I put the key in the car to a on position to roll up windows however after I rolled the windows up I didn't turn it to off and and remove the key and left for about three hours when I came back to start it...


No ---by leaving the key in the "on/run" position you have effectively left the ignition on and that has flattened the battery and possibly burnt out the coil/s and ignition module. Have the battery recharged and reset the CPU using a code reader and go from there . If you have no spark run the fault codes and if it says coil/s and or ignition module then you know what has happened

Key won't turn


hi there,

Your car has a steering lock that clicks into place when you take the car key out of the ignition. This prevents thieves from being able to steer your car if they hotwire it. Sometimes the wheel is turned to just the right place to keep your key from being able to disengage that steering wheel lock. All you have to do is turn the wheel a little bit in either direction while you turn they key. and your done!

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!

I have a 96 audi a6 and the key is now stuck in the ignition. Car starts and runs but the key will not come out. Just happened out of the blue...


I would try WD-40, spraying down beside the key with a spray nozzle on the end before I took it to a repair shop or pulled the steering wheel.

1998 Disco-Unable to remove key from ignition.


If disco is automatic move the transfer lever from high to low box and back again firmly then the key will come out there is a safety feature on the autos to prevent the key being removed if the transfer box is not in either high or low correctly with most dicso;s the transfer shift lever is stiff. through lack of use .once it is pushed in properly the key will release it works every time and I have had four v8 autos
basically you cant remove the key because even though the gearbox is in park if the transfer gears are not fully home the park sensor on the gearbox thinks it is out of gear eg not in park so wont let you remove the key and leave the car out of gear in case it rolls away .Dan

Light warning buzzer constantly on


Have you checked that the headlight switch is in the right position? Are the headlights or parking lights still on when the key is removed?

If so, then rotate the lamp switch to the correct position and the buzzer will go off. Headlights and parking lights are not controlled through the key circuits.

Trouble Starting Car


I just recently was troubled with the same problem it can only be fixed by changing the ignition switch. you have to get the key and switch together (dealer only) any GM dealer will be able to help with that then remover the steering wheel and get to work or pay a mechanic to do that for you but it will solve the problem you see there is a small white wire that came apart sucks but that's what happened .
