How to get key out that is stuck in ignition

2003 Olds Bravda AWD with the key stuck in the ignition. Had a bad battery that is replaced with a new one but cannot get key out of ignition. Key was originally stuck in ignition at the time the battery was dead after trying to start vehicle. When trying to remove key after discovering the battery was dead, was unable to remove key from ignition. No previous problems with removing key before.

Replace battery or charge the one in it, then start the Bravada and when you shut it off it will release the key.

Remove steering column shroud(cover)and tap ignition barrel with small hammer while twisting key backwards and forwards,also turn steering wheel backwards and forwards sometimes this is enough to release key as the locking pins in barrel and the steering lock pin do sometimes jam.You will have to remove steering column shroud to replace ignition barrel if tapping/hitting it doesnt work anyway so its not a wasted effort.Good luck,let me know how it works out

My 1998 Olds Bravada has the key stuck in the ignition. I paid to have a new ignition key cylinder put in, but the new one does the same thing. The key will start the car etc. but won't come out of...


I know in the newer versions of the Bravada, Trailblazers, Envoys, the ignition switch itself is always the culprit. Not the switch the key goes in, but it's located under the steering wheel column. I know how to replace the newer ones but not yours. That's the first place I'd look.

I have a 2003 olds bravda.Why do I hear a clicking noise for about 5 seconds after I start my vehicle?


The clicking comes from worn engine parts that haven't gotten enough lubrication. For instance, the valves may be ticking when first started when engine is cold.

Won't start; hear clicking sound coming from fuse box; no lights; key stuck in ignition. Please help.


please check your battery condition.
clicking sound you hear is from the magnetic switch ***'y of the starter.
no lights & stuck ignition key is caused by a low power or bad battery.
hope this may help.

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
