Put the car in reverse and then pull the key out.
the old cars had an ignition lock that was an anti theft help that required it to be in reverse to get it out.

Ok 03 Yukon, at first not running but after being towed home it hit a bump and all the lights came on. Took it off the wrecker it started right up, but nothing electrical in cab works, and now it won'


It might possibly be the ignition switch, or the linkage to it.

They reason I suspect this is your statement, "I bumped the key forward and it will engage the starter but still wont shut off"

The part where you insert the key is really a "cylinder lock", that then transfers the turning motion to the actual "ignition switch"

My wife had a Pontiac (also a GM product) that the cylinder lock had a linkage that went to the ignition switch (similar to a sliding electric switch, with the 4 positions, ACC, OFF, RUN, START), which was bolted on further down the steering column, underneath the plastic covering on the column.

Another person here had a similar problem, and after suggesting this, he wrote back that he removed his steering column cover and found a screw opposite the cylinder lock that had loosened and fallen out.

So you could try removing the steering column cover and see if all is ok.

Also, when you have it opened up, observe the action as you turn the key, as the problem could be the cylinder lock itself.

Turned the key and the car did not start, car was not firing and no noise from the starter ... then turned the key and the car started ... went out for drive and came home ... turned the key again and...


Hmmm it could be the ignition itself, sometimes the inside parts wear out and do not engage as they should. The next indicatioin that its your ignition is the key will stick in it from time to time. Als, I know this sounds wacky, but when it wont start, put your foot on the brake, put the car in neutral and try to start the car. See if this works also.

04 town and country, ignition key wont turn, have to sit there and play around (wiggle) key, b4 it finally turns on, after a few minutes.


It is possible that your key is warren out. you could have a different key made ,some times it can take a few times to git it right, if the key is badly worn out,but give it a few tries .if all fails you will have to replace your ignition tumbler's [key lock cylinder] if after trying the key ,please feel free to check back, ask if you have any further questions, Thank you.

2002 Pontiac Grand prix wont start; unable to remove key


On many cars, if the battery is dead, it locks the key in the ignition. Put a battery charger on the car or replace the battery and give it a shot.

Good luck.
