The problem is not your key. We had the same issue with our cobalt. it is in the ******* column where you put the car from Park to reverse to drive. There is a small pin that runs through the bottom and it has become dislodged. You have to take the covering off and you should be able to see where it is and replace it. Be careful as our car would not stay in park you need to put the emergency brake on whenever you park the car until it is fixed. It only takes about 30 minutes to fix it from start to finish. I think the actual name of the pin is a shift cylinder but don't quote me.

I would try another key if one was available to you (yours may or may not be slightly bent)or I would replace the lock cylinder itself which could possibly be damaged and not allowing key to remove. Hope this helps let me know if you need any further info on this.

2001 ford taurus key won't turn ignition


The steering wheel was turned when the key was removed. So when you try to turn on the key, turn the wheel one way and the other way to release the pressure on the key. The key should turn ok.
Hope this helps.

P1610 and P1614 Keys won't turn for Lock Position on Ignition Lock Cylinder


Not sure what the problem here is.
The codes are for the security system - - the key is not sending a signal or the right signal for the car to start.
Could be a problem with the lock cylinder which may have a sensor for the key inside it.

Key won't turn in ignition


If your steering wheel is locked, turn it a bit away from the locked position. Key should turn now.

Otherwise, you may need to replace the ignition or you have a bad copy of a key.

I changed the key batteries for my 1999 BMW 323i after they died. Afterwards the remote unlock and lock won't work, the car also won't start but it can turn over/on and the radio and the lights...


stick the key in the ignition, turn it to the on position, remove it within 5 seconds, then hold the unlock button down and press the lock button 3 times within 10 seconds and release both buttons. The doors should lock/unlock to give you confirmation and your key should work.
