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.

Most of the time when shifting into park on 2002 Grand Prix it will not get to true ignition "off" position. You can reove the key but the ignition is not off and after awhile the battery will...


you have either a faulty shifter assembly or the ignition shift interlock cable that runs between ignition cylinder and shifter assembly it is very common for the cables that causes this.

My 2003 Grand Am will not go into park


Try putting it into neutral, then apply the parking brake, then try to remove your key.

The problem is the BTSI or Brake-Transmission Interlock. It is a safety feature designed to allow the car out of park only when the brake is pressed, and only allow the key to turn to lock in the ignition when properly parked. Your car is not "recognizing" that your in fact, properly mechanically parked. If my first instructions did not work; try the following...you will need both hands simultaneously and one foot.

*This only applies if your battery is not dead*

Apply the brake;
then with your right hand, push in your shift lever button and push the lever forward as far as will go...hold firmly.
Then with your left hand, try to turn your key to lock and remove it.
However if your battery is dead, look at your shift console. You will see a plastic tab next to your shift lever, it may have a "12V" label next to it. Beneath this tab is the switch for emergency power to get your key out of the ignition on a dead battery.

bad battery and if i don't drive the car couple of days then it goes dead ??? It's not the battery , you have a parasitic draw on the electrical system , that is what is draining the battery . Could be the instrument cluster .Watch this video . What's giving out 13 volts or when ? With the engine running hooking a volt meter to the battery the voltage should be 13 - 14 volts , depending on the load on the electrical system.

Does the vehicle have column or floor mounted gear selector ? Both have a safety feature Electronic Park Lock (EPL)/Ignition Lock Cylinder Control Actuator:
Electronic Park Lock (EPL)/Ignition Lock Cylinder Control Actuator: If the vehicle is equipped with automatic transmission and a floor mounted console gear shift, it has an ignition lock cylinder control actuator system in the steering column. The ignition lock cylinder control actuator purpose is to prevent the ignition key from being turned to the OFF position when the transmission is in any position other than PARK and the vehicle may still be moving. The column ignition lock system consists of an ignition lock cylinder control actuator, and a park position switch that is located in the automatic transmission shift lock control switch. The ignition lock cylinder control actuator contains a pin that is spring loaded to mechanically prevent the ignition key cylinder from being turned to the lock position when the vehicle transmission is not in the PARK position. If vehicle power is lost, and/or the transmission is not in the PARK position the operator will not be able to turn the ignition key to the lock position and will not be able to remove the ignition key from the column.
Linear Shift Assembly: If the vehicle is equipped with a column mounted gear shift, it has a linear shift assembly on the steering column. The linear shift assembly has a cable that runs from the linear shift assembly to the ignition lock cylinder case. The purpose of this cable is to prevent the ignition key from being turned to the OFF position when the transmission is in gear and the vehicle may still be moving. The linear shift assembly cable contains a pin that is spring loaded to mechanically prevent the ignition key cylinder from being turned to the lock position when the vehicle transmission is not in the PARK position. If vehicle power is lost, and/or the transmission is not in the PARK position the operator will not be able to turn the ignition key to the lock position and will not be able to remove the ignition key from the column.

Key locked in ignition... can't get it out. HELP!


while in park, press harder up past park and it will disengage. Otherwise there is a pin on the ignition you can press and remove the entire ignition. You call also lightly tap gently around igniton piece to loose the pins inside that hold the key.

Ford countour battery dead and shift into netral


If all else fails, try locating a parking lock override button or hole near the shifter. Most vehichles now have them, except for those with shift knobs located on the steering column, which should release simply by holding the break all the way while turning the key to the "run" position. If you need to located the unlock button, I'll include some pictures of the override button location on my van as an example to know what to look for.

1. locate the hole.
2. Remove the cover/plug if present.
3. Insert a narrow object such as a car key.
4. Hold brake down.
5. Press inward and hold with one hand, while using the other hand to shift out of park.

(On some cars, the ignition switch has to be in the "run" position to move the shifter, so best to use a different key or a screwdriver to insert into the shift release hole/button.)
