Try this pull the steering wheel as far to the left as possible and while it is in this position try to insert key. Sometimes the steering wheel lock will get in a bind and prevent the key from being inserted. Hope this helps!!!

Stuck eldorado key in DTS ignition now car won't start

Make sure your steering wheel isn't locked. Sometimes a key won't turn until you jiggle the wheel while trying to turn the key.

I have a 1997 Cadillac Deville. When I put the key in, it will not turn. I tried wiggling the steering wheel but it will not move. Is there something else I can try or could it need a new ignition?

Make sure the shifter is completely in park.
But yes it could possibly be the ignition lock cylinder, or the ignition module on the steering colum.

04 cadillac deville key will not go in the ignition

Wiggle the steering wheel back and forth and try to make sure the key cylinder is in the off position. Sometimes the key will come out with the key not all the way off. If that is the sitation, and the key will work then the key needs to be replaced. If that doesnt work , the lock cylinder needs replaced ,because the tumblers inside are worn out or broken

1998 Cadillac deville. It says eject key Starting disabled

Hello, You may have a ignition lock cylinder failure, The two wires coming off the lock cylinder will break and the resistence signal from the key will not get to the computer. To repair you need to replace the lock cylinder, get a new key with the same resistence value as your old key. This is not a simple task. The driver air bag. steering wheel, air bag coil, signal light switch, key buzzer switch have to come out, The wires from the lock cylinder run down inside the steering column. Hope this helps you.

My key will not enter the ignition in my 2004 cadillac deville. It was working OK this morning. Now it won't.

One of the tumblers in the lock cylinder has fallen and is jamming key. Cylinder will need replacing. Try gently tapping on cylinder ring and key while trying to insert key . If you do get it to turn, don't shut it off till you can get it somewhere to replace cylinder.

1996 Chevy Cav. When i put key in to ignition,

Hi Jamie,
As you turn the key, **** the steering wheel hard side-to-side. The anti-theft interlock between the ignition switch and the steering is just jammed. Happens to all cars from time-to-time, and that's the fix.

Auto won't start

curious, i've seen this before but not whith this kind of car. if you park with the steering wheel turned to one side or the other, when you shut the car off, the power steering also shuts off. this could be putting pressure on the steering wheel when it locks off. next time, before turning off the motor, aim the wheels straight ahead first. be sure the steering wheel is straight on before you turn the engine off. this time, when you turn the motor off, the power steering will not be a factor. hopefully it eliminate the problem.
