Key won't turn, won't shift from Park


My 2003 Saturn l200 2.2 ecotec did this when the battery was dead. Put some juice on the battery, then the car came out of park, and I was able to remove the key. To the car, there's a vast difference between a sluggish battery and a dead battery. It may have enough amps to crank it, but it wont start w/out full output from the battery.

I have 05 kia rio. jump started dead battery but the cables were crossed and killed it instead. purchased new battery. car stuck in park. worked when screwdriver in override button but still won'


There is a large maxi-fuse between the battery and alternator. Its at least 100 amp or more. It may be in the cable at the battery, or in one of the fuse boxes.
You may also have damaged the key switch or the brake circuit.
You may have to get a book to get the wiring diagrams to check everything involved.

Key stuck in the ingition , will only turn back as far as ACC. had to stall the car to shut it off and then disconnect the battery to keep it from draining dead.now how can i get the key out ?


I had a similar problem--I'd try to turn off the car & pull out the key & it would get stuck, like it was locked in. The problem that caused this for me was that I had not put the car fully in park--I had to shift out of park & re-shift to get it to stay in park. Once it was fully in park, the key would unlock. Hope this helps!

Cant get my 1993 nissan altima out of park


is your battery dead? turn your headlights on. do they work? if not,then the battery is dead. your car will not come out of park unless the brake lights come on. if the batterys dead,the brake lights will not come on. try a boost from another car. another solution,brake light fuse is blown.look under the dash or on driverside dash panel for fuse panel. look for a brake kight fuse that's blown. have you tryed applying the brake pedal with car off to see if the brake lights come on?hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com

My 2003 Grand Am will not go into park


Try putting it into neutral, then apply the parking brake, then try to remove your key.

The problem is the BTSI or Brake-Transmission Interlock. It is a safety feature designed to allow the car out of park only when the brake is pressed, and only allow the key to turn to lock in the ignition when properly parked. Your car is not "recognizing" that your in fact, properly mechanically parked. If my first instructions did not work; try the following...you will need both hands simultaneously and one foot.

*This only applies if your battery is not dead*

Apply the brake;
then with your right hand, push in your shift lever button and push the lever forward as far as will go...hold firmly.
Then with your left hand, try to turn your key to lock and remove it.
However if your battery is dead, look at your shift console. You will see a plastic tab next to your shift lever, it may have a "12V" label next to it. Beneath this tab is the switch for emergency power to get your key out of the ignition on a dead battery.
