I have the same problem, going to have a locksmith make sure its the ignition switch and cylinder and just not a key problem or a tumbler problem.

Most likely its an Ignition Switch/Cylinder issue unless you know that you have an alarm system that has the ability to lock the ignition switch. Other issues is that it could also be the Tumbler. If its stuck, best bet is to either call a locksmith and have them check it out, or have it towed to a garage that you trust.

Check all the wire coming out of the ignition switch, make sure that theres no bare wire or shortage between them or to the body..If wires are ok, your ignition switch needs to be replaced.. the switch doesn't turn with the cylinder..

Switch or relay? The switch is in the dash to the left of the steering wheel. The relay is in the fuse box out in the engine compartment, check the lid of the fuse box to determine the relay location within the box.

I would check the transmission safety switch. If it's faulty you will not be able to get your key out.

Check the kill switch. and the ignition switch. If no power check all fuses.

Things to check are: ignition switch, manual lever position switch, ignition relay, your starter, and last, your battery. Check all wires, cables and connections for condition and cleanliness.

you must check the brake pedal release switch it will have probably failed at the same time as the ignition switch was replace by coincidence or you bumped the wire off replacing the ignition switch

If you need to remove your ignition switch, you should consult your owners manual. Check for a guide on how to remove and replace and follow the instructions.

There are pages and pages of things that can cause a check engine light. You need to have it checked with a scantool. Then the code can be diagnosed and repaired.
