    hi does your check engine light also come on?

  • Anonymous Apr 17, 2009

    I just had the same problem today. I turn off the engine but the key won't turn all the way for it to come out. The battery light is on along with all the other lights on the instrument panel.

I had same problem. I would sometimes also leave the door open with lights on inside for 5 mins - then I could not start car, and key would not release.

I had a bad cell in the battery. Replaced the battery and all worked fine.

    As a heads up, when I replaced the battery I fixed the ignition problem. However I caused a new issue with my HVAC. It turns out that by replaceing the battery you can de-calibrate the actuators that control your HVAC venting, which ducts are used, and also the temp control. So I would reach out to some more folks on the forums and see if there is a "state" that the ac system should be put in (maybe bi-level or even off) prior to disconnecting the battery. I have not yet fixed my vent issue so I wished I knew about it before I pulled the battery. Good luck and please share what you learn.

Sounds like the anti theft system is active m try this process. Turn the key on. Do not attempt to start. Wait 10 minutes. Turn key off. Turn key on. Wit for theft light to go off. Now attempt to start.

The ignition key in 2002 Toyota Sequoia won't turn. Do I need a new lock cylinder or should I try other things first?


This is caused by the accumulation of metal shavings in the ignition switch cylinder from year's of internal wear. The cylinder can be removed and cleaned, oftentimes resolving the sticking issue. It requires some removal of panels and dismantling of components, which can be intimidating if inexperienced. A dealer will definitely only put in a new unit, as no one cleans parts anymore. Check YouTube under 'cleaning of ignition switches/cylinders' and you'll see a step by step procedure for the process. This can help you decide whether you want to tackle the job yourself.

2006 ION, 2.4, manual trans, 101,000 miles. Never had any problems until arriving home today. Ignition key will not turn to off and cannot be removed. Only way to stop engine is to set the brake, start in...


sounds like a bad key switch. the key needs to go in start car then turn off and be removed. you say the key cannot be removed. Is the key still in there? if so you need a new key lock drum. and/or a new ignition switch behind the actual key lock.the key lock can be removed and the electric switch is down in there. once the key lock is out you can start with a screwdriver. the mew key lock will come with a new key and snaps right in. to remove the old key lock refer to a manual for procedure.

KEY WONT TURN IGNITION


Your car uses a transonder key, a key with a small chip embedded inside. The transponder is matched to the immobilizer unit in your car. When the key is inserted into the ignition, the immobilizer searches for that transponder, if it's not near the ignition, the car will just keep turning over and not start. Your only real options are to replace the steering lock or buy a transponder bypass unit, which I do not recommend. Just do a google search.

Can't get the key out of the ignition


Did you try turning the stearing wheel while trying to turn the key? Sometimes there is too much turning pressure remaining on the wheel when the car is stopped to allow the key to be removed.

Start the car, turn the wheel 1/2 turn either way will work but towards strait is preferred. With your foot firmly on the brake, shift the car from park to drive and back to park and than try stopping the car and removing the key.

1986 Thunderbird Starting problem, Turn key starts, let go of key stops


Replace the ignition tumbler--i.e. get a new ignition set with new key. This will require removing the plastic trim around the steering column and removing the old ignition set. It's a good DIY project, but you should get a Haynes manual for 83-88 T-Bird/Cougar. Try going to a junk yard for the replacement part. Crown Vics, Cougars, Grand Marquis', Lincolns all have the same type of set for those years.
