How do I get key out of ignition or start car?


You have to watch that now ,even on a 2006 vehicle . With the electronics an the number of control modules , every system has an electronic control module - a computer . When they lose power strange thing's happen .Sometime the only thing that will get the vehicle up an running again is a trip to the dealer . Battery Disconnect or Replacement Problems There are only a couple of thing's you could check an only if you know how the stating system works .It depends on what model LH2 or LY7 . You have to look in the under hood fuse / relay box an see if there is a STARTER relay . The starter relay is energized by the ECU - engine computer, there by cranking the engine over . Circuit Description
Moving the ignition switch to the CRANK position sends a 12 V signal to the ECM Ignition Crank Sense. The ECM verifies that the transmission is in the PARK or NEUTRAL position. The ECM then grounds the control circuit of the STARTER relay. When the STARTER relay is energized it allows voltage to the starter solenoid S terminal.
The problem of not getting your key out of the ignition probably has to do with the
Electronic Park Lock (EPL)/Ignition Lock Cylinder Control Actuator: If the vehicle is equipped with automatic transmission and a floor mounted console gear shift, it has an ignition lock cylinder control actuator system in the steering column. The ignition lock cylinder control actuator purpose is to prevent the ignition key from being turned to the OFF position when the transmission is in any position other than PARK and the vehicle may still be moving. The column ignition lock system consists of an ignition lock cylinder control actuator, and a park position switch that is located in the automatic transmission shift lock control switch. The ignition lock cylinder control actuator contains a pin that is spring loaded to mechanically prevent the ignition key cylinder from being turned to the lock position when the vehicle transmission is not in the PARK position. If vehicle power is lost, and/or the transmission is not in the PARK position the operator will not be able to turn the ignition key to the lock position and will not be able to remove the ignition key from the column.

Linear Shift Assembly: If the vehicle is equipped with a column mounted gear shift, it has a linear shift assembly on the steering column. The linear shift assembly has a cable that runs from the linear shift assembly to the ignition lock cylinder case. The purpose of this cable is to prevent the ignition key from being turned to the OFF position when the transmission is in gear and the vehicle may still be moving. The linear shift assembly cable contains a pin that is spring loaded to mechanically prevent the ignition key cylinder from being turned to the lock position when the vehicle transmission is not in the PARK position. If vehicle power is lost, and/or the transmission is not in the PARK position the operator will not be able to turn the ignition key to the lock position and will not be able to remove the ignition key from the column.
Given the amount of electronics on your vehicle ,without hooking up a factory grade scan tool to see which modules are still communicating it would be impossible for me or anyone else to give you a diagnostic direction. I have had vehicles like this come to the shop after the owner tried thing's, an it cost them a lot more then it would have if they just had it towed to the shop .You have no idea about the complexity of you vehicle .

Lost set of keys, alarm was on car locked. Found spare key only, it will open door, alarm goes off, but the key won't start engine. It will turn in ignition, but dead! It's a Chevy HHR 2006! HELP


Close the doors. Lock the doors using the buttons on the key fob. Use the fob to again unlock the doors. The key should then work the ignition. If this will not work, you will have to tow your vehicle to the dealer and buy a new key and/or fob and have it programmed to the vehicle.

How do you remove a key from a Honday ignition


  • Ensure that the vehicle is off and in "Park" or "Neutral." If the vehicle is in gear or running, the key cannot be removed.
  • Place your left hand on the top of the steering wheel and place your right hand on the key.

    Wiggle the steering wheel left and right, and attempt to turn the key into a different position, such as the "Accessory" or "On" position. Continue until the key moves freely.

    Turn the key back to the "Off" position, then pull key out ignition

    bad battery and if i don't drive the car couple of days then it goes dead ??? It's not the battery , you have a parasitic draw on the electrical system , that is what is draining the battery . Could be the instrument cluster .Watch this video . What's giving out 13 volts or when ? With the engine running hooking a volt meter to the battery the voltage should be 13 - 14 volts , depending on the load on the electrical system.

    What is the to capacity of a 2006 kia sportage i don't have the owner's manual and want to tow a trailer


    Most cars are about 1/2 ton capacity(1000 pounds) Towing a small trailer should be fine as long as the weight at the hitch ball is less than 200 pounds. Load the trailer so the most of the weight is on the trailer not your car.Remember to keep the tire pressure correct on the trailer and your car and give yourself plenty of stopping space as the car will respond slower with the extra weight. Also try to take off kind of slow and easy so you dont over work your cars transmission. An add on type auxillery transmission cooler is recommended.
