If you're trying to take your keys out but it won't let you, your battery is dead. Just have someone give you a jump and you should be able to take your key out.

Yes battery could be dead or a bad starter or alternator.
But the only way to get the key out is to get some WD40 and spray it inside the ignition this will lubricate it so then you will play with the steering wheel move it side to side and give the key a pull and make sure your transmission is in park.

Good Luck!

I need more details. Is the car engine " cranking' over at all, very slowly ect.
Do you hear any sounds when you turn ignition to start ?
Are the lights coming on in the dash when you turn on ignition ?
Do your headlights come on ?
Please let me know.

Turn on the headlights and turn the key to start if the headlights go out the battery is dead and needs to be repaired if they do not go out then you may have a starter that is locked up or a bad solenoid on the starter.

Security system lock out 2006 DTS

Not to insult your intelligence but is the shifter all the way in park? You may have an issue with linkage too. Or ignition switch needs replacement, (maxima's are also known for ignition replacement)
Other wise disconnect your car battery for ten min, just leave it sit, after ten min put ur battery cable back on, try ur key again.if you have a spare key work with the drivers door a little with locking and unlocking

Key locked in ignition 06 DTS and electonics dead

It could be a bad ignition key assembly. The key assembly has a unit attached to it to read the Security code in the key and sometimes when these start to go bad they overheat bad. Go have it checked out by your mechanic.
