Wrong car key stuck in ignition of 02 Mazda Tribute and won't release.

Asked by Oct 28, 2014 at 11:49 AM about the 2002 Mazda Tribute

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Is it a security issue with a timed release, if so how long will it take? Wiggling steering wheel is not working. Happened years ago and had car towed. When dealer mechanic simply pulled key out, no one seemed to know what had happened. What can we do short of towing again?

Call a locksmith. Sounds like the key is physically stuck.
