I had a similiar problem with my 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix. It turned out to be a sensor in the gear shift that let the car know it was in park and to release the key so it can be removed. I would try looking there

Check if the key is broken, otherwise check the car's safety systems. If the battery has been discharged, the electronic vehicle immobilizer can be activated. Try to reconnect the battery and then take out the key=) Good Luck, Regards David.

I have my key stuck in the ignition of my 2007 Buick Lacross. How do I get it out.


Sounds like the battery or the ignition switch has gone bad. The key won' release until the shift lock solenoid is energized to allow the key to turn all the way back.

Stuck eldorado key in DTS ignition now car won't start


Make sure your steering wheel isn't locked. Sometimes a key won't turn until you jiggle the wheel while trying to turn the key.

2005 Blazer key won't turn in the ignition


You may want to try to slightly push / pull your vehicle to take weight / tension off the transmission, which in turn will allow you to turn the steering wheel enough to see if the ignition switch can be turned.

Ignition locked in off position


If the key is stuck in the ignition and won't allow you to turn the cylinder to "On" or "Start" you can try gently and rapidly tapping on the end of the key [with something like a light screwdriver handle] while applying gentle turning pressure on the key. Often the tumblers in the cylinder get dirty or are damaged and this trick will sometimes get the thing to work a few times more. Hope this helps and good luck!

You have to do a relearn procedure on the anti-theft system:

Cannot turn key in ignition to start car


Hi nicoleelgert, i suspect the steering lock is giving you the problem, all you need to do is turn the steering wheel left and right ( jiggle ) while turning the key in the ignition, it won't move much because it's locked but it will be enough to release the steering lock and allow you to turn key.. make sure you have the shifter in Park position too. Good luck . OK

My 1988 Hyundai Excel wont start, the radio and lights turn on fine but there is nothing when i turn the keys. Please help.


Possible the Ignition switch is faulty, the IGN fuse is open, the solenoid is struck or the starter motor is struck or not contacting.
You will have to check one by one the above to finalise the fault.

I have a 1994 nissan pathfinder and the ignition locked and my key won.t tun it.


A lot of times you need to rotate the steering wheel a little while trying to turn the key to release the lock. This should then allow you to turn the key in the ignition. Hope this helps.
