I have a 2005 Buick Century and the key is in the ignition it is not stuck but the ignition switch will not turn in the car will not come out of park was working fine yesterday

you have shift interlock on this vehicle? My first thought was to set parking brake, then bypass the shift interlock, shift into neutral, then see if it will start and drive? Your owners manual should have info on the shift interlock.

Sometimes a steering wheel lock mechanism, puts a bind on the key cylinder. Pulling the steering wheel, one way or the other may take the bind off the lock cylinder and let it turn?
There could be other issues?

Ignition key will not turn.

This happens to me sometimes because the pressure of the steering lock is enough to keep me from being able to turn the key. Try moving the steering wheel while turning the key, if that doesn't work, flip the key over and try again (unless it is a one sided key), if that doesn't work, then you are likely looking at a bad lock cylinder and it will have to be replaced.

How do I bleed the brakes on a 98 buick century

start at the closest wheel to the brake master cylinder, you will need someone to pump the brake pedal to build up pressure then hold it down while you release the bleed nipple on the wheel brake cylinder then push the pedal to the floor to release the air & keep it down until you tighten the bleed screw then release the pedal & repeat the process on each wheel from front to back making shore that all the air is out of the lines DO NOT let the brake master run out of brake fluid ( keep topping it up)......hope this helps.....cheers.

Steering wheel and ignition key are locked

If the steering wheel was turn a little bit when the ignition was turn off it will be tough to unlock the ignition, try turning the steering wheel to the right or left pretty hard and hold it while you try to turn the ignition key on that should loosen the lock up a little
Good luck

Changing an ignition cylinder on a 1995 buick century

There is a special spring compressor used to compress the lock plate spring underneath it, then you will be able to remove the snap ring holding the lock plate down, and lock plate spring. You will then need to remove the blinker multi function switch. You will then have access to the bolt holding in the ignition cylinder. There are 2 wires attached to it that run down the inside of the steering column that will need to be unplugged at the base, and new wires threaded down through the steering column when installing the new ignition lock cylinder.
