Your key may be overly worn and need replaced, but try jiggling the key and steering wheel at the same time. if that doesnt work try sraying a penetrating oil, like WD40 or PB Blaster, into the lock cylinder. it could also be the gear shift safety switch not disengaging or a faulty ignition switch

I have a 2003 Pontiac grand am gt my ignition want turn and my steering wheel isn't locked also my floor gear shift is moving with the key out


Your shifter isn't going into the park position or the solenoid that locks the shifter and sends a signal to the ignition switch is bad. I believe you have to replace the entire shifter to fix this problem.

Ignition switch will not engage/turn to start car


Hi Beth usually when shifter is stuck there is a locking mechanism and keeps shifter from engaging unless brake is depressed to release the lock. If you hear a clicking sound when pedal is depressed then switch is probably ok and its probably the steering wheel lock. First try with your spare key to start the vehicle(old key may be worn ). If that doesn't do it then try with WD 40 a very little in ignition key hole or on the key work it slowly and see what happens. If none of these suggestions work its probably the steering wheel lock and that requires surgery. Keep me post best of luck

Ignition stuck key won't turn to start car!


Gear shift is not totally in the park position - had the same problem with a 2011 Acura TL - a rubber band kept the gear shift lever from totally seating in the park position.

Chrysler sebring 2001 key wont turn


1) Wrong key 2) Shift lever out of park or neutral 3) If steering is locked, it is exerting too much pressure on the ignition, try jiggling it while turning key.

Key stuck in the ignition. Position indicator


Hi there,
try turning the wheel to the right/left while turning the key in the ignition. You have to apply some force. Your car is probably outliving its road life.

I can't pull out the key it seem that the car locked the key and i cant start the car


Make sure the gear selector is fully in park, alot of times if the cars wheel was turned when the vehicle is parked the steering wheel is locked in the turn position and it puts pressure on the ignition switch. Try turning the steering wheel slightly left/right and see if it kicks back. If it does you have tension on the ignition and need to hold it until the key is turned to the on position and it unlocks the ignition. If you can try to let the wheel come to a rest before turning off the ignition as opposed to holding the wheel turned and shutting off the ignition, this will avoid a locked wheel/column

My 2001 chrysler sebring has been fine, but tonight i put they key in and it wont turn, it feels like something mechanical not electrical...they key goes in and out, just wont turn....any thoughts?


When you put the key in the ignition, try giving it a few good taps right on top of they key. That usually does the trick for me. Also, always be sure the wheels are straight before turning off the ignition. For some reason, parking with the wheels turned often causes this lockup problem for me. It can be a pain, but just keep tapping and it should unlock.
