#1 of 4 2001 Blazer can't remove key
Dec 12, 2008 (4:38 am)
A few weeks ago, I was running around town and went to shut off the ignition. The key wouldn't come out of the ignition. I moved in and out of gears just to see if it wouldn't getting into park correctly and this didn't fix the problem. I actually ended up driving the car home. I left the car sit for a few hours and went to try it again. The key removed immediately. A few days later, the same problem happened and I have been unable to get the key out. Everyone I talked to said it was the ignition cylinder, so I replaced this with a part I purchased from my local dealer. After removing the old part, the key removed from the ignition. I installed the new part and the same problem occurred. I am at a loss on what the problem could me. I am by no means an expert at repairing cars, so I was hoping I could find some help here. Thanks for any ideas anyone can give me.

It looks like I found the problem. I have a lock part by the ignition and it is part# 26056147. When I disconnect it, it works fine, but when it is connected I can't pull the key out. I don't know if this part is necessary or not. Does anyone know? Everything seems to work fine so far.
