Well, that only leaves the ignition itself as being at fault. You'll have to remove it and take it to a lock smith to get the key out or out right replace it.

Key won;t turn and steering wheel and brake are locked - ??

Sounds like your steering wheel is turned to either direction causing the pin to be stuck due to the pressure. Turn the steering wheel to the direction it seems to be turned. Hold that position while turning the key. It might require a little muscle power to hold it in place.

Key stuck in ignition battery is dead, cant get the key out

Most vehicles you have to have power to remove the key from the ignition. It will go in and turn, but not completely turn back to the off position.

Keys stuck in ignition. its in park. ( and 3 days out of warrenty)

In the ring around the ignition switch (where your key is stuck) there is a recessed dimple. Get a ballpoint pen, insert into the dimple, hold it there while turning your key to the lock position (if it's not already there) and remove the key.

Key stuck in Accessory position

If you are worried about battery drain then I would disconnect the battery while you are at work so no one can steal your car and this will prevent it from going dead until you get the issue fixed.

I would also make sure the vehicle is all the way in park, smark it into park a few times really good. Some vehicles require that they be in park for the key to be released from the ignition and your vehicle is older and the shifter may be a little worn and it might not be releasing the key properly.

It doesn't sound as if your ignition switch if locked up since it will rotate to all settings. You can also try moving the steering wheel from left to right while you try to pull the key out in the locked position. Ultimately you will need to repair either the lock r shifter mechanism.

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.

Key stuck, won't turn, won't shift...replace ignition switch?

Before you replace the switch try this. As you try to turn the key rock the steering wheel back and forth. The key may turn then, if so it was stuck due to pressure from the steering wheel lock. If it still doesn't turn yes the key and tumbler are bad.

How to get key out that is stuck in ignition

Remove steering column shroud(cover)and tap ignition barrel with small hammer while twisting key backwards and forwards,also turn steering wheel backwards and forwards sometimes this is enough to release key as the locking pins in barrel and the steering lock pin do sometimes jam.You will have to remove steering column shroud to replace ignition barrel if tapping/hitting it doesnt work anyway so its not a wasted effort.Good luck,let me know how it works out
