SOURCE: key is stuck in ignition in 2007 hyundai sonata

The problem is in the tumbler(s) inside the assembly. Before you do anything, try penetrating oil to see if that works... otherwise, the entire assembly will need to be replaced.

SOURCE: My key is stuck in

Hi,

-1) The tumblers in the mechanical side of the ignition switch can wear and bend. When this happens, the key can become difficult to turn or get stuck in the ignition. Answer is....Need to replace the mechanical side of the ignition switch...prices will depend upon your location and shop of choice, but the labor time is only a couple hours....

-2) I assume that this key was cut by a dealership...but, if it wasn't, that can cause the problem and allow the key to become stuck in the ignition...Answer is.....if the key can be worked loose, then re-cut a honda genuine key and you may be fine, otherwise, you will have to replace the mechanical side of the ignition switch and that will come with a new key...

-3) If the CEL is on, the first step is to pull the codes from the computer and find out what relation they have to this problem..Any quality shop would have started there first ...Answer is....after pulling the codes from the computer, fix the other problem, (probably trans. related) and that will fix your stuck key problem...

-4) If the gear selector lights are not working or the "PARK" indicator is not highlighted with the vehicle in park, then you have a faulty transmission range switch or the trans. range switch is out of adjustment and needs to be adjusted...Answer is....need to do a component test on the transmission range switch and verify if the switch is faulty, ecm is not communicating, or if it needs to be adjusted....

---The most common answer to this problem are either #1 or #4, but without the vehicle in your presence, we are limited on what tests we can do

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Changed ignition and door locks and now my hyundai sonata wont start


Your original keys had a computer chip in them that is programed to your car's computer and you will have to have a dealership reprogram your new keys to match your car's computer. or if you still have the original ignition lock you can reinstall it and contact your local dealership and give them your car's Vin# which is located on title or vehicle registration. And most dealerships can make you a new ignition key. Then your car should sta

I have a 2007 Hyundai Sonata...my steering wheel will not lock after turning off the ignition...however..the ignition is not stuck and I am able to insert my key and start the ignition


I have noticed this problem on various different vehicles...after you turn the car off and pull the key out, physically force the wheel to the right or left really hard...the wheel will lock. It just happens to not be in the correct position for the locking mechanism to engage where you last left the steering wheel...to experiment with this, try turning it back on, and turning the wheel just slightly to one side or the next and repeat until you find the "spot" that it engages easily...hope that helped

It's not "normal" - it's an ian ignition key lock freeze-up as a known issue; I finally had to get the entire assembly replaced on my Hyundai 2007 Sonata. It happened to me about 8 times and had to have the car towed 2xs....finally relaced it under the 100k warranty to get it fixed = it's covered. Take it into Service and have them fix it.
