The reason the key is stuck is because the shifter linkage is out of alignment. To remove the key just remove the black plastic piece the surrounds the ignition key , use a finger nail file or something similar , it pops out pretty easy , then you will see a little "Red" colored button , push the button in , you now will be able to push the black button in and the key can now be removed. I know I'm a genius !

There's a button under the the key on the ignition terminal. Push it and pull out the key!

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.

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.

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.

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

your key is probably wore out and tumblers are not moving

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

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