SOURCE: like others, my key is stuck in the ignition of my

There are a couple things that could cause your stuck key. The first and most common is the steering wheel lock is being forced up against the locking mechanism due to torque from the front wheels being turned to much one way or the other when you stopped and parked it. Think of trying to open a door while it is being pushed on. To fix this you must turn the steering wheel away from the lock while you turn the key.

The other problem, which is more common to your cady is an issue with the shift lock.. There may even be something in your owner's manual called "shift lock release procedure", check page 2-32.

Make sure the button on the shifter isn't stuck. Also try pushing the shift lever forward while turning the key. If this doesn't work you may need to contact Cadillac and ask about the TSB concerning this problem because I know there is one out on it.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: what do when my key gets stuck in my ignition to

If the steering will lock is on take pressure off the lock by turning the steering wheel one way or the other. Otherwise if it just jams up oil the hole where the key goes then this will help the tumblers from getting stuck. Next would be have a new key made. If that doesn't do it replace the lock. Good luck.

Make sure transmission is in Park. Key will not come out until ignition is fully off and ignition will not turn fully off until gear selector is in park

Won't start key stuck in ignition gas and temp gauge not working


this sounds like something is draining the battery like a bad alternator. if you install a new battery the car will run until the car drains the battery due to a bad alternator or bad wiring, these cars are all electronic so without a good battery you cant open door or start, take a look at battery and if it is low or dead again then have the charging system checked.

My key is stuck in the ignition of my 2006 cadillac cts


2005 CTS 3.6 Dead battery, key stuck, service anti theft and nothing happens when you turn key, Ttried everything, ECM reset, key memory reset, charged battery to 12.7 volts, locked door w remote and opened w key, anyway you get the idea. After 3 days of online reading and trying, THIS IS WHAT WORKED, 1. put key into on position 2. removed sarter relay from front fuse panel 3. jumped 1st pin closest to fender and passenger seat with pin that is closest to motor and front fender. I used a paper clip and just made contact long enough for car to start. ran car for five minutes and took key out and everything went back to normal. then I took car to advance auto parts to have engine light reset. if car does not go back to normal you have ECM (car computer) failure. video on YouTube under "no crank, no start"

Hi . Entered our garage on an angle & indicator light did not switch off for quite a few hours before we noticed it . Does this frequently if dont come in to park straight. Battery on our cts cadillac...


When the battery went dead, it activated the anti theft system. That is why you can't get the key out of the ignition. If you do get it out, you still won't be able to start the car. Call the dealership and ask them what your options are, in the meantime, go to this website and read about the security sydtem: http://newtockies.ca/vatsbypass.

Can't remove key from ignition. Battery seems to be dead but sparks when I put the charger on. Still can't remove key.


Tumblers broke in the ignition and have caused the ignition to "lock up". You need to replace the ignition assembly.

How to get key out that is stuck in ignition


Remove steering column shroud(cover)and tap ignition barrel with small hammer while twisting key backwards and forwards,also turn steering wheel backwards and forwards sometimes this is enough to release key as the locking pins in barrel and the steering lock pin do sometimes jam.You will have to remove steering column shroud to replace ignition barrel if tapping/hitting it doesnt work anyway so its not a wasted effort.Good luck,let me know how it works out
