SOURCE: key is stuck in ignition in 2007 hyundai sonata

The problem is in the tumbler(s) inside the assembly. Before you do anything, try penetrating oil to see if that works... otherwise, the entire assembly will need to be replaced.

My 1997 audi a4 the ignition key is stuck. what

OK first thing- Car has to be in park to pull the key from the ingnition. if it is and you still cant pull it, rock the wheel back and forth alittle (sometimes the columb lock doesnt lock properly and you cant release the key until it locks, rocking the wheel usually fixes this problem). and the last possibility is that the tumblers in your ignition have broken, when this happens you cant pull the key from the ignition because you cant turn the key back to the off possition all the way. when this happens you don't want to pull the key because you risk not being able to put it back in the ignition later and are forced to replace the ignition so you can drive your car. However if the tumblers are indeed broken you will have to replace the ignition anyway, atleast by leaving the key in it you can still drive the car until its replaced

The key will get stuck in the ignition in 99 Hyundai Elantra.

IT could be two things. The first thing it could be is the ignition itself. This type of ignition has a electrical plug that will pop up when the car is put in park so if the car is not in park or n the key will not come out. On elantras these sometimes fail and fail often. When thay do fail the key will get stuck and like you said you can go back later and the key will come out. The problem is that you do want to get a new ing you will have a 2 keys. your old keys for your doors and a new one for your ing cause hyundai will not rekey ingitions. The second thing that it could be is called a park safety switch when you put the shifter in park it sends a signal to the electrical plug to lift up. This sensor is under your shifter and also goes bad often causeing the same problem. These sensors are in the same circuit and are tied together I always replace both.
