You can remove the ignition module as a whole and Dis-Assemble it to remove the tumblers and get the key back that way. If your replacing the Ignition set anyway once you get the module removed you can install the new on and toss the old one. You can have the doors and trunk re-keyed by a locksmith to match the new key. Make sure you remove any key chain you have attached to the ignition key that is stuck and follow the removal steps for the ignition module. Should be fine.

Key stuck in ignition of 1976 chevy corvette stingray 350 auto


If I understand, the key will not rotate to all of the normal positions? If this is true, then I would guess that the trani didn't fully return to the park position please verify, You can check the ignition switch(the one that is half way down the steering column) for defects. Is there any binding, does the rotate freely? Thank you; good luck.

Ignition lock will not turn to off position so key can be removed


If its a auto then There is a cable that runs from the shifter to the lock cylinder and allows the key to go to lock and release when in park. I had the same issue with my 85 but I just pulled off the shifter cover and sprayed all the cables and what not with wd-40 and as good as new.

1985 corvette wont start


NEVER use either!! EVER! It burns very dry and can destroy a gas engine! Just give it a bit of gas down the intake.But keep the can away after each try! Far away! Not sure how you are getting 32v?? That can't be volts! Silly question, but is there fuel in the tank?? Have seen this before! It would be great to learn how this all started?? [or should i say stopped] lol Check the fuel line for a pin hole. It sounds like it is sucking air. Really need a bit more info. OK Frankster016
