2009 vue greenline wont turn off completely - canít get key out
Hey as the title says,
My 2009 Saturn vue greenline is sitting in the driveway with the key still in the ignition because it wonít fully turn off and I canít get the key out. Itís stuck in that purgatory between engine on and off.
Iíve tried moving the car around into different orientation and switch from drive to park about a million times to no avail.
Is there anyway I can manually override whatever is preventing me from turning fully off, or do i just need to wait for some sorry person to steal this POS?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Re: 2009 vue greenline wont turn off completely - canít get key out
There are several ways for keys to remain locked, preventing removal. Tried googling 'can't remove key from ignition' for suggestions? Most stuck keys are either poor copied keys, worn lock cylinder or shift mechanism, each preventing key removal. As you found out, trying several times of shifting into Park didn't work but other circumstances may contribute to a stuck key. Parking on level ground, pulling up the Park brake while brake pedal is pressed then making sure the steering wheel is straightened and not turned left or right allows less strain on the steering wheel lock when a key is removed. Shifting into Park is supposed to allow key removal when ignition is turned off. A combination of mechanical and electrical devices are used. Worse case scenario is calling a vehicle locksmith for help.
