I've recently had this same issue. I spreayed some key lock lubricant (Graphite based) into the key slot several times and it got a little easier but didn't quite solve the problem. I then figured out that if I tilt the steering wheel all the way up the key removes normally. Other than that the dealer wanted to replace the entire ignition lock to the tune of a couple of hundred bucks.
Good luck!!

SOURCE: Car will turn off but I can't get the key out of

I have the same car and the same problem. Take the screw out of the casing behind the steering wheel on the ignition side. Carefully lift the top piece of casing up enough to slide the screw driver in. Directly above the ignition is a white plastic switch. Push the switch in a couple time with the screw driver and try to take the keys out. I think that piece gets jammed which prevents the keys from coming out. It only happens once in a while. Good luck!

SOURCE: I need timing specs for 3.5 2002 Isuzu Axiom

I have found that one can mark (Paint pen) the gears and teeth (One tooth and one corresponding belt rib) on each gear prior to removing the belt. You can then overlay the old belt on a new belt and mark the same spots on the new belt and then install the belt so your marks on the gears and belt line up as they did before you removed the old belt. Given that your timing was right to start with....if done correctly, this will work.

SOURCE: replace thermostat on isuzu axiom

I just had a garage replace my thermostat on my 2002 Isuzu Axiom. The book calls for 2 hrs labor, no way. iI took the garage more like 5 hrs plus, they ate the additional 3 hrs of labor. Note, the intake manifold must be removed and even then special tools are needed because it is still buried deep down. The garage took pictures ot this one because of how ridiculours Isuzu designed the location.

just a guess on this one , some ignition barrels have a button underneath the key barrel , and to remove key you must push this in and turn key back one more klick away from start direction .

i am hoping that original key is in ignition , you can get ignition barrel replaced with new keys , but some steerng parts need dissasembling .
and some are pains to remove .
hope it was this simple !

sounds likte the steering is in a bind, turn the key back on and turn the steering wheel one way then the other. then try removing key again. Any kind of bind in the steering will prevent the key from turning. I hope this helps.

2002 Axiom drivers side windshield wiper doesn't work

the wiper arm mount is keyed(*tab to slot style) and it may have broken. Remove the wiper arm and look for the grooves.. no groves then it has been stripped and broken. Some also have a nut on top of the mounting point as a retainer. Just basically check where the wiper is attached to the control assembly.
