Try turning the steering wheel from side to side as you turn the key.I know there isnt really any wiggle room in the steering now,but you don't need to actually move the wheel very far, you are just putting enough weight on the wheel to take the load off of the steering wheel locking mechanism which is in a bind right now.

You can pull your computer fuse out to kill engine. But the problem could be many things. I would start with the ignition itself. May be rebuildable.

Did you pull ******* the steering wheel on the direction that it is locked? Usually rare... But I have seen the springs go bad with the tumblers in the key cylinder. You could attempt to thump under the key cylinder to attempt to bounce the tumblers while moving the key back and forth.

Remote start function on remote doesn't work for a 2005 Pontiac G6.


Replace battery first and see if that help, if not then follow steps below, if you cant figure it out or it still doesn't work, or take it to the dealer, it could be remote module is faulty. Keep the windows open as a safety measure, then,

Remove the ignition key from the ignition lock cylinder.

Remove the BCM PRGRM fuse from the fuse panel. Refer to Fuse Block in Wiring Systems.

Close all of the doors.

Close the liftgate.

Turn the ignition lock cylinder to ACC.

Turn the ignition lock cylinder to OFF, & then back to ACC within 1 second.

Open & close any vehicle door. A chime will be heard when the system enters the BCM programming/diagnostic mode.

Important
After 7 seconds, a chime may be heard confirming successful synchronization. It is necessary to wait approximately 14 seconds for a second chime that will confirm successful programming.


Press & hold the transmitter LOCK & UNLOCK buttons simultaneously for 14 seconds.

Repeat the previous step on each additional transmitter to be programmed.

Remove the ignition key from the ignition lock cylinder.

Install the BCM PRGRM fuse back into the fuse panel. Refer to Fuse Block in Wiring Systems.

A 2007 chevy colbalt my key is stuck in the ignition i tried turning the steering wheel as well as turnng the key back and forth the key still wont come out.


The most likely cause is the shifter. The BTSI solenoid is not working properly. The shifter will have to be replaced to fix the problem.

Cannot turn key in ignition in 2008 cobalt. Attempted to find a release mechanism under steering column as I did with 2005 cobalt but the 2 or 3 things I could move did not release the ignition.


try moving the shifter back and forth from park to 1 then back to park, there is an issue with the shifter not releasing the park lock mechanism that goes into the ignition cylinder.

Key won't come out of the ignition.


yes, there is a shiftlock sensor, so you can only take the key out when in park.
Getting at it requires removal of the center console.
When you have it in park - give it a little tap forward before turning off the vehicle.
