SOURCE: cannot unlock the steering wheel on oldsmobile intrigue 2001

is it the right key for that car? cause if not then that is the problem... if it is the right key, then you might have to replace the key cylinder cause you may have something broken in it...

Okay .. had the EXACT same problem - word for word .. turns out, that my positive battery cable was corrodid badly.. the ignition switch wasnt getting any power or signal - so it didnt know the trans was in park, so it locked the key in place... and all power cut off obviously because no juice was going thru the cable.
Apparently however.. you will get almost the exact same symptoms if the ignition switch burns out... so first test the battery cables themselves.. if they are fine .. then plan on replacing the ignition switch.

SOURCE: On a 2000 olds Bravada the key wont turn off all the way

you need to replace the whole ignition switch assembly, the swtch may be secured with what you call shear bolts which may have to be drilled out, only you can decide if you are capable of doin this, new bolts should be supplied with the new swith, when you retighten the bolts, the heads will shear off when they are tight enough, the aim of these are to prevent theives making a quick ignition change to steal your car

SOURCE: Feels like my 03 Bravada is stuck in 4wheel drive, jerks badly.

The Bravada 4X4 system uses a fluid called auto trak, in the transfer case. The fluid needs to be changed every 50,000mi. It is a synthetic fluid that will breakdown and cause a binding condition in the system. It is easy to change so anyone can do it. Good Luck.

My 1998 Olds Bravada has the key stuck in the ignition. I paid to have a new ignition key cylinder put in, but the new one does the same thing. The key will start the car etc. but won't come out of...


I know in the newer versions of the Bravada, Trailblazers, Envoys, the ignition switch itself is always the culprit. Not the switch the key goes in, but it's located under the steering wheel column. I know how to replace the newer ones but not yours. That's the first place I'd look.

I slid off my driveway in a snow storm & got stuck. My problem is the steering column is locked & can't turn the ignition to start it or unlock it to get towed out. What could the problem be?


ther should be a steering wheel lock in the colum that engages when the vehicle is shut off . if you slid into the ditch and your wheels are turned or ther is a lot of presure on the wheels or colum then the lock wont disengage( the lock is jambed up because of the presure on it) try to remove the presure on the wheels and pull opposite on the steering wheel. if you get rid of enough presure on the lock it should turn again

The key will not turn in the ignition. The


you have bent tumblers inside the lock cylinder. A replacement will be needed for this repair. The old one is unuseable since the tumblers are stuck inside and the key does not turn it no longer

The key wont turn and neither will the steering wheel


Sounds like the steering column lock is stuck. Look at the front wheels and see which way they are turned. Then get in the car and turn the steering wheel in the same direction while wiggling the key. Put enough pressure on the steering wheel to take the pressure off of the steering lock but not enough to damage anything. The key and wheel should release.

How to get key out that is stuck in ignition


Remove steering column shroud(cover)and tap ignition barrel with small hammer while twisting key backwards and forwards,also turn steering wheel backwards and forwards sometimes this is enough to release key as the locking pins in barrel and the steering lock pin do sometimes jam.You will have to remove steering column shroud to replace ignition barrel if tapping/hitting it doesnt work anyway so its not a wasted effort.Good luck,let me know how it works out

Ignition key won't turn to start; will turn to accessory


Pressure on the side of the tires from the curb caused the steering wheel lock to not release. Wrestling the steering wheel got the tension off the wheel and allowed the key to turn. Problem solved
