    I have an automatic Chrysler Neon(2.0L) and registered in 1996(UK).
    Last night the key got stuck and I cannot take it out.
    Its in the normal remove position and I cannot take it out. I can
    quite happily start and drive the car currently.

    1. Could someone please advise on the nature of the problem...?
    2. As I still have few months warrantly(from a local car dealer), will
    the fix be covered under warranty?
    3. Is it worth contacting Chrysler official dealer in London(UK) for a
    4. Can I check or do something by myself to see/fix the problem?

    Thanks in advance for oyur help.

    I'd try shooting a little WD40 in there.

    Much better, some "lock doctor" or colloidal graphite. WD40 just
    washes out any lubricant that might still be there.

    are you sure you are not turning the key too far back as there is an
    auxiliary position one notch back from normal removal position
