    Usually the key cylinder can be unstuck by spraying with WD-40 -- put the spray straw into the key slot as far as you can get it -- spray liberally -- put something under the steering column to keep oil off carpet. Work the key and the steering wheel back and forth as you do this. Charlie Charlie

Try to turn the wheel in either direction slightly while trying to turn the key. If this doesn't work, someone may have tried to steal the car and broken the wheel locking device.

Ignition key won't turn, gear shift is stuck in park


Turn your steering wheel and turn your key at the same time. GM vehicles have issues with the ignition switch not turning when the steering wheel is turned too far to the left or right.

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

What if jiggling steering wheel does not correct stuck ignition?


Pull or push the auto transmission gear selector slightly further in each direction from the "park" position. The key can not be removed unless the car is in park. If the gear selector is not in the exact spot needed - the ignition will not move to allow the key to be removed. Likewise, if the car battery is dead, you may not be able to remove the key until you connect to another car with jumper cables to energize the ignition circuits.

Good luck!

Key stuck in the ignition. Position indicator


Hi there,
try turning the wheel to the right/left while turning the key in the ignition. You have to apply some force. Your car is probably outliving its road life.

97 Celica - Key stuck in accesory position


while in park, press shifter firmly even farther above park. Hold shifter and turn key.
The linkage may need adjusting. If this does not help the situation, then the pins inside the ignition are not getting pressed down because key is getting worn. You can try to tap around the ignition lightly with hammer to shake the pins loose.
