Ignition Won't Unlock

I was driving to a friends place...as I arrived I found a spot...parked and turned the key off then removed the key from the ignition I then got out closed the doors and locked the Jimmie with the remote car lock. A few hours later I came out...unlocked the Jimmie with the remote....open the doors....got in and when I inserted the key into the ignition it wouldn't turn so it is like it is locked or as if the wrong key was being used.....any ideas?

You have to change out the ignition I just went through that with mine 2000 and it had to do with the button on the gear shift and lock in ignition switch.
It cost me around 400.00

Try turning the steering wheel while turning the key, my 96 jimmy does the same thing, the wheel is locked so key won't turn, Just pull the wheel a bit 1 way or the other,, it will turn..

    I would have to say that the ignition is bad then,, Is the key the orig for the vehicle, If it is one that you had cut for it, it wasn't cut right,, The one that I had cut for mine does work once in a while..

What if jiggling steering wheel does not correct stuck ignition?


Pull or push the auto transmission gear selector slightly further in each direction from the "park" position. The key can not be removed unless the car is in park. If the gear selector is not in the exact spot needed - the ignition will not move to allow the key to be removed. Likewise, if the car battery is dead, you may not be able to remove the key until you connect to another car with jumper cables to energize the ignition circuits.

Good luck!

Had a similar problem. Solved it two ways first place key in the 3 position move gear to N then start and it will shift easily. Second solution check brake light fuse, it is probably blown replace it and gears will shift OK.

Ignition switch won't release key when it is put in park. But when I removed switch and key tumbler, the key tumbler/cylinder releases key. Why won't the key release when it is in park?


Most newer models have a safety feature called
shift interlock. This prevents the key from being turned back
to the lock position if you forget to place the gear selector in park.
Depending on the model,
If it uses a cable, it may be sticking or needs adjusting.
If it uses an electrical solenoid. may be blown fuse or park switch.
Tap, shake, and pull up on the shifter and make sure it's in park.

you never describe what type of fuel does your car use... is it a diesel or petrol engine? if its a diesel engine then i have the correct sollution that can help you. the problem will be on the injector pump, on the main switch. change the switch and the problem will be solved. or check whether power reaches there. when it reaches then is the injector switch doesnt work to close the main valve that the car can switch off. all the best
