Question about 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix

1 Answer

2002 chevy trailblazer

My key gets stuck in the ignition when I try to start the car and all of the energy is gone from the vehicle. There is no energy going back to the vehicle after I try that and the key is still stuck. Parked our 01 Grand Prix at the store, came back out, unlocked the doors with keyless entry, put key in ignition, turned to start and lost all power in car, and key wouldn't come out. I understand the key positioning is a safety feature, keeping the transaxle from locking and being damaged by towing. I'm gonna look at the battery terminals, cables, and such as we replaced a bad battery a couple of months ago that had corroded pretty bad.

Cant find the key release on 2006 chevy trailblazer. Key stuck in ignition


There is no key release on that vehicle. The key should come right out. Has the key being bent or twisted before? Also make sure steering wheel is not turned all the way to one side or the other.

I have towed several of these with same problem. Sounds like to me it needs to go back in for the ignition switch again. Unless it's not going into park. If it's not going into park it would be a shift linkage issue and needs to be adjusted. Chris J.C. Towing & Recovery

Key stuck in ignition of Trailblazer.


There is a small 1/4'' oblong cover plate on the underside of the stearing column. Pop this out and there is a button you push in ( like the Crysler key relase) and this will allow you to remove the key.

Ignition switch on a 2002 chevy trailblazer


under the steering column, there are three or four little holes in the plastic covering. If you look inside, one of them (the one on the right side toward the dash) there is a brass pin inside. This is the pin to release the key. As far as the key not turning, I have had the same problem. The first time I replaced the ignition switch and that solved the problem. However, this makes no sense because the ignition switch has nothing to do with the tumbler being locked. GMC thinks that my anti theft system, which is inside the ignition cylinder is the problem. By removing the ignition switch, it reset the pass lock anti-theft system and temporarily fixed the problem. So, try removing the ignition switch and then plugging it back in. If that doesn't work, your in the same boat as I am, and we may both need new ignition cylinders.
