SOURCE: Key stuck in ignition of 1976 chevy corvette stingray 350 auto

If I understand, the key will not rotate to all of the normal positions? If this is true, then I would guess that the trani didn't fully return to the park position please verify, You can check the ignition switch(the one that is half way down the steering column) for defects. Is there any binding, does the rotate freely? Thank you; good luck.

No power to my gmc and now the key wont come out of the ignition?


It has to have power to remove the key. Jump it with another battery or charger. If you have power from the battery and no power to the inside. Check main fuses under the hood. If those are good, put power to the cigarette light, This will get the key out. Most likely have to replace the under hood fuse panel.

2010 holden cruze diesel. stuck in park, keys are stuck in ignition. have no brake tail lights no windscreen washer 12 volt socket in car and the boot is locked. please help.


The stuck in park is easy disconnect the linkage at the transmission and move the selector red by two notches (by hand) this will place the transmission in neutral if there is resistance chock the wheels release the handbrake and rock the car ( back and forward to take load off the parking parking pawl which is stuck) no electrics is because of the ignition position remove the ignition switch from the column this isolates from the ignition lock and manually move the slide until the engine starts (make sure the hoot & hand brake are applied in case you ******* up the selector job and left it in gear. once the engine starts reconnect the transmission linkage. restart the engine and run the selector through the gears if all is OK.either cut the old ignition lock off the steering column and replace or get a locksmith to remove the key and then re-cut a new key from the spare or from the manufacturers code. all done

My key is stuck in the ignition of my 1993 Saturn and won't move or come out. I thought maybe I had left my lights on last night since the car didn't start and the battery seemed to be dead, but then


Your ignition could be stuck. That happened to me on my 2002 Chevy Malibu with 150,000 miles on it. The ignition sometimes gets stuck and freezes up. You'll have to pull it out and put a new one in. You can use the new key or have it re keyed to fit your old keys.

2007 BMW 750li key stuck in Ignition


Sounds like the neutral safety switch might be going bad.... The switch was originally designed as a safety feature to prevent starting the car in gear.... now it`s one component in a system with multiple interlocks (yet another byproduct of our litigation-prone society). The switch itself could be faulty, or possibly the linkage is out of adjustment, causing the gear selector to not fully engage the PARK position

What if jiggling steering wheel does not correct stuck ignition?


Pull or push the auto transmission gear selector slightly further in each direction from the "park" position. The key can not be removed unless the car is in park. If the gear selector is not in the exact spot needed - the ignition will not move to allow the key to be removed. Likewise, if the car battery is dead, you may not be able to remove the key until you connect to another car with jumper cables to energize the ignition circuits.

Good luck!

Ignition stuck key won't turn to start car!


Gear shift is not totally in the park position - had the same problem with a 2011 Acura TL - a rubber band kept the gear shift lever from totally seating in the park position.

I changed the battery in the car and it still wouldn't start and the windows don't work. the only thing that work is the radio. I can't even get it to change gears


Do the ignition lights come, Lights, etc??? It could be the ignition switch, maybe the eletrical switch is stuck in Aux even though you are turning the key in the barrel, you may not be turning the electrical switch underneath. Hope this is helpful. Ian
