If steering wheel is left full turn to one side, it puts pressure on the key. When you try to start, hold full pressure on the steering wheel to the left or right to relieve pressure on the key. Then the key should turn.
Hope this helps.

Key stuck in ignition car stuck in park key won't go to off position


There may be to much pressure on the steering wheel lock for it to go into the off position. put the parking brake on. put the shifter in neutral gently turn the steering wheel in the opposite direction of where the wheels are pointed and try turning the key to the off position. Good Luck

I have a 95 camaro, I put the key in ignition and it will not turn the ignition. It's like it's stuck. Replaced the ignition module and still cannot turn ignition. Help!


the ignition module (ignition switch on top of the steering column) normally doesn't get stuck.

things you can try:
steering wheel lock: (the pin gets a "burr" on it and locks everything up) wiggle steering wheel back and forth while trying to turn key.

transmission lock (parking on an incline will jam up the interlock)
push the shifter farther into park while trying to turn the key, or wiggle shifter

Thats a chevy for ya ! Theres something weird between the shifter and the ignition. Turn the key as far as you can off, then put it in nuetrel. Start the car and it if starts, put it in park and turn the key off, if it is still stuck, keep trying .

The key is stuck in the ignition of my gm equinox. after i put my car on park, i was unable to get the key out of the ignition. The key is stuck won't even turn. please help.


It's part of the steering lock mechanism causing the issue. You probably turned everything off while the wheels were off center. Grab your steering wheel and pull it counter-clockwise with some strength and at the same time, try turning your ignition key. It should release.

Key stuck in ignition of 1996 Toyota 4Runner


This truck has a switch in the shifter assembly that tells the ignition the truck is in Park or not. If the shifter doesn't hit that switch right this can happen. Also, there is a component in the ignition (a solenoid) that allows the key to be released if the Park switch is pushed. To be sure it's one of these two things, try this.... Get the key stuck, then disconnect the battery. If the key comes right out, it's either the switch or the solenoid. Good luck!
