IGNITION KEY

2004 Pontiac Aztek

Electrical problem
2004 Pontiac Aztek Automatic

The ignition will not turn all the way into the off, so the key is stuck in the car in the accessory position.

I had the same thing happen to my 2004 aztek. I took it to the dealer and found it was the cable in the steering colunm to the shifter. They couldn't get me in for 3 days, but they showed me how to release the key from the ignition. There is a small hole on the bottom of the steering colunm, right below the ignition, you can use a pen and push up on the cable and turn the key to the off position, this will work till you get the cable replaced. I hope this helps since we have the exact same vehicle and exact same problem.
