2010 Malibu key wont go into ignition switch


The tumblers may have collapsed. In which case you would have to replace the switch. They can be replaced if you can get the key in.. If you get a replacement you can try forcing it, if it locks up you will have to drill it out to get it replaced.

Cant get my key out of the ignition, everything works fine, just cant get the key out.


these puppies are notorious for that.

Did you try some panther ****? (i.e. wd-40 or PB Blaster into the ignition switch?)

for better results limit your number of keys attached to the key ring going into the ignition switch to a maximum of two or three..

Best regards

My ignition switch wont turn got a new 1 cant get the old 1 off what can i do


Hello woodsvincent...The GM ignition switches are designed to be removed with the key in the on position. The lock tumblers in the old switch are likely stuck and/or worn, and if your key itself is worn that makes it worse. Disconnect the negative battery cable, and try another key thats in better shape if possible. Spray a little lubricant in the switch, wiggle and work the key and see if you can get it to turn to the on position...if you can, leave it there!! The switch can be replaced if you can't get it to turn, but it's a lot more labor intensive.
Let me know how it goes...and i will further advise.
Good luck and i hope this helps...

Ignition switch locks and it cant be cranked


your key may overly worn and replaced, try jiggling the key and steering wheel at the same time. if that doesnt work try sraying a penetrating oil, like WD40 or PB Blaster, into the lock cylinder. it could also be the shift knob safety switch not disengaging or a faulty ignition switch
