Try turning your steering wheel while turning the key. Sometimes the wheel lock will prevent the key from turning.

Sincerely,

SOURCE: Key Stuck

Lubricants will help this problem short term, but the only way to fix this is to replace the cylinder lock.
the tumblers inside are getting loose and not falling into place every time the key is in the off position.
If it is not fixed it will get worse until you are stuck somewhere with the key that wont come out at all.

SOURCE: Spare Key will not start the car.

no you don't have to have it done at dealership. i bought mine on ebay got it cut at walmart and it works. you need the two originals, turn the ignition to on and then off 4 times (i think it was) with the first two then put your spare key in and do the same. and it will work.

The timing is critical to this procedure, please read through the entire procedure before attempting.
Procedure:
1. Insert one of the pre-programmed transponder keys and turn the ignition to "on", leave on for at least one second (I wait until the red key symbol in the instrument cluster extiinguishes), remove the key from the ignition.
2. Within 5 seconds insert the second pre-programmed key and urn the ignition to "on" for at least one second but no more than 5 seconds (use the key symbol for this as well) then remove the second key.
3. within 10 seconds insert the new key in the ignition and turn the ignition to "on", if you are successful the red key symbol will illuminate then extinguish after about a second.

If you are not successful the red key symbol will flash repeatedly to indicate that you have inserted an invalid key. Remove the key, wait a minute and try it again, it took me a few times to get it perfect and I had done it before.

SOURCE: key stuck in ignition

Thanks for the advice about the cable. I reached under the steering column, pulled cable towards ignition, and voila! Key turned to off and came out. THANK YOU! This just goes along with the gas gauge that doesn't work on this car....

My key is stuck in the ignition of my ML 320 2000 benz it will start and shuts off but I cannot get the key out any suggestions


Make sure shift lever is all of the way into the Park position. Also make sure that the steering wheel is turned to a position where it can be locked.

Chances are that the key is not turning far enough back to release. The 2 issues listed above are the most common reasons a key won't turn all of the back.

Good luck!

97 Bravada keys locked in ignition, will not start, brakes locked


You need at least 10.5 volts in the electrical system for the ignition keys to release from the switch. Be careful that you don't damage the ignition switch, or your going to have to replace it if the passlock system is damaged. Good luck and boost the battery to get the keys out of the switch.

98 acura integra.....not getting spark to coils.....need help....car shut off on me while driving....will not start back up.....engine cranks but wont start....


is there power at the coil's electrical connector(key must be set to ON? Is some of your warning lights not lit(that normally light-up when key is on) such as airbag, abs, engine, battery etc??? If you answer yes to any of this, your ignition switch has failed. Acura/Honda models 97-02 have a recall on this in 2002 approx 1.5million vehicles affected. Symtoms include, intermitted speedometer/tach fluctuating to zero while car is in motion, intermitted stalling or no start(symtoms increase in hotter weather). The electrical contacts on these ignition switches are faulty causing shorts and archs within. Therefore power supply to vital engine electrical components are cut off. If this is the case, call your local Acura/Honda dealer with your vin# at hand, your vehicle may qualify for a free repair. Hopefully this helps....please rate thanks!!

Could be the ignition switch, if the green key light is flashing then the issue is the switch. There was a recall issued for the ignition switch for this car back in 03 for the 97 to 99 Acura CL.
