Key gets stuck in my 2000 GMC Jimmy

When I shut off my 2000 GMC Jimmy, the key will get stuck in the ignition from time to time, and it won't turn all the way back for me to be able to pull the key out. I have to play with it sometimes to get it out. What is causing this?

SOURCE: can't remove key from ignition 2001 gmc jimmy

I ran into the same problem ..... the fix was make sure selector was all the way in park. If it didn't lock in park (it showed in park but didn't lock) I couldn't take the key out but I could turn the vehicle all the way off.

SOURCE: key stuck in the ignition of 1998 GMC Jimmy

Is the ignition switch turned off? Is it in ACC mode. It may be that the locking mechanism on the steering wheel is engaged. If that’s the problem, try working the steering wheel back and forth while also trying to remove the key. This may help you to remove the key itself, but does not fix the overall problem. I believe that the cutting of the key its self is the problem. Try just getting a knew key made. Hope this helps…. John…

SOURCE: 93 gmc jimmy 4.3 vortec has a flooding problem. I

The most likely 2 causes are leaking fuel pressure regulator on the side of the spider, or leaking fuel LINE going into or out of the spider. Both are reasonably common failures. a replacement spider would come with a new regulator but NOT a new line, so verify which is leaking before you order a spider up.

They do not fail that often anymore, not like 5 or 8 years ago when gasoline still had mtbe in it, the vortec unit is very dependable nowadays.

Dome light and key in ignition tone won't quit.

Yes, I would lean toward a stuck drivers door latch. Your door open switch is located in the latch itself and the ding is a reminder your key is in the ignition so you don't lock them in the vehicle when you lock the door. even though your door is shut, the truck still thinks it is open. sometimes spraying the latch with some WD-40 will get it freed up and working again, but a new latch might be in your future.
