SOURCE: why won't my ignition key turn over and my steering wheel is locked in place at the sametime?

I'm assuming you mean your key wont turn in the ignition. first off check to make sure the car is in park. then what you gotta do is put in the key and put a little pressure as if turning but dont turn too hard, then even though the steering wheel is locked you will have to try to move it a little, if you parked with your tires turned then you will want to try to turn the wheel in the same direction, (even locked you should be able to move it about a half inch) you will have to turn the wheel hard but it should move enough to allow the key to turn, you may have to jiggle the key a little in the ignition but it should eventually turn, just remember not to try turning the key too hard, the extra force wont make it go but can cause the key to break. this tends to happen when you turn the car off andthe steering wheel gets locked if the wheels are turned hard in either direction. also if multiple attempts at this still dont work, try taking the key out and turning it over and trying again. Even though both sides of the key are identicle, because of wear on the key and the ignition, sometimes when the wheel locks the ignition, it will only turn if the key is put in a certain way. Hope this helps, good luck

SOURCE: key stuck in ignition but it will turn, and

you most likely have a bad key switch cylinder assembly. you can try to spray wd40 solvent into the switch before you have the switch replaced,but sometimes it's a switch replacement that repairs the problem. have you inspected your ignition key to look for damage to the key itself? try a spare key to make sure it's the key,and not the key switch. you can also try turning the key while turning the steering wheel at the same time to get the key to work.sometimes the switch locks when parked in a bind,such as on a hill,or against a curb and so on. try this 1st before you have the ignition switch replaced. AAA auto club,if you're a member covers part of the replacement costs for a replacement switch also. you may have coverage through a cell phone also.one more thing to try, if you have a tilt steering column,try to reposition the steering wheel to see if you can get the key to turn. remember never force it enough to break your key off into the switch! thank you for choosing fixya.com!

SOURCE: My steering wheel locked and my key won't turn

Common problem with steering locks is that they can jam in position I recommend putting the key in and gently moving the steering wheel side to side as far as it will reasonably go without struggle and maintain even pressure on the key, this should hopefully work after a few seconds.
Hope this helps, Sion.

How do I get my car keys out when it is stuck in my Nissan Micra K12 ignition?


Try to turn the steering wheel gently from side to side while pulling on the key. Quite often the steering lock engages with the steering wheel shaft and it makes it difficult to get the key out while the shaft puts pressure on the lock.

How can I release the steering lock when its not responding to the key


sometimes the wheel gets in a lock condition with key in. When that happens, sometime you can free it by putting the key and turning it to accessory position, and jiggling the wheel right and left.

Stuck eldorado key in DTS ignition now car won't start


Make sure your steering wheel isn't locked. Sometimes a key won't turn until you jiggle the wheel while trying to turn the key.

Nissan micra won't lock


I just opened the key and put loads of switch cleaner (you can get it for a few quid from Maplin's or similar). Good as a workaround, but presumably not a long term solution.

I put my key into the keyhole near the steering wheel so I could start the car, but for some reason my key won't turn, like it's stuck, what can I do to fix that?


Try moving your steering wheel to the left then jiggle the key until it releases, if no luck try the same thing moving the steering wheel to the right, or combination of both ways, If this works then there is nothing to worry about, it can happen almost to any vehicle, you are just in between the wheel locking mechanism and the ignition start or the removal of the key, a common problem in the design of the wheel lock, to prevent it from happening again, just have your steering wheel were you want it before starting or turning off you car.
