Q: Key stuck in ignition of 2012 Chevrolet Impala

asked by on

My key is stuck in the ignition.

There is a common problem with this vehicles wiring harness that connects to the shifter. One of the wires has broke and lost its connection and will not engage the ignition release solenoid. I would recommend having a technician from YourMechanic inspect the ignition issue and diagnose the wiring harness for damage on the shifter and repair it as necessary.
