unlock the steering column though. hope this helps
Grandammit...Hey...replacing a lock cylinger requires recoded ignition keys, and a new lock cylinder requires dissassembly of the steering column. Not an easy fix, and I wonder if you are really the thief..you don't sound like a 9 month pregnant girl. Sorry......if I am wrong I am wrong. Drive it with a scredriver until you give birth then fix it.
