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?

    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 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.

What should we do?

Hi there,
There is a (silly) safety lock on the ignition to stop it starting in gear, or the key being removed if not in park, and a sensible safety lock on the gear shift to stop kids letting it roll down a hill. Try putting your foot firmly on the brake, press the park release button beside the gear shift, while pulling the shifter out of park and back into park.
Getting the key out: Sometimes the steering wheel is placing pressure on the steering lock and key release mechanism, so try turning the steering wheel in any direction it can go while trying to release the key. It should come only out when you are in park.

My honda civic model 2007 1.8 exi automatic key is not switching on

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.

My gear shift i stuck in park

check your brake light if they are working, if they do not work then your brake light switch is bad.
if the brake light is working, the shift inter-lock solenoid may be bad.
there is a small slot next to the gear shifter, put a key in there and push down while you shift out of park.

Ignition is locked

You can try a combination of things, one suggestion i have is to turn the wheel in any free motion it can, and turn the key, or PUSH the key into the ignition and try it that way, or there is a little push button to get the key turning.

92 accord - ignition / steering transmission 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.
