Default Ignition

This is a stupid question but I just bought a 2001 pt cruiser and I don't know how to take the key out of the ignition. I just turn it off and jiggle and push until it comes out.

If it's an Automatic, make sure that the shift button on the top of the ball if fully out. Turn the key to Run than move the shifter to Reverse than back to Park...this will usually release key. If not, you might need to replace your ignition switch.

No it's not a problem with the car I don't know how to normally take the key out, on my truck you just pull the key out, but on my moms Acura you push it in then turn it back, idk how to normally take the key out

If it's automatic and the key is turned in the right direction (OFF) than the key should just pull out without any hesitation.

Hmm I think what I've had to do is turn it off and move it up on position and push it in and it comes out. It's a 2001 automatic touring edition by the way

Twisting the key all the way towards you is the accessory position - gives power to things like radio with engine off - turn one click toward front of car to OFF to remove key.
One click forward from OFF is ON - where engine runs, after you turn all the way to front of car for START.
