SOURCE: my key wont turn and the steerring lock is stuck on

The malibus grand ams and aleros all had the same problem. you are going to need to replace the ign cylinder. You may be able to turn the key by lightly taping the end of the key with a hammer and turning at the same time. If you do get it to turn go get a cylinder from the dealer replace the cylinder. You have to program the theft. When you replace the cylinder try to start the car and leave the key in the on postion untill the the theft light goes out and you shopuld be fine.

SOURCE: ignition tumbler locked up

try a spare key, or push key into lock while turning
it is the tip [pointy end] of the key that releases the switch tumbler lock allowing it to turn. keys & switches wear out, a 'heavy' key ring especially wears the switch.

SOURCE: key won't turn in ignition...should I replace the

Try rocking the steering wheel back and forth. Also even though the tumbler is the cause most of the time you should check the electrical part of the switch at times when it goes it won't allow the key to turn. Rocking the steering wheel is so that you can make sure that it is not turning due to the steering lock putting to much pressure on the tumbler.

The key wont turn on a 2005 chevy impala


Sometimes the simplest solution here is the steering wheel being locked to one side.. Try moving the wheel back and forth (it should only move about 1cm) and try turning the key simultaneously.

2005 Chevy Impala key seats in ignition but will not turn


With the key in the ignition try turning the steering wheel side to side, it may require a bit of force in either direction to get the wheel freed up and allow the key to turn. This happens when you don't allow the steering wheel to come to a resting spot before removing the key from the ignition.

Even if you bypassed the switch, your steering would remain locked. In order to determine what is wrong with it, (other than the obvious) It will need to be taken apart. You will need a manual (such as Haynes, chilton etc) in order to do this safely and correctly.
