The ignition switch is causing a jamb in the rod that is attached to the actuator. You will need to remove the screws holding the column and move the actuator rack to re-set it. Click on the link below to read more:

Hi! Please spray WD40 on the ignition slot. It surely is stuck and spraying WD40 will help loosen the key to turn to the OFF position. By then you can turn the key off and pull it out. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

Sometimes the steering lock jams the ignition tumblers. You can try to turn the wheel a little and the key should come out if this is the problem. If this does not work then it could also be the shifter linkage binding it up. Try wiggling the shifter while turning the key to the off position. If neither one of these work then you may have to replace the whole tumbler.

How do I remove the ignition lock on my 1998 Mazda Protege? Tumblers are stuck. Key won't go past accessory.


if ou do not have the key, look at the replacement lock there'll be a tab which recesses when the key is turned to acc or on position. It is that tab which prevents you from removing lock cylinder it has to be forced into a recessed position or drilled to where the cylinder can removed. If u do then locate tab turn key to acc or on and push tab to recessed position and remove cylinder.

I changed the heater core in our 99 Blazer (S-10) and after getting the dash back in, I put the key in and turned it back to "Accessory" to turn the radio on - that worked (although thinking...


I makes no difference if the key is in the switch (stuck or not) when removing the switch. The process is the same. Once removed you may want to take the lock to a local locksmith and have them check it. It may be much cheaper to service the lock than replace it. Also if you do opt for a new lock take it to the locksmith and have it keyed to your old key so you don;t have to carry two keys (one for the ignition & one for the doors).

Key locks in the ignition in the ACC position. can't take key out


when you turn key to acc pos that is telling the ignition to go into a accessory mode which runs the radio,wipers etc... but it doesnt allow the ignition circuit to run, and the key in most vehicles will not be able to come out,this is a security protection so that you do not leave accessories on that will drain the battery. The ignition key should only be able to be removed in the OFF position.

Ignition is stuck in run position


does your key stays in the ignition position? or can you turn it back to acc or lock? it might be a stuck ignition switch mechanism inside or a shorted circuit that latches the ignition...have it checked or you can try to open it the switch yourself..but with caution if this is your first time. Pls give me a feedback. thanks!

Key lock cylinder won't come out....


cars have a lock position to protect the car from being stolen by theives. When we park the car with the wheels turned to the sides it gets locked in that position and the key can sometimes nbe hard to take out. Try moving the steering wheel in both directions as much as possible while pushing in the key and trying to jiggle it to turn. If you can get it out, the next time , park your car with the wheels facing forward. I hope this works.
