Try wiggling the wheel if in a jam but get a new key ordered through the dealer, getting one cut using THAT key won't help too much.

1999 Volvo S40 cannot remove key


What make vehicle ? Most all vehicles have a safety system .Don't try an force anything you'll break it !
Electronic Park Lock (EPL)/Ignition Lock Cylinder Control Actuator: If the vehicle is equipped with automatic transmission and a floor mounted console gear shift, it has an ignition lock cylinder control actuator system in the steering column. The ignition lock cylinder control actuator purpose is to prevent the ignition key from being turned to the OFF position when the transmission is in any position other than PARK and the vehicle may still be moving. The column ignition lock system consists of an ignition lock cylinder control actuator, and a park position switch that is located in the automatic transmission shift lock control switch. The ignition lock cylinder control actuator contains a pin that is spring loaded to mechanically prevent the ignition key cylinder from being turned to the lock position when the vehicle transmission is not in the PARK position. If vehicle power is lost, and/or the transmission is not in the PARK position the operator will not be able to turn the ignition key to the lock position and will not be able to remove the ignition key from the column. They also have this on column mounted shifters !

Hi if the car is automatic iv t could be the park switch. Many auto's need to be in park to remove the key. If not the ignition switch has fallen apart inside. Good luck.

How do I change the ignition switch in my 93 plymouth van?


FIRST OF ALL, TURN OFF RADIO,DISCONNECT NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE. IF EQUIPPED WITH TILT STEERING COLUMN,REMOVE TILT LEVER.CAREFULLY REMOVE THE UPPER AND LOWER STEERING COLUMN COVERS. REMOVE THE 3 TAMPER PROOF TORX IGNITION SWITCH MOUNTING SCREWS USING SNAP ON TOOL TTXR15A2 OR EQUIVALENT. GENTLY PULL THE SWITCH AWAY FROM THE COLUMN AND REMOVE THE 2 ELECTRICAL CONNECTORS FROM THE IGNITION SWITCH. WITH THE KEY IN THE LOCK POSITION, DEPRESS THE KEY CYLINDER RETAINING PIN FLUSH WITH THE KEY CYLINDER SURFACE. ROTATE THE KEY CLOCKWISE TO THE OFF POSITION THE KEY CYLINDER SHOULD NOW BE UNSEATED. ROTATE THE KEY CYLINDER COUNTER CLOCKWISE BACK TO THE LOCK POSITION, AND REMOVE THE LOCK CYLINDER. ( TO INSTALL ) CONNECT THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTORS TO THE IGNITION SWITCH. BE SURE THE CONNECTORS ARE SECURELY LOCKED IN PLACE. MOUNT THE IGNITION SWITCH TO THE COLUMN 3 SCREWS FOR VECHICLES WITH THE TILT STEERING COLUMN THE SHIFTER MUST BE IN THE PARK POSITION AND THE PARK LOCK DOWEL PIN AND THE COLUMN LOCK FLAG MUST BE INDEXED BEFORE THE SWITCH IS INSTALLED. PLACE SHIFTER IN THE PARK POSITION. PLACE THE IGNITION SWITCH IN THE LOCK POSITION. THE SWITCH IS IN THE LOCK POSITION WHEN THE STEERING COLUMN LOCK FLAG IS PARALLEL TO THE IGNITION SWITCH TERMINALS. POSITION THE PARK LOCK DOWEL PIN OF THE IGNITION SWITCH SO IT ENGAGES THE STEERING COLUMN PARK LOCK SLIDER LINKAGE. APPLY A LIGHT COATING OF GREASE TO THE PARK LOCK DOWEL PIN AND THE COLUMN LOCK FLAG. POSITION THE IGNITION SWITCH AGAINST THE LOCK HOUSING OPENING ON THE STEERING COLUMN. BE SURE THE SWITCH PARK LOCK DOWEL PIN ENTERS THE SLOT IN THE PARK LOCK SLIDER LINKAGE INSTALL THE RETAINING SCREW AND BRACKET. TORQUE THE SCREW TO 26 INCH LBS. INSTALL THE STEERING COLUMN COVERS AND THE TILT LEVER IF REMOVED. WITH THE KEY CYLINDER AND THE IGNITION IN THE LOCK POSITION INSTALL THE KEY CYLINDER INTO THE SWITCH UNTIL IT BOTTOMS.

My key is stuck in the ignitin and wat come out


The ignition key cannot be removed from the ignition switch, unless the shift lever is in Park. When the shift lever is in any position other than Park, a solenoid is activated, making it impossible for the key to be removed, until the shift lever is moved to Park.
