Shake ya sterring wheel from side to side and try turning ya key. The lock could be stuck and needs to be freed up. This should do the trick.

My key wont turn my ignition on my 2001 dodge stratus what could be making this happen?


The steering lock is most likely jammed or possibly broken in the ignition locking position. Most cars have a plastic slide in the ignition which can become sticky and not return or the spring return mechanism wears out. Best to start by taking the ignition to bits and see if the plastic slide is stuck. light oil or WD40 should do the trick for a long time.

The ignition is stuck on my 99 Nissan Altima. We


Have you tried to turn the wheel far to the left as you try to turn the key? Also try to turn the key backwards in the ignition while holding wheel to the left. If those don't work, maybe try sliding the key in with a little WD-40 as this will lubricate the ribs in the ignition slightly and just insert/remove key slowly and quickly a few times and then try the steps above.

Does the car have a key release button? Sometimes these get stuck with the wheel turned slightly and the ribs of the ignition will not close on the key to allow for operation of the ignition.

Let me know,

Someone may have tried to steal the car and damaged the lock's internal pins. Replace the entire lock with new.

Key stuck in on position cant turn car off


This sounds like a warn ignition lock. The tumblers probably are warn down and have too much slop so the unit is jamming. Try wiggling the key around as you turn. Good luck.

Key stuck in ignition


Take the steering column cover off and tap/hit the ignition barrel with suitable tool (small hammer)while twisting on key.It may be enough to loosen it so key comes out.You will have to remove steering column cover to swap with replacment barrel anyway .Get someone to turn steering wheel while tapping/hitting barrel as it could be the steering column lock pin thats jamming.good luck.
