Mine does this too. just move the steering well all the way up, then feel for an opening underneath. stick your finger in there and feel for a button. press the button, then your ignition will let your key out, provided you have it in park and you have turned it off.

Why i cant remove my key with my jeep in park


Possibly the shift cable is worn out and the transmission does not completely go into Park. A broken bracket that holds the cable in place could be another reason. It must be completely in park before the key can be removed from the ignition. Just because the indicator shows that it is in park, does not mean that it is fully in park.

Make sure that the Shifter is in neutral or park. If that doesn't help, check the fuse and relay indicated for you started in the fues panel.

Key stuck in the ignition. Position indicator


Hi there,
try turning the wheel to the right/left while turning the key in the ignition. You have to apply some force. Your car is probably outliving its road life.

Ignition key wont turn


Make sure car is in park then try moving ignition switch back towards you and then forward as if trying to start it. That seemed to work for our 86 Dodge 600 auto.

It wont start.


If the linstrument or parking lights don't dim slightly as you turn the key in the ignition switch there is a high probability that the problem is with the ignition switch electrical contacts or the related wiriing, not the key. If the problem was the key it would not rotate, just as a padlock or door lock would not rotate. Also check the ignition coil to make certain the wiring is iintact and that the coil is producing a spark to the spark plugs. Be careful not to get shocked by the high voltage output of the coil.
