I have a 2005 grand prix gt. The key will not turn off all of the way, even with the car in park. Without touching the brake, I can shift from park to drive. The key won't come out

This didn't work for me.

Are you by any chance parked on a hill hard up against a curb? just a thought..if you are you are going to have to relieve the pressure from the tire which will in turn release your steering, then wiggle on wheel then it will come out

It's parked in my garage.


Are your brake lights out too? If so, it's going to be the brake light switch. Otherwise it'll be the shifter. The problem is the car "thinks" it's in gear or you've got your foot on the brake, when you don't. HTH. -Jim
