My key got stuck int he ignition after car started. Could not turn off car or pull out key. Had to remove fuse for ignition to turn off car so I can later tow it to mechanic to check out car and fix. Was not able to drive car since it would sometimes turn off when low idling at red light. Hope problem is just ignition lock that needs to be replaced.
Put key in ignition and it will not turn . Had to leave my car in Wendy's parking lot till tomorrow morning . This is the second time in six months that we have to put money into this car . The first time cost us around $ 1,200 . I'm sure this will cost around the same or more . I just can't win
2004 Asscender 2WD. Key will not turn when in ignition switch. Takes several tries but will eventually turn. This is starting to occur more often so I hope to replace the switch and resole the problem.
