Ignitions locked key won't turn


Try your spare key to see if it helps any. Make sure the steering wheel is not hard locked while turning the ignition. Try gently moving the steering wheel while trying to turn the ignition. Sometimes a spray of wd-40 in the cylinder will help

CANT TURN KEY


turn steering wheel left or right away from the steering lock as you try to turn key forward. (happens all the time)
If you spend a few minutes and it's not working, may be a bad ignition switch.
Play with that wheel for a while.

Try turning your steering wheel either way while turning the key!!! If the wheels are not straight when you turn of the car the ignition cylinder will lock in position If you turn the wheel a little while turning the key it will unlock the cylinder..

My key is in the ignitation and wnt turn from acc. to lock can u help me????


Turn the steering wheel hard left and try turning key. If it doesn't move, try the right side. If that fails, try pushing the gear Hirt lever forward -it should be in PARK. If it is in PARK, push forward on shifter and turn key. Last option, pry the small (1/2" x 1/2") access panel off the frame around the gear shift. There should be a button under it. Push the button and turn the key. Good luck

Car is parked and off but unable to turn key in ignition and steering wheel is locked.


Try moving the steering wheel left and right as you turn the key - sometimes the steering lock will stick if there is pressure from the wheel. If this doesn't do it, try spraying or pouring some dry graphite into the lock cylinder ( the hole for the key) slide the key in and out of the lock quickly a few times to spread the graphite, then move the steering wheel left and right as you turn the key.
Hope this does it for you!

Locked steering wheel


Try having someone rock the car frontwards and backwards, while you rock the steering wheel back and forth and try to turn the key - it sounds like you're jammed up hard against the steering column lock.
