SOURCE: Key wont turn to lock position for the steering wheel?

Auto trans must be in park if it is then I believe a relay or switch has failed. Check owner manual for possible fuse.

SOURCE: my key will not turn,

your key is probably worn down and needs replaced, but you can try spraying a penetrating oil (WD40 or PB Blaster) into the lock cylinder this sometimes works

try tapping the lock cylinder with a small hammer...some times this will jar the tumblers and allow it to turn...if this works the lock cylinder is going bad and will need replaced

Key ignition wont turn


APPLY BRAKE AND MAKE SURE STEERING WHEEL IS CENTERED. IF IT IS PARKED SO THERE IS PRESSURE ON THE FRONT WHEELS AND HOLDING THE STEERING WHEEL HARD RIGHT OR LEFT IT WILL MAKE THE KEY VERY HARD TO TURN.

2005 Volvo S40 with key stuck in ignition. It turns off but key doesn't come, out of the steering wheel. Please advise needed, if lock change is required estimated cost of part and labour please.


Some ignition system locks will not release the key unless you push in towards the column while turning further off. It is a safety device to stop in advertent removal of the key while moving. Try that first.

Ignition key will not turn.


This happens to me sometimes because the pressure of the steering lock is enough to keep me from being able to turn the key. Try moving the steering wheel while turning the key, if that doesn't work, flip the key over and try again (unless it is a one sided key), if that doesn't work, then you are likely looking at a bad lock cylinder and it will have to be replaced.

My key doesn't turn in the ignition, its automatic and the shifter and wheel wont move either. Everything is locked how do I unlock it? help pls?


If turning the steering wheel to the left or right doesn't allow the key to turn, it sounds like your tumblers in the lock cylinder have failed. Unfortunately, there is no way to know when this is going to happen, but eventually, it happens. Not a real expensive fix. Replace the ignition/lock cylinder.

Key won't turn in ignition


On many vehicles, the key locks the steering wheel. If the wheel is turned, it can keep the key from turning. While trying to turn the key, push the steering wheel hard to the right and if that doesn't work, push the steering wheel hard to the left.

Steering wheel will only turn slightly in either direction, can't turn the key either way it is a 2000 Chrysler Voyager


most cars have a steering lock that engages when you turn off the car. If you try wiggling the wheel while you turn the key, that might free up your steering. If just wiggling it a little does not work, try pulling it one way and turning the key, giving it a little force turning the wheel (sometimes the wheel locking mechanism gets stuck) ... if it still doesn't work, try turning the wheel the other way and turning the key. If you are still locked up .. you'll probably need to see a mechanic about it. Hopefully the wheel lock is just a little stuck and you can free it up yourself -- it's free that way :-)

Key will not go into ignition, car is completely locked up


Try jiggling your steering wheel lightly at first then pretty hard if that doesn't work. Volkswagens have issues a lot of times with their steering wheel lock. I have a friend that's been to the dealership and almost gave up on the lease.

My starter is stuck in ignition lock, and we can't get the key to start the truck. How do we get the ignition out of LOCK?


The steering wheel is in a position that will not release the key you will have to turn the steering wheel as hard as you can to the left and try to turn the key if that doesn't do it go to the right. that should get your key out.
