Question about 2004 Pontiac Aztek
Got home from a trip and parked the car and attempted to get my car key out of the ignition. I found it was locked and unable to be retrieved. It would not go all the way towards me and thus placed a strain on the battery and now I have car keys stuck in the ignition AND a dead battery! Help? I have tried ramming the automatic shift up and down several times to see if I could get it to disengage the ignition switch. Didn't work though. We have a 2004 Pontiac Aztek with problem getting key out of ignition. Found hole in steering column. Used pencil to release key. Took console apart & found switch attached to switch lever. Wonder if this was switch referred to in recommendations. When gear shift is put in park, door locks click. Is this the switch we need to check wires on? Could solenoid wires be a problem? Any ideas what else to look for? Any simple way to take cover off steering column to check solenoid?
While in park, press harder up past park and it will disengage. Otherwise there is a pin on the ignition you can press and remove the entire ignition. You call also lightly tap gently around igniton piece to loose the pins inside that hold the key.
