Key gets stuck in ignition

Post by M1chaelR » Fri Jul 20, 2018 8:05 pm

Hi all,

My other half has said the key has started to get stuck in the ignition over the past few days when trying to take the key out and it's happened to me now as well. After some fiddling with starting the engine again and putting the car into gear and then park again then it will release. I'll get it booked into the dealer but does anyone know what it could be?

Thanks,
Mike.

It may need some lubrication only. It's not necessarily broken or anything.

Thanks. The dealer has tried that this morning so fingers crossed that'll sort it :)

Hello,

I am also experiencing this problem. Can you tell me if the issue was rectified by lubrication please. Is this something that is covered by Vauxhall under warranty?

They first tried a little lubrication into the key barrel without removing it to see if it would sort it, as they couldn't fit us in straight away for a full diagnostic. It worked for a couple of weeks but it started jamming again. I booked a proper appointment then and they removed the key barrel to lubricate it all properly a week ago so fingers crossed that has sorted it. I'll update in another few weeks and let you know. I would have thought a replacement would be covered by warranty.
