How do I get my car keys out when it is stuck in my Nissan Micra K12 ignition?

Try to turn the steering wheel gently from side to side while pulling on the key. Quite often the steering lock engages with the steering wheel shaft and it makes it difficult to get the key out while the shaft puts pressure on the lock.

Where is the ignition switch located?

Its a simple 5 or 6 pisition switch located on the steering coloum derrictly behind the key switch where you but the key into the lock cylinder and this needs to be removed to repace the ignition switch along with trim parts that cover the steering coloum . Idon't have a manual for your year but its alwas a bit tricky because they don't people to be able to pop the key switch out and steal your vehicle so there speical bolts that need to be drilled out or break off when tightened to a spisific torque . A nd its hard to test the switch unless its out of the vehicle well don't kill the mesinger i just told the truth

How to remove and install ignition switch

remove the steering coloum trim. Turn the key to run position, Press locking button on back of steering coloum housing assembly, Remove lock cylinder, Disconnect the ground strap from lock preload spring ( if equiped ) . Make sure key is still in run position when you reinstall.

If the key is non functional and you cannot turn to run then you will need the tool in this picture197ca25.gif

Key will go in ignition switch but will not turn. Need to know how to remove ignition switch.

you must get the key to the ACC position. if the steering lock is on, as you turn the key wiggle the steering wheel back and forth at the same time turn the key but keep pressure on it as if you are trying to pull it out, it takes practise to get it, with the ignition key in the ACC position, with the coloum trims removed you should find a small hole in the casting of the lock assm. if not it may be thinly blanked off, just pry the casting away if needed, if found insert a thin rod like the end of an antenna mast into the hole and it will pop out. once out try not to pull the key out or the keys in the barrel will shoot off in all directions

these have whats called a vats system. the little black pellet in your key is a resistor. there are 14 different values. you will need to buy a new lock cyinder and key.

Having trouble starting my 2003 subaru wrx sedan.ignition sensor is not picking up key when put into barrel.sometimes it will straight away next time takes a couple of goes with the key. red key light...

The sensor is not in your key. It is in the Key Fob, unless your car is not equipped with keyless entry. If there is no key fob than your car is not equipped with vehicle immobilization.

How to get key out that is stuck in ignition

Remove steering column shroud(cover)and tap ignition barrel with small hammer while twisting key backwards and forwards,also turn steering wheel backwards and forwards sometimes this is enough to release key as the locking pins in barrel and the steering lock pin do sometimes jam.You will have to remove steering column shroud to replace ignition barrel if tapping/hitting it doesnt work anyway so its not a wasted effort.Good luck,let me know how it works out
