Question about 1997 Nissan.5 Altima

1 Answer

My daughter has a 1997 Nissan Altima and the key is stuck in the ignition. The car will start up and run just fine, she just can't get the key out. I guess the ignition won't turn back far enough. Thanks

It sounds like the shift lock thinks the car is still in gear check the shift lock solenoid a make sure it's working properly and you may be able to move it to where itis reading that the car is in park if it does try turning the key on off and removing it if it works replace the solenoid

Won't start; hear clicking sound coming from fuse box; no lights; key stuck in ignition. Please help.


please check your battery condition.
clicking sound you hear is from the magnetic switch ***'y of the starter.
no lights & stuck ignition key is caused by a low power or bad battery.
hope this may help.

The ignition is stuck on my 99 Nissan Altima. We


Have you tried to turn the wheel far to the left as you try to turn the key? Also try to turn the key backwards in the ignition while holding wheel to the left. If those don't work, maybe try sliding the key in with a little WD-40 as this will lubricate the ribs in the ignition slightly and just insert/remove key slowly and quickly a few times and then try the steps above.

Does the car have a key release button? Sometimes these get stuck with the wheel turned slightly and the ribs of the ignition will not close on the key to allow for operation of the ignition.

Let me know,

I cant turn the ignition or move the steering wheel on my 2003 nissan altima. When I insert the key I get the usual sound but I cant turn the key at all, and the steering wheel seems like its stuck.


i think there is a ignition problem , might try replacing it , of course you cant turn the steering if the key wont turn , its a theft prevention device.

Rough idle, dies when trying to give it gas


it'll either be your ignition system (spark plugs, distributor cap, etc) or more likely your fuel system (most likely your fuel pump or your fuel filter)

Check your battery fuse mine just also did that and it was the fuse under the hood. Location of fuse box is by the battery and it should be the big fuse close to the middle
