Key will not turn to full off position

06' chevy aveo key will not turn to full off position. Tried turning the wheel, checked fuses, cannot put car into gear without using shift override button. Is there something under the console, or a fuse I'm missing ?

There is a shift release button on your gear shift, I had the same problem with my 04. When I took it apart, I saw that there is a switch that lets the car know it's in park and you can remove the key. However, the bracket that holds this switch in place is very weak and tends to break. you will need to get that replaced. If you know someone who can work on cars though, you can have them rig it to stay in place, thats what I did and it has worked fine since 07. you say it's an 06 if you have a warrenty on it use it now.

Try moving the steering wheel around. It may be in the lock position!

I have a chevy cobalt and the key wont go into the ignition, ive tried turning the wheel. I thought the streaing wheel might be locked but I have full movement. I need help!!!


Make sure the part where you insert the key is turned all the way to the off position, if this is not lined up correctly it may keep you from inserting the key - just a guess but may be worth looking in to.

Had a similar problem with my Chevy Cargo Van..tumblers in igition old and worn, also noted key/wheel problem like yours. Be extra careful about putting in Park, keeping tension off steering wheel, and being sure key goes in smoothly. Sometimes you just have to jiggle the key and take tension off the wheel. (Beats replacing the ignition locks, etc.)

I own a 2005 chevy aveo. The car had been sitting out the majority of the day not being used and the temp outside was minus 23. I went to start my car and the key turned properly but nothing happened, no...


so my understanding is you turned wheel and locked wheel and now cannot turn key ? need to turn the wheel some to remove the pressure off the lock and then turn key while holding wheel.

Cannot remove key from ignition


I have a similar problem in my 2006 Aveo. When turning off the vehicle, the key will not come out completely unless I "nudge" the gear shifter slightly to the right; this allows the key to turn freely and come out. Similarly, when shifting out of park, I must nudge the shifter slightly to the right until I hear a click. Then I have to quickly push it further to the right in order to shift out of park. Apparently this sort of thing is a common problem in the 2005-06 model Aveo. While I haven't gotten mine fixed, I have researched some things you might try... first, I would look into the BTSI (brake transmission shift interlock) solenoid. Apparently it has been a common cause of this problem. Second, you might try removing the fuse for your radio... I read that one person that was able to do this as a temp. fix. Hope this helps.
