Hello My firiend, I had the same problem like you two times, basically what the technician told me was that the mechanism of the transmission shaft was worn, so what you only need to do is to "push" the shaft from the chrome rod and thatt's it.

Sorry if you I could not explain you exactly how to solve this, My english in not so good at this time so I hope that this works for you.

My key is stuck in the ignition.


Your car has several different ignition positions. They each offer slightly different functionality.
Off: In this position, the engine is off, and so are your electronic accessories (unless the delay has not expired yet). You can still turn on lights (headlights, interior lights, etc.).
ACC: This is the accessory position. Turn the key to ACC if you want to listen to the radio, play a CD or use other accessories without cranking the engine.
On: In this position, all of the electronics should come on. This is also the position that the key will return to after cranking the engine.
Start: Turn the key to this position to crank the engine. Let go of the key when the engine is running and the key will return to the on position.

I use to own a car that had an ignition that was ACC - OFF - ON - START.

Try turning your ignition one position clockwise and see if the radio turns off and the key comes out.

check the ground leg to your engine.. it runs off the neg. battery terminal. will connect to frame and engine.. pull it off, wire brush it put it back.. you radio will work, 'cause it draws much less current, and is grounded in dash.

I cant turn my key to the off position on my 2000 chevy malibu ! what is the problem ?


is the car fully in park if it is then u may have a prob with the park lock. In normal operation the key wont turn off all the way if it is not in park check to see if the censor is working or engaging. If all is working correctly then it might be that the tumblers in the ignition lock cylinder are the problem

Car won't start. Battery power seems fine. Turn the key, no cranking, lights and radio die with key in "start" position.


Hello davidoz,

Your description sounds like a bad battery. Do you have a volt meter to watch the voltage as you turn the key to start? The voltage on a good battery( meaning fully charged) should stay about 11 volts while cranking, if it drops below that suspect a bad battery.

Another possibility is that the battery is good but the alternator is not charging.

Will it start with a jump? If is does check with a volt meter the out put of the alternator it should be 13.8 volts or slightly higher.

Regards,
netvan

Car wont start. when key is turned i get weird clicks.


You said you checked your battery, did you check volts and amps? It's possible that your battery is not functioning properly. You may need a new one. Does it start if you try to jumpstart it?

97 Malibu. V6-3100. Starter turns engine, but car


I think you may have answered your own question. I would check to see if the fuel pump is turning on when you turn the key on to the run position. You should hear a buzz sound coming from the gas tank. I would start there.

My radio and shift selector light stays on when I remove the key,


The ignition cylinder has a taper at the back that move the switch in whatever position. The key has to be turned back to off. It happened to me when I pulled the key out it was still half way on but then i just move it back in place. Its a sloppy cylinder from age.
