Ensure the vehicle is fully into park or maby try neutral while the Emergency brake is applied to remove the key maby even gently use a pair of pliers to help dislodge it try pushing in on the key as you turn it

1st Remove Battery cable from Battery because the only time the air bags will deploy is when the key is in the ignition. I have tilt steering and when I put the steering wheel in the up most position. I came right out. But now it seems to stick more lately.

To avoid breaking the key in the switch,is better to take appart the steering wheel and have the igniont cylinder out,you may want to try pulling it out yourself or take it to a locksmith.

Key locks in the ignition in the ACC position. can't take key out


when you turn key to acc pos that is telling the ignition to go into a accessory mode which runs the radio,wipers etc... but it doesnt allow the ignition circuit to run, and the key in most vehicles will not be able to come out,this is a security protection so that you do not leave accessories on that will drain the battery. The ignition key should only be able to be removed in the OFF position.

Try turning steering wheel left and right while pulling on key, not to hard. If that doesn't work call auto dealer service dept. maybe they can help.

Key wont come out of ignition


I fix this all the time. Remove the dash cover around the ignition. On the ingnition cyl. there is a small linkage control that you can remove, disconnect the wires and unscrew that piece, turn your key to off position and remove. Those wear out, but it's linked to the park selection on your shift electroniclyy (you got this for free, I charge 100 to do that normally)

Ignition is stuck in run position


does your key stays in the ignition position? or can you turn it back to acc or lock? it might be a stuck ignition switch mechanism inside or a shorted circuit that latches the ignition...have it checked or you can try to open it the switch yourself..but with caution if this is your first time. Pls give me a feedback. thanks!
