Key stuck in ignition

The truck was having problems running. Then went to start with auto starter and wouldn't start. Tried to put key in ignition and start and now nothing happens and the key won't come out of ignition. Tried to reset neutral safety switch and can get it to go into neutral but still wont do anything and still can't get the key out. Please any help would be appreciated.

Under the steering column is an access plug. Remove the plug and insert a small shaft driver into the hole and push up gently, the key will release.

I had the same problem with my 97 bravada with the key not coming out of the ignition. Just underneath where the ignition key switch is on the steering column, there is a hole. Take a pencil oh say 6 inches long and push up into that hole and feel a spring loaded shaft, push up on the shaft, turn the key, take out the key.

I have 98 grand prix ignition is stuck in start had to pull fuel pump fuse but cant shut car off lights are still on


Suggest disconecting the battery. Then you can work on the problem. it is not clear if the issue is the key stuck in the start position in the iginition switch or if the starter motor is stuck (running) after the car starts. If it the starter motor is running... Time for a new starter. If it is the ignition switch, try
pushing the key in and turning back off. Still stuck? Try pulling pn the key and turning off. Either way, if it is the key, yime for a new ignition switch.

Usually means the starter solenoid is stuck. Could also be a short in the key switch.

Wont start


the clicking noise is usually 2 things, step on try jump starting car and if starts have battery tested as it is probably bad (free testing at most chain auto stores), the other usual problem is that the starter has gone bad, when whoever tried turning off car while driving might have put into start mode and burnt out the starter when it engaged at high speed.

I have towed several of these with same problem. Sounds like to me it needs to go back in for the ignition switch again. Unless it's not going into park. If it's not going into park it would be a shift linkage issue and needs to be adjusted. Chris J.C. Towing & Recovery

95 F150 wont crank


the starter should be replaced. The solenoid is kikcing the pinion out but there is no contact being made to turn the starter motor. I have the exact same truck and before i changed the starter used the old starter tap trick. Tap the starter casing with a hammer and it should start turning again. hope this was helpful for you. Good luck.
