Ignition ley got locked. ket wont turn


I have an 2002 Escape. I can think of three possible issues:
You're using the wrong key. Duh.
You have a bad ignition switch. Extremely unlikely.
Your steering wheel is pushing against the steering lock. I just went out to my Escape to confirm this on mine. This happens sometimes if you park against a curb, or parking block. The steering wheel is pushed against the lock pin, and the key can not be turned.
Trying turning the sterring wheel back and forth. There should be some play or shake. If no play, turn the steering wheel a little harder in either direction until it moves a little, hold it, and try the key.

For the disbelievers, this can happen on most cars. Go to your car and hold some pressure on turning the steering wheel. Try turning your key from off to start.

My key is stuck in my ignition of a honda civic lx 2002. It is on park and it starts just the key wont come out. what can i do?


The Key had locked into the slot of the lock settings. Do not force the key or use force because we will end up with a twisted key which will be much more diffficult to come out.
I hope you have not done so. Just softly start the car and reverse before turning the sterring and do another park, This is to make the inner locking section to free off- you can do so even in park but start to do this to engage the power steering. switch off and by a sligth shift of the steering remove the key--- While removing the key make a left/right action of the steering .
If the key is still locked in , there is a possiblity that the key is twisted within and must be looked into carefully so as not to break the key within. Please use some cleaning oil and turn key left /right with the steering moved in opposite direction.
Hope this works with this small help. Good day

Chrysler 2003 ignition key wont turn


your key may be overly worn and need replaced, but try jiggling the key and steering wheel at the same time. if that doesnt work try sraying a penetrating oil, like WD40 or PB Blaster, into the lock cylinder. it could also be the gear shift safety switch not disengaging or a faulty ignition switch
