SOURCE: key stuck in ignition but it will turn, and

you most likely have a bad key switch cylinder assembly. you can try to spray wd40 solvent into the switch before you have the switch replaced,but sometimes it's a switch replacement that repairs the problem. have you inspected your ignition key to look for damage to the key itself? try a spare key to make sure it's the key,and not the key switch. you can also try turning the key while turning the steering wheel at the same time to get the key to work.sometimes the switch locks when parked in a bind,such as on a hill,or against a curb and so on. try this 1st before you have the ignition switch replaced. AAA auto club,if you're a member covers part of the replacement costs for a replacement switch also. you may have coverage through a cell phone also.one more thing to try, if you have a tilt steering column,try to reposition the steering wheel to see if you can get the key to turn. remember never force it enough to break your key off into the switch! thank you for choosing fixya.com!

You probably interrupted the antitheft system. This link explains.

2008 Mazda tribute won't start easily and normally anymore. Sometimes only starts when I turn the key all the way very hard while putting pressure on it . It's like pressing the key inward whi


It sounds like it is a linkage issue between the lock cylinder and the ignition switch. The ignition switch is located on the steering column and there is usually a rod that connects the lock to the switch. These switches have some adjustment, so you should be able to loosen the bolts and move the switch up the column. Just remove the panels below the steering column and look for a bunch of wires plugged in towards the bottom of the steering column.

Our 2010 Taurus is keyless and won't turn over to start. Lights come on but wont turn over. WHat's the problem?


I'm assuming that this vehicle is a push to start, correct? Do you need to press the foot brake to start the vehicle? Is the vehicle in Park or neutral?
If all of this is working properly, check the fuses under the hood and in the passenger compartment, to the left of the steering column, lower dash.

My 2001 Oldsmobile Alero won't shift out of park.


Before you go too far, your problem might be as simple as mine was. The gear shift knob had slipped and was not down far enough on the shaft to engage the release mechanism.

Can't switch interior heat from dash to defrost on 2001 montana


The problem will be on the other side under and just to the right of the steering column. This is kind of a pain to repair. Pull the lower cover off from under the steering column. Watch the lever on the hvac case move as you click the position switch to defrost and back. It most likely is hanging up and not moving into defrost position. Reach up there and just move the lever or arm a little and it will probably finish it's movement. The arm has worn to a point where it has a little slot in it that is preventing or stopping the movement.
I have repaired this but you gotta watch it several times. The lever is spring loaded so you need to watch closely or you won't get it back together right.
I got the thing out and smoothed the worn place where the lever started working again. It's not real easy to get out so be careful. Can't really tell you anymore than that.
