SOURCE: 2002 Saturn Vue Ignition Cylinder lock problem

The keys on this vehicle have a problem with wearing down to the point where it's a pain to get them to work in the ignition cylinder. Examine your keys for wear and that may have been your problem since day one.
I have a 2004 Vue and I have the only key I got with it (used car) worn down to the point where it will no longer work in the back door and is a pain to use in the ignition cylinder. It also falls right out of the ignition cylinder when the car is running. I have a copy of the key that was made when I got the car which works just fine and doesn't fall out, and looking at the two side by side, you can see that Saturn's key has worn down substantially since I got it two years ago.

Put some pressure on the steering wheel in one direction or the other this may take the pressure off the cylinder itself and allow you to do what is needed...hope this works.

SOURCE: key wont come out of ignition in 1998 saturn sl2

I had the same problem, I found out that there was a spring that broke off in the shifter and got jamed into the shifter's path, I removed the spring and was able to get the key out after the shifter was all the way into the parked position. I however have another problem now, when I did so the wiring harness started to smoke the next day when I went to start the car.

SOURCE: 94 Saturn...Stopped the car and ignition key stuck

Unfortunately this model of saturn is known for this problem. Try tapping the head of the key lightly with a small hammer and then while shaking the wheel back and forth try to turn the key. The only known permanent fix is key cylinder repalacement.

My 95 Saturn sl 1 will not turn off sometimes even


Have you replaced the Ignition Switch located on the Steering Column behind the Key Cylinder and held in place with 5.5mm bolts? Inside this round switch there are contacts that when contact is made either provides the route for power to start and keep the flow of electricity on or it keeps it from flowing to the components need to keep it running.
The very first problem you may have had would be the Key Minder Audible signal continue sounding with the ignition key removed and drivers door open.

Key will insert but it is in lock position and will not turn over into any other position so I cant start the car. Toyota Corolla 2005, is there a way to lock it somehow?


I know it sounds a bit silly, but have you tried jiggling the key? ... that MIGHT help (it worked in my 95 Corolla when the same issue happened). If you have another key available (one that is not used as much) that could work too ... sometimes the key itself wears down, so the key does not fully depress all of the locking cylinders in the ignition. In other words, if the key is used a lot, it might be too worn out to work right, in which case you can get a new key and it should work just fine (this is what had happened in my 95 corolla)
If this is not working, and even with a less worn out key, the key is still locked in the "Lock" position, try turning the steering wheel back and forth a bit as you are turning the key. There is a safety mechanism in Toyotas that prevents the car from being used without the key (prevent hot-wiring) ... If the key is out of the ignition, and you turn the wheel, it locks up the ignition switch and the steering wheel of the car. Sometimes this mechanism gets stuck as well, and keeps you from being able to start your car. Moving the steering wheel back and forth as much as it will allow (usually only a couple of inches) should help to unlock your ignition and get you on your way.
Finally ... the locking mechanism of the ignition switch (what I was talking about in the last paragraph) sometimes breaks, and causes your car to remain locked, no matter what you do. In this case, you will need to go to a mechanic and replace the key / lock unit. It is not terribly expensive to have this done, but it means replacing all of your keys and spares ... DON'T FORGET TO REPLACE THE SPARES, TOO if you are going to go this route.

Keys Stuck in the Ignition , preventing turning off the engine.


Is the key stuck because you have an automatic transmission and you are unable to shift it into P (park)?

My car keys are stuck in the ignition system. (1994 Saturn). Can't turn it in or pull it out. Any ideas?


search on youtube for "saturn lock cylinder replacement". if you think you can do it, buy a generic lock cylinder at advance or autozone and give it a shot. if it works your ignition keys will not match your door and trunk keys but a dealer will charge you more than the value of the car to put in a new saturn lock cylinder.

'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.

The key is stuck in the ignition and won't come out. This is the second time this has happened. We replaced the ignition lock cylinder about six months ago to fix it the first time. That time the ignition...


try turning the steering wheel side to side while pulling on the key, the steering wheel will be locked, but just keep trying, it will eventually come out.

Cant get my key out of the ignition of my 95 Deville


Keys and Locks when worn will do this as will duplicate keys made not so perfectly. While keeping mild pressure on the key in the direction of removal, jiggle the steering wheel back and forth vigorisly. If you cannot get the shifter into park in oreder to remove the key, same deal, jiggle rapidly. Then see a lock smith

Good Luck!
