Default Re: Key stuck after radio install

You probably locked the ignition by accidentally turning the steering wheel when installing the radio. I feel like it's an incredibly stupid nuisance feature if you accidentally do it, especially when you do not know it exists. Refer to this link:


If this doesn't work then pull the cover off the top of steering column and lightly tap the cylinder lock housing with hammer while turning the key.

If you can pull the key out of the ignition in the on position then the lock cylinder recall hasn't been done on your car. You will want to get it done ASAP because soon the key won't be able to unlock the cylinder which is required to replace it without drilling it out.
