This is fairly common problem. It will need a new ignition lock cylinder most likley. I would contact dealer and see if they can help with some assistance from gm. The new cylinder has to be keyed and all so will need to go to dealer or locksmith

It sounds like a dead battery or battery connections. The keys won't come out, because there is a positive feed wire to the lock cylinder that will not allow it to turn the lock position when there is no power.

I have the blank key cut for my 2007 Equinox, how do I program it?

Hello and welcome. this is how you learn a new key. please note this is for adding a new key. you must still have one working key for this to work.

Adding Keys Important: • To initiate, this procedures requires that a learned master key be available. • A total of 10 keys may be programmed to a single vehicle. • This procedure adds keys only. The procedure does not erase previously learned keys. • The keys to be learned must duplicate the mechanical cut of the current key. • If more than one valet key is to be learned, immediately precede each valet key with a learned master key.
  1. With a previously learned master key, turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
  2. Turn OFF the ignition and remove the key.
  3. Within 10 seconds of turning OFF the ignition, insert the key to be learned and turn ON the ignition. The vehicle has now learned the new key.

The problem we are having is that when we turn our 2008 Equinox off the key will stick sometimes where we can not remove the key. What would be causing the key to stick when you turn the car off?

Your Ignition switch cylinder is bad. You have a fairly new car and it may still have some Warranty left. Then there could be a Service Bulletin for extended coverage if this problem is common. Check with the Chevy Dealer first before spending your own money.

Make sure the battery is good and if it is call a tow truck the only solution is a new ignition they are known for this. Not so much the equinox but the pontiac torrent, but they are the same thing.
