Hi, I have a 1991 Chevy Cavalier V4 with about 165,000 miles on it. As I
turned off the engine yesterday, I noticed the key would not come out of the
ignition. I made sure the automatic transmission was in "Park", which it
was. And I also tried turning the steering wheel to both extremes, to see if
this would help, but it didn't. I tried wiggling the ignition cylinder; and
also tried turning the steering wheel while turning the key from "Lock" to
"On", all with no luck.
Someone suggested it might be a stuck pin (the key apparently won't come out
unless all pins are lose?).
Does anyone have any advice about this? Right now I am using two clubs and a
rag to make sure no one steals my car! Thanks!
