    Is there any way I can unlock it manually by opening the cover on top of the steering mechanism?

I know you have turned the wheel and tried, but i used to work valet and what i always did was to quickly **** the wheel back then forth while 'jiggling' the key to turn. Something in there gets in a jam and this was usually the only to do it.

Please rate if this helps fixya problem

respond with further questions...thanks

    i would not recommend trying anything like that if you are not familiar with it. have you tried placing the vehicle in neutral first? if you cant shift without the key, there should be a 'shift lock' button or keyhole near the shifter. try putting it in neutral then back in park.. sometimes this will break it free.

2001 ford taurus key won't turn ignition


The steering wheel was turned when the key was removed. So when you try to turn on the key, turn the wheel one way and the other way to release the pressure on the key. The key should turn ok.
Hope this helps.

I locked my keys in the trunk of my 2007 Ford Mustang Convertible and I do not have my extra set of keys. There is no release button. What do I do? I'm at a hospital with no way home


Call Ford Roadside Assistance. They will open your car door for you.

To receive roadside assistance in the United States for Ford or Mercury

vehicles, call 1-800-241-3673 or if you own a Lincoln vehicle, call
1-800-521-4140.

Otherwise, get a coat hanger and insert it carefully between the front & rear windows and try to activate the unlock button in the car. It will set off the alarm, but you can turn it off after you get keys from trunk. Hit the trunk release inside the car.

Ok i have a mustang 2001 gt with supercharger and one time some guys were trying to steal my car and the try to start my car by using a screw driver and now my car woun't start even if i used the real key...


They damaged the interlock on the steering column so the steering wheel may have to come off to fix the wire for the interlock, if they damaged it and you have a key fob the fob won't register without the wire making contact with the wire activating security system and computer, A lock smith can fix it for about 100 bucks. I don't give this type of information out on the net so that others who read it could disable or steal a car. sorry.

Try wiggling the steering wheel while turning the key. If that does not work the locking device has broken apart inside the column and will need to be town down to inspect

Ignigtion locked up. Acts like it wrong key, but only 1 I have and has worked up until now. Steering wheel and gear shift locked also


Hi TK,

This happens every once in a while when there is stress on the steering lock plate. Which ever direction the wheels are pointed, turn the steering a little more in the same direction while at the same time turning the key.

Taking the pressure off releases the ignition enough to turn the key.

Best regards
Mike
