You either dropped your key and bent the teeth or your wheel is turned so far its locked very, very hard. Try this with caution. Turn the wheel even farther, almost like your trying to break the wheel in the same turned direction the wheels are now and then while holding the wheel with all your strength in that direction try to turn the key again!

Should work.

How do I remove electronic key push fob from ignition switch?


The key can't come out unless you have it all the way off. Sometimes the steering lock and brake lockout prevent that, so wiggle the steering lock and push on the brake while trying to turn it off. You also have to be in park if automatic.

Ignition switch will not engage/push in/turn to start car


Disconnect your battery and try the key. If it works, the car has an electric lockout latch that is malfunctioning inside the lock. If the lock still won't turn with the battery loose, try wiggling the steering wheel (to relax the steering wheel lock pin) and jiggling the key. Either of these two wiggles making the key operate means worn out key or lock cylinder. Oh, also make sure the car is in neutral or park.

If the light is flashing it may be an issue with the passlock sensor.Here is a process you can try to reset the passlock. If this process does not work you may need to replace the ignition tumbler and passlock.

Security light keeps blinking and car wont start


try this reset procedure, if it doesn't work the dealer must be consulted, there is problem with the security control module, if the module is in need of replacing the part must be programed to accept your ignition key.

If the car is a manual transmission car, it has a reverse lockout function. The gear shift lever must be in reverse to remove the key.
