Key stuck in ignition

Key has been stuck in ignition for 2 months. Have tried jiggling key, repositioning gear shift In and out of PARK, turning steering wheel while trying to unstick key.

Try asking on this web site…

I would suggest telling us what make model and year car you have would help. I am going to guess you will need a new lock. Usually it is cheaper to have a local locksmith do the work, but not always.

Same thing happened to me with my 2000 Ford Focus ZTS. I had to get a new cylinder each time. The cost was $115.
