My 97 blazer wont start or turn over, now my key is stuck

...i had a tow truck driver move my 97 blazer into my driveway because it wouldn't start...he fiddled with the battery, and all the lights and everything were fine at the time - the car would turn over but wouldnt start...so now it is 2 days later and i have someone come over to "hear" the problem and i put my key in the ignition switch to turn it over and nothing...no lights, no power no nothing (so i am going to safely assume that the battery was somehow drained)...and then to top it off my key is stuck or locked in the ignition and i can't get it out...PLEASE HELP... any pointers or advice would really help! Thank you

I had this same problem. Under your steering wheel column is a tab that pops out. Stick a small screw driver up about 5 inches. There is a plunger that is keeping your key in. It should pop right out.

Shake the shifter or press up past park and it will free the key. The pins in the ignition get easily stuck on GM vehicles. I would also assume that you may have a short or bad negative ground cable from motor to body, door switch wiring, or radio. Otherwise your altenator may be bad

Why is my saab stuck in reverse?


Nasty - that car should never be towed with the front wheels on the ground. You probably have a wrecked transmission.

97 blazer was stuck and turned off in 1st gear. Now the vehicle has been moved but will not move out of first gear so it can't be started. Tried rocking. Was stuck in little snow but not enough to get...


I would not try to start it if it is in first gear!!! I would check the shifter level on the transmission. May be a linkage or shifter cable problem.

97 blazer stuck in park and no dash lights like battery,seat belt


Check the fuses.

Some transmissions will not allow you to move the selector stick, unless the brake is depressed. If the brake globes, or fuses have blown, you can not move the transmission of out park.

did you turn the key fully to towards the dash? take the steering wheel left and right slowely and at the same time turn the key back and forth several times slowly. there is a detent inside the steering column that allows you to ingage the neutral safety switch. this should help.....please rate this thanks.
