Make sure your steering wheel isn't locked. Sometimes a key won't turn until you jiggle the wheel while trying to turn the key.

How can I get key out which is stuck in ignition of 2008 cobalt. It also won't start


This can happen if the battery is low / dead. To solve, connect a set of jumper cables between the battery in the Cobalt and a running car's battery. Shut off the running car. In the Cobalt, make sure all accessories (lights, radio, fan, etc.) are off. Step on the brake, then move the gear shifter fully into the PARK position. Next, either attempt to start the engine, or turn the key to the OFF position and remove it from the ignition.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Ignition stuck key won't turn to start car!


Gear shift is not totally in the park position - had the same problem with a 2011 Acura TL - a rubber band kept the gear shift lever from totally seating in the park position.

2005 Blazer key won't turn in the ignition


You may want to try to slightly push / pull your vehicle to take weight / tension off the transmission, which in turn will allow you to turn the steering wheel enough to see if the ignition switch can be turned.

Why wont the keys come out of the ignition or even turn all the way off


Your ignition is shot would be the first thought, since it won't turn to the off position. Is your car engine shut off? If so try and start it or turn the key forward as far as you can and then try to turn it back. If no luck, remove negative battery cable and call it a night.

The wrong key got stuck in the ignition of my 2003 lincoln navigator. Now the right key will not turn over. The ignition is locked


Try turning the steering wheel to the left and the right while trying to turn the key , you may have set the steering lock after installing the wrong key , you may have to turn it kind of hard each way untill the the key turns once it starts you shouldn't have any problems after that.
