My truck will not go in to park and i cant turn it off


Hello. The two issues are related and most likely due to a worn ignition switch. Try jamming the truck into park with twice as much force as usual, also try wiggling the key. These things will usually work. That said, do get a lock smith to change your ignition. That is the long term fix to your problem. j.

GMC jimmy key stuck in ignition, steering column will not lock, electrical system working


It sound like your shifter linkage is worn and your ignition interlock is not making it into the park position. I'm not 100% sure on jimmies but my GMC Sierra could be adjusted on the steering column under the hood. It's just a rod through an eye with a bolt. Put the transmssion in park and loosen the bolt and twist the column until the indicator is in park, retighten the bolt.

2004 jimmy will not start


The first thing to check is: make sure selector was all the way in park. If it didn't lock in park (it showed in park but doesn't lock) you can't take the key out.

I had the issue before. The issue turned out to be that the voltage from the battery was low due to corroded terminals. Once that was cleaned up and the voltage restored to normal, the key came out. Come to find out that this was a common issue in that vehicle, voltage goes low, you cant remove the key.

To remove the Key: there is a small hole on the steering column below the area of where the ignition key cylinder is. If you have this, you can remove the small cover and take a small tool like an allen wrench or a pen and push it up in there and that will press on a release mechanism that should allow you to turn the key back to its release position and pull the key out.

2000 Jimmy , put in park , turn off key & key wont come out of ignition.


Does the transmission work in all 4 gears? I've seen bad ignition switches cause this. Not the ignition lock cylinder, the electrical switch.
