Keys and Locks when worn will do this as will duplicate keys made not so perfectly. While keeping mild pressure on the key in the direction of removal, jiggle the steering wheel back and forth vigorisly. If you cannot get the shifter into park in oreder to remove the key, same deal, jiggle rapidly. Then see a lock smith

Good Luck!

Wiggle the key. You might try some graphite or spray lubricant in a pinch. Might work but honestly sounds like something is broken since you shouldn't be able to move the shifter

I have a 95 camaro, I put the key in ignition and it will not turn the ignition. It's like it's stuck. Replaced the ignition module and still cannot turn ignition. Help!


the ignition module (ignition switch on top of the steering column) normally doesn't get stuck.

things you can try:
steering wheel lock: (the pin gets a "burr" on it and locks everything up) wiggle steering wheel back and forth while trying to turn key.

transmission lock (parking on an incline will jam up the interlock)
push the shifter farther into park while trying to turn the key, or wiggle shifter

My key is stuck in the ignition in the on position and I cant turn my 2009 hhr off. How can I get my key to turn and come out?


FIRST make sure that your shifter is all the way up into the PARK position. Then make sure that the button on the shifter is not sticking. This button operates a switch that energizes a solenoid to keep the key from returning all the way back to the OFF position. If the button is stuck in, sometimes it can be released by tapping on the shift lever. This is a VERY COMMON problem.

Below is a link to a video that explains what I am talking about here.

Shifter stuck and key will not come out of ignition


yes, there is a light and they may have just forgotten to plug it back in, it should be accessible from the small compartment next to the gear shift, if not, remove the surrounding console and you should be able to find it. there should be 2 lights in there. 1 for the small compartment and another for the gear shift. if it is plugged in check the globe to see if its blown. as for the "little shift interlock mechanism" i would suggest taking it back to the shop and asking them to make sure everything was fastened and tell them you can hear it rattling around. you never know, it may be the wires and plug for your gear shift light.

Ignition Key Stuck


We had the same problem, with the same diagnosis. It turned out to be that the shifter was not fully forward in the park position!

The mechanics we called said it was the Shifter Interlock Solenoid as well (but an honest mech. actually solved the prob. - by pushing the shifter all the way forward - and didn't charge a dime).
