Does the ignition switch turn? Did you remove the top and bottom cover of the column by removing the torx screws? If so, there is a hole in the top of the housing that the lock cylinder fits in. FIRST unhook the battery!! Push a small nail or pick into the hole while holding the key in the START position. Rotate the key back to the run position and pull the switch out.

Can't get key out of igntion on my 2004 endeavor

Assuming there's no button to press when taking the key out, try rocking the steering wheel to left and right at the same time as trying to remove the key. Sometimes the ignition lock engages at the same time as the steering lock.

try to steering all the way to left and hold on to that then insert the key pushing in and turn itclock-wise to counter clock wise, or try to steer on the right all the way.. same procedure until you are able to ignite the car. it was just locked when you parked your car without putting the wheels straight.

Car igntion will not turn anyway form my car to start and the steering wheel will not lock,the keys just sit there not moving in any direction for the car to start.

well if you can get the key in and out but cant turn i would first spray some lube into the tumblers but you have to make sure to get the stuff from the parts store thats for that second is this an automatic on the floor shift if it is it could be shift linkage other thing would be to call a lock smith to come and reset or rekey the lock and if the steering wheel wont lock its usally becuase the tumblers in the lcok are miss aligned or stuck or broken etc...

Igntion lock cylinder?? Im trying to do it on my 1993 cadillac fleetwood?? but im not sure what to take off first or how to install it?? i have my original keys and they usually dont work, once the key is...

It is usually the lock cylinder that is bad. Is the steering column round? And is it telescopic? It does require some special tools to change the cylinder.

most igntion switches are removed by tuning the key to the on position and inserting a pin punch or similar tool 1/8" in diameter into the hole on the underside of the housing, pushing the locking pin in while pulling the switch out.

My 2004 Impala won't start. Computer message is

try anoth igntion key, if not a good moble auto locksmith should be able to diag this, if he can't you'll need to tow it to your local GM dealership. It could be the igntion cylinder, but there is more items involved in the security system besides the igntion cylinder & you need the proper test equipment for testing.
