Car won't start, ignition locked
Saturday afternoon, I removed both
headlights to replace the bulbs. Everything
went smoothly and was put back in fine.
After that. I started the car and ran some
errands, again no issues.
That same night, I went to a friend's, got in
my car, turned the key...
Nothing happened, absolutely nothing. No
lights turned on, the engine made no noise,
it was like it was 100% dead.
Frustrated, I went to turn the car off, and
now the key won't turn.
It was stuck in the on/accessory position.
I hit the release button under the steering
wheel and was able to get the key out.
My question is what could have happened ?
Or gone wrong ? Any ideas would be
Sounds like your battery is dead, some GM cars wont let you remove the key if there is no power in the battery,
Yep ,,, a dead battery won't allow key removal
I know this is a while later but thank you so much. It was the battery.
