Sounds like a pin is stuck or turned.. myself i would lube the heck out of it and slide the key in and out in a violent manner.. maybe tap the key inside with a small hammer lightley.. also if you have a different key you can do this with that will slide in and try this then you can try the Core Key again... cold be lint from your pocket is jammed up in there too.. keep in mind these master pins are 20,000 in size.. *( very thin waffer pins ) you can also try a paper clip and try and RAKE the pins and see if you can "JAR" it loose again so it falls into place.

Where can I view a 1993 buick regal ignition removal instructions video? I have been trying but I am getting the run around.

Are you wanting to remove the ignition switch or the key cylinder? If it is the key cylinder and you have a tilt wheel, you'll need to rent the special tools necessary to remove the steering wheel and all the components under it to expose the cylinder. You'll have to disable the air bags before you do anything. The best way to do the job is to get a repair manual for the car at an auto parts store. It will give you a step by step instruction on how to do both the ignition switch and the key cylinder.

The Key FOB is stuck in the ignition. How can I get it to eject?

Most if not all vehicles have a Electronic Park Lock (EPL)/Ignition Lock Cylinder Control Actuator: If the vehicle is equipped with automatic transmission and a floor mounted console gear shift, it has an ignition lock cylinder control actuator system in the steering column. The ignition lock cylinder control actuator purpose is to prevent the ignition key from being turned to the OFF position when the transmission is in any position other than PARK and the vehicle may still be moving. The column ignition lock system consists of an ignition lock cylinder control actuator, and a park position switch that is located in the automatic transmission shift lock control switch. The ignition lock cylinder control actuator contains a pin that is spring loaded to mechanically prevent the ignition key cylinder from being turned to the lock position when the vehicle transmission is not in the PARK position. If vehicle power is lost, and/or the transmission is not in the PARK position the operator will not be able to turn the ignition key to the lock position and will not be able to remove the ignition key from the column. Or it has
Linear Shift Assembly: If the vehicle is equipped with a column mounted gear shift, it has a linear shift assembly on the steering column. The linear shift assembly has a cable that runs from the linear shift assembly to the ignition lock cylinder case. The purpose of this cable is to prevent the ignition key from being turned to the OFF position when the transmission is in gear and the vehicle may still be moving. The linear shift assembly cable contains a pin that is spring loaded to mechanically prevent the ignition key cylinder from being turned to the lock position when the vehicle transmission is not in the PARK position. If vehicle power is lost, and/or the transmission is not in the PARK position the operator will not be able to turn the ignition key to the lock position and will not be able to remove the ignition key from the column.
Your best bet is to take it to a ASE certified repair shop or the dealer ! The fix involves taking the steering column apart an or the floor shifter assembly ! Also electrical test to determine what is the problem !

2002 chevy ,monte carlo , how do i remove a locked key lock cylinder if i cant turn to the on position

The ignition needs to be in the ON position to be removed, if you can not turn it at all you will need to drill it out in order to remove it. The best place to start drilling is the retaining pin that holds the cylinder in place.

I have a 1989 cadillac seville and all of a sudden , the cruse control stop working and when I'm tring to start the car the information center says, wait 3 minutes , then I can start it.

the cruse and the wait to start are most likely not related, the systems are not in common and use to completely different control systems.

lets start with the cruse, what we see fail the most is the cruse switch in the steering collum and this is easy to check if you have access to a automotive scanner, all you need to do is run a switch test with the scan tool, if you don't have a scanner then it would be in your best interest to take this problem to a shop.

the wait to start, is because the pass key system in the car did not recognize the key when you stuck it in the key lock cylinder, this could be just a worn key, or it most likely is a worn key lock cylinder, we replace many of them each year so i think i would try a new key first if the paoblem persists then replace the key cylinder.

I am trying to intercede remotely via landline to someone removing an ignition key cylinder without the key. The vehicle is not stolen, key is lost.

Do you know what the year make and model is on this trying to determine which cylinder is in the vehicle? Best option would be to have a key cut by the dealer but if that is not an option there are a few ways around it but not really advisable.

I have a 93 Ford Ranger (2.3L 4cyl 5spd manual) and the key lock cylinder is going bad, meaning the key sticks & then won't turn the ignition for 2-4 tries, but then if I turn the ignition switch...

You will need a new lock cyl. which is best purchased from ford, the tumblers are the culpret in your situation, you shouldn't need to remove the steering wheel the cyl can be removed after taking the trim bessels off, also if yours has the big black plastic key you have a transponder antitheft system so it is best to us ford cyl and code it to your original key so no need to reprogram keys, IE aftermarket cyl w. new keys.
The cyl should be about 100+ depending where you live.

My 96 windstar always thinks there's a door open, complains the lights are on when the engine is running and all doors are closed, you can take the key out of the ignition anytime, and the interior light...

The interior lights in your Windstar are controlled by the GEM (Generic Electronic Module). AKA "Body Computer"

The switches for the courtessy lamps are located in the door latch mechanism in the door panel. They fail often. I have changed hundreds of them (On several different Ford models) for this same problem. They are relatively easy to replace once you have the door panel removed. They simply "twist" into place in the door latch assembly and have a 2 pin connector. They are also very inexpensive - about $15 to $20 a copy, depending on where you get them from.

The GEM also controls the "Battery Saver Relay" which is supposed to de-energize andshut off the lights after a specified amount of time to keep your battery from running down in the event that the lights are left on for some reason. If they are NEVER turning off, there may be a problem with the GEM or the Battery-Saver Relay could have stuck contacts.
It would be best to scan the GEM for fault codes.

As for the key being removable with the lock cylinder in any position, this could be caused by a worn lock cylinder or a worn-out key. I would try a different key before condemning the lock cylinder. Your best bet is to have a new key cut at the dealer using the VIN. That way, you will have a "known good" key to test the lock cylinder with. (Simply copying a worn-out key at the local hardware store will only produce a worn-out copy.)

1994 Camry Broken Passenger Lock Cylinder

Your best bet would to be remove the inner door panel, and remove the lock/handle assembly. Take the lock/handle to a professional locksmith; he will replace the internals of the lock to match your existing key. You cannot "buy" a lock cylinder that will match your key; it has to be assembled to match the key that you have.
