Ignition key won't turn, gear shift is stuck in park


Turn your steering wheel and turn your key at the same time. GM vehicles have issues with the ignition switch not turning when the steering wheel is turned too far to the left or right.

98 Chrysler Town & Country Ignition, steering wheel & gear shift are all locked up. Last night we stopped to get some fast food. When we came back out to the van, it would not allow us to move...


Sometimes the mechanical system that locks your steering wheel has too much vehicle weight which can prevent the key from turning. If you can move the vehicle back and forth while someone turn the steering wheel and turn the ignition switch.

1998 Isuzu Rodeo The key will not turn in the ignition. I can get it in and out. the steering wheel cant turn. What are my options to trouble shoot or repair


Try moving the Steering Wheel, put a little muscle into it. Some vehicles have a steering column lock that prevents the key from being turned if in the locked position

Pulled into store . got back in my truck the wheels are turned outward. The key will not turn the ignition. cant move the steering wheel at all or the gears shifter.


I would say that the wheels have gone up against the stops and the steering lick has slipped in and been pinched by the steering column. Turn the steering wheel as hard as you can in the direction the wheels are pointing and then try turn the key. Rather **** the steering wheel than try to force the key - is is the weaker component. This is the obvious solution tho the steering/key problem and hopefully it ties in with the gear shift problem. Good luck!

Key gets stuck in ignition


My daughter drives a Suzuki, my solution to her is: while the gear shift lever is in park, lightly put pressure on the gear shift lever, through the park position and while pressing the gear shift towards park light rock left to right while trying to remove the key.

The interlock between the transmission and the ignition switch needs to be adjusted/ repaired or replaced.
