Disconnect the lock from the switch itself (on top of column under dash) If key switch moves freely, replace switch. It helps to drop column down when working there.

89 chevy celebrity stalls when turning


Do the following service it should help the stall out.

Engine stalling and rough run issue at low speeds

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

We have a 2003 chrysler 300m. Shut car off this morning and now key will not turn ignition switch


You might try turning your steering wheel back and forth and maybe changing your tilt while trying to turn the key. It sounds like your steering wheel lock is stuck which is common. Sometimes it just takes playing with it to get it to turn. Another problem that causes this is the gear selector not being in the right spot causing it not to let the ignition turn. Hope this helps and good luck!

Key and steering wheel wont turn over... can i manually unlock it?? '97 Saturn SL 1 (5 spd)


the steering wheel is locked. Put the key in and grasp the steering wheel and turn just slightly to take the pressure off of the cylinder It will only move an inch or 2 but the problem you are having is that the wheel locks and put pressure on the cylinder preventing it from being able to turn, jamming it into place. once pressure is removed the key should turn.

Battery dead, key stuck in ignition.


I have had the same problem with my daughter's car. She inadvertnetly left the key in the on position and the battery went dead. Apparently an electrical current is neded to withdraw the key. I put a battery charger on the car for several hours and everything worked fine after that.

2005 cobalt stalling out


If the power steering is tight and does not loosen up,i would say the power steering pump is locked up.With the engine not running ,remove the drive belt from the engine.Try and turn the power steering pulley with your hand.It should be easy to turn,turn it 4 or 5 times all the way around.If you can not move the pulley,or it stops,or gets tight turning it all the way around,then it is a bad power steering pump.This is something you will want a mechanic to do.If I can help,let me know.
