Car battery completely dead - Caused the Key to be stuck

The other day my car battery completely died. We left it on the charger and nothing happened. When we put the key in the ignition it got stuck and wont come out. The steering wheel moves freely. I want to know if the problem is caused by the dead battery, and if replacing the battery will release the key. Thank you

Yes. It has to have power to the ignition switch to be able to get the key out. Replace the batttery.

New battery In mercedes no power


I'm not a car mechanic, but, it sounds like you might want to check the fuse to the ignition switch, and, if that fails, it might be a problem with the Start Safety Switch on the transmission. Good luck.

Try the reset for the key switch , hook up battery charger or maintainer to battery then turn key on do not crank engine leave key in on position for ten minutes , repeat a total of three times then turn key switch to off position after third cycle then remove key . Then reinstall key to ignition switch then crank the engine over and see if that fixes your issue .

There is a button on the bottom side of the steering column to release the key. Need to check out the ignition interlock solenoid to make sure it's getting power to release the key.

Battery dead, key stuck in ignition.


I have had the same problem with my daughter's car. She inadvertnetly left the key in the on position and the battery went dead. Apparently an electrical current is neded to withdraw the key. I put a battery charger on the car for several hours and everything worked fine after that.

Check your battery terminals. They may be corroded or just loose. If you get it running again have the battery and charger tested at an Advance or Autozone.

Hope this helps.
