First of all make sure it is the right key and then try turning the steering wheel to either the right or left while trying to turn the key in the ignition.if this does not work have the ignition barrel replaced.

My Mercedes Benz 420 SEL key goes in the ignition and will not turn


You may be trying to turn it too soon. I know with my Mercedes, I insert the key, and wait until I hear a sound then I turn the key. If I don't wait, I can not turn it and need to remove the key and insert it again.

Key won't come out of ignition, car won't start, panic alarm goes off when I try to start it


Sounds to me like you need a new ignition switch. Take the vehicle to a mechanic and have them further evaluate.

We bought a new ignition switch for the key not coming out of the ignition but when we installed the new switch the car wouldn't start...is there a step that we're missing? (2004 Aztek)


Hello: TRY THIS Attempt to start the car leave the key on for 10 minutes or until the security light goes out, at this time turn key off for 10 seconds, turn switch on for ten more minutes or when security light goes out, turn key off for 10 seconds. Turn key ON for ten minutes or when security light goes out, turn key off wait 10 seconds, then start car....

Ingine will not turn off after taking keys out . Everything else goes out but ingine keeps running.


Sounds like a faulty ignition barrel! If you take off the trims underneath the steering column you'll be able to gain access to the ignition barrel casing where the key goes. By undoing the casing you'll be able to turn off the engine with a simple flat bladed screwdriver.

Ignition barrels arent too expensive to have replaced, the other problem that might occur is the chance of needing a new set of keys or to have your current keys programmed to the new barrel (Normally a new set of keys is the common procedure with a new barrel)!

Hope this helps
