Unable to remove key from ignition

Hi my son purchased a pontiac Gran Am (2002) and now the key is stuck in the ignition. The key turns on/off but will not come out. We have tried to put into neutral to remove key and park several times, even drove around the neighbourhood to see if it needed to reset itself to no avail.

Could be a problem with the cable to the shifter. The shifter is supposed to be in park to lock the ignition switch and remove the key.
Could also be something jammed in the lock cylinder.

2002 sunfire key stuck in the ignition (run) position, won't turn off, no gages working, and will not shift out of park. now the service and theft system lights are on


Sounds as if the ignition cylinder is bad. You will have to replace it if the key is stuck. It is a lot easier to replace with the key in the on position as that will be required to remove the cylinder. If you get the key out and then the cylinder will not turn, replacement of the cylinder will be more complicated

The first thing I would do is clean your battery connections very good. you may have to remove the plastic covers off the cable ends to get them cleaned good. Also make sure you get the connection bolts tight.

Unable to remove key from ignition 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix


The ignition has an interlock that will not let you turn the key all the way to OFF until the transmission is in park.
This is done via a sensor either in the transmission itself, or on the shifter.

With the car off, step on the brake and shift from Park to Reverse, then back in to Park. You should hear a faint "click" as the interlock engages. If not, then your sensor (switch) may have failed.

2002 Pontiac Grand prix wont start; unable to remove key


On many cars, if the battery is dead, it locks the key in the ignition. Put a battery charger on the car or replace the battery and give it a shot.

Good luck.
