Key ignition wont turn


APPLY BRAKE AND MAKE SURE STEERING WHEEL IS CENTERED. IF IT IS PARKED SO THERE IS PRESSURE ON THE FRONT WHEELS AND HOLDING THE STEERING WHEEL HARD RIGHT OR LEFT IT WILL MAKE THE KEY VERY HARD TO TURN.

My 2009 chevy cobalt will not turn off. the key is stuck in the on position, we had to remove the battery to shut the car off. how do we get the key out?


you will need to replace the entire lock cylinder with keys. A bent tumbler inside the lock is causing your problem

I have a 2009 chev colbolt and last night I could not get the car to shut off. I couldn't get the ignition switch to turn back to the off position. I had to pull the fuse on the fuel pump and disconnect...


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you spray wd40 on the ignition. This will loosen the mechanism and can get it back to it's normal condition.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

2009 MC300C - I want to reset service message after oil change. I am 150 miles from nearest MB dealer.


Reset “wrench” service light

1.) Turn the key to the on position (do not start car)
2.) Press trip reset button 3 times until service shows
3.) HOLD DOWN reset button
4.) WHILE HOLDING button, turn key off
5.) While key is in off position release the button and repress
6.) Turn key back on holding down the reset button
7.) Wait until service resets

This has to be done in 10 seconds. It may take a couple tries.
Variations include...make sure door is shut and car in neutral.
