If this steering wheel locks with the key, put your foot on the brake pedal and try to rock the steering wheel as you are turning the key. That may release it.

My chevy cobalt key will not come out of the ingnistion and the car is on...I have a stick shift....reAlly need help bad


there should be a plastic piece under the steering column, by your lap, take the cover piece off. And put your thumb in the hole and poke around until you feel a button that should release the key! This is an answer given to another driver of a cobalt. See if this helps. Otherwise, pull out your manual and look for key release button.

Wont turn over when i turn the key


There are a number of possibilities.
1) Dead battery. If the lights are OK and don't dim when you attempt to crank, then the battery may be OK.
2) Bad starter relay. If the battery is OK and you don't hear a click when you turn the key, the relay may be bad. They are cheap to replace.
3) If the ignition switch where you are turning the key is bad, then it won't start. To diagnose this, wiggle the key and see if that helps. Also move the key into different positions to see if one will cause it to start.
4) Your car is equipped with an electronic start inhibitor (immobilizer). The keys you received with your car are specially coded. The code in the key is transmitted to an antenna in the ignition switch where it is compared to the code stored in the start inhibitor module. The car can only be started if a properly coded key is used. If two of the keys to your car are close together, e.g., on the same key ring, when you try to start the car, this could cause interference in the immobilizer system and result in the car not starting. If this should occur, remove one of the keys from the key ring before trying to start the car again.

I just got a key for my 1998 cadillac sts but it will not start the car what do i do? It will open the doors and the alarm goes off but the car will not start.


Leave key in ignition and turn to ON (do not start) Leave in on position for exactly 10 minutes. After 10 minutes is up and your anti-theft light is off, then immediately start the car.
Sometimes the key also need to be reprogrammed for the car.
insert the key and turn the key to "on". The DIC will say "Remove Key, Starting Disabled", and the security light will remain on.

approx. 10 minutes later. Remove the key. wait 10 seconds and repeat this another two times, for a total of 30 minutes "key-in" time.

Now insert your key and start the engine.

To learn additional keys:
Start the engine up with a working key. Shut the engine off, and within 10 seconds, insert the next key you want to learn and turn it to "ON". When the security light goes out, that key is programmed. Repeat for the next key, up to 10 keys can be programmed per car.

Key stuck in ignition


Be sure its all the way in park or try neutral.Its possible that security system does not recognize the key. Is security light flashing or on steady? Shut all doors and windows,trunk,hood, turn off all accessory's,roll down drivers window, turn key off and remove for at least 1 minute, insert key into ignition, try to start leaving key to run position for 20 minutes, turn key to off,wait 15 seconds, try to start again leaving key to run, wait 20 minutes, turn key off,wait 15 seconds, try to start, again leaving key to run, wait 20 minutes, turn key off, wait 15 seconds, try to start. This should relearn key code. It may relearn after 1 learn cycle and start if system is ok. Hope this helps and that the weather is dry and warm for this procedure! This is not always a fix, but works most of the time.
