You might have to dismantle the key ignition assembly on your steering column. Have you tried getting some channel locks or some pliers to swiftly yank out the key? Is the key bent inside the ignition? If so, you have a problem on your hands and you'll have to remove the assembly and most replace it.

Ignition key in my 2005 Chev Blazer 4x4 will not turn to the off position making it impossible to get the key out, thus the battery drains down.

your going to have to readjust your ignition switch which is mounted on your steering column below the dash. there will be a rod that goes up inside it.

1996 Chevy Cav. When i put key in to ignition,

Hi Jamie,
As you turn the key, **** the steering wheel hard side-to-side. The anti-theft interlock between the ignition switch and the steering is just jammed. Happens to all cars from time-to-time, and that's the fix.
