Q: The key is stuck in the ignition.

asked by on

I have a 2006 Chrysler Pacifica and the key is stuck to the ignition how can I get it out?

My car has 106340 miles.

Hi there. The shift interlock on these vehicles can sometimes break a small plastic lever that will not let the key turn to the lock position. You may need to have the shifter mechanism replaced. Have a local expert come and inspect the stuck ignition in person in order to let you know what should be done next.
