Yes, a loose ignition switch makes contact more difficult. The ignition switch needs to be flush in order to make perfect contact.

1.) make sure the gear lever is completely in the P setting by just tapping the gear selector lever towards the front of the car

2.) If that fails inspect your ignition switch, I have had to replace mine twice on my 1993 Skylark

My battery went dead in my 95 buick skylark, now the key wont even turn


The battery going dead has nothing to do with the key now not turning, however, the key not turning properly could have caused the dead battery if the ignition switch did not turn off all the way. Anyway, if the key won't turn, you most likely need to replace the ignition lock cylinder. The battery is a whole different issue. It could be a problem with the ignition switch, or it could just be time to replace the battery.

Shut off 1997 buick skylark to go into store. Put key back into ignition and will not turn to start. The key will not turn to start car. Locked up. Is it the ignition switch, key, anti theft light also...


ok if key goes fully into ign then you have a easy and common issue. im guessing the steering wheel is locked too? if so insert key and hold firm forward turning pressure while slowly trying to turn steering wheel from side to side. the wheel should turn about a half a inch each way. if your parked in a pot hole or aginst the curb then more effort with the wheel will be required. this should do it good luck. if not this call a lock smith, they cancahange that lock cylinder on site where ever the car is in most cases, your is not complicated to replace

Steering ignition switch lock


Jiggle the steering wheel back and forth while trying to get the key back in. Keep jiggling the wheel while turning the key until it all works out.
