    i have the same problem and wd40 worked the first time but has not worked the second? i have read that it may be a faulty key cylinder - any help is appreciated

Your key is probably worn down and needs replaced, but you can try spraying a penetrating oil (WD40 or PB Blaster) into the lock cylinder this sometimes works

Key ignition wont turn


APPLY BRAKE AND MAKE SURE STEERING WHEEL IS CENTERED. IF IT IS PARKED SO THERE IS PRESSURE ON THE FRONT WHEELS AND HOLDING THE STEERING WHEEL HARD RIGHT OR LEFT IT WILL MAKE THE KEY VERY HARD TO TURN.

Why can't I unlock my ignition and start my car?


Put one hand on the steering wheel and rotate slightly left and right alternatively whilst turning the ignition key at the same time with the other hand. This might release the steering wheel and start ignition.

Hope this helps.

Key won't turn, won't shift from Park


My 2003 Saturn l200 2.2 ecotec did this when the battery was dead. Put some juice on the battery, then the car came out of park, and I was able to remove the key. To the car, there's a vast difference between a sluggish battery and a dead battery. It may have enough amps to crank it, but it wont start w/out full output from the battery.

2001 ford taurus key won't turn ignition


The steering wheel was turned when the key was removed. So when you try to turn on the key, turn the wheel one way and the other way to release the pressure on the key. The key should turn ok.
Hope this helps.

Like others, my key is stuck in the ignition of my cadillac CTS. Car starts and turns off but the ignition will not turn back beyond the accessory possition and the battery has died.


there is a switch in shifter that lets ign. turn back when in park. switch does not come seperate. shifter replacement is req. there is a plug in steering column that can be removed then you put a small screw driver in to push on override button to allow key to turn back. it is located below key.
