Bad ignition tumbler/keyset. Something internal is jammed most likely. Or the linkage between the Automatic (assuming it's not a manual tranny) and the steering column isn't properly aligned. but that only prevents the key from going to the position for key removal. It would still rotate to the ACC and ON positions.

I put my car in park, but cannot turn key all way to left and cannot remove key. Is WD40 ok to use there? Any solutions to solve this problem? I can't get key out. Help please


What year/make/model car is it? Where is the shifter located, basically? It may not be the tumbler. The lock itself may be due to the steering wheel. It happens sometimes. Is the steering wheel locked into position, or can you still turn it? If it is too locked, try to unlock the wheel, by taking shifter out of park and back in, then try turning the steering wheel until it unlocks. When it does, the key should turn. I can give a better answer if I knew what car we're working with.

Steering wheel locked, cannot turn key to start, jiggling steering wheel not effective. turned battery on and off, inserted wd40, nothing works. help!!!


Try holding your steering wheel hard to the left as you try to turn the key. If this doesnt work try holding it to the right doing the same thing. Something happened to where the steering wheel lock engaged and that will prevent you from using the ignition key. Try this

keys & locks are subject to wear,especially if you have a large or heavy key-ring.do you have a spare key to try?the tip[pointy end] of the key is what releases the lock.have a new key made.if that doesn't work,call lock smiths for price to replace lock cylinder.

Nissan Sentra 2008 will not start


First try turning the steering wheel and jiggling the key simultaneously. If this doesn't work, your problem could be caused by the link between the ignition lock and the switch. Have your ignition switch and your key tumbler assembly replaced. It's an 08. It's under warranty !

Locked steering wheel


Try having someone rock the car frontwards and backwards, while you rock the steering wheel back and forth and try to turn the key - it sounds like you're jammed up hard against the steering column lock.
