Default Key in Ignition Stuck

Hi Guys

Could use some help here. Just tried to start my 08GT and the battery died out out, Now the key is stuck in the ignition, Is thus due to the battery?

Appreciate and help

Thanks

Default Yes dead battery

You need to charge it up otherwise replace the battery. It will do a few cycles then things will start to work again after you run it and start it again.

Default Look next to ignition. Find the small hole. Poke it.

I was told by Maserati roadside that there is a small cut out or hole near the ignition. If you gently push a thin screwdriver into the hole it will release the key.

Good luck. Cm

The cutout is super close to the ignition, closer to the dash side. I can take a pic, but its easy to see, I'm sure you'll find it.
