The key wont come out of my car HELP

The steering is locked as the key is removed so it is clear quite a lot happens as the key is being removed. The inside of the steering lock is fairly complex and it would seem one of two things is happening or not happening; either the mechanism that releases the pawl that locks the steering is jammed or something has broken inside the lock preventing the steering lock being turned fully anti-clockwise into the position where the key can be withdrawn. In either case it is likely the only cure is the replacement of the lock assembly, lock barrel and key.

Removing the steering column shroud and tapping the lock body while working the key could temporarily release it but it is unlikely.

1998 Ford Escort steering wheel lock will not unlock. Seems jammed.

The steering wheel was turned when the key was removed. So when you try to turn on the key, turn the wheel one way and the other way to release the pressure on the key. The key should turn ok.
Hope this helps.

2010 corolla key stuck in ignition

It can be faulty ignition lock cylinder.I suggest to wiggle the steering wheel a bit and see if the key gets released out.If that is not helping then first turn steering wheel to right and try removing the key,or next turn steering wheel to left and see if you can remove the key.
Spray wd-40 in the ignition key hole and let it remain there for few minutes,after that once again try to remove the key and see if that helps.
But if that is not helping then ignition lock cylinder has to be removed out and key has to be manually removed.
For more troubleshooting on these types of issues,i suggest you to refer the help links mentioned below.Its the accurate solutions mentioned in it.that will help you to narrow the problem:-----

How to remove the clutch pedal ignition lock switch from a ford ranger edge 2004? The back end of the rod that go towards the engine is giving me the most trouble removing.

1 Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery using a 1/2-inch wrench. The battery in the 1995 Mustang is located on the driver-side of the engine compartment behind the headlight assembly. Wait 15 minutes to allow the residual charge in the air bag system to discharge and the air bag system to be disabled. This will prevent accidental deployment of the air bags.

2 Remove the steering column trim cover screws, located on the bottom of the steering column cover behind the steering wheel, using a screwdriver. Lower the tilt steering wheel fully. Unsnap the two halves of the trim cover from each other and remove them.

3 Turn the ignition key to the run position. Insert a 1/8-inch punch into the small retaining pin hole, located below the lock cylinder housing, and depress the retaining pin. Slide the old cylinder out of the housing.

4 Turn the key to the run position in the new ignition lock and insert the new ignition lock into the housing. Turn the key to the off position to lock the new cylinder into the housing. Turn the ignition key to the off position and pull on the ignition lock to verify it is securely installed. Reinstall the steering column trim covers. Reconnect the battery and tighten the cable clamp bolt securely.

Fig. Lock cylinder drill point.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the steering wheel, then remove the steering column covers.
  3. Remove the turn signal and wiper switches.
  4. Disconnect the ignition switch wiring.
  5. On some models, the hole in the lock body for removing the ignition lock cylinder was not drilled by Volkswagen. To make the hole, use the following measurements in conjunction with the illustrations. Drill the hole where "a" and "b" intersect on the lock body. The hole should be drilled 0.19 inch (3mm) deep
  6. Remove the lock cylinder by pushing a small drill bit or piece of wire into the hole and pulling the cylinder out. It might be easier to insert the ignition key, turn it to the right a little and pull on it.

To install:
  1. Insert the lock cylinder into the housing with the key in the cylinder.
  2. While gently turning the key side-to-side, press the cylinder in to the stop. It should click into place.
  3. Temporarily fit the steering wheel onto the splines, then make sure the column locks and unlocks smoothly.
  4. Install the switches, column covers, wiring and the steering wheel.
  5. Connect the battery cable.

  9. Insert the ignition key and unlock the cylinder, then detach the wiring connectors.
  10. Once all wiring has been detached, slide the housing off the steering column.
  11. Mark and drill the lock cylinder as shown and described in the above procedure.
  12. Compress the stop spring and pull the lock cylinder out of the steering column housing.
