It must have been weather related. When it warmed up, the key worked and the steering column unlocked.

My key is stuck in the ignition of my 1993 Saturn and won't move or come out. I thought maybe I had left my lights on last night since the car didn't start and the battery seemed to be dead, but then


Your ignition could be stuck. That happened to me on my 2002 Chevy Malibu with 150,000 miles on it. The ignition sometimes gets stuck and freezes up. You'll have to pull it out and put a new one in. You can use the new key or have it re keyed to fit your old keys.

Key won't come out of ignition, car won't start, panic alarm goes off when I try to start it


Sounds to me like you need a new ignition switch. Take the vehicle to a mechanic and have them further evaluate.

My 2005 won't turn off and has even started on it's own with no key in ignition...just statred happening last night. Had t disconnect battery to stop car. Seems like car doesn't realize the key is out!


We have had several issues with the ignition, had to have the locksmith save us at the gas pump with a stuck key and had problems starting many times. This is different but try WD40 sprayed directly into the key hole and work the key. With the cost of fuel it might be worth trying.

Key won't turn in 2002 Jeep Liberty, can't start. Battery seems fine (at least enough power for clock, dome lights, and power locks), and vehicle operated normally a few hours earlier. Key simply won't...


put the key in the ignition and tap the key farther into the cylinder and turn. should work. seems like a chrysler problem! a handy tow truck driver showed me this solution last night. you can have the cylinder replaced if this keeps happening or just keep a handy-dandy whacking object in your center console for just such an occassion!

Problem with starting my 2003 dodge ram


My father has the same problem with his 2001 Chrysler Sebring, the key will go into the ignition switch but wont turn. Called the dealer and seems the tumblers inside the ignition have gotten stuck, the solution... put the key in the ignition and tap it gently with a hammer (plastic tip if you have it) and it worked fine. Not sure what the guys at Autozone are pull but on a Ram 5.7 Hemi there are individual coils, not one, I should know I also have a 2003 Ram 1500 and have changed the plugs (not fun)... I have a code scanner (Hypertec) and when I've gotten a check engine light I check it with the scanner. Turned out mine had a problem with the air sensor in the intake. $15 part fixed the problems. Good Luck.

2003 Trailblazer- no power after key stuck in ignition


Sounds like an antitheft problem I would start with the antitheft system. Usually when you only have one key all keys have to be programmed together even the original. When you have more than one it is easy to program additional keys.
