My 2003 lincoln aviator key won't turn


Try looking at the Brake lights when the brakes are pressed. There is a switch on some of the brake pedal levers that sends a signal to release a Lock-out for the Ignition.

If the brake lights do not work, the brake lever switch is out of position or broken.

This is a common problem with many Ford designs and occurs when the drivers feet hit the switch.

Key won't come out of ignition on 1999 vw jetta


IGNITION KEY WILL NOT RELEASE

It can be faulty ignition lock cylinder. I suggest to wiggle the steering wheel a bit and see if the key gets released out. If that is not helping then first turn steering wheel to right and try removing the key, or next turn steering wheel to left and see if you can remove the key.

----------

Spray wd-40 in the ignition key hole and let it remain there for few minutes, after that once again try to remove the key and see if that helps.

---------

But if that is not helping then ignition lock cylinder has to be removed out and key has to be manually removed.

Steering wheel won't lock, key won't come out


If the ignition normally only locks with the vehicle in park position, then check the switch on the gear lever mechanism is working.
If not, then you'll have to jiggle and wiggle that key out or replace the ignition lock.

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.

Cranks and then goes dead


First check your fuel pressure it should be 41-47 psi with key on and engine off if its below 32 psi replace the fuel pump and filter.If fuel pump checks out to be good then take ignition switch out and check for burned ignition switch wires and worn ignition key tumblers and ignition lock cylinder.These cars are known for faulty ignition switches and ignition lock cylinders.Ignition switch gets to hot then it won't start until it cools off.

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.
