Question about 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue

Oldsmobile Intrigue: Key won't come out of ignition.

I have a 1998 Olds Intrigue. When I went to turn the car off today, the key won't turn to the off position so I can take the key out. It goes barely past the ACC position and then stops. I tried turning it on and off again. It starts fine, I just can't get it to go all the way to the off position so I can take the key out. I really don't want to risk my car being stolen since the keys are just sitting in it. Any help would be great! Thanks!

    have u tried wiggling the gear shift handle to make sure it is locked into park, if the linkage is out of adjustment or the handle is not quite in park you can't remove the key from the ignition lock.

I experienced this just last year and all I did was CAREFULLY push the shifter a bit harder into park and viola key went to off and came out. I later took apart the center console and had found that an electrical wire had gotten between the mechanism that gives permission to the ignition to turn to the off position and let go of the key.

I have a 2001 Olds Intrigue that won't start every once in a while. When it won't start the security light flashes so GM told me it was the passcode and I would have to change the ignition switch...


you can not bypass the security in that car, it is built into the main computer, they have problems with the ignition switch screwing up and the only way to start it while the light flashes is to turn the key to ON but don't crank engine, leave on for 10 to 15 minutes until light goes out then start car.

Oldsmobile 2001 intrigue Ignition main the key will not turn


Possible fix for the year of car is a worn key or tumbler or both. Check with Olds with your car vin number to cut a new key. If it's the tumbler, it will have to be re-pinned with new pins by locksmith or replaced with new tumbler. Rare occasions the turning of steering wheel frees the steering locks pressure hold on ignition tumbler. New tumbler can be reset to match door so as not to have two different keys.
