key stuck in ignition

Is the key broke off? if it is not broken off make sure gear selector is in park.If it is broke off I have been able to pick keys out using a needle or a dental pick.


turn your steering wheel hard to either side. this should free up the key to be able to turn it.

when you park your car make sure the clutch is disangage .then you can remove the key same problem is with my Volvo s40

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.

Key stuck in ignition?

This can be attributed to a couple of things. In order to remove the key you can remove the plastic piece under the ignition switch to expose a key release button. OR you can drill out the small circle in the area below the ingnition switch to access the key release button.The stuck key may be a faulty ignition switch or a bent shift lever. This causes the lever to not make the release solenoid contact. If you slammed it into park you make have bent the contact point on the control arm.Faulty ignition switches are a common failure.

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.
