2011 Hyundai Sonata: Key Stuck in the Ignition
September 13, 2010
We have a problem with our 2011 Hyundai Sonata. Turn on the car, shift into drive and roll around town. No problems there. Shift back into park and try removing the key. There is the problem. It's stuck in the ignition.
When we shift into park the doors unlock as programmed. So it seems like the key should just pull out. But that isn't the case. Multiple shifts in and out of park eventually trigger the mercy switch and the car releases the key. Next stop, dealership row.
