Key will not completely turn off the car or come out
My 2004 Jaguar S-type's key is stuck in the ignition, and will not completely turn the vehicle off. I tried restarting and truing off the engine, put the car into and out of gear, removing the key by force (ha), and compressing the break while turning the key. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!!!
Re: Key will not completely turn off the car or come out
U probally need to change the shift assmebly , i had a problem like this with my x-type , where as the key would not come out , it was because there is some kind of button down in the shifter that gets pressed when the car is pushed in park , so probaly something broke in ur shifter , and that button is not getttin pressed to release the key .

Sounds like it is some type of 'limp home' mode.
It could be anything. It might be as simple as a bad Fuel Pump Relay. When you turn the Key to the ON position (not Start) can you hear a little buzz for about 1 second? That would be your fuel pump running. You need to see if the engine is getting gas and spark.
i presume you mean the key transponder module for the security system, the system comprises of a key module/antennae module whitch is around the ignition barrel, this communicates with the instrument pack which is the brains of the p.a.t.s. security system, information is then sent around to the cars other modules, ie engine control module via the can network to say ok to start or this is not my key so dont allow to start. what is the nature of your problem? is the pats light flashing?
if its the correct key for your car and its not working try a spare if you have one. check the condition of the teeth on the key it maybe worn out or bent. it could also be the key tumbler that is worn and needs replacing. does your key chain weigh a lot that is more than the weight of say just 4 keys if so this may have caused the tumblers to were out.
What? are you still stuck over there? The reason is because you don't insert your key properly, plus the steering unlocks and seats move because of accessories mode, if you want to move out of park, it must be ignition on.
It may not be the battery, it may be the ignition switch. There is a switch within the key barrel if this switch gets dirty the remote lock, I have a 2004 model. Squirt some WD40 into the key barrel and turn the key a few time to shift the dirt, then try the remote. The switch is design not to lock the doors accidently, so the switch has to closed, when you take the key out of the barrel.
Have both keys to hand. Rapidily flick the ignition to position 1 four times until you hear a chime then press the unlock key on both remotes. A chime should be heard each both times when you press the buttons
