Started car, went to turn it off and key won't turn off or come out. I pulled the ignition fuse to get it to turn off. Before pulling fuse, much of the electrical system wouldn't work either. If I put the fuse back in, it will turn to start, still many electrical components won't work.

    Thank you. Would that also account for the odd electrical issues?

2002 mazda mpv, key stuck in ingition and it is in park , but the key wont turn all the way to lock, it will only go as far as acc?


Mazda MPV have problems with failing gear shift change assembly ( includes park sensor micro switch)

Pull the fuse for the hazard lights ( 10amp) - if the key comes out, then the switch is defective.

Fix the problem by installing a new change lever assembly - part number for 2000 and 2001 MPV's is LC62-46-10XE with MSRP of $246.90. 2002-2004 would be a LD47-46-10XB with MSRP of $250.40.

2001 pontiac sunfire wont start


I have had the exact same problem. There is an ignition lock that probably went off. There is a fuse box under the hood. The fuse that says ignition on it pull it out and put it back in. This should reset the ignition lock. Its a safety feature because the car thinks that someone was trying to tamper with it.
