Ignition key won t turn


The ignition key won't turn likely because the shifter linkage that locks the key in OFF is worn or loose. Move the shifter linkage hard to the Park position and the key will turn. Have the linkage adjusted and the worn parts replaced

Every time I try to turn the key, it won't turn. The steering wheel is NOT locked. Is my ignition switch gone bad? I have a 2002 Nissan altima


The key is worn out. Take the key and your VIN number. Located in the windshield drivers side at the bottom or on the drivers door or in the door jam . Take them to the dealer and they will cut u a new key.

Steering wheel won't lock, key won't come out


If the ignition normally only locks with the vehicle in park position, then check the switch on the gear lever mechanism is working.
If not, then you'll have to jiggle and wiggle that key out or replace the ignition lock.

2003 honda accord/ key wont turn,steering wheel is locked


To fix your problem, you have to turn the steering wheel either to the left or right as much as you can, then try to turn the key in the ignition. When the steering wheel locks, the key won't turn. By manually holding the steering wheel out of the lock position, the key will turn again and you're steering column will be back to normal.

Have a 1997 buick skylark and my ignition key will not turn and the steering wheel is lock. what can I do?


if the wheels are turned you can try to remove the pressure on the steering wheel by turning the steering wheel just a little and then try turning the the key.sometimes when there is too much pressure against the steering the key won`t turn,if this is the problem.you also can try to use another key as if the one your using is worn enough it may not turn and another one will.if neither of these suggestions will work then you may have to replace the ignition key switch and keys.

Key stuck in ignition but it will turn, and steering column won't lock and car won't start.


you most likely have a bad key switch cylinder assembly. you can try to spray wd40 solvent into the switch before you have the switch replaced,but sometimes it's a switch replacement that repairs the problem. have you inspected your ignition key to look for damage to the key itself? try a spare key to make sure it's the key,and not the key switch. you can also try turning the key while turning the steering wheel at the same time to get the key to work.sometimes the switch locks when parked in a bind,such as on a hill,or against a curb and so on. try this 1st before you have the ignition switch replaced. AAA auto club,if you're a member covers part of the replacement costs for a replacement switch also. you may have coverage through a cell phone also.one more thing to try, if you have a tilt steering column,try to reposition the steering wheel to see if you can get the key to turn. remember never force it enough to break your key off into the switch! thank you for choosing fixya.com!
