Try spraying a little WD40 into the ignition . Make sure tension is off the steering wheel. Turn steering wheel back and forth while trying to remove key.

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

Car in park, could not turn off car, key stuck in ignition in "on" position. Had to pull fuel fuse to turn off car. Key still stuck. Heard problem might be in gear shifter - plastic piece...


Problem is most likely park shift interlock. This has to do with shifter. The vehicle don't know it is in park and will not allow shut off or key remove. Need to take vehicle to a repair shop and have fixed.

My key is stuck in the ignition and the motor is still running, I cannot take out the key or turn the motor off, it's stuck. What do I do?


Try wiggling your gear shifter and stepping on the brake at the same time while your trying to turn it off. Sounds like the park safety switch isn't engaging

Key stuck in ignition. How to remove?


Ha this used to happen to me with my sunfire. Just wiggle the steering wheel while trying to wiggle the key out. Sometimes the steering wheel locks up and then keys will get stuck in ignition. Hope this helps.
