SOURCE: Key stuck, won't turn, won't shift...replace ignition switch?

Try to shift your key in either direction while try to turn your steering in left and right direction. May be its steering lock which is attached to your ignition key preventing shifting of key. If not, then its obviously your ignition that has gone.
If you decide to change ignition then as a last try Dip your key in lubricating oil and then insert in ignition to turn it on. May be it can help.

if an ignition switch fails, sometimes you can jiggle the key and it will start right up. its very hard to tell. but if you can start it by bypassing the ignition switch, then its the switch itself. go to this site for more detailed info--- aa1car.com/library/1999/cm119948.htm---this page should help. click on top link.

You may have a bad ignition switch or bad starter solenoid. I would check to see if the starter solenoid is getting power on the small wire when you turn the ignition switch to the starting position.

Ignition switch / Lock Barrel seems loose.


Its more time consuming than you would think. It involves the following tasks;1) Disassembling the lower dashboard, below the steering wheel 2) Actually replacing the lock, which is difficult because of special allen tools required, and locating the release pin. 3) carefully reconnect the wiring (simple task) 4) changing ALL the other locks, if you desire to have a master key again.( about 5 of them)

Car dies while driving, now it won't start sometimes


Could be a fuel pump that is going bad. Some times when fuel pumps go bad they cavitate and pump not just gas but also air. If you get too much air in the line and not enough gas the car won't start. Have a mechanic check your fuel line pressure.

Key stuck in ignition of 1996 Toyota 4Runner


This truck has a switch in the shifter assembly that tells the ignition the truck is in Park or not. If the shifter doesn't hit that switch right this can happen. Also, there is a component in the ignition (a solenoid) that allows the key to be released if the Park switch is pushed. To be sure it's one of these two things, try this.... Get the key stuck, then disconnect the battery. If the key comes right out, it's either the switch or the solenoid. Good luck!

2003 pontiac sunfire, key in ignition nothing. tried jumping, nothing. Left for help, came back car started right up 4 or 5 times, Now nothing. Why? ty, Sue


Sounds like a short in the ignition switch. Next time it does it, try shaking and turning the steering wheel while you're turning the key to start. If this doesn't work, try cycling the switch on and off several times. Chances are, this is your problem.
