Check the key itself if the blade is worn out then it won't push back all the tumbler keys not allowing the tumbler to turn. try a newer key and replace the ignition tumbler asap..

Key won't come out of ignition on 1999 vw jetta


IGNITION KEY WILL NOT RELEASE

It can be faulty ignition lock cylinder. I suggest to wiggle the steering wheel a bit and see if the key gets released out. If that is not helping then first turn steering wheel to right and try removing the key, or next turn steering wheel to left and see if you can remove the key.

----------

Spray wd-40 in the ignition key hole and let it remain there for few minutes, after that once again try to remove the key and see if that helps.

---------

But if that is not helping then ignition lock cylinder has to be removed out and key has to be manually removed.

Key won't turn


hi there,

Your car has a steering lock that clicks into place when you take the car key out of the ignition. This prevents thieves from being able to steer your car if they hotwire it. Sometimes the wheel is turned to just the right place to keep your key from being able to disengage that steering wheel lock. All you have to do is turn the wheel a little bit in either direction while you turn they key. and your done!

1999 Toyota Camary, steering wheel locked and ignition will not turn to start car. You can turn the key to accessory and power up radio, ect. but will no turn to start car. any suggetions


Some cars will lock the steering wheel when the ignition is turned to the lock position. To try and start the car, grab the steering wheel and try to move the steering wheel back and forth while turning the ignition key at the same time. Be aware that the steering wheel could require a pretty good yank before the ignition unlocks.

Hope that helps
