Have you tried pulling on your steering wheel at the same time you turn the key? Are you up against a curb? Try pulling it both ways. Push gearshift firmly into park and try it. It could be the safety switch in your counsel is faulty.

I have a suzuki xl7 2003 the steering wheel is locked. I move the steering wheel to the left to release the pressure, but I still can't turn the ignition


Elvira, You may have a shift interlock spring or cable problem. If you have already tried turning the steering wheel forcefully back and fourth and key is not turning, try and shift the car into park with a little force and pressing and releasing shifter button rapidly to release ignition key. Find a good locksmith or take vehicle into a good shop for diagnoses and estimate on repair. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Unlock steering wheel and ignition 1994 ford f250


Use the key, if it wont turn try jerking the steering wheel in both directions while turning the key, sometimes when the wheel is turned when parked the key lock gets stuck due to pressure on the lock cylinder

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 keys open the door but wont let me start my car


insert your key into the ignition, try wiggling the steering wheel at the same time trying to turn your key to start. sometimes ignitions lock when the vehicles parked in a bind or on hill or wheels turned hard one way or other. you can also try flipping your key over and inserting it into the switch. it really seems to me that your problems a locked wheel though. if you have some 3in 1 household oil,it would'nt hurt to oil that key.hope this helps,and please let us know. as always,you can repost your question for more input from other experts.thank you for choosing fixya.com
