Key stuck in ignition

I have a 2005 Honda Accord. The key is stuck in the ignition. I tried moving the steering wheel, checking the park shift , putting my foot on the brake. Nothing seems to work. Do you have any suggestions?

    My 2002 Honda Civic automatic is completely immobilized. No lights etc., the gear lever won't move and the foot brake won't move. Tried usual key and spare key, but no difference. Any ideas?

    I used the slide out key from the remote in the ignition. It is stuck in there and won't seem to release. Any ideas or suggestions.

There a several recalls that deal with this problem, it seems that due to a defective part in the ignition interlock system at times the key not be removed from the ignition, it appears the issue is corrected by installing a new lock cylinder, to read the full text of recalls on this issue go to link listed below.

I have a 2003 accord and I couldn't get the key out. I had inadvertently pulled up the parking brake and forgot to put the car in park. Once I noticed what I had done, I put it in park and the key came right out!:)

Try graphite...you can buy it powdered but it is also what makes up a pencil's 'lead'. You need to squish some in between the key and the lock it's in. Then wiggle the key as much as you can to work the graphite in (not too hard or the key will break!). If the problem is a stuck tumbler the graphite will unstick it.

I have a suzuki xl7 2003 the steering wheel is locked. I move the steering wheel to the left to release the pressure, but I still can't turn the ignition


Elvira, You may have a shift interlock spring or cable problem. If you have already tried turning the steering wheel forcefully back and fourth and key is not turning, try and shift the car into park with a little force and pressing and releasing shifter button rapidly to release ignition key. Find a good locksmith or take vehicle into a good shop for diagnoses and estimate on repair. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Most likely the gear stick is not detecting the Park position. Try to shift the gear stick back and forth in the track and put it back in Park position. If this does not work then check if the steering lock is not stuck. Move the steering wheel left and right a few times and see if the ignition key moves. Otherwise a trip to the mechanic.

Ignition key is stuck in the cylinder


Did u try turning the steering wheel slightly in either direction? The steering wheel can 'jam' causing the key to seem stuck in the ignition. Simply turning the steering wheel a bit relieves the pressure and the key will turn. Let me know if this works for u

Ignition locked


if the wheel locked when trying to turn the ignition, that is not uncommon. Just simply turn and hold the steering wheel the opposite way, then you will be able to turn the ignition on.
