SOURCE: The ignition key won't turn.

It sounds as if the lock and tumbler may be bad. In most cases were you can't turn the key its due to the wheel being in a locked postion and jambed up against the lock itself. In this case though with the wheel that does not lock, its leading me to belive that the tumbler came apart in a mid point of turning, hence no lock and no turn.

SOURCE: i have 98 chrysler sebring and my ignition is lock

First if the steering wheel is locked try to turn the steering wheel away from the locked position and and jiggle the key at the same time. If you have another set of keys try them too. I did have one of these tumblers go bad before if the other two things don't work you will probably have to replace the tumbler which is kinda hard to do if you can't turn the key on because to get the tumbler out you have to have the key on and push a button underneath as part of a security so its not easy to steal. You can get it out with a hammer and punch where the button is to force it out but be carefull not to break it. If you dont have a new tumbler right away you can use a large screwdriver to start it temperoly after you get the old tumbler out.

Might have to replace the ignition assembly. The bolts on the steering column must be drilled out. There is a pin the retracts into a hole that locks the steering wheel, and it is part of the ignition Assembly. The two new bolt tighten down untill the heads break off so know one can remove the ignition to steel the car.

I cannot get the key to turn in the ignition. The ignition seems locked.


Before turning the key, try moving the steering wheel back and forth while turning the key. Sometimes on power steering equipped vehicles when they are turned off and the wheel isn't straight, it will put excess pressure on the ignition lock cylinder. Moving the steering wheel may ferr it up.

I have a 2000 Chrysler Voyager and both the ignition and steering wheel have locked up. Is there a way to fix this without replacing any parts?


usually you need to put a little pressure on the steering wheel turning it one way or the other while you try turning the key until the lock releases this often happpens if the wheels are turned when you shut the car off but can happen at any time

My key will not turn


Hum...Try this.

With you left hand on the steering wheel and your right hand on the key, turn the key slightly until you feel resistance. Keep the pressure used to turn the key and pull the steering wheel to the left like you are turning left. If this doesn't work then turn the steering wheel to the right while trying to turn the key. If the problem is caused by the steering wheel lock this should allow you to turn the key and starrt your car. It is a very common issue and shows up alot when cars are parked with the wheels turned somewhat to one side or the other.

My key wont turn. ignition is locked. brakes and wheel are all locked. had it happen before fixed it but cant remember what i did.


If the steering wheel lock is engaged with the wheel turned sharply in either direction - weight of the vehicle at rest on the wheels can cause the steering column and ignition key lock to bind. To get the ignition to turn and unlock, you may have to grasp and turn the wheel or wiggle it a little back and forth to get it to come off the steering lock. This will relieve the pressure and allow you to turn the ignition lock if done right.

The ignition key won't turn.


There is a collar just behind(towards the front of the vehicle) the keyswitch. If you take a chokehold on this collar and turn it counterclockwise, it should release your ignition. I'm assuming you're not parked on a massive grade with the wheel cut all the way to one side. If thats the case than you've only got to forcefully turn the wheel in the SAME direction of the wheels and that will release the ignition and the wheel.

My steering wheel won't move in my 2000 pontiac grand am gt...I can still put the car in drive, reverse, etc. But the steering wheel is not moving at all.


it may be your steering lock try and move the steering left and right whilst turning the ignition or an old car thief trick is just keep pull down to one side on the wheel until the steering lock snaps or shears and it should be free to turn after that good luck
