2000Honda crv with 56000miles. Recently when I turn my car off, the key does not come out of the ignition. The car motor/engine is off but the car is in the auxilary stage--you know when the radio only is on.
The only way I can get the key out is if I disengaged the battery. This can be tiresome. Turn off the car---open the hood---raise the hood---(make sure I have my pliers in the car :wink: :wink: )--disconnect the battery---get back in the car---take the key out---close the hood---gathering my belongings---lock the door---go in the house or where ever I 'm going.
When I ask my mechanic what was wrong, he just wanted to know how I knew to disconnect the battery. :Roll: :roll:
He tried, at first he couldn't get the key out either, and then he said the shifter must not be compelety in the "park" mode. "All I had to do is jiggle it."
Jiggling worked once. Jiggling frustated me more.
I made an appointment with my HOnda dealer but I am scared to tell him the problem fearing it may be too exspensive.
Does this problem sound complicated to fix or should I just trade her in?
TIRESOME is my best option because the car does work.
have the same problem?
