Customer Question
Hi, my kia soul...

Hi, my kia soul had its key turned to the accessory function and the key was pulled out before the ignition was turned back to off. The key will now not go back I to the ignition to be able to turn the car on.

Mechanic's Assistant: Can you turn the steering wheel at all? And what about the key? Is it worn or damaged?

Yes the steering wheel turns. No the key is not work, it's a 2017 soul

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Soul yourself? What have you tried so far?

No not fixing. My granddaughter was listening to the radio and forgot and pulled the key out while it was still in that position

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's it. I'm stuck
