: Big problem

12-25-04, 12:30 PM
Hey I have an 03' CTS wih an automatic transmission. I was lightly hit in the rear, and now for some reason I couldnt get the car to drive when I put it in Drive or Reverse and etc... So I turned off the car and tried turning it back on again and now it wont even start and my key wont come out!!! I don't know whats going on, is there some sort of sensor in the rear that would do this??

Thanks for any help!!!!

(I have done this)make sure the car is in park before you try taking out the key or starting it because it will not start in Drive 3 2 etc, as for it not moving maybe the differential has a problem.

I know the car has to be in park to be able to remove the key or start the car. It still wont turn on or come out.. A sensor would do this in the back bumper?

Ohhh maybe it is the emergency fuel shut off sensor. When you get involved in a rear end colision the fuel system locks up so gas does not keep goin to the engine or through a broken fuel line and catch fire. Sorry to think you had it in D and tried to start it.
