Why is my key stuck in the ignition?
Even if you use your car keys only twice a day, it’s still a considerable number of operations. However, while using them for their intended purpose, many of us have developed a habit of playing with them while waiting on a line, talking with people, or simply being distracted by something else. Many times keys are placed at the edge of a desk or counter and find their way to the floor in a big splash of sound. These little mishaps can cause damage to your keys. No wonder an object that bears so much attention can suddenly break, stop working, or get stuck in the ignition. The last scenario tends to be even more frustrating than breakage. If the key sometimes seems to be acting a bit stubborn it may seem that the only thing you need is to apply a bit more power and pull the key out. Unfortunately, this might complicate things even further because a stuck key is a problem that almost always needs professional intervention. However, there are cases where you can resolve the issue yourself. Just keep on reading and you will find the answer by reading our new blog post.
