My key gets stuck in the ignition sometimes and cannot be turned into the complete off position. I turn it back and forth and most of the time I can get it out, though sometimes I have to leave it.

My key won't go into ignition on my 2007 jetta


Try moving wheel back and forth while putting key in. Or if thats not it, take a screw driver flathead and try to turn ignition both ways just a bit. Sometimes those key cylinders dont go back into the open key position. Try that as you are moving the whhel as well. but my car does the same thing in the cold, and a screw driver seems to do it every time. Good luck let me know how you make out. PS Im guessing that ther is not something stuck inside ignition?? Good luck

My key gets stuck in the ignition. i have never had this problem before. the key slides in fine but it won't go to lock position. it was working fine all day until i had my oil changed. then it just quit,...


I am not sure what the cause is but mine started doing this the other day. My temporary solution is to wiggle the shifter while in the park position. You'll hear it clicking in the steering column. Between each wiggle back and forth try turning the key to the lock position. Sometimes mine take 3 or so tries, and sometimes 10 to 15. My car has also started to get stuck in the park position. I believe it is in direct relation to the ignition seizing up.

The key stuck in ignition car will not shut completely off


Try to play with gear shifter , back and forth from P to D.
Sometimes P lock solenoid will not disengauge , which prevent the key to turn all the way back to 0 position.

'95 rodeo cant turn the key, the key is not stuck,the cylinder is


Try turning the steering wheel while trying to turn the ignition. Didn't work? Can you remove the key? Use some WD40 with the tube and spray a little in. Put the key in, pull it out, repeat several times. Put the key in and wiggle the ignition lock back and forth.(try while wiggling the steering wheel back and forth, too.) Still won't move? Try pulling the key out just a small fraction of an inch and try turning the ignition.

Still no solution, time to give up and call a locksmith.
