1. Try holding the shift lever against the "Park" position while taking the key out. 2. Try turning the steeringwheel to the left and or right while taking the key out. 3. Try to pres the key further into the switch, then turning it to the lock position, and take it out. 4. Try pressing on the brake peddle while taking the key out. This has worked on my daughter's 2001 Buick Regal.

There is an access cover just under the ignition cylinder. Remove this to remove the stuck key.

Well, it sounds like the chip that is in your key may have broke or got stuck on a part of the ignition. I had that problem. This happened not long after I had had to have the ignition replaced?!?

There should be a lock on the ignition a push button that you push and turn to remove the key

No, the ignition switch is not located in the tumbler assembly. If the key is stuck try turning the steering wheel each way while at the same time turning the key. If it will not come out then something is wrong with the assembly.

To remove a key that is stuck in the ignition on a Peugeot 406 HDI, make sure that the car is in park. Then try to remove the key. If this does not work, spray the ignition mechanism with WD-40 after pulling out the key as far as possible. Then work the key in and out until it comes out.

If the key is stuck in the ignition you will need to get it looked at by the dealer. One temporary solution is to pop off the cap next to the shifter console and you should be able to remove the key by sticking a pen in there.

Use the opportunity to replace the ignition. Key needs to be in On position for removal.

The tumblers in the key cylinder have most likely become stuck in the wrong position and you will have to replace the ignition key cylinder.

Wiggle the key as you turn the key while in the ignition switch. My 1994 gets stuck about once a month.

User Avatar

the tumblers have gotten out of sync, you'll probably have to have a new ignition switch put in

User Avatar

your key is probably wore out and tumblers are not moving

User Avatar

light a fire cracker and put it near the point of stuckness, you may need to buy a new ignition system but atleast the key will be out

If your 300zx has no power to the entire car and the key is stuck in the ignition you have to press the emergency button located in the ignition. Simply remove the black piece from your ignition.(its a black cap)..and when removed you will see a small red button..if you see that push that and press the "push" black button, turn your key and pop it out.

this is caused by ignition lock cylinder failure, you will have to replace the ignition lock cylinder and key.

User Avatar

If the ignition key remains in the first on position the steering wheel may be stuck. Another reason can include the lock cylinder is malfunctioning.

User Avatar

Put your key in the ignition put foot on brake and gently turn the key and the steering wheel. It is probably stuck because your wheels are turned.

There are several things that can cause a key to get stuck in the ignition. You can try turning the steering wheel a bit to the left or right to see if that allows it to release. Also, try pushing the key in a bit more and turn it to the lock position, then try pulling it out. Don't force the key or it could break off in the ignition.

A key will not be released if it is not in the OFF position only. If it is any other position, the key sticks.
