Have you tried taking the pressure off the steering lock by turning the wheel a little? It should move slightly in one direction or the other.

Try jerking the wheel to one side or the other while turning the key. This should free it.

SOURCE: my key is stuck in the ignition and won't come

Hi,
Sounds like your shifter mechanism is damaged, this is a problem I have been seeing lately with newer products, the shift interlock is not working, and will require a trip to the dealer, or a really good shop. The shifter will need to be disassembled, and there is a chance of deploying the airbag if not done correctly and the shifter is on the column, so please have it checked out by a professional. You can be seriously hurt in an airbag deployment.
It’s a relay between the shifter to the ignition switch went might have out.
Kindly let us know for any future assistance.
Thanks
Fame !

SOURCE: key won't turn in the ignition and the steering

In hope that you have the right key, put him in, try to turn the steering wheel a little bit at the same time you try to unlock the ignition.Sometimes it's possible that you've used your steering wheel as help wile getting out of the car. At this case, maybe the wheel lock snaps in, but the wheels are under pressure from the ground. Now you want to unlock your car at it seams that the key wont turn. The wheels get pressure from the ground, so the whole steering is under pressure and your steering wheel pressed against the locker block. If you try to turn the locked steering wheel, you'll see that it turns appr. 1" to one side. This is the needed space to unlock with the key. I hope that works in your case.

I have a 95 camaro, I put the key in ignition and it will not turn the ignition. It's like it's stuck. Replaced the ignition module and still cannot turn ignition. Help!


the ignition module (ignition switch on top of the steering column) normally doesn't get stuck.

things you can try:
steering wheel lock: (the pin gets a "burr" on it and locks everything up) wiggle steering wheel back and forth while trying to turn key.

transmission lock (parking on an incline will jam up the interlock)
push the shifter farther into park while trying to turn the key, or wiggle shifter

1998 Ford Escort steering wheel lock will not unlock. Seems jammed.


The steering wheel was turned when the key was removed. So when you try to turn on the key, turn the wheel one way and the other way to release the pressure on the key. The key should turn ok.
Hope this helps.

Keys stuck in ignition. its in park. ( and 3 days out of warrenty)


In the ring around the ignition switch (where your key is stuck) there is a recessed dimple. Get a ballpoint pen, insert into the dimple, hold it there while turning your key to the lock position (if it's not already there) and remove the key.

Hi there,
try turning the wheel to the right/left while turning the key in the ignition. You have to apply some force. Your car is probably outliving its road life.

Grand prix steering wheel locked key comes out


This situation is called "Torque Lock". The Solution is simply to Turn the Steering Wheel Slightly in the Opposite Direction to remove Pressure on the Steering Lock Pawl. Usually this occurs when turning off the Key while Pressure is Applied to the Steering Wheel from a slight "Roll-Back" or from the Power Steering being forced all the way to it's limit in one direction or the other. Always be sure that the Steering is allowed to relax prior to switching the Ignition Switch to the Locked Position. This is a very common problem most frequently experienced by women rather than men. Let me know if this helps!
