SOURCE: 1998 Wranger Ignition Key Stuck / Steering Column Locked

I have had this same problem on 4 of my Jeeps. A locksmith provided me with two answers.
This key thing happens to me at least once a week.
It is a common problem with Jeeps. 1998 Wrangler, 2007 Cherokee and two 2000 Cherokees all had the issue.


1. Replace the tumbler assembly. $150. USD (Not!)
2. Place the key in the ignition, smartly impact the key on the **** end, end that is sticking out of the ignition. (Harder is not better) strike straight on as to not break the key off. 4 or 5 strikes should fix the problem every time.

FYI - flooding the switch with WD-40 will not fix the issue, it is a tumbler problem.

I have a 95 camaro, I put the key in ignition and it will not turn the ignition. It's like it's stuck. Replaced the ignition module and still cannot turn ignition. Help!


the ignition module (ignition switch on top of the steering column) normally doesn't get stuck.

things you can try:
steering wheel lock: (the pin gets a "burr" on it and locks everything up) wiggle steering wheel back and forth while trying to turn key.

transmission lock (parking on an incline will jam up the interlock)
push the shifter farther into park while trying to turn the key, or wiggle shifter

Key will not turn over the car everything including the steering wheel is locked up


Try wiggling the steering wheel when you turn the key. Sometimes there's a steering lock. Also, make sure the car is in Park. Could be the lock cylinder, or the wheel lock jamming.

Key is stuck in ignition. Depressing the "unlock"


Somtimes you need to turn the steering wheel a little to allow the lock to engage.

Try depress the unlock button while moving the steering back and forth a little. Try a lot..
If not work, drape a scarf or towel over steering column to hide key in ignition, and use spare key to open door lock. You do have spare key?
Check your insurance, you may have lock smith lock out coverage.
Good luck.

Keys stuck in ignition. its in park. ( and 3 days out of warrenty)


In the ring around the ignition switch (where your key is stuck) there is a recessed dimple. Get a ballpoint pen, insert into the dimple, hold it there while turning your key to the lock position (if it's not already there) and remove the key.

2007 cobalt will not start or turn over. key


Could be a problem with key in ignition switch located on the side of the lock cylinder inside steering column. The one I worked on this was part of whats called clockspring assembly witch will be a dealer only part. Then you cut the two wire swtch off and splice it in so you don't have to remove steering wheel and replace the whole clockspring assembly. Might also be problem with ignition switch (inside column) that key lock cylinder ingages into. I have a couple of questions. Is power going to the dash and just not the starter? Is the security light on all the time and dosn't cycle out? There should be a anti theft reset precedure like leaving key on till light goes out. Good luck hope this helped

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.

Ignition key is stuck in the cylinder


Did u try turning the steering wheel slightly in either direction? The steering wheel can 'jam' causing the key to seem stuck in the ignition. Simply turning the steering wheel a bit relieves the pressure and the key will turn. Let me know if this works for u

Key ignition


Steering wheel lock.
Turn the steering away from lock position, hold the steering wheel then turn the key .

No, it will not turn an inch, but slightly to relief the pressure off the key ignition housing, or wiggling it while turning the key.
