Hi, The key that you have cut is too rough and needs to be filed abit.
To get the key out of the lock spray some lubricant in and wiggle it till it comes out. DW40 or Graphite lube is good. Good luck

SOURCE: how to get key out that is stuck in ignition

Remove steering column shroud(cover)and tap ignition barrel with small hammer while twisting key backwards and forwards,also turn steering wheel backwards and forwards sometimes this is enough to release key as the locking pins in barrel and the steering lock pin do sometimes jam.You will have to remove steering column shroud to replace ignition barrel if tapping/hitting it doesnt work anyway so its not a wasted effort.Good luck,let me know how it works out

SOURCE: Ignition stuck in run position with keys in it.

If it has a automatic transmission make sure it's in park (try pushing the shifter while twisting the key). Try wiggling the steering wheel while twisting the key. If the car is parked for long periods of time the ignition cylinder could be sticking (try spraying WD-40 in around the key). I had a classic car and the key fell out while the engine was running. And when I turned it off I couldn't turn it again even with the key, I had to replace the lock cylinder.

Put the battery on charge or jump it. Basically it's locked in because of the lack of juice.

How do i get key out stuck in start 2002 sun fire

Do you mean the car is running, or it's stuck on accessories? Does the key shut off one notch, or not at all. If it does turn off one notch, does it turn on again easily just not off?. Sounds like your key is worn, ignition is worn , or your car is not locking in park properly. Is this something new, or has it been stiff moving lately? First I'd try pushing gear shift into park firmly, even putting it back into drive ,then into park again. If that doesnt work, try wiggling the steering wheel as you try to turn the key off. If that doesnt work, try pushing in and out on the key as you are trying to pull it back and out. Let me know how this works and if it doesn't work, we can try some other methods. When you do get it out, take your car permit into a pontiac dealership, and they can cut you a new key by the VIN number. Don't get a key cut from the key you have cause it's worn out and will only make another bad key. The dealer has the code they need to cut it the way it was when it was new. Let me know how you make out. If the key is stuck on the acc position and all the accessories are still on, disconnect your battery so you don't drain it. Let me know.

It seems that you have either twisted key or broken lock. perhaps both. So I would go to nearest locksmith and try to get them to pull key out, and then switch the lock or cut the key in lock, then drill the lock and pull it of. Pull back new lock.

I can start the car and then pull the key out and the car still runs. Just had the "ignition cahnged" any suggestions 2001 intruge olds

Sounds like your key is worn out. The sharp cuts on the head of the key wear out over time causing the ignition to lose "grip" on the key allowing it to be pulled from the ignition. Try using a new spare key or have a new key made. If the key is coded you may need to have the dealer cut and program a new key for you.
