Key won't come out of ignition on 1999 vw jetta


IGNITION KEY WILL NOT RELEASE

It can be faulty ignition lock cylinder. I suggest to wiggle the steering wheel a bit and see if the key gets released out. If that is not helping then first turn steering wheel to right and try removing the key, or next turn steering wheel to left and see if you can remove the key.

----------

Spray wd-40 in the ignition key hole and let it remain there for few minutes, after that once again try to remove the key and see if that helps.

---------

But if that is not helping then ignition lock cylinder has to be removed out and key has to be manually removed.

Electrician has miswired the car or didn't properly repair the short. Very hard to know what he did wrong. Will he not fix it himself?

My key won't go into ignition on my 2007 jetta


Try moving wheel back and forth while putting key in. Or if thats not it, take a screw driver flathead and try to turn ignition both ways just a bit. Sometimes those key cylinders dont go back into the open key position. Try that as you are moving the whhel as well. but my car does the same thing in the cold, and a screw driver seems to do it every time. Good luck let me know how you make out. PS Im guessing that ther is not something stuck inside ignition?? Good luck

I changed the key batteries for my 1999 BMW 323i after they died. Afterwards the remote unlock and lock won't work, the car also won't start but it can turn over/on and the radio and the lights...


stick the key in the ignition, turn it to the on position, remove it within 5 seconds, then hold the unlock button down and press the lock button 3 times within 10 seconds and release both buttons. The doors should lock/unlock to give you confirmation and your key should work.

We are testing a 1995 VW Jetta, automatic 4 cyl engine. We had no trouble with it last night. Made several stops and it started up just fine. This morning, the key won't turn in the ignition. Key fits in...


If you have a ton of keys on the key chain that house the car key remove them. Then try starting the car. If this doesn't work then the release button either off the brake pedal or the shifter is stuck. Have it towed to a shop this envolves surgery.

Key won't go into the ignition


have you tried tuning the key upside down? or check to see that someone was not trying to steal your vehicle and broke something off in it? sometimes keys now days look the same on top and bottom and if it is upside down in some cars it will not go in also do you have a seperate key for the doors and ignition? if so u could have the wrong one and one last thing if you have more than one VW vehicle make sure u have the right key... other than that call the dealer.
