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.

Ignition switch won't release key when it is put in park. But when I removed switch and key tumbler, the key tumbler/cylinder releases key. Why won't the key release when it is in park?


Most newer models have a safety feature called
shift interlock. This prevents the key from being turned back
to the lock position if you forget to place the gear selector in park.
Depending on the model,
If it uses a cable, it may be sticking or needs adjusting.
If it uses an electrical solenoid. may be blown fuse or park switch.
Tap, shake, and pull up on the shifter and make sure it's in park.

Trunk won't open


Lower the back seat and crawl into the trunk and see what the latch is doing when you activate the key fob. the trunk lid will have to be open to enable any repairs. Also an emergency release cable is probably visible (yellow handle) inside the trunk and will Open the trunk lid.

Trunk won't open


The actuator may sound as though it is working but the latch could be damaged or misaligned. Also, the actuator could be too weak to operate the latch. If it is necessary to replace the actuator, your Camry is old enough to make a junkyard a likely source.

Don't know how to get old ignition switch out to put new one in.


How to remove an ignition cylinder for repair or replacement if your Grand Cherokee's ignition won't turn. This is due to the tumblers failing. Key must be tuned to the on position. Then you press in the lock tab to release it so you can repair yourself or more likely, bring it to a locksmith to have the tumblers replaced. This can be done to match the existing key. Obviously, you'll have to get it to turn to do this. Usually a good dose of WD40 and tapping on the head of the key (straight in) will free it up temporarily. This would be the view from underneath the column after removing the two shroud halves.
