I can't get the keys out of the ignition, no, 2007 Ford 500,

Customer Question

I can't get the keys out of the ignition
JA: Is the key stripped or worn?
Customer: no
JA: What is the model/year of your Ford?
Customer: 2007 Ford 500
JA: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I went and had the oil changed this morning and they had trouble resetting whatever turns off the oil change reminder. I have put the car in park and even moved it and put it in park again, turned the steering wheel thinking that the steering wheel was locked, and I think that is all that I have tried
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: no

Hello my name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and I am glad to help you out with your question.

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

I do not think this is related to have the oil changed of the resetting the reminder.

This is a key interlock problem. Your key interlock solenoid could be sticking, it may need to be replaced. Sometimes taking them apart and adding some grease is all that is needed.

There are a few steps involved to diagnosing this problem.
