Try this first ...put foot on brake and move gearstick up/down several times through the gate,it may free off the park solenoid.if not thats the first thing to change.

How do i get my ignition to to turn if it is stuck?


Sometimes the steering wheel lock can bind up causing the key to be difficult to turn. Try turning the steering wheel one way and then the other while trying to turn the key. It sometimes works.

Ingnition key is stuck in the ignition. Unable to remove.


your vehicle is stuck in steering lock mode move your steering wheel towards the resistance but not to the wheel locks again just 2 inch of movement should be fine also be sure to push your key in before you rotate to the off position and that you did not go past off to accessory mode. goodluck

Key stuck in the ignition. Position indicator


Hi there,
try turning the wheel to the right/left while turning the key in the ignition. You have to apply some force. Your car is probably outliving its road life.

The key will turn far enough to start the accessories but will not move far enough to turn the engine on.


try turning steering wheel a bit, or move shifter up past park. Otherwise ignition may have a broken or stuck pin and will need to be replaced.

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

Key stuck in ignition


Take the steering column cover off and tap/hit the ignition barrel with suitable tool (small hammer)while twisting on key.It may be enough to loosen it so key comes out.You will have to remove steering column cover to swap with replacment barrel anyway .Get someone to turn steering wheel while tapping/hitting barrel as it could be the steering column lock pin thats jamming.good luck.
