I had this exact problem. The reason was the little push button on the automatic shifter that you press when you want to move it from Park - sometimes when you place it back to Park, it does not go out all the way - this prevents the key lock from releasing the key. Try to pull that button out all the way and it will release it. Cleaning around the button also helps.

Some times the shifters get off just a little bit so you cant get your key out. Try wiggleing the shifter while trying to turn the key back.

I have a 97 Pontiac Sunfire...The key is stuck in the ignition turned on...won't turn off...How do I get the key out?


Make sure the car is in park, if that does not work, put it in neutral and try. Search for a button under the ignition key to release the key. Also turn the steering wheel so it is not in a locked position. Good luck!

Ignition key gets stuck and car won't start


you might need to replace ignition key cylinder assy and replace current key, now, sometimes if this is a automatic transmission it might have problem with shifter interlock cable try moving shifter from park to first and back to park and try removing key again, but if key gets stuck and car won't start, does the key turns? does the engine cranks? are you using the correct key?

My 97 blazer wont start or turn over, now my key is stuck


Shake the shifter or press up past park and it will free the key. The pins in the ignition get easily stuck on GM vehicles. I would also assume that you may have a short or bad negative ground cable from motor to body, door switch wiring, or radio. Otherwise your altenator may be bad

1998 Disco-Unable to remove key from ignition.


If disco is automatic move the transfer lever from high to low box and back again firmly then the key will come out there is a safety feature on the autos to prevent the key being removed if the transfer box is not in either high or low correctly with most dicso;s the transfer shift lever is stiff. through lack of use .once it is pushed in properly the key will release it works every time and I have had four v8 autos
basically you cant remove the key because even though the gearbox is in park if the transfer gears are not fully home the park sensor on the gearbox thinks it is out of gear eg not in park so wont let you remove the key and leave the car out of gear in case it rolls away .Dan

97 Celica - Key stuck in accesory position


while in park, press shifter firmly even farther above park. Hold shifter and turn key.
The linkage may need adjusting. If this does not help the situation, then the pins inside the ignition are not getting pressed down because key is getting worn. You can try to tap around the ignition lightly with hammer to shake the pins loose.

Key won't come out of ignition


Its possible that the park switch is bad making the key stay in the ignition. Its a safety switch that will not let the key come out unless its in park. The switch will sometimes get stuck causing problems. I have also seen some issues with a bad battery not letting the key be released from the ignition.
