Your ignition is probably bad. It may be the ignition actuator rod, if your car has one. It can be replaced fairly easily and only costs around $40.00, but I've not worked on a GM ignition for a while, so I'm not sure it has one. If not, you may want to get a replacement ignition from a salvage yard

    Your priblem sonds like a bad relay switch. On these newer care you have to press ithe brake to take it out of park or turn the ingition. If this is bad you cabnt turn the key or take it out of park. Quick problem solve take the cover from around the switch you might have to take off the panel at the bottom track wires to switch. I unplged one before an every thing worked. This is a safty ferure the pur in cars so when left running in park take it out of gear with out pressing the peddle kids doge etz.

My 2004 Santa Fe will not start steering wheel will not lock I wonder if that's the problem just started yesterday.


The wheel (all theft and safety) locks are connected to other components. They are on shifter, brake, and steering wheel. Try putting vehicle in neutral and with foot on brake see if it will start like that. It may just be a little off for wheel, brake, and shifter to mesh and lock up. They all have a say in how it goes. If vehicle is on hill of any kind it can keep locks from going, if wheel is turned to odd spot, or lock from shifter is off, they can all keep system from locking up. Would guess that it is not starting because one of the neutral safety switches is not engaged and wheel lock is kind of a side affect of this also. If you can take key out of ignition but wheel is not locked there is clearly an issue with the lock up system. But the wheel lock points are not at every inch of wheel turn. Sometimes you turn vehicle off with wheel at a point a little off from one of the holes and you just turn wheel a bit and lock will engage. But try starting in neutral - try moving shifter all the way back and then into park (with brake pushed) and see if they will get back in sync. You may have to push / roll vehicle a little to get weight off shifter and wheel, but if shifter moves from park with no brake, or key comes out with no wheel lock (or with shifter not in park) something in the 3 way lock system has come out of sync.

I have a 95 camaro, I put the key in ignition and it will not turn the ignition. It's like it's stuck. Replaced the ignition module and still cannot turn ignition. Help!


the ignition module (ignition switch on top of the steering column) normally doesn't get stuck.

things you can try:
steering wheel lock: (the pin gets a "burr" on it and locks everything up) wiggle steering wheel back and forth while trying to turn key.

transmission lock (parking on an incline will jam up the interlock)
push the shifter farther into park while trying to turn the key, or wiggle shifter

Ignition key won t turn


The ignition key won't turn likely because the shifter linkage that locks the key in OFF is worn or loose. Move the shifter linkage hard to the Park position and the key will turn. Have the linkage adjusted and the worn parts replaced

Cannot turn key in ignition to start car


Hi nicoleelgert, i suspect the steering lock is giving you the problem, all you need to do is turn the steering wheel left and right ( jiggle ) while turning the key in the ignition, it won't move much because it's locked but it will be enough to release the steering lock and allow you to turn key.. make sure you have the shifter in Park position too. Good luck . OK
