How do i fix a 2006 Pontiac G6 key stuck in the ignition


Two things do this. First the key and lock set is worn out. Next would at the shifter, The cable is stretched or broken. If it is electrical, then the release in the handle is sticking or solenoid is bad. Most likely yours is electrical, Most times I clean them, lube the them with dry graphite and all is good. But you have to get the shifter out first. Remove the console.

Key will not turn off completely and shifter does not lock.


THE KEY WILL NOT TURN OFF COMPLETELY BECAUSE THE SHIFTER HAS TO BE IN THE PARKED POSITION TOTALLY. YOU HAVE HAVE SHIFT INTERLOCK CONTROL SOLENOID THAT HAS GONE ARRAY DUE TO FAILURE OR ELECTRICAL ISSUES. PROBABLY THE LATER.

Key is stuck in ignition


the shifter lever has a plastic shaft. at the bottom of the shaft there is a metal pin that is pressed through it that presses against a switch that will then activate the solinoid which allows key to be able to come out of the cylinder. the problem is the plastic shaft cracks and pin loosens, so switch will not be pressed by the pin. GM only sells the whole shifter assembly. takes some mechanical ability to change this shifter mechanism. good luck
