So on my 2006 Chevy Aveo I could not get they key out and it was stuck in park .I stopped hearing the click sounds when I stepped on my break.It will change gears if I press the shift release I changed the...


Are your brake lights working? Shift lock solenoid needs to receive a signal from your brake pedal switch so if you have lights out or blown fuse it could lock in park.

Key stuck in ignition when car is in park


Turn ignition on. Put you foot on the brake and rack through the gears to Drive and then back to Park. Ignition Off and remove the key. It has worked for me three times. The first time, I phoned the dealership and that was their advice which worked.

The charging light will be a separate issue.

Key stuck in ignition of ford focus. column not locked


I had this same problem with my 2006 ZX4 Ford Focus. My focus has an automatic transmission. In order to get the stuck key out of the ignition, I discovered that there is sort of a "ring" on the gear shift that will sometimes slip down a little and cause the ignition to lock the key in place. The ring is located just benenth the plastic gear shift handle, right on the end there. If you push the ring up, you should be able to get the key out of the ignition. I found this out by accident. I know that sounds weird, but it actually works; at least it did for me. At first, I thought I hadn't put the gear in park. The ignition will not release the key if the gear isn't in park or if the steering wheel isn't in its lock position. I think most cars work on this principle; that wasn't the case here. For all of you 2006 Ford Focus owners out there having this problem, try my suggestion and I would also spray some WD-40 in the ignition hole too ( after you get the key out) . I hope this helps you folks out there. Good luck and have a nice day!:)

2006 chevy cobalt LT. the key is stuck


Have you tried shifting the gears completely through and then putting the car in park. It sounds like the car isn't able to be put completely in park to release the key. Try putting the car in N and removing the key. Even thought the car may not completely be in park to release the key, The gear most likely is in park but not enough to make the switch/sensor to release.

When you turn ignition on it releases a cable that is attached to the shifter also the shifter has a solenoid attached to it that is released when you step on the brake. Both times that I had the problem of button stuck and cant shift out of park the solenoid was sticking and wouldnt release .
