    But it's not the key. I drove home the night before. The next day I got in to go to town and there seems like something is blocking my key to go in. I can't see anything and I've tried everything to get my key in and it won't. I just got on here hoping maybe someone could tell me a "trick" to make it work!

    Thx! I'll try it!

    Well...seriously, what else can you do? I'm a journeyman mechanic, with 35 years experience........................Thats what I've had to do! Get a new key made.

    I can understand your frustration....It's got to be in the lock . The tumblers are stuck, jammed or the little springs are sprung. Have you tried any thing like "3 in 1" oil? They do make a Graphite spray for locks.

    Just make sure you don't use WD-40!!! It will dry out

    in a few days....making the whole thing a goooeey mess. Hope this helps.

When I park my car, a 2004 Aztek, it won't release the key. I have to start it up again and shift into other gears, then try it again. Sometimes it works, but sometimes not.


i would check the neutral safety switch, it will not release the key if it does not send the signal that the car is in park.

E320 key won't start 1st try


It is a key issue most likely, try unlocking the car and taking a little more time to insert key into igniton than you normally do to see if that works. It can be a coding/timing issue in the anti-theft logic and most times replacing the key is all that is needed. otherwise it is the EIS acronym for electronic ignition switch which is a major control unit for the starting and anti-theft system.

Key locked in ignition... can't get it out. HELP!


while in park, press harder up past park and it will disengage. Otherwise there is a pin on the ignition you can press and remove the entire ignition. You call also lightly tap gently around igniton piece to loose the pins inside that hold the key.

Ignition


i just had that same prob with mine. My Solution: NEW steering collum / key switch
what was happening was the key would get stuck in the igniton and i had to give it a little tap to get it to relese from the igniton. well, by giving it those taps, it popped a little plastic lever in the collum for the igniton switch. then the car would turn on with the key, but not turn off, i had to do the same thing that you had to do to to turn it off/on.

A steering collum later, and it was fixed
