Check the brake switch. On some vehicles there is a switch that must make before it allows you to take it out of park. I have also seen blown fuse/pulled fuse that would do this.

Key won;t turn and steering wheel and brake are locked - ??


Sounds like your steering wheel is turned to either direction causing the pin to be stuck due to the pressure. Turn the steering wheel to the direction it seems to be turned. Hold that position while turning the key. It might require a little muscle power to hold it in place.

What should we do?


Hi there,
There is a (silly) safety lock on the ignition to stop it starting in gear, or the key being removed if not in park, and a sensible safety lock on the gear shift to stop kids letting it roll down a hill. Try putting your foot firmly on the brake, press the park release button beside the gear shift, while pulling the shifter out of park and back into park.
Getting the key out: Sometimes the steering wheel is placing pressure on the steering lock and key release mechanism, so try turning the steering wheel in any direction it can go while trying to release the key. It should come only out when you are in park.

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

Did you pull ******* the steering wheel on the direction that it is locked? Usually rare... But I have seen the springs go bad with the tumblers in the key cylinder. You could attempt to thump under the key cylinder to attempt to bounce the tumblers while moving the key back and forth.

What can I do if will not go into park and I can not get my key out of ignition? 2000 dodge intrepid please help


check and see if the steering wheel is locked into place. if it is try turning the wheel a little more to see if you can get the key to turn to unlock the wheel. see if the key will come out with the wheel unlocked. you could try putting it into neutral and applying the parking brake. see if the key will come out. also you could try getting under the car and the should see a cable connected to a little lever on the transmission. push the lever to get it in to park. you can manually put the car in park from there. make sure you have the parking brake on and/or wheel chocks to make sure the car dosent roll on you.

Ignition switch will not turn on. Battery is good. Steering wheel is locked, What should we do?


Quite often that will happen when vehicle parked with wheels turned, and/or vehicle on a slope, so try to avoid that in future.If nothing else, when parked on a slope, stop, keep foot on brake pedal, apply parking brake, put transmission in neutral, then take foot off brake pedal and wait for parking brake to stop vehicle rolling, then shift it into park. When leaving, put foot on brake pedal, shift to drive or reverse whatever direction your going, then release parking brake. Sounds like a lot to remember but you won't have to pull hard on shifter as before, and it could save a lot of money on transmission repairs down the road. Always try to park with wheels straight as well.
Now, with that said, if you parked with wheels turned, try hard to turn steering wheel in same direction wheels are turning, just slightly, as you try to turn key. Sometimes a quick yank in that direction will do it. Also make sure shifter is all the way in park before you try it. If your on a slope try rocking vehicle slightly up slope as you push/pull shift lever in to park and try to turn key at same time. If no luck, try pushing brake pedal real hard and try to turn key. Let me know how it goes.

try stepping on the brake pedal then pulling the shifter out of park if that dont work it may have a shifter overide lock near the shifter you pop the cover up with a flathead screwdriver and push the screwdriver down in the slot while stepping on the brake and shifting out of park hope this helps
