Key stuck in ignition

Asked by Jun 13, 2016 at 05:04 PM about the 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2008 Chevy Cobalt. I left the key in the ignition a few days ago, like I
usually do. And today I tried starting my car but it doesn't start. I don't know if
it's the battery. The dashboard doesn't show anything and the stick doesn't
move either. Also, the key is stuck in the ignition and it doesn't let me turn it to
lock position.

Try turning your steering wheel (may take a little effort) as you turn the key. It may be the steering lock making your ignition stiff. Don't bend your key. When you turn the key to start the car are there any noises at all.. does it sound like its trying to start?

there is a key release under the steering column inside the lil hole there is a nipple like button press it and the key will come out
