Lexus stuck key


#1

Have a 1997 Lexus LS400. After a normal drive and place the car in park the key will only turn to the ACC position and am unable to remove the key.

There are two ways to get it out:

  1. Unhook the battery and the key will turn to the lock position and is easlier removed.
  2. The second way to turn the key on and engage the starter for a split second, not starting the car, then the key will turn to the lock position and can be removed.

Help!?!?!?!?

Have you tried rocking the steering wheel a little bit?
