Why could the key get stuck in the ignition?

because stupid, YOU GOT THE WRONG KEY Typically, the most common reason for the key to be "stuck" in the ignitions, is that the steering wheel is turned from the center position, which causes the ignition interlock feature to be "jammed".

If you have the key and it won't turn the lock cylinder try jiggling the steering wheel while turning the key.

On the other hand if you don't have the key or the lock itself is jammed you may want to replace the lock cylinder.

How do you replace an ignition tumbler in a 1971 Mustang when the key is broken off and the ignition will not turn in the on or acc position?

The removal procedure for the ignition lock cylinder entails using the key to turn the cylinder to the ACC position, inserting a pin into the small hole on the front, and continuing to turn counter-clockwise. If you simply don't have a key, you could have a locksmith make on based on one of the door locks, assuming they are keyed the same. If the cylinder is jammed due to parts of a key being inside, and you cannot remove them, the typical solution (for any lock) is to drill out the cylinder by drilling a small hole that renders the pins and the necessity of a key useless. Once again, a locksmith's job.

How do you change the ignition lock cylinder on your 2003 Dodge Durango?

Are you sure the key is inserted in all the way, try it with a different key. Make sure the wheels are not turned either fully to the right or left. You may have to remove the panels around the ignition cylinder to see if anything is restricting the cylinder from turning all the way. I know normally you must put it in the run position in order to be able to remove the cylinder but, have you tried removing it while it was in the locked position. You might be able to press the cylinder lock pin with it in the lock position. It could be that a tumbler has come loose and jammed cylinder.
