Key wont come out motor wont even click whats wrong


Try turning your steering wheel, some of the cars has a safety lock that will lock your tumblers in your ignition and the steering wheel which acts as an anti-theft systems. I would try turning your steering wheel to the left and right as much as you can which will not be much. Yes, I realize it seems a bit goofy, but I had vehicle that would not let go my key, but turning the steering wheel to the left and right and at the same time attempting to turn the ignition to the neutral position to get the key out was the only way to retrieve my key. It keeps people from putting the vehicle into Neutral and pushing your car away without the key.

Ignition key wont turn 2002 voyager


several things to try, try turning steering wheel in both directions and holding there while turning key, this checks to see if steering wheel lock is binding , lubricate lock with wd-40 or silicon spray, sticky inside? another choice is try different key as old one is worn and not disengaging all the tumblers, all fails you need new ignition cylinder.

The ignition wont turn at all and car is locked in park position.


IF you are parked with your wheels turned a little, sometimes the steering can get into kind of a bind and the steering wheel lock could be causing your problem. Did you try to move your steering wheel around a little bit to see if it will allow the key to turn? Is your key worn. I have seen worn keys that will cause your problem. Also the tumblers in your ignition could me messed up. You could try putting some dry graphite lube on your key and slide it in and out of your ignition several times to get lubrication into the tumblers and see if that helps.

Replaced the ignition key switch and now my steering wheel clicks when i turn it what do i do


I've seen the plastic covers not go together correctly and rub the steering wheel. try removing the Key and tumbler and turn the steering wheel. Is the noise gone? Sometimes the new tumbler will not pull back the steering wheel lock enough and it will rub alittle. Check the steering wheel lock to see if it's pulling all the way away from the steering wheel.

2005 Kia amanti ignition key wont turn?


You may have a broken ignition tumbler, or is your steering wheel turned all the way to one side? If so, apply pressure on the steering wheel in the same direction that your tires are already turned, at the same time try turning your key forward. Your steering wheel lock may be denying you to turn your key. hope this helps

Ignition tumbler locked up. Key still works well in doors. Steering wheel is not locking, but key wont turn


try a spare key, or push key into lock while turning
it is the tip [pointy end] of the key that releases the switch tumbler lock allowing it to turn. keys & switches wear out, a 'heavy' key ring especially wears the switch.

Steering wheel locked and ignition wont turn


Yes it does sound to me like the key is the problem.
the only other thing for a steering locking up would be the steering lock silenoid but that is activated by the brake pedal and the key has to be turned
if this is the orginal key it could be something else because the key and the tumblers inside the ingintion would wear down the same time together,but is the is a replacement key or back-up it will be the key because the tumblers would have been worn done by a different key.
try wiggling the key as you turn maybe you can get it to turn.
You will likely have to replace the ignition and key together.
