SOURCE: key stuck in ignition of Trailblazer.

There is a small 1/4'' oblong cover plate on the underside of the stearing column. Pop this out and there is a button you push in ( like the Crysler key relase) and this will allow you to remove the key.

SOURCE: Key stuck in ignition - 2007 HHR Automatic

I have posted this several times I have a 2006 HHR and I agree with you but here is a cheap solution. There is a pin that goes thru the shift cable that is falling out. Above the window buttons pry the little plastic holder out remove the 2 screws take the plastic off of the sides of the console you will see a black plastic frame with holes in it I cut a larger hole between 2 of the small holes with a hack saw on the driver side. Put the car in neutral drivers seat all the way back pull on the shift button and you will see the pin pull it out with a pair of needle nose pliers. I put 598 black loctite sealant on mine and reinstall. Shift back to park if you can get the key out and the doors unlock you have the pin in the right spot and it is making both switches when in park. You can see if it is on the switches by looking thru the hole where the little holder came out. The pin sticks out about a 1/2" on each side. Good luck

SOURCE: can't remove key from ignition. battery is dead

If the battery is dead, the ignition keys will not release from the ignition. If there is no signal from the transmission shifter that it's in park since the battery is dead, then the ignition lock will not release the keys.  After charging the battery or jumping the blazer to start it and the key's still will not release, try this. 
There is a "plunger" as part if the ignition. Under the steering wheel there is a small removable cap that you can take off and put a small screw driver up into and press the plunger in and it will release the key. Good luck and hope this helps, Keep me posted be glad to help.

SOURCE: Key stuck, won't turn, won't shift...replace ignition switch?

Try to shift your key in either direction while try to turn your steering in left and right direction. May be its steering lock which is attached to your ignition key preventing shifting of key. If not, then its obviously your ignition that has gone.
If you decide to change ignition then as a last try Dip your key in lubricating oil and then insert in ignition to turn it on. May be it can help.

SOURCE: 2005 Chevy Blazer - Key gets stuck in ignition

so, there are two main areas for problems, the lock cylinder itself, and the rest of the system. This involves a rod, sometimes tilt column, and a switch.
Typically, the issue is a lock issue, to tell, where, does turning the key feel like it is jambed, or does it feel that the lock can turn , but something else is jambed?

No power to fuel pump


You added fuel and still no start. If you have indeed proved a no spark condition, it could be the ignition box inside the distributor is dead, a common problem with late '80s ford ignitions.

Won't start key stuck in ignition gas and temp gauge not working


this sounds like something is draining the battery like a bad alternator. if you install a new battery the car will run until the car drains the battery due to a bad alternator or bad wiring, these cars are all electronic so without a good battery you cant open door or start, take a look at battery and if it is low or dead again then have the charging system checked.

was the key in the on position while it was stuck in ignition? If so, you have a dead battery most likely. Get it charged or jumped depending on how dead it is and it should start. Hope that helps.

My 2008 maxima is completely dead.. the intelligent key wasnt working so i switched the battery.. tried using the metal key to turn the ignition and that wont work.. its locked up and wont unlock.. nothing...


Have you checked the battery at all? you may have just left the lights on and flattened the battery. Try charging the system first, and check the underhood fuses. situated near the battery. Hope this helps.

Key stuck, won't turn, won't shift...replace ignition switch?


Before you replace the switch try this. As you try to turn the key rock the steering wheel back and forth. The key may turn then, if so it was stuck due to pressure from the steering wheel lock. If it still doesn't turn yes the key and tumbler are bad.

05' magnum keys stuck in ignition


It is possible that your problem is with the shift lock actuator. Charge the battery up. For safety sake charge the battery outside the car. If your ignition is on you don't want to hook up jumper cables. If you do it wrong you can spike the computer. Once you have a strong battery put your trans down in to low and then firmly back into park. The shift lock mechanism is meant to keep you from starting the car without putting your foot on the brake, but if it fails it can be engaged and not let you go back into park. Use a test light to check all your fuses if it still will not work. If that does not do it, start it in neutral and take it to the garage.

Hope that helps.
