Ensure that your vehicle's transmission is in park. If you
have manual transmission you can skip this step and move on to Step 2.
Press the brake of your car completely down with your right foot. If the key of the car is not in the ignition put it there now.
Hold the steering wheel of your car firmly with your left
hand and the car's key placed in the ignition with your right hand. Turn
the steering wheel to the right and left while you twist the ignition
key as if you are starting the car. Engaging in these two motions
simultaneously will release the ignition switch and allow you to turn
the car on.
There is a little button often near the 2oclock area of the ignition switch that needs to be pressed, alternatively a button sticking out of the bottom of the steering column may need to be pressed, and finally the vehicle may need to be in placed in park/first gear and the key just pressed in to turn farther back to be removed... If after trying these things it still wont come out, then call your dealer or trusted mechanic...
First I would switch out the fuel pump relay and try starting your vehicle if you have no luck with that I would take a test light with the key on engine off and trace the circuit from the fuel pump up towards the engine compartment to check for a continous circuit ensuring that the power wire is not severed or has a weak/loose connection or has shorted out with one or more wires. If you still are having problems you may have a problem with the ecu specifically affecting the fuel management system and I would have it professionally diagnosed and repaired if found at fault. If you need any further help let me know
My daughter drives a Suzuki, my solution to her is: while the gear shift lever is in park, lightly put pressure on the gear shift lever, through the park position and while pressing the gear shift towards park light rock left to right while trying to remove the key.
The interlock between the transmission and the ignition switch needs to be adjusted/ repaired or replaced.
