If the key will not come out but is turned to the correct position to be removed, then it sounds like it needs an ignition lock cylinder (this cylinder also directly actuates the steering wheel lock

Where is the hole on the lock cylinder that allows the key to turn when pushing on it?


have you tried to turn the steering wheel and then turn the key? when the steering wheel is locked it will not let the key turn, try turning the steering wheel to the right and then turning the key. Sometimes when getting out of the car your leg turns the steering wheel and locks it.

Key ignition wont turn


APPLY BRAKE AND MAKE SURE STEERING WHEEL IS CENTERED. IF IT IS PARKED SO THERE IS PRESSURE ON THE FRONT WHEELS AND HOLDING THE STEERING WHEEL HARD RIGHT OR LEFT IT WILL MAKE THE KEY VERY HARD TO TURN.

2003 honda accord/ key wont turn,steering wheel is locked


To fix your problem, you have to turn the steering wheel either to the left or right as much as you can, then try to turn the key in the ignition. When the steering wheel locks, the key won't turn. By manually holding the steering wheel out of the lock position, the key will turn again and you're steering column will be back to normal.

My 1998 Dodge Caravan key will not turn over steering wheel is locked as well as brakes..how can i unlock it to be able to put in neutral???


if the steering wheel is turn all the way one way and locked by the steering wheel lock then you will have to turn the steering wheel more and try turning the key.sometimes when the steering wheel is turned all the way one way and locked the pressure that is against the lock will sometimes not allow the key to turn.if the wheel is in the straight ahead position it may be the ignition key lock is worn and needs replacing.

your steering wheel lock is connected to ignition in column, pull hard on steering wheel in direction wheels are turned at the same time turn key, this should free them both up.

Cannot get key to turn in jeep. Have already driven it numerous times today, suddenly can't move steering wheel or gear shift and key will not turn. Help!


Try turning the steering wheel (hard) right and left while turning the key. Steering lock , and ignition lock work in conjunction with each other.

Steering wheel locked in place, key will not turn...


Very likely the steering thrust stored in the tires attempting to turn back is forcing excessive tension against the steering lock.

Try (very hard) to turn the steering wheel either direction while turning the key gently.

If that solves it you can avoid this by letting go of the steering after stopping to park, turn off the ignition slowly (engine off, pause, then key out). This will ensure that the steering wheel comes to rest prior to locking the column.
