    Dealer said have to replace the sterring colum at a cost of $1200. Need to know what to ask ..why can't they just replace the ignition cycinder. Can there be parts broken that cost more in labor to fix then the total replacement?

    Found out that if a rod, or gear, or something else broken, all you can do is replace. The cost of labor makes replacing it cheaper. They took off the colum cover and found something cracked. Don't know how that happened. Maybe from a car accident a year ago and just now a problem.

You have to have power to remove the key. There is a cable to the shifter that is hold the key from turning completely off. Put some pwoer to it and it will release.

When you turn off car key wont cume out


You have a problem with the shifter. Common on the Aveo's. There's a switch on the shifter that wears out. When put in 'Park' it releases the ignition to remove the key. When that switch screws up it's not releasing the ignition. Replace the shifter. I'm a Chevy mechanic.

2004 gmc envoy shifter stuck key wont release


First i would check your brake switch it works a locking mechanism right along side your gear shifter which locks the gearshift in place. also look for a slot sometimes there is a slot made for you to slide your key into to release the shifter and allow you to move it manually. it will be on top somewhere by your shifter identification indicator PRND321 if the brake switch is good remove the PRD321 cover and look for the lock on the right hand side at the base of the shifter this may need replacing. thanks for using Fix Ya

Stuck in 'park'. When I got home and put the car


See a honda dealer or remove console to get to shifter solenoid. Also adjust cable to get key out of ign. We always would pull shifter back and push it foward firmly into park to get them to release key.

Sebring wont get out of park


Newer cars REQUIRE you to press on the brake to get into gear. If the switch at the brake pedal is not working, or the solenoid at the gearshift is not working. The shifter is stuck. You MUST have a little slot by the shifter covered with a small cover. Check your manual, a key in that slot releases the shifter should you have the above problem or the battery is dead and no power to that release solenoid.

Shifter stuck in park ,wont move


Transmission is in a bind, are you parked on an incline or something? If so, try rocking the car with the ignition turned on to release the shifter if and when it comes loose, if not, repair shop sounds like.

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.

Car Won't Fully Shift into Park


You either have problem with the shifter assy, or the shifter cable has come out of adjustment.
If you remove the shifter bezel and center console you will be able to see the shifter cable. There will be a white or black lift tab on the cable. Release the tab and and place shifter in park. If it still does not go into park that means that you will need a shifter assy. If it goes into park with the tab released you push the tab back down with it still in park.

That should take care of your problem.
