Friend had the same problem. Took it to the shop and they took the switch apart to get the key out then put some graphite in it. Been working ever since.

Igintion key will not eject

Sounds like a faulty microswitch. In the same way as you can't pull the car out park unless the foot brake is pushed (proved by a switch on the brake pedal) so the gear level will send a signal to say it is in the park position allowing you to remove the key.

Igintion switch

Electrical portion of the ignition swith is faulty. Replace that and all will be well. A good rule to follow since this a weak point on most of hondas older model cars is the lighter the key chain the longer the life of the electrical portion of the ignition switch.

1997 V90 VOLVO STATION WAGON alarm was activated can't start car. I have no key remote and don't know how to shut off. My vehicle wash just purchased used. I don't know what to do

You should be able to disable the alarm by putting the key in the door and turning it, or by putting it in the igintion switch and turning it. One of the two should disarm the alarm. If that will not work, then you could disconnect the battery, call the dealer and get a key fob for the alarm system.

I have 1995 GMC Jimmy, the key is stuck in the "ON" postion and will not budge. Do I need a whole new igintion switch, or how do I fix it? The car will drive and go into all gears it just will not shut...

Directly under the key lock cylinder is a hole. It may have a plastic cap in it, if so it just prys out. Take a tiny screwdriver push in hole while turning key backwards it will release switch & key.

There should be a button inside the column that you push in, or a bolt to remove, been awhile since I did one. You may need to have the key in the lock cylinder and turn the lock cylinder.

Turn iginition key no responce to starter. Bought new key with chip still n o responce.

try to start it in neutral. the trans. has a safety switch that will not allow the car to start in anything, but park and neutral. sometimes the shift lever gets a little out of line with the gear indicator. also try firmly shifting into and out of park a few times. this may flip the switch. good luck

My car just will not start bcm?

sounds like your ignition switch. NOT the key switch, the igintion switch. It works off the key cylinder to allow or not allow power to your components. Like radio, gagues, starter, ignition, wipers etc. If the switch is going bad, you may have power to some or none of those components with key in on position.
