Make sure you dont have alot of tension on lock by moving wheel as well as turning key because alot of cars wont allow you to turn key when there is force on the steerig coloum

My 2006 lincoln navigator is stuck in the 'park' position.

So is mine! I know this isn't a real solution, but I realized if I force it, I can get it into Drive. It goes from Drive to Reverse and Park easily, the problem is getting it out of Park. I didn't drive it for weeks because of this, then I had to drive the Navigator to get my 200+ pound dog to the vet and tried again. I was mad and pulled hard and it went right into drive.

My key is stuck in the ingnition and it won't come out- we have had to bypass the battery and make a switch to turn off my car but it still works like normal to start it

First off , check to make sure the key position in the off position, then try pulling it out.. Second thing you do is get some pliers, to help your grip on the key, and pull back hard while wiggleing up and down..(NOT SIDE TO SIDE!) It should release.

The ignition is stuck on the ON position on my '91 firebird. The key will not turn forward or backward but the key is able to be pulled out. Need help please!

Does it have air bags? If not remove horn cover, you need replace the key tumbler, with key in ignition you should see a small tab ( metal) button that you need to push in and at the same time kinda turn the key just slightly and pull out. have new ingnition tumbler with you and install is basically the reverse.

My 1997 audi a4 the ignition key is stuck. what

OK first thing- Car has to be in park to pull the key from the ingnition. if it is and you still cant pull it, rock the wheel back and forth alittle (sometimes the columb lock doesnt lock properly and you cant release the key until it locks, rocking the wheel usually fixes this problem). and the last possibility is that the tumblers in your ignition have broken, when this happens you cant pull the key from the ignition because you cant turn the key back to the off possition all the way. when this happens you don't want to pull the key because you risk not being able to put it back in the ignition later and are forced to replace the ignition so you can drive your car. However if the tumblers are indeed broken you will have to replace the ignition anyway, atleast by leaving the key in it you can still drive the car until its replaced

Can't turn the key, can't move out of park.

Yes the steering wheel lock is jamming your key lock.

try to remember whihc way the wheel was turned when parking. pull down real hard in same direction and turn key.

sometimes you have the pull on wheel very hard in either direction while turning key,****DO NOT FORCE KEY only the wheel/
