The malibus grand ams and aleros all had the same problem. you are going to need to replace the ign cylinder. You may be able to turn the key by lightly taping the end of the key with a hammer and turning at the same time. If you do get it to turn go get a cylinder from the dealer replace the cylinder. You have to program the theft. When you replace the cylinder try to start the car and leave the key in the on postion untill the the theft light goes out and you shopuld be fine.

Why won't my peugeot 206sw start an it has locked gears


Try turning steering wheel some each way while trying to turn key, pressure from steering may not be allowing it to unlock to let key turn. Other cars sometimes do that, if the locking wheel is gear you are talking about.

Can't turn ignition and steering is stuck on Peugeot 307. What do I do?


your steering wheel is turned excessively causing pressure on the mechanism. Turn steering wheel to relieve pressure off lock mechanism (about 1/8 inch) while turning key

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

Key is stuck in ignition, wont turn all the way back to remove it...if it helps, the steering wheel wont lock either


If the steering wheel wont lock either okay if its automatic make sure it goes in park. If automatic and it doesnt go in park the safety release will think you are in gear and you wont be able to take it out. Now for manual put the e brake on push the key all the while tun to the of position.I hope this help

The key wont turn and neither will the steering wheel


Sounds like the steering column lock is stuck. Look at the front wheels and see which way they are turned. Then get in the car and turn the steering wheel in the same direction while wiggling the key. Put enough pressure on the steering wheel to take the pressure off of the steering lock but not enough to damage anything. The key and wheel should release.
