Remove the two plastic shrouds that covers the steering column . under the ignition shaft their is a cylinder shape object a little smaller that a roll of pennies. I think its chrome with white plastic ends on it. At the end of this device, their is a Brass tip, push that piece in & your key should come out....// I did not replace this item, because of the price, instead I drilled a finger size hole through the plastic shroud.

Hi is the steering straight when you parked the car?

you may have to turn the steering all the way to the way they are facing and hold it there while jiggling the key. if you wheels are not straight when you parked then it sometimes will not let you remove the key.

It's quite common on this these cars.
Hope this helps
Regards

Dan

Why would you not have the key cylinder replaced,

That makes no sense to use a car like that

Now your new battery will go dead & be ruined

Can't remove key from ignition. Battery seems to be dead but sparks when I put the charger on. Still can't remove key.


Tumblers broke in the ignition and have caused the ignition to "lock up". You need to replace the ignition assembly.

Can't remove key from ignition. battery is dead


If the battery is dead, the ignition keys will not release from the ignition. If there is no signal from the transmission shifter that it's in park since the battery is dead, then the ignition lock will not release the keys.  After charging the battery or jumping the blazer to start it and the key's still will not release, try this. 
There is a "plunger" as part if the ignition. Under the steering wheel there is a small removable cap that you can take off and put a small screw driver up into and press the plunger in and it will release the key. Good luck and hope this helps, Keep me posted be glad to help.

2002 Pontiac Grand prix wont start; unable to remove key


On many cars, if the battery is dead, it locks the key in the ignition. Put a battery charger on the car or replace the battery and give it a shot.

Good luck.

How to get key out that is stuck in ignition


Remove steering column shroud(cover)and tap ignition barrel with small hammer while twisting key backwards and forwards,also turn steering wheel backwards and forwards sometimes this is enough to release key as the locking pins in barrel and the steering lock pin do sometimes jam.You will have to remove steering column shroud to replace ignition barrel if tapping/hitting it doesnt work anyway so its not a wasted effort.Good luck,let me know how it works out
