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

My 2007 chrysler pacifica wont shift out of park.


  1. Remove the instrument panel cover below the steering column, then remove the steering column shrouds to gain access to the brake transmission shift interlock (BTSI) solenoid. The solenoid is part of the interlock cable assembly.
  2. Disconnect the wire connector from the rear of the BTSI solenoid.
  3. Insert the ignition key and turn it to the ON position.
  4. With the brakes applied, try moving the shifter out of the PARK position.
    • If the lever now moves freely in and out of PARK, perform the Circuit Test below.
    • If the shift lever still does not move from the PARK position, remove the BTSI solenoid from the shift lever assembly. If the shift lever now moves freely in and out of the park position, the BTSI solenoid is faulty and the interlock cable must be replaced. If the shift lever still does not move from the park position, the problem is in the shift lever assembly or the ignition interlock cassette

Key is stuck in ignition, wont turn all the way back to remove it...if it helps, the steering wheel wont lock either

If the steering wheel wont lock either okay if its automatic make sure it goes in park. If automatic and it doesnt go in park the safety release will think you are in gear and you wont be able to take it out. Now for manual put the e brake on push the key all the while tun to the of position.I hope this help

2006 Chrysler Pacifica- Will not shift out of Park, the steering wheel isn't locked, and the brake is releasing as it should. What else could it be?

Can't get out Park, starts ok, tried the manuel thing pressing
the pink release button, nothing. Had the car towed but
they had to hoist it on a truck. Was there a recall for this?

AFter starting my truck, i sometimes have to wait ...

Could be the Shift interlock solenoid or the shift interlock circuit ( or the fuse for it )
The shift interlock is on the same switch as the Brake Pedal Position switch, it is on the side of the brake pedal, usually has a yellow c-clip retainer on it.

Start by checking the fuse with a meter for power on both pins on the back of the fuse. The fuse is #16.

If the fuse has power on both sides, next check for power at the shift interlock circuit on the switch on the brake pedal.
The circuit is Fuse #16 to a Tan w/ Red stripe wire to the shift interlock switch to a pink w/ light green stripe wire. When the brake pedal is pushed down power should be on both sides of the switch.

If you have power to both sides, I would say the shift interlock solenoid is the issue ( located : steering wheel column ).
If this is a flow through console, the shift interlock circuit also feeds the floor shifter.

It is stuck in park

ok first step is to take off the rubber cover (change holder) on the shifter. there is a pink tab push the pink tab down with a long screw driver. If it still is stuck in park the interlock spring is broken in the shifter u would need a shifter assembly 99% of the time this is the problem good luck.

Key won't turn to start vehicle

Make sure the shifter is fully in park. Bump it into the park position a few time to e sure it has allowed the shift interlock mechanism to engage. If that does not work, look at the key and see if maybe a tab has broken off. Also see if the steering wheel is turned under pressure when you parked it. pull the wheel both ways while trying to turn the key. Don't force it and risk braking it in the column. Hope this helps.

1992 toyota camry v6 auto. can't move shifter. car starts and ste

Car must be on and brake pedal depressed to shift. If you have no brake lights then the car doesn't know the pedal is depressed and will not shift out of park. This car has an interlock overide on the shifter console, push it and it will come out of Park. You will need a brake light switch tho.
