Key stuck in ignition and won't turn either way

Asked by Jul 02, 2015 at 12:08 PM about the 2003 Honda Pilot

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My key for a 2003 Honda Pilot got completely stuck in the ignition as I attempted to take it
out after I parked today. I was having some issues with it prior to today's incident as it was
sticky and needed extra effort to take out and start occasionally, but it never had
completely stuck as it has today. Any thoughts/suggestions?

Make sure the SUV is in park, push the shift lever all the way. There is a trans shift interlock solenoid that needs to activate before you can pull the key out. Also is your steering wheel locked? If not, then might be time for a new ignition lock cylinder and or switch.

There is slot on top of steering wheel console with a plug cover. Take it off and insert your other key. It will release.
