Ignition key wont turn so i can start my car


Hello there try giving your steering wheel a good **** and try the ignition at same time. I know the steering wheel is in the locked position but there is a little bit of play there that sometimes will release the locked up ignition.

Ignition on my 2004 jeep grand Cherokee is locked, how do I unlock the ignition? Keys goes in ignition, door chim works when key is in ignition. But the key won't turn it's stuck.


tap the ignition lock cylinder with the plastic end of a scrwedriver (with the key removed). then insert the key and try to start. Try this several times. If you get it to turn immediately replace the igntion lock cylinder. The cylinder needs to be in the on position in order for the lock button to be depressed so that the cylinder can be removed from the housing.

If you still can't get it to turn than you will have to drill out the lock button in order to get the old lock cylinder out. I wouldn't recommend doing this unless you have some experience and understand what you are doing.

The lock button can be accessed by removing the lower steering column cover.

Truck started and is running, but the key is locked in ignition


unplug the electrical connector to the igntion coil will make the car to quit running.
I think it's a mechanical problem with the ignition lock cylinder. it's required to remove the steering wheel to get to the igntion lock cylinder.
at least get the car to quit running so you can try to get the key to turn by keep on turning the key and move the shifter and tap the brake at the same time. hope it will get loose some how. good luck

How to replace key igntion?


You must first remove the steering wheel. You may be able to work around the turn signal switch. Insert the key and turn the ignition to the "run" position. It will slide out of its mounting hole now. If it does not come out easily push the locking pin in with a 16 penny nail or other pointed instrument.

Change key lock on igntion 1999 2500 4x4


does the ignition switch turn? Did you remove the top and bottom cover of the column by removing the torx screws? If so, there is a hole in the top of the housing that the lock cylinder fits in. FIRST unhook the battery!! Push a small nail or pick into the hole while holding the key in the START position. Rotate the key back to the run position and pull the switch out.
