Try squrting some CRC lubricate or WD 40, Sounds like a tumbler in the cylynder has stuck and has the key locked in as it does when the car is running. After squrting just a little bit in the cylynder , not a lot turn key to run and then back to accesery and back till you loosen up the tumblers and your key will come out, once you get the key out check to make shure key is not worn , and clean key then spray key with slicone lubricate and run the key in and out of switch just to lubricate the tumblers and keep them from sticking again.if this dont fix it you will need to replace the key switch and you will need a shop to do it.

I have 98 grand prix ignition is stuck in start had to pull fuel pump fuse but cant shut car off lights are still on


Suggest disconecting the battery. Then you can work on the problem. it is not clear if the issue is the key stuck in the start position in the iginition switch or if the starter motor is stuck (running) after the car starts. If it the starter motor is running... Time for a new starter. If it is the ignition switch, try
pushing the key in and turning back off. Still stuck? Try pulling pn the key and turning off. Either way, if it is the key, yime for a new ignition switch.

Key stuck ignition wont


This usually happens if your steering wheel is in the rightmost or the leftmost position. Try wiggling the steering wheel when pulling out the key.

'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.

I am having trouble figuring out how to remove the key switch


  1. Remove the screws on the underside of the steering column cover and pull the cover down.
  2. Put the key into the ignition and turn the key to the "II" position.
  3. Slide the punch pin into the Silverado's access hole on the underside of the steering column under the ignition.
  4. Push up on the punch pin while you pull the ignition out of the steering column.

My 1997 audi a4 the ignition key is stuck. what


OK first thing- Car has to be in park to pull the key from the ingnition. if it is and you still cant pull it, rock the wheel back and forth alittle (sometimes the columb lock doesnt lock properly and you cant release the key until it locks, rocking the wheel usually fixes this problem). and the last possibility is that the tumblers in your ignition have broken, when this happens you cant pull the key from the ignition because you cant turn the key back to the off possition all the way. when this happens you don't want to pull the key because you risk not being able to put it back in the ignition later and are forced to replace the ignition so you can drive your car. However if the tumblers are indeed broken you will have to replace the ignition anyway, atleast by leaving the key in it you can still drive the car until its replaced

Key wont pull out with the batery hooked up


this is a safety feature so that someone cant just run up to your car, turn the engine off and yank the key out. Usually there are 2 way to remove the key..

1.) There is a switch under the ignition or thereabout which you need to hold down as you shut the engine off and pull the key out. After which you can release the switch..

2.) turn the engine off as well as the ignition (all the dash lights go off) rock the stearing left and right while you pull the key out. This locks the stearing and releases the key.

Key broke off in ignition


use a toothpick with a tiny drop of super glue on the end - touch the glue end to the end in the ignition, and let it dry for a few - make sure the key is in the off position, and try to pull it out using the toothpick.
