I'll I have to do on my 96 grand am is put the steering wheel all the way down (tilt steering) before putting it into park.

its all oabut hearing the click after the keys r all the way back slowly turn forward and try to pull them out ull here a click and they well slide right out

this used to happen to me, too... key would get stuck in the accessory position and my battery got drained twice. on the bottom of the steering column there is a little plastic square cover; pop it off and you will feel a round button; press this button and the key will come out even if it's not in the off position.

My 1996 Grand AM had the same problem. The keys would get stuck in the ignition. It turned out to be a worn out shifter. The shifter was not getting all the way into park.

I had the same problem on my 97. Like the poster above it was the shifter. There is a electric solenoid on the shifter. It's plunger is spring loaded so that when you go into park the solenoid deenergizes and allows the ignition switch to go all the way to the off posititon and release the key. The spring on the plunger gets weak or clogged with gunk and the plunger cannot drop to deenergize the circuit. The solenoid is riveted to the shifter so it cannot be changed. You will end up having to replace the shifter assembly.

hi; had the ignition key cylinder replace June 9,08 on a 1995 corolla. i could turn the key half way for the radio to come on; but could not turn all the way to start the car. i found out that you have to take it to the dealer to get it fix so that they can make the keys for it. the cost was around $425 with keys; what a hassel i went through.

not sure if it's the same on yours but on mine this is what i do. i leave the key in the ignition, i turn the ignition all the way back as far as it will go, tap on the key inwards and then try it again. on mine it's because my keys are worn down, yours might be the same, but it's worth a shot.

# Make sure the drivers front(left front) door is closed and you have your car keys. # Insert your door key into the drivers door and turn it to the locked position two times. # Then turn the key to the unlock position twice. # The alarm should be disarmed, now. # SECOND TECHNIQUE: # If not then take the ignition key and turn the ignition switch all the way ON then OFF then ON a second time and OFF again. # These are the procedures for nearly all factory alarm systems. # If neither of these works you probably have an after market(add-on) alarm system. Disarming a after market alarm system with your ignition key will be discussed in a future post. * This technique is only for use on your own car that you own and have keys for. If you don't have the keys- disconnect the negative battery cable to stop the horn until you get your keys. Then reconnect the negative terminal and proceed to step one. * Keys

Go to dealer, expensive, have to get one through them so key is the same as the original so you don't need two keys, door/ ignition. Tear apart steering column.

I am not sure what causes this, but I have had times when my ignition key would not turn. The solution to the main problem is to turn the steering wheel slightly. This usually allows the ignition key to turn.

With the keys out of the ignition push and turn to the right the mileage reset button and hold it in. Turn on the ignition so the lights come up on the dash. I held this for about 15 seconds.
