My battery died. After trying to start my car the key is now stuck in ignition, shifter stuck in park, no brake lights. I charged the battery and only get the cluster lights.

My battery was low and when I tried to start my car it died. But the key is stuck in the ignition on the #2 position, the shifter is stuck, no brake lights, no door locks, etc. I charged the battery but still only get cluster lights.

Sounds like a lot of problems that shouldn't have been affected from a low or dead battery. But try moving the steering wheel back & forth, sometimes the column lock gets a little wedged and prevents the key/ign from turning.

Hi there all the things you explain are and need power to operate, make sure your battery has 12.6 volts or more and try again , if your battery doesn't have that voltage then you will need a new battery, hope this helps

SOURCE: Ignition and Transmisssion Locked on 2000 Chevy Malibu

On this car there is a cable that is tied into the shifter, so you have to turn the keep to be able to take it out of gear. Its all in 1 big housing. Usually to remove the ignition cylinder it has to be in the run position and you push a little key down to remove it. Since your key won't turn you have to figure out a way to do it.However once you replace the ignition cylinder your shifter will move and you will be able to start the car. To get to the ignition switch/cylinder you have to remove the molding around the instrument panel and then the instrument cluster. Then you can unbolt the assembly in the front with a 10mm socket. lift the assembly up and now you have access to change it out. Hope this helps.

2003 Jeep Wrangler, the automatic shifter is locked and the key will not come out of the ignition. Any ideas?


sure, battery under hood charged,
head lights work> y/n ???????
fuses good.

shift locked in park you mean?
do the brake lights work,
this is called the park lock out. system. (simple)
it keeps car from moving when started in gear.

on this car the PCM logic controls this.
brake lights glowing
the PCM senses the park switch on the transmission
if in park (or neutral) the PCM then energizes the
lock solenoid on the shifter.
or the solenoid is jammed.
check those brakes first. and its fuse. if blown.

Ignition key doesn't turn, gear shift stuck in park


Check under your dash at the levers for the Brake pedal. There are some Interlock switches that get hit by feet fairly regularly. The switch that makes the gearshift unlock is on the Brake pedal.You have to have your foot on the brake to shift out of Park.

When the shifter is stuck you will not be able to remove your Key from the Ignition. You need to press on the Brake and then try to get the trigger on the shifter to move into Park. Once in Park everything will be okay.

Key doesnt turn


dose your car have a key removal lock ? a lock you have to press befor you can remove the key ?
there is a shift over ride by your shifter. between/around the shifter and the radio (closer to the sifter) there is a small round plastic cover you can remove with a small flat head screw driver. remove this. you will a key or the screw driver and insert it into, what looks like a key hole for your car and turn/press (sorry for being vauge GMC's change year to year) this should allow you to move the shifter into park. make sure the car is off or at lest you have the E-brake on as well as your peddle brakes.

97 Celica - Key stuck in accesory position


while in park, press shifter firmly even farther above park. Hold shifter and turn key.
The linkage may need adjusting. If this does not help the situation, then the pins inside the ignition are not getting pressed down because key is getting worn. You can try to tap around the ignition lightly with hammer to shake the pins loose.
