Key stuck in ingnition

If your battery goes dead, the ignition locks the key in ignition switch. You put a new battery in and you'll be able to remove the key
your anti theft system may be enabled. Did you play with the power door locks before starting
Under the ign lock assbly there is a small plastic plug... pop the plug out and stick a small screw driver in...u should imediately feel a spring load button in there. Push up with the screw driver and turn key back, it will come out.

My key is stuck in the ingnition i found this little switch that is locking it in place,when i disconnect the switch my key comes out,can i leave that device disconnected?

Normally when a component of the ignition is disconnected it disables the steering. If the steering works and the car starts without it, it should be fine.

I have a 1993 buick lesabre. The security light is flashing and will not start. I checked the fuse it was ok. I tried our other key and still wouldn't start.

there may be a broken wire from the ignition swith going down the steering column,theres two sensors at the begining opening of switch, sometimes they get stuck and dont pop back out, in turn it doesnt touch the chip on the key and cant read it,take a look with a light use a small pic and push lightly on them and see if the y push in and pop out, if they do then replace ignition swith,theres a way to bypass,use an omh meter and measure resistance of key chip, then buy a resistor with the same value,and connenet to wires from switch under the dash,cut wires and put conecting the two going to switch with resistor connecting them together,heres a diagram,193b32f.jpg

you have to put the key in the ingnition and turn it to the on position (rite before the start possition) and walk away for about 20 min then go and start the car if this does not work then the key they cut isnt going to work for your car and thge whole ingnition switch will have to be switched out
