I have a 97 Pontiac Sunfire...The key is stuck in the ignition turned on...won't turn off...How do I get the key out?


Make sure the car is in park, if that does not work, put it in neutral and try. Search for a button under the ignition key to release the key. Also turn the steering wheel so it is not in a locked position. Good luck!

Key stuck in ignition of 97 grand prix


If you can turn key, start it up. Shift into gear, back into park, wheels straight ahead. turn key off. See if you can get it out then by wiggling key. If your wheels are locked at an angle, it might have something to do with it. Try pulling wheel away from lock position.
Other than that, a little spray of lubricant into lock cyliinder might help. Give it a few minutes to soak in. I'm not sure if a locksmith could help, but worth a call to ask them.
If you can put key in run position, I think you would be able to remove lock cylinder. You have to pull the steering column covers off to remove cylinder. There is a procedure, pretty easy. Good luck.

I believe you need a Coded Key for your vehicle.. If your original key had a chip underneath the black cover of the key. You may need to get the ignition switch an the key from the Dealer, an once it is installed they will have to Code it.. Goodluck..

Try wiggling the gearshift lever when you put it in park. I have a Chevette that does the same thing. If that doesn't work, I would check the actual ignition switch that is down on the steering column under the dash. It could either be worn or out of adjustment. Any questions I'll be glad to help.
