Its probably a worn key try another key or its emergancy key if you still have it or the ignition barell is worn its not that expensive about 30 pound or so to replace but a bit of a chew to get old one out

SOURCE: ignition locked. Key won't turn.

Hi,
Yes when you replaced the batteries in the FOB this will have cleared the system identification for the keys.
So have these reset to your vehicle and then you will have no problems.

1997 Pontiac gran am,cant turn the key to off position,dash lights stay on ,but I can restart car


Sounds like the tumblers inside the ignition, very common with older cars and worn keys. You will need a locksmith for this...it is cheaper than a dealer...they will also cut a new key at the same time. If the key is a "smart" key has a chip then they will have to reprogram the new key and that can be expensive.

I have a 2008 corolla. It has an auto light when the car needs an oil change. I need to know how to reset it.


Look in your owners manual and go to the part that explains the different symbols on your dash. Look for that service reminder and it should tell you what page to go to to learn more about that. Somewhere there should be some wording to the effect that "When you have your car serviced by a certified Toyota dealer they will reset it for you. In the event that someone other does your maintenance then this is the procedure to reset......."

I cant turn the ignition or move the steering wheel on my 2003 nissan altima. When I insert the key I get the usual sound but I cant turn the key at all, and the steering wheel seems like its stuck.


i think there is a ignition problem , might try replacing it , of course you cant turn the steering if the key wont turn , its a theft prevention device.

Ignition switch problems


Not trying to be Smart,Are you using the correct key? If so,Try turning the steering wheel from side to side while trying to turn the key. Sometimes the internal locking system will be in a bind and keep the ignition switch from turning.
