    The car is in park- tried jiggling the gears and putting my foot on the brake while I'm trying to pull key out of ignition at the same time. Thanks,

What should we do?


Hi there,
There is a (silly) safety lock on the ignition to stop it starting in gear, or the key being removed if not in park, and a sensible safety lock on the gear shift to stop kids letting it roll down a hill. Try putting your foot firmly on the brake, press the park release button beside the gear shift, while pulling the shifter out of park and back into park.
Getting the key out: Sometimes the steering wheel is placing pressure on the steering lock and key release mechanism, so try turning the steering wheel in any direction it can go while trying to release the key. It should come only out when you are in park.

On a 96 Jaguar XJ6, the gear selector sticks in the park position when startin


i presume this is a x300 series, you should hear a click from the gear selector area when you press the brake pedal with the ignition on, if not the park release soleniod is not working, the common cause of this is the brake pedal switch faulty, you can manualy release it by removing the little star shaped plug near the gear lever and inserting a small object like a screwdriver or your key, then select N and start engine,

My key is stuck in the ignition. Won't lock.


do not try to put the key in lock. if it will still start, then you will be able to replace the lock cylinder. if you rotate it to lock then you might not get it to turn again. as for the gear selector, there is a release on the shifter. some have a slot to stick a key and push down as you change gears. others you may have to take apart the console, and you will see the release lever.

Ignition key stuck in 2003 Grand Prix


If you have an auto trans, check to make sure the car is in park. If the shift lever is even slightly misaligned, (even though the indicator says PARK) your key won't come out.
Try spraying the tumbler with powdered graphite.
It is a common problem, and I found two possible answers. The ignition plunger in the ignition switch or the Park release solenoid located in the center console. I've heard that when the solenoid sticks it prevents your key from being released. I have not fixed mine yet, I just use the inside of a ball point pen to release the plunger by sticking it in the access hole under the ignition.
