Hello, I'm Cam. Please include all the details about your issue so I can accurately advise you. I cannot see your vehicle so please be detailed.

GM Tech (Cam) :

Does it seem like it does not turn that last bit back to lock

Customer:

It will turn on but I can't turn it back far enough to get the key out

GM Tech (Cam) :

OK, That is likely the igniton interlock solenoid or switch on the transmission. DO you have a test light?

Customer:

no

GM Tech (Cam) :

Ok, for the time being there should be a small plug under the key area,. pull that off and push a pen into there or a small long device to push the bottom of the solenoid to releas your key.

Customer:

key is out thank you

GM Tech (Cam) :

Is there more I can get for you today?

Customer:

no I don't think so
