You’ve put your car key in the ignition and now it won’t come out. You can’t just leave your keys there, so what should you do?
First of all, don’t panic. If you start trying to force it out of the ignition, you may cause it to break and incur more damage than necessary.
There are a couple of common fixes that can save the day without calling for an auto locksmith service:
Turn the steering wheel
If you happen to turn the steering wheel even the tiniest bit when you are switching off the car, it may activate the steering wheel lock. This means you won’t be able to move the wheel as easily and cannot remove the key from the ignition.
This problem has an easy fix: wiggle the steering wheel while turning the keys. This should release both locks and allow you to remove the keys easily afterwards.
Wiggle the key
Sometimes, keys can just get stuck, or some components of the lock may be misaligned. While this is a sign that you may need to replace either the key or lock (or both) soon, today might not be that day. Try gently wiggling the car keys before trying to pull it out again.
Be careful when doing this: too much vigorous movement may result in the car keys breaking, or breaking the lock itself. If in doubt, call an expert.
Lubricate the ignition
The ignition cylinder might be a little stuck, but adding a little bit of lubricant can get the locks working well again. Use a silicon or graphite based lubricant — only use WD40 if you plan on changing the ignition cylinder out.
If your keys keep getting stuck, this may be a problem that only an expert automotive locksmith can fix. Keys can become damaged over the years from use (or misuse), meaning that getting a new set of car keys can solve most of your problems.
If you want to keep your locks in the best condition and protect your vehicle, it might be time to consider getting a replacement set of keys. Our automotive locksmiths can come to your location wherever you are in Melbourne and get to work on a new set of keys for your car straight away.
NOTE: If the key is broken and only part of it is stuck, DO NOT reinsert the top half. This will only push the other half deeper inside and will make removal more difficult. Call us instead, and our locksmith will be able to help.
