Question about 1998 Chrysler Sebring

Key stuck in ignition

I had this problem until I read this posting and then I went to my car
and tried what was suggested and the key came right out.

I am so thrillleeed!!! An auto mechanic told me that it would take him 2-3 days at best to fix and ultimately referred me to a Chrysler Dealer. Never under estimate the power of a blonde femail determined to figure it out on her own!!!

What a croc of nonsense!!!!!

Thank you!

Caddilac ignition locked

You need a new ignition switch lock cylinder. You must first read the resistance of the key to order this part. It is the little wire embedded in the black plastic near the shank of the key, you need a Digital volt-ohm meter to read it.

06 Colbalt Electrical System Dead

I would go to the positive terminal on the battery anjd check for black hard build up on the post and inside the terminal. This is lead sulphate and cause a high resistance to any high current flow. Clean both with sand paper until shiny and refit and tension properly. Do the negative also as it will have build up but to a lesser degree. If the battery lead runs through a connection box Check for tight connections there also. As to towing most towers have a wheel rack that fits under the tyres and lifts them clear of the road so it can be taken to to a shop.

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.

The wrong key got stuck in the ignition of my 2003 lincoln navigator. Now the right key will not turn over. The ignition is locked

Try turning the steering wheel to the left and the right while trying to turn the key , you may have set the steering lock after installing the wrong key , you may have to turn it kind of hard each way untill the the key turns once it starts you shouldn't have any problems after that.

The PATS transponder needs to be located by the key cylinder so it can "paint" the key with power to read the RFID tag on the key.

You can test if what you are talking about is the PATS transponder by holding another programmed key by it, and start the truck.

Did the wires get pulled apart when you were taking the key cylinder out ( i.e. check the other end ) ?

You are using the old key cylinder and the old programmed keys, right ?

Key stuck in ignition of 1996 Toyota 4Runner

This truck has a switch in the shifter assembly that tells the ignition the truck is in Park or not. If the shifter doesn't hit that switch right this can happen. Also, there is a component in the ignition (a solenoid) that allows the key to be released if the Park switch is pushed. To be sure it's one of these two things, try this.... Get the key stuck, then disconnect the battery. If the key comes right out, it's either the switch or the solenoid. Good luck!

Key stuck in ignition barrel

i shared the same problem - the key stuck in the ignition.

solution: there is a black 3/4" ring below the grey shifter handle that looks like three rings in one. if this piece is down the shifter post and not up agains shifter handle, the key will not release. Push ring up towards the handle until you hear a click (you might have to twist it a bit to get it up the post). once it's in place, the key will release. good luck.
