Default 1995 Honda Accord key won't go to off position

Hello, I have a 1995 Honda Accord that I have a problem with. When I turn the car off I can't get the key to go to the off position. Does anyone have any suggestions for me? Please help.

I guess you know that you have to push the key "in" to make it turn to the off position...
I'll check my haynes manual and keep you posted
Good luck

Can you shift out of Park? If not, check brake lights. No brakes lights means the brake light switch which closes when brake pedal is pushed is stuck in open position.

If brake lights are OK, the keyswitch assy may be faulty.

Try twisting steering wheel slightly to unload the key lock also.

good luck

Hello. Thanks, I am leaning towards a faulty ignition switch. My brake lights come on and you can hear the safety switch when you press on the brake pedal. Now for the next step do you know how to replace the ignition assembly? Thanks a lot.

See the Online Manuals link and download the 94-97 Accord manual. There is an explanation of how to replace the keyswitch assy. The headless bolts that hold the switch assy in place can be removed w/ a sharp chisel striking bolt head at an angle to turn.

good luck
